If you're really the Chief Rabbi of New York I feel like that's a question you shouldn't be asking...

dont understand. did he see other people? were they eating? playing games? or what?

Clearly he saw them in a state he most likely wouldn't want to be seen in, by others, himself.

Lucky's post had screenshots of rates in the $300s (for non OWB, $460 for OWB)
do you know if i can buy the nights with cash and upgrade with points to an owb?
the dates i want are pretty cheap, not sure if its worth using 380K hilton instead of $3300 for the 5 nights...

That's a great value for hilton points, you're definitely better off using the points.

You should cancel your stay at the SR and move over to the Conrad

Doubt the SRMLE is worth multiple times the Conrad.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Just back to the privacy discussion and the Conrad to the SR...you totally canít compare! The Conrad has 2 islands and the house reef is in the OTHER island far away from the OWV area, the water in front of those villas has a strong current (with multiple signs warning against swimming there) and is shallow for a quite a ways out so even if someone did try snorkeling it would have to be way out.

Also, quite frankly they cater to Chinese who mostly donít swim. Even when I snorkeled on the House reef (on the other island) there was never anyone else there but the lifeguard.  As far as privacy, obviously there could be a drone or someone snorkeling but itís a low likelihood and I donít cover my hair at home because Iím worried someone will fly a drone up to my window!  I did keep a hat and robe next to me on the deck just ďin caseĒ because if you are a frum woman it does feel strange to have the breeze in your hair and sunbathe so that was my ďsecurity blanket!Ē  :P Itís as much privacy as you can promise your wife without going to a private island. It felt extremely private, so much so that I donít want to go to Bora Bora or even the SR, chance getting less privacy and losing one of the huge joys of the trip...
