What's the closest place to SEZ that has a Minyan on Shabbos?

Cat 6 S. Regis looks like a good use of points.

Staying here in January next month for my honeymoon. booked via SPG Platinum with cash and points, 6.7 cents per point.

Planning to go?
Researching warm winter destinations that don't have Zika. The HH has availability for when I could go, but I just found out I'm limited to Sun-Sun total travel time so it likely doesn't make sense to go so far.

I am planning on a trip to Seychelles on the 11th of December. Wondering if it's worth it as well to fly to Mauritius, particularly Rodrigues Island.

I flew Turkish to SEZ. The Istanbul to Seychelles leg was 8 hours, and the plane was for the most part empty. Immigration asked to see proof of accomodations and my return ticket, which I showed on my Smartphone. Just the 9 hour time difference from EST is a killer. Jetlagged all week. Suggest those visiting to bring snorkeling gear, and head straight to the island of La Digue. There is plenty of budget self catering accomodations
