Which would you choose: SR Beach Villa or Conrad OWV (both point base booking)?

And for somebody who missed the SR OWV deal, is it worth the significant upcharge to get OWV there over the Conrad OWV, assuming I have a comparable amount of Marriott and Hilton points?
Or you could buy mine as I have multiple,,,

What dates do you have, and how much are you asking?

And if anybody has answers to my original questions, that would be greatly appreciated as well.

been quite here...

looking for some help,
Im trying to find flights from NYC-MLE for the day that i want there is only mixed cabin with either LH,LX, in J and TK in econ showing on united ( there is one thru air India but only 1 seat avail) there is plenty availability a day earlier problem is i arrive to MLE a day earlier too and don't really feel like seating in the St. Regis Lounge for 24h after 27h of flying  ;) (anyone ever spend a day in the city?)
another option in CX F for 125k, 2 problems with that is 1, its only on wait list (what are my chances of them opening 2 seats,and is it worth transferring 250k points for a "maybe") 2, CX arrives to MLE at 10pm so same issue as flying a day earlier,

TIA

Not really for this thread, but how about searching from BOS, ATL, YYZ, IAD, etc and then piecing together a positioning flight?

Guessing this has to do with Sri Lanka attacks.

I was always wondering, how can an island such as St Regis defend themselves against an attack of multiple persons?

Imagine something of this scale on an island.
