I'm wondering if you tried booking as 5, 6, or 7 consecutive nights because I recently saw 5 consecutive days on other dates, but when I tried booking as a 5 day stay to get the free night the points for all nights jumped to 799k. The problem turned out to be that some nights were for a king room and other nights were for 2 queen.

So you could book individually each night at 120k and not get the 5th night free (and then deal with the hotel not to have to switch between the 2 room types because it's silly) but if you wanted 5 days in the same room type you had to agree to cough up that ridiculous amount of points which obviously sane people will not do.

I was just about to post this morning and then got busy with something else.  :)

Someone posted on FT this morning that he is currently at WA and the resort is at close to 100% capacity. So it's a bit odd that there is so much basic redemption available

Yes I found it odd as well. Saw all these redemption for 120k and then read on FT that the resort is nearly full with only 10% of rooms set aside for quarantine. Perhaps they're expecting a lot of cancelations due to increased travel restrictions and testing requirements?

This is Jan 2021.

They probably have a small number of rooms at the cheapest level and they havenít yet been reserved.
