Granted, during that time we got SCUBA certified and went on 5 or 6 dives, seeing more underwater life in 10 mins than most people see in a decade.
+1 That's an amazing idea!
I am planning my trip to the maldives for my wife and I for May 8 to May 14. I am leaving from TLV and am waiting for availability at 70k RT per person in Business through IST (it's only 10 hours total) on Turkish Airlines.
The Hyatt has availability in Park Villas at 22k/night but I have not asked yet if they have availability for upgrade with $... (They go for ~$1,400/night on Hyatt's website)
The Constance Halaveli is $990/night for the OWB on their website.

I am wondering if I should just save my points and $350/night upgrade fee and just look for another hotel and just pay for it...  I also would love to have that pool in the OWB...
Any advice you guys can give me about my choice of flights/hotels would be much appreciated (btw, I have plenty of UR and MR points)

No F on turkish, only C

Halaveli is always cheaper through agent or agoda.com, the homepage prices are a rip off. You can also email them and ask for a quote

Conrad. It is supposed to be a restaurant that they transform into a private guestroom upon request

10-15K a night. Ouch. Never mind. Truth is I'd rather a OWB. But that room is a neat concept nonetheless.

As far as I know, no such room actually exists. That looks like a photoshop of the restaurant there, though.

ETA: As it turns out, I'm only partially right. That room apparently exists either right OFF the restaurant, or the restaurant is turned into that in the night. Wow.

Right around the time I went last year...

I'd search agoda.com for your dates at the Halaveli, you can likely do much better.

That's right. But I'd rather do that than go through SIN and add another 10 hours to my flight...

Do you think I am too close to their winter?

I searched agoda and found the Halaveli for $750/night (OWB with private pool)... Do you think that's my best bet? Any other agent/hotel I should look into?

Thanks! However even with the 20% off, it is still more expensive at the Halaveli or Conrad...
