If you stay for 3 nights, sure.
Is it worth it to travel 24 hrs each way for 3 nights? I wouldn't. There are other places closer on the map. Do this when you can spend time there and really enjoy it. Don't just "do it" to check it off the list. It isn't daf yomi, it's bora bora.

For everyone but you ;)
It's officially at time of check-in, but people have had some success getting it a few days before. This was definitely true in the first few months of the property being open

With some time suddenly opening up for me, it got me thinking of a possible BOB trip for like 5 nights for the dates between March 8-19... Was hoping to do the Conrad, as I just rebuilt my Hilton Stash specifically for a BOB trip, but it seems that there is no 80k a night availability.

 Is there a chance of it opening up again? Or is there anywhere else I can/should look for availability this close to the trip date?

Not open to Conrad MLE?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

This is true. Besides the point that I want to try BOB, now that I have already done SR MLE, it's way more convenient flying from LAX then going back to MLE again.

Risking it in the rainy season... If you don't get the weather you want in BOB, you might come to think MLE is better

According to google, it seemed as if March is a great time to go...?

May-Sep ideal. March is risky.
