PSA:

The JW Marriott and St. Regis both told me that they both have kosher food for sale and provided me with prices.

St Regis: $45 for soup. $95 for Main courses

JW Marriott charges from $44 for chicken breast and chicken legs. $75 for Beef. They also mentioned that there is a charge for heating up meals depending on the time of day and venue (starting at $50 for breakfast). I believe that would be in addition to the cost of the dish.


Nah, that's for heating up your own meals.

But those prices are insane.

See my post a few pages back that has an attachment of STR menu so their prices were already known. They charge $35 per meal to heat up (as noted in my post as well) which now sounds cheap against the $50 and up the JW would charge.

STR now offering kosher dinners. Didn't try any as they didn't sound appealing, we brought our own. Was told that there will be $35 charge which still comes out cheaper than their meals but is obnoxious IMO.

Oh no

It's not the first attack.
They claimed credit for a stabbing recently.

In reality, security in Maldives  is a bigger issue then people would like to recognize.

Thanks to the amazing AC promo and wide open SQ availability I'd like to check out the Maldives some time in the foreseeable future.

I'm having a difficult time finding availability from SIN - MLE though. Seems it's operated by Silkair, does Aeroplan online show availability for this or will I need to call?

You can book silk air only with SQ. There's another flight SQ metal at night. Only the SQ one can be booked with *A partners.

did you post a TR? I would be interested in seeing it. If not can you answer a few questions like what you did for food and what they charged to heat it up?
