If I arrive to MLE 8:45 PM, can I still catch a seaplane to the resort?
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

Probably not, they operate only from sunrise to sunset. On their website they write to arrive in MLE no later than 3:30 if you want to fly same day.

Do you research that everywhere you go? I thought it was just assumed that Coke is OK everywhere

I would recommend bringing some small bottles of your own anyway, unless you enjoy paying $6.50 for a 300ml bottle. :o

Many makolets are now selling little 3-packs of 250ml coke bottles for roughly 3 NIS per bottle.

-1, -1

Trans Maldivian Airways charges $4 per kilo overweight, and they don't give a starch how many separate bags you have, as long as the total works out to 25 kg per person (20 kg + 5 kg "hand baggage"). Anything more than that, and they'll charge you.

Unless they have different prices for different resorts, which would be rather strange. Or if they don't use TMA, which seems unlikely.
