"Below are the price we shall offer you for kosher meals.

 

Soups USD 20

Main Course  USD 80

Desserts USD 25

 

subject to 10% service charge and 8% GST.

 "

was there a price change???

I saw that it was posted that PH Maldives is $50 a meal, it seems that they are nickeling and diming you here when they charge you for each individual course and went up quite a bit since May 1st!

That is a drastic rise in price. But I imagine they were losing money on people not eating all the meals they ordered them and raised the prices
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Do they charge to store/heat up if you bring your own?

Why not contact the supplier directly and get them to ship it?

Good luck getting something shipped from AUS to a MLE resort without doing it through the resort...

Thank you MEN.
would anyone know the following:
if I would like to take a george foreman to make a few dinners there will I need a special GF for it (220v) or I can take an American 110v  :-\ there and it will work?

Men did you get kosher food on your recent visit, for they uped the prices drastically to $80 main dish $25, $20 side dishes thats $200 a meal! ::)  any comments on that??

Last Q: I am flying from NYC to SIN staying there for 24 hours then continuing the journey to MEL, would you suggest that I can take frozen Vpacked meat in the freezer packs (Polar Bear Coolers 24 Pack Soft Cooler) and put under the plane then letting it sit in SIN for 24 Hours, and putting it again under the plain for another flight, in total it will be out for a whopping 47 hours  :o (in polar things)
maybe I can put dry ice in there? please all comments are appreciated!  ;D

Awesome. Though it'd cost 180k AA RT in F and I'm not even sure off the top of my head if AA will route you to Middle East via Asia on one award. Even if they would, I'd much prefer EY.

I don't think it's allowed.
