sure, my wife and I have a half-hour only phone rule on vacation, so I'll try to send a bunch later.

In summary with the villa, my wife and I aren't crazy on the plunge pool, and this villas privacy (and the one next to it) are uniquely private on the island

Good rule! And we had a plunge pool un greece didn't really use, is it really necessary if u have the Indian ocean as a pool?!

Your plunge pool seems very tiny compared to the traditional OWBs's (numbered on the map above) plunge pool.
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.

Well, there goes my choice on the matter lol. There was an issue with the electric in my villa going haywire, so I'm being moved lol, being put in an over water sunset Villa, they would have put me in a suite but there was only one available and a paying customer (GM explained he paid cash not upgraded to it) so he can't bump him, and the only other option is garden or Astor I jokingly told him Astor ;D ;D ;D
BH it's on of the more private ones, only a few away from the Astor so all should be good iy"h and @Dan now I can see how that it the plunge pool actually is lol

I feel like Im hijacking @yehuda25s live TR, but hopefully this question is not too far off topic.

Planning a 5-night Maldives stay in January 2020 for our big wedding anniversary.  Must be overwater.  Would love to stay at SR but seems difficult if not impossible to find for points (60k?). However, it seems easy to get Water Villa at Conrad Rangali for 95k.

There are several very favorable TRs on the Conrad, but my sense is that SR is the gold standard.   Are they really worlds apart, or are the experiences and properties comparable?

Dont know if this helps but From the research I've done is that the SR has nicer accommodations as its much newer but the conrad has nicer snorkeling and scuba (better location) but I've never been to either
