Why only those two? If you want only a speedboat away for Male there is also a Holiday Inn to use free nights.
I'm just asking for a friend, these are what he likes I guess.
If you have my email PLEASE don't PM me :)

Why go all the way to the Maldives and stay at a HI?

I don’t know if anyone actually is going to be able to help you because most of us wouldn’t  travel all the way to the Maldives and stay at these hotels...not being judgemental, just stating a fact.

Lucky, on OMAAT, did a TR of the Sheraton and you could start with that.

Kosher Food Gemach officially open in St. Regis Maldives!
When our butler brought us to our room we happened to notice in his golf cart was Shibolim spelt matzah crackers that someone had just left behind. As my husband tries to keep away from wheat this was a nice surprise.  So we decided when we left to  leave some of our extra food if anyone can use.  We left some cans of corn, Tradition soups and in the freezer double wrapped mashed potatoes from Sri Lanka Chabad.  If you can use any of the food ask as our butler Saddam who said he would keep it for a a few weeks? months?.  If you have any extra food when you leave you can give it to him to add to the food gemach.
BTW, you can ask for a specific butler and a specific room. They try to accommodate if they can. Before we went I saw that Saddam was highly recommended, especially as he is great about taking care of our kosher meals.  The only thing he is not good with is that he didn't let us know about the extra activities that they offer. Not sure if because thought wouldn't be interested or not so you need to ask him if anything extra going on (ie: exercise class, free drinks, tennis).
