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.
Interesting... how many times have you been there ;)
If you have any questions please search and then ask. PM me for detailed help.

you say it with such conviction!

anyways, from the hotel email "The luggage allowance is 25 kg per person plus 5 kg of hand luggage and the maximum weight is 32 kg per piece of luggage. Any excess goods will need to be removed and placed in another baggage. Any excess baggage is chargeable and will have to be paid directly to Trans Maldivian at US$ 5.00 plus 12% TGST per 1 kg per way."

Per the trans maldivian airways website
The standard permissible weight is 25 kg, which includes 20 kg of checked-in luggage and 5 kg of hand luggage per person. The weight for any bag should not exceed 32 kg. The per kg charge for baggage above the permissible limit is USD 4.00/- plus applicable taxes.

All Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite and Diet Sprites are kosher world wide, according to sources in the OU. Acc to R'Landau from Bnai Brak, Coke and Diet Coke are good around the world.  Once you get into specific flavors, those are country/area specific.

If I arrive to MLE 8:45 PM, can I still catch a seaplane to the resort?

Likely not, but some resorts do not require sea plane.

I thought Coke from South America isn't kosher and in fact, the only place in the USA where they serve non kosher coke is in the coke factory in Atlanta which serves SA coke
