Made it!
Since it's winter weather, the boat ride over caused one of the ladies to throw up since it was quite turbulent.
But it's a wonderful place to visit, and hopefully the weather will allow for water sports tomorrow.
Nu? TR?

flying emirates business 230,000 amex and $1400 surcharges - i know crazy but I've been wanting to fly this airline for so long - I also know you can use alaska miles but they only have with more stopovers and didn't want to spend more time traveling than i had to they also have flight that gets into dubai 7pm and leaves 3am for maldvies which gets in at 9 - have all day rather to get in at night and have to spend night before going to conrad

opened up city hilton got 2 free nights and then transferred rest of amex to cover 3 nights - staying 5 nights upgrading for 3 nights

flying home cathay pacific through china - american miles 60,000 a person i think

what do you think ?

Is the Hyatt the best value in Maldives? $150 + 12,500 points...

$395

have you gone there before ?

anyone flown emirates before ?

hyatt good deal too - i just did the hilton because they have the only lounge that is open late for midnight departures - we have a 1130pm flight back from mld and the last seaplane that leaves conrad is around 430 so was not sure what to do but the conrad has a crazy nice lounge that you can use

I was supposed to be there last week, but they closed for the summer and put us up elsewhere.  :)

The lounge isn't a good reason to switch. If you're flying Biz on Cathay, you'll have use of the regular lounge which is relatively spacious, even if the food options are lacking.

The Conrad looks gorgeous. I always wanted to check out their underwater restaurant. It looks very cool in the pics.
