Isn't the whole point of going here to be able to stay in an OWB? Now if you meant to go to IC Moorea and pay for the upgrade or really to any other of the other hotels and pay for an upgrade, that's a different story. But not "free." :P

The "other" IHG being talked about is also in BOB, the IHG LM, not the one in Moorea.

Either way, one can use SPG C+P to get into an OWB (which is what I was *going to do* before snagging IHG Thalasso).

Yep. Not always too easy to plan a year out, unfortunately. Seems like FTers are going here literally every week, while barely any DDFers have made it. I wonder why that is.

I booked mine almost a year out.

I know at least 2 DDF'ers who have gone, and at least 2 more who are confirmed.

Meant Moana, not Moorea, my mistake.
You've gotten Thalasso since you posted about your choices last week?

Right:

Just as I'm sitting down to book the SR, IHG Thalasso opens for 3 nights.

So I'm going to do 1 night at IHG Le Moana then take the free boat shuttle to their sister property, IHG Thalasso for 3 nights.

Would have loved to do 2 SR + 2 IHG Thalasso, but the only room the SR has available for the first night of our stay is... $10K.

Just FYI:

Spoke to two supervisors, AF apparently does not offer KSML on LAX-PPT.

Either way, one can use SPG C+P to get into an OWB (which is what I was *going to do* before snagging IHG Thalasso).
How would the SPG C+P run ?

Better bet, I think, is still the LM for 16K+$270 into an OWB.

Noticed it earlier today. I believe this is the 2nd time you've posted screenshots like that. You love it lol
There were sporadic days when I checked a few days ago. Very lucky that some of your days opened up for you.
