You will kick yourself a lot more for going to the Maldives and staying at the Sheraton or not going at all.
I can emphasize with you since I hate to waste money and pay out of pocket but this is the one time you should close your eyes, bite the bullet, pay and then forget about it completely, open your eyes and revel in your vacation on an earth-side paradise.

By this point, the hotel is so familiar with kosher meals that any Butler you get is going to be just fine.

Signing up for two aspire cards should be enough for 5 nights in a OWB in Conrad MLE, correct? $900 for the two cards, but $250 off of the seajet fee, correct?
Will come with diamond status, free breakfast.

Any reason not to do this and instead keep looking for a good deal on a non-points resort?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

The Aspire SUB is 150k, x2 = 300k. The 5th night is free, but 4 nights x 95k = 380k > 300k, no?

As noted, 5 nights = 380k, you'd be short.

Second, all but certain credit cannot used for seaplane.
