As I posted elsewhere, there is a new mileage flight option to MLE. Meridiana from Italy, using Avios.

Just read the past 8 pages. Anyone have any ideas for >500 a nt OWB. Halelavi is 870 a nt and Conrad is 615.

@chuchun is there a number to your mle hookup?

Thanks. Will email him later today. I've been seeing a lot on hotel.com and TA that a lot of these hotels overbook. Should I be worried for something like that or its mainly in high season that happens.

How many guys on here are planning to be in the Maldives for this summer 2014 ?

I am horrible when it comes to planning such trips and would like to go for my honeymoon in July from TLV.

Are there any companies who sell packages so that they will organize flights and hotels...

What do people do about kosher food there ?

From TLV you can fly to MLE via TK using UA miles (40k r/t) or via Amman using AA Miles (35k r/t). With regards to hotels, probably better off using points as well. You can probably get a packaged deal but to use miles and points will in the end, be A LOT Cheaper. Especially for the Maldives

For kosher food you would most likely need to bring your own food.

@chuck
I disagree. Maldives is one of the only places, we're points should not be used. You could stay at the hyatt, but then you don't get a overwater villa. Even dan, that doesn't like to pay for hotels used cash for the maldives

The maldives is a expensive place, only do it if you have the money for it. If not pick a place within your budget. Maldives is a top luxury country, unless you want to stay at some cheap island, but then you might as well go to eilat

Some resorts will help you arrange kosher food, but once again it will not be cheap and takes a lot of work.

Don't worry, I agree w/ you regarding OWV, especially if you're ex-TLV.
Max, pay the upgrade for 2 nights to be in an OWV, and spend the other nights on the beach villas.

If you have HHonors points and don't mind paying the upgrade, the Conrad is an excellent choice.
