Has anyone ever had issues with mosquitos while in the Maldives? Sounds like itís a good idea to apply repellent but just not sure how big of an issue it is.

I didn't see any, but the general consensus on the ground is to apply repellent.

Correct, there are a few around and all the resorts spray for them daily, but apply bug spray.

For the seaplane transfer: In addition to the 5kg allowed for a rollaway, can you also bring a small purse/backpack? Or will they weigh that too?

When I try to see reward availability at SR, the OWV always come up as a premium redemption, costing 100-140K per night. Am I doing something wrong? How are other people getting OWV at SR for the base 60K redemption, or is everybody paying the upcharge for it?

They got it before when it was a glitch and pricing out wrong. You can only get a garden room for 60K now
