lol, true true (As long as it's getting me somewhere)

Knowing what I now know about MLE, I probably would have flown Y as well ex-ante, but now that I've done the trip in F, it ain't gonna happen.

I know they must import it so I'm guessing that this must be done in advance. how much in advance do we need to order?
and does anyone know if order all meals for my wife and I for the 5 days, Am i charged 50x all the meals I actually eat or 50x all the meals I told them I want (a month before when I ordered the kosher meals..)
Do they pay for the food you eat or for the food they buy?

+1

the hotel is doing a great service and going out of its way to help you/us. Please dont be cheap on them and come up with such stupid questions to them, as they will not do it anymore and it will be ruined for all.

To be clear, only the Hilton left.
The Conrad didn't leave.

Here is where I am at on my trip to MLE this November:

11/12 130pm LAX - 11/13 150pm TLV  (Business) ElAl
________
11/17 920pm TLV - IST 1140pm  TK789 (Business)  A320
11/18 110am IST  - MLE 1155am    TK730 (Business)  A330
_____
11/20 220pm MLE - SIN 1010pm   SQ461 (Business)  A330-300
11/21 1210am SIN  -  ICN 735am    SQ608 (Business)  A330-300
11/21 430pm ICN - LAX 1010pm    Oz202 (First) Asiana Air  747-400

From reading through the thread I have compiled a list of the hotels that are options:

Taj Exotica
W
PHM
Conrad
Sheraton
Halaveli
Constance
Centara


I havent researched pricing on all these hotels just yet but W is saying 140k/night for OWB or $1970/night. 

Can anyone provide any help booking for cheaper or some advice?

I guess I am best off bringing kosher food cold cuts and the likes to MLE?

Also, any advice on the flights I am taking?

How about experience with Kosher food on Asiana first back to LAX?  Which seats are best for H&W to go together?

Thanks

Read my TR. My wife and I ate very well in the Maldives. I brought chicken, steaks, rice, pasta, disposable bbq's for the meat and a burner with a pot and pan for the rest.

Can you link the TR?

  • 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.
