The Conrad has had them also according to reports on FT. Seems to depend on your luck.

Ah, wondered what the "ftfy" was all about.

In any event, I think the cancer linkage was to people who live there. I'm no doctor, but I'd imagine a brief exposure to the bay would not materially, if at all, increase one's odds of contracting anything.

That said, I guess it's better to play it safe and wait for the results of the latest study currently underway.

Yeah, I came across that one in my searches as well.

That doesn't have the same health concerns?

Can anyone recommend a resort they've stayed at that may accommodate 2+4 kids (aged 1-8)?! Looking for a beach villa, 2 rooms.. good kids club, kid friendly pool..

In various reports I'm seeing the Halaveli is kid friendly, what are your thoughts AJK?

my biggest concern is food for a week... Any ideas? anyone have a decent sized fridge? kitchenette?

I don't want overwater, been there done that... in advance of being asked so why bother going there.. bc great empty beaches, lotsa sand for kids, kids club and pools were superb previously where I went, good mileage availability from where I want to go...

Also if anyone can recommend any ways to get good prices... Going in June (as did last time) which is low season, perhaps worth waiting till much closer to get deals?

Was originally planning on Bali with a villa, then leaned towards Thailand at resort, now leaning here... Thx

So many more kid-friendly places with great empty beaches.  Doing MLE and paying for expensive hotel transfers and staying non-overwater just makes my head hurt.

I'm listening... I absolutely loved Maldives, nothing can compare.. N for kids the sandy beaches, shallow water, nice kids club... LMKL is the only other place which comes to mind which I'm considering.. One way mileage for me to Thailand is 50k to male is 30k

I'm looking for boat transfer to save money there... Would gladly hear other options

Why not use AA to fly to Thailand? 30k in J each way.
The Maldives for a family seems like overkill.
