Why not? They bill to your room like every other charge. You just donít earn HHonors for that spend
In BOB they didnt take Hilton GC. Is that different in Maldives?

Anyone have experience smuggling wine into the maldives.

...and in other news, a man frequenting the online deals site, DansDeals.com, got arrested today for breaking one of the Maldives only three customs rules.

Family members are worried and do not know when or even if he will be afforded access to an attorney.  When asked, friends expressed both concern for his welfare and incredulousness. "Listen, I like wine as much as the next guy, but it simply boggles the mind why he would he try to smuggle contraband into a foreign country. I wish him the best and hope he doesn't spend the rest of his life in prison. I just hope it wasn't Manischewitz," said Baruch from Boropark. 

Yehudah from Monsey worried, "can you imagine the shame his family is going through right now? Forget the white table cloth on shabbas issue, can you just imagine what the shadchanim will think, 'so his father went to jail in a Muslim country, huh? I wonder what else he might have done while there...'"

No comment from the Maldivian government was forthcoming at press time.

And that's all for the top of the hour. Joanne, back to you.

I guess I got the answer. Is there a way they can order kosher wine? It's strange that alcohol is available on the island, but it's illegal to bring it in.

Ask your hotel about importing kosher food or wine.

I would ask the food/beverage manager at whatever hotel you're staying at...  they get frequent shipments from places like singapore... they could theoretically arrange it for you... but likely at a steep cost...

Delivered? To Conrad MLE?

lol... no.

You have to bring them. Though I suppose if you had the type unlimited funds required to have POM delivered to MLE, you can just bring your own chef.

Wow, but to me that seems more like an adventure than a relaxing vacation.

Adventure, yes, but infinitely relaxing too. You just roll out of bed and into the water.
