Would the WA allow me to charge a bunch of cards $250 and change the dates of stay if needed, or the charge has to be for a specific date?
I think @aisrael had that

What is the best way to handle kosher food in Maldives?

Is there a luggage limit on the seaplane or only a weight limit?

Has anyone been to the new Le Meridien Maldives Resort & Spa?

Bring frozen food and a burner/toaster oven, and have the hotel store the food in their freezer

There were reports of him getting new utensils, allowing guests to come into the kitchen to turn on the fire, and watch that everything is up to your standards. Kosher fish, ingredients, etc.

I had a great experience there 5 years ago. The omlet station was in the dining area and they used new pans and utensils plus had leftover shoprite ou cooking spray that someone left right before we came. We only ate eggs and vegetables.

Any advice is appreciated! Is it worth spending the extra points to stay at the Ritz Carlton vs the new Le Meridien? (Standard room- Overwater villa with a pool vs the sunrise overwater villa?) Thx!
