I was just looking into a potential stay at STR.
On many dates I found that the cost of cash upgrade on top basic award redemption is extremely low:
OW: $25
Beachfront: $45
Sunset OW: $50
STR OW: $75
2BR OW or 2BR Beachfront: $200

Thanks guys!

On a less than similar note, has anyone in the North Jersey or Rockland County area had luck obtaining a PCR test for travel to the Maldives? I've been looking into locations but no one will guarantee results within 96 hours metting all of the country requirements.
Is this still required to enter mle?

I heard something about Maldives restricting food on arrival due to Covid. Did anyone hear of such a thing? Wasn't able to find anything about it online.
