They charge it on their own metal (I paid about $175 each for TLV-ICN-MNL in F). Not sure about partners

Apparently its not too easy to book KE partner awards, or at least this one.

For some reason, when the KE reps search for availability, even if its there (can be seen on AF.com) it comes back with no availability.
So still looking for someone that booked this for more info...

Was the water rough or calm? I recently traveled to the Maldives and the only thing that disappointed me was the rough water.

I'd imagine in both places that it depends on the time of year.
When did you go to MLE?

Wow, awesome!

How much did you pay for tickets and the hotel?
