Use the box as a suitcase.
Ask for an extra fridge.
And when they see a toaster oven coming into the resort? I am still somewhat debating if the St Regis makes more sense.

I brought a sandwhich maker and foil. It's amazing what you can accomplish with those two.

Honestly not sure. Just seems like the WA is nickel and diming. Also $600++ for a 45 minute yacht transfer seems insane. At least with a seaplane its kind of an adventure.

So get a different box or cover the box.

St regis is not free neither, just $15 cheaper.
Ask ppl here that had to pay for overweight on the seaplane, helps you begin the trip in a good mood...

There's always the option of paying for a non-points resort- they won't nickel and dime you but it will cost you 2k give or take a night...

We did the Constance Halaveli- we didn't know how forthcoming they'd be so only opted to include breakfast. They got us new pots, dishes, cutlery etc, let us light the flame, check the fish, (they have a dedicated oven for bread so that was a non-issue) unlimited supply of veggies, salads, fruit platters and fruit drinks, and gave us a dedicated oven in the kitchen for Shabbos, plus warmed up all our food for 'free'. They also assigned us a specific waiter and chef who were briefed on our situation beforehand.

St Regis, gave new pots,pans, veggies and fruit... with elite status.
