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).

Love it, thanks for sharing!

Sorry for the Noob question (I'm a hotel noob)

Do all golds and Diamonds get free breakfast at the conrad? that's what is seems from from this thread but based on Hiltons website it seems that the Conrad MLE doesn't provide breakfast, rather just wine and chocolate/fruit

http://hiltonhonors3.hilton.com/en/explore/benefits/maldives.html

second question, I'm hilton Gold booked into a OWB, is there any reason why I should try hard to get Diamond status before I go?

Thank you

If I recall correctly, Diamonds get full breakfast.  The link you shared represents additional benefits to Diamonds/gold members specifically for not being able to offer room upgrades.

so in short, if I'm a gold confirmed in OWB, there's no reason I should make myself crazy to get Diamond status before I go, right?

thanks everyone

No clue.
I booked a standard OWV and was upgraded to sunset at check-in.
