Is it worth it for flight arriving 8pm and leaving 8:40am?
I arrived early morning and left early the next morning. Stayed at the Hyatt capital gate. No regrets, the suite was massive.

Or they couldn’t leave their villa because of the door sensor they didn’t deactivate

Or because the fire burned the gartel tied to the door handle and they were afraid they wouldn't be able to get back in.

Wow! 4500 posts later... I only have a few questions

There are outlets behind the counter in the bar but make sure the switch is turned on.

If your staying for shabbos ask them to contact engineering to remove a small magnetic strip on the fridge so it would not activate upon opening.

Dont leave your bungalow late at night there is a sensor wich activates the outdoor lighting after a certain time [past 10 I believe, but not exactly sure]

I had a tasty cholent on shabbos!!!
I'm assuming you're referring to the S. Regis?

1) Why are you pointing out the outlets behind the bar?
2) Any other shabbos tips? or shaylos that you asked about (or didn't, but realized when you were there?  ;) )
3) How did you have cholent? You left your burner on for the whole shabbos?


To follow up on this: I picked a random day in July (7/9) and looked back 10 years at the historical weather in Male
Can I ask which website you got this from? I would want to plug in 5 days in a row in August to see the historical data of a bigger subset. Thanx

The one sneaky thing is the 22% on everything. Even the seaplane - you think its $645pp - more like ~$800pp after all is said and done.

Food/Drink -  22% on everything plus theres a line for tips  :D

Whatever prices you see there, add 22%
Is there is 22% tax on top of the $695 seaplane fee?

Some hotels are adding destinations fees... including St Regis Maldives.
When/Where does this show up? Doesn't say anything when I make a new award reservation right now
