From what I understand non kosher wines and alcohol is also insanely priced but people just chalk it up to Maldives pricing and cough it up as part of their vacation expense. Maybe not as expensive as this list where a $10 bottle is over 100 bucks but still very overpriced.
Everything thing in Maldives is expensive, and expensive to get to the islands but when a btl of wine cost 5.99 and $100 in mle thats beyond crazy

We got the 2016 Peraj Ha'abib which was very nice. Was a very nice surprise after being worried I'd lose the bottle of grape juice I brought through customs.

The Waldorf is beyond amazing. Hopefully will get a trip report up after I leave.

I did confirm with them in advance so it wasn't really a surprise.
Was nice seeing you this morning.

Didn't even know it was an option to request. I bought a bottle of grape juice in Phuket, but the bottle was entirely in Hebrew and I was worried they would think it was wine and take it away. I did get flagged at customs but I told them there's a bottle of juice in there and they didn't even open the bag.

It's really incredible how accommodating they were with shabbos and kosher. Excellent experience, would definitely recommend.

Was awesome to meet you!
