In DXB, definitely can't pass up the Burj Al Arab ;)

I agree, but if you see the prices u might reconsider ;-) I would pay 500 for a night, but more then 1000 is to much
Might try the Atlantis resort, if not a spg or hyatt, I would get a upgrade to a nice suite

In the maldives I got this hotel for 400 a night http://www.halaveli.com/index.php?sel_lang=         
or i can get   http://www1.hilton.com/en_US/hi/hotel/MLEIRHI-Hilton-Maldives-Iru-Fushi-Resort-Spa/index.do
for 187 a beach villa and 340 a jacuzzi villa over water. The other one is nicer and has a own pool, but its 400 every night. The hilton only has a jacuzzi on the water villa, but there I can split my stay 3 days beach 3 da over water ad save some money. Still looking for a good deal

Go for on overwater while in MLE the whole time.
I mean how many places in the world can you get that?

The Hyatts in DXB look great.  But doubting that they get you a kosher breakfast :D

There is a new prop. from hilton, called the beach house by AW. Quite expensive, I emailed them for a offer. I could get the water villa for 480 online, lets see what they come up with.

I stayed at the Park Hyatt when I was in Dubai. Very nice hotel and wonderful service. I checked out the Burj, went to their sky bar for drinks. Waste of time and waste of money. Don't get me wrong, its gorgeous, buy way way overrated.

How much did you pay for the park hyatt? The rates are quite high at the moment. I have 4 upgrade vouchers left, so I should get a suite. I am also a spg plat, so I might stay at a starwood hotel. Did you bring in kosher food to dubai? Did you have israelie stamps in your passport?

Makes sense to me that Africa isn't a valid transit regios for that itin.  If the computer won't price it very few agents will be willing to manually price it.
Got a CO ESD agent to do a manual sell for a concierge client of mine :D
