Always pains me greatly to book a 4 day trip with HH/MR points. I'll usually change things around to make it 3 or 5 :D

:)

Might just cancel the 4th night and go to bali a day earlier - got the 89/night at the conrad bali :)

I came across a discussion on FT about the STR giving free sea plane transfers for two for stays through December 20th

It's now been discontinued but someone was mentioning that the STR does that at least once a year.

Anyone ever came across this? Seem like incredible value

Seems like Maldives may be crapping most of the things they said before:

They may still require a covid test before coming but are not charging for visas or requiring 14 day stays.

The original publication was based on a draft the Maldives government sent to tourism operators and stakeholders for input, and is still busy refining it.

Right so it seems like most of the main issues arent going to happen. Will see when the final policy comes out.

There are another 10k FT members on the same boat as you...
But why not using a free night certificate? I would've use 5 of them... Keep the points for another time.
