95k? That seems cheap.
North america to south america 1 is 30K in J, its a sweet spot. its not even increasing after the mAAsacre
South America 1 to Oceania is 65k in J.

Originally I was gonna go from La Paz which is in south america 2 (but switching to SA1) , and would only cost 50k, however it wasn't worth it

It's a place holder for the four nights until I have a chance to get in touch with a good travel agent for deals at other properties. Conrad has no availability on awards (at the moment) for my dates.
I also reserved:
1) an "Over Water Vila - Full Board" at http://www.gangehi.com/portfolio-normal-layout/overwater-villa/ for $906.32 USD total including tax +$425 (x2) sea plane
2) a "VIP Pool Villa" at http://www.shangri-la.com/male/villingiliresort/rooms-suites/villas/pool-villa/ through Amex FHR on a fourth night free basis that comes to $1829 for four nights. Will reach out to them to see what upgrades are available for FHR stays.
Will be calling every half hour day to switch it.
...and even more so once we pick up the kids and get up for a 6am flight.

Good luck.

The less exciting part is that it's costing you 3k extra Avios compared to 3 weeks ago.
