I would have to see a SR garden Villa to comment on that, I'll bli neder do so for you before I leave. At the Conrad we did 4 days at each
it has nothing to do with the room. Dan said if youíre not going to be in the Ocean then donít shlep to the Maldives. So I was asking where would he suggest you go instead that isnít such a shlep

Does anyone have any recommendations on any specific health practices they usually follow when going to the Maldives? Going to Angsana Velavaru for the first time with my wife in February.

- Shots to take before traveling there?
- Best health practices while there? (obviously drinking bottled water)

Many thanks for any tips! :) I figure there's not much health risk there, but just wanted to check!

@EJB You're right - it's 2500sq ft.

Seeing some chatter about the angsana velavaru. Isnít that the place with the price mistake? Didnít they cancel everybodyís bookings? @petermw you took their offer for 50% off?

My ressy hasn't (yet) been cancelled. But it's less than likely that I'll take it.

@Hjay yep I was able to convince them to honor their pricing instead of cancelling /taking 50% offer.

Who was your butler?

I heard $50-$150 was standard based of reading TA and other threads.
