Are we positive this was even a mistake?

I picked a random day in July (7/9) and looked back 10 years at the historical weather in Male.
But is this data meaningful for this particular resort island?

says who?
The amount of revenue loss they’ll get compared to their size and negative publicity of honored. I booked in case but I’d be surprised if this were honored

Only somewhat. There’s nothing better though since they don’t report weather.

I have booked 6 nights at the Conrad in a standard OWV but am considering doing this (Angsana Velavaru) instead and staying in the In-Ocean Sanctuary Pool Villa. I will only be traveling with my wife, so while the extra space of the sanctuary pool villa would be nice, it isn't completely necessary. While Hilton status helps at the Conrad, Accor status does nothing at this hotel. Has anyone here stayed at this hotel?

what do you need status for if you're getting their best room and free breakfast?

Afternoon tea/happy hour mostly  8). There are also small diamond benefits at the Conrad that may/may not still exist, like an evening cruise, daily fruit plate to snack on, lounge access at the MLE airport, etc.

My reservation for the Conrad is on November 4th. 20 days out. They need 21 days to cancel. Now I'm stuck with the Conrad OWB. I guess I will not be enjoying this price mistake.
Just FYI if it helps anyone. We are flying from HKG after the Canton Fair on Cathay Pacific with BA miles in Business, and from Male via Doha to JFK on Qatar booked with AA miles in business.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
