so i was thinking about that. like i asked is it worth it to go weds (arrive at 11 am) to sunday (leave 1050 pm) ?
That's my schedule. Landing Wednesday, leaving Sunday night, both on TK.
Since you likely won't pay $$$ for diving lessons, 4 days of lounging should be more than enough, and then schedule another destination in that area of the world to make all the flying worth it.

Also, who says you'll ever have the cash for the OWB, along with the time to go? I can only afford the OWB b/c it's free due to the Conrad closing. But I never planned on paying to upgrade to one.

If you dont stay in a OWB its a waste of time, go another time... Maldives =OWB
Alot of the costs are transportation, once u paid all this try to be there as long as you can

You should be able to sell your UR points and use that towards a hotel

Anyone know if there are independent speedboat services to take me from the airport to hotels that don't require a seaplane?
$220 pp for a 20 minute ride is a wee bit too high.

It includes breakfast, so we'll have fruit, drinks, etc.
We'll bring bread, tuna, pb&j, etc.
We've made it work in the past, and it's a short trip, so I'm not concerned.

4 nights. 2 overnight flights to/from IST, so 6 nights total outside of house.
For shabbos, we'll also bring food, and it's a large villa so it should be relaxful.
Plus, if I use a shinui, I could probably go kayaking and snorkeling. E/t is okay with a shinui.

I think independent coats would charge just as much... I paid $500 for seaplane so not so bad what yore paying

Instead of schlepping food I'd just eat at the hotel with a shinui.
