Would not do the Male city tour if I went back today...
What about passing through the airport/walking around the hotel with a yarmulkah on?

I wouldn't worry about that.  The hotels have mostly foreign workers anyway and are on their own private islands far away from Male.

youd be surprised as to their connection to the beliefs. After i left i saw one of the workers instagram accounts and it was all pro-jihad and pro-Palestinian war against israel. (I went during the most recent war)

No, look, there is nothing to be nervous about. I spoke to my rav, and he said the same thing other ppl said, go as its your private vacation, dont go to revolt against their beliefs... youll be fine then. I wore a hat at all times, CBS i think wore a yarlmuka (he went the same time i did - during the war). The main chef knew i was jewish and he was fine with it. He actually tried every which way to make the meals as easy and enjoyable as possible under the kosher req.

Probably best seat to BOB is this way, with fully lie-flat and LAN has excellent service. Though not in the league of the MLE options.

Going there in January, taking the ultra-long route through SCL/IPC

+1 - the main island of Male is a boat ride away from airport, just dont go there.

correct, i wore my yarmulka always or a hat (for sun purposes) -

no one gave a dirty look or said anything, i even became with a Lebanese couple that was there and they were cursing out hezbolla

chefs were very accommodating. On shabbos they gave me tour of the kichens to see if anything was kosher, and they walked with me all over the island as i refused to get on the trolly

Of course the Lebanese would curse out Hezbullah, the problem is the Maldivians.... :P
