ok, i am trying to work out a trip to mle.

my wife finally agreed to go this summer (thanks to mrs ajk's convincing that its the most gorgeous place in the world)


so here goes my itin so far...
i would like to leave from ny and spend shabb in sin and then fly sunday to mle and then fly back to ny on wed/thurs. aug 6-14th
there are a few issues. there is no normal availability to sin on any of those days after tisha bav. so instead i found flights to HKG, and i suppose ill stay there for shabb.

now there is a flight from HKG to MLE on sunday but it gets in at 10pm which means i lose a whole sunday flying. anyone have ideas?

secondly, on the return, there is no flights out until mid day to sin. though i found a flight that leaves on thurs and arrives in EWR at 1130am (its a 24hr flight thru ams, cdg)


i have at least 500k worth of UA/UR and 130k BA (if that helps) and 130k AA

1) go longer then 4 days to maldives, day of arrival and departure doesnt count, so you have only 3 full days

2) if you land after 4PM there is no seaplane transfer anymore to the resort, so you will have to sleep in MLE

there are no flights (with star alliance) out of sin that arrive early.. what are my other possibilities.

In addition, going for more than 4 days means being there for shabb.

I had a very nice relaxed shabbes there. Cant beat eating a shabbes meal with your wife in a OW villa

I think Air Asia also flies there. So does Malaysian via KUL (oneworld)

If its a once in a lifetime trip, dont screw it up, as you cant get free flights for a 4 hour flight

I'd be weary about going that time of year.

You have a good chance of getting no sun

I was there in June and had solid nice days
I was in HKT in August and had 10 out of 14 days nice weather

There is always a risk in the tropics

Dec is supposed to be high season with nice weather 99% here is what can happen as well

When I was there in August the weather was very nice, and it may have rained once for a few minutes. The only thing is that the water was choppy I don't know if that's seasonal.

So the Conrad is closed next summer for renovations, and that is when my speculative pre-deval booking was made for.
They sent me an email saying that I'm being rebooked into the 4 Seasons Kuda Huraa, or the Gili Langafooshi if I need over water accomodations.

I'd be curious to hearing your folks advise about the quality of the 3 properties, and what my plan of action should be going forward.

Looks like I'll be going in July, and we'll work out babysitting closer to the date.
