2) if you land after 4PM there is no seaplane transfer anymore to the resort, so you will have to sleep in MLE
The PH confirmed twice that they have a flight we could take at 1130 pm (landing after 9pm) this is not the itinerary we are taking in the end but just saying.

4S
My SO is leaning towards that, but Gili is a 210m 2 story OWV, while the 4S is a 50m beach villa.
I wouldn't pay to upgrade at the 4S, so Gili is my one chance at being in an OWV.

I'm leaning towards Gili, and as the man in the house, I can decide (if she allows me to that is).

Which of the 2 options would you recommend?
I was referring to the Maldives in general. Are you asking which hotel I would choose? I stayed at the W=A I'm not really very familiar with any other hotels, but definitely go for a OWB.

no problem at all - thought it was good idea just asking if anyone has done it

any good hotel deals in maldives or you just have to suck it up and pay ?

also what do people do when your flight going home is at 1130pm and the seaplane ends at 4pm ?

You can look into using miles or free night certs at the Hilton or Hyatt.
Otherwise, keep an eye out for sales.

Not all hotels require a seaplane. The 2 options I'm choosing between now are both a 20-30 minute speedboat ride away.

I'd assume you can wait in the lounge during your time there, or walk around the city.
