Only IHG does. I think he was saying that you technically could use points to book into those. (Will cost more than the standard room's points rate.)

Data point: The Le Tipaniť Restaurant in the LM were very accommodating, they happily heated my KSML, let us eat in the restaurant, brought us plastic, froze and refrigerated our food and packed us unpeeled fruits and vegetables (they did charge us for it though)

They gave us a box of Kelloggs frosted flakes for free. (Don't expect that though)

Lots of the French products there should be kosher. Google the names of the product together with "cacher" and you'll find listings online

Only with reservation at the other resorts restaurants.

ST. Regis is free with restaurant reservations

Transfer to other resorts have a small (relatively) Boat transfer fee.

Walking to other resorts are not possible, for example,  between the LM and ST. Regis there is water, separate islands.

Between the LM and Intercontinental  Thalasso there are dogs guarding private property, those dogs really do bite.

You need to just dump the letter/digit combo after the "=" sign into the Youtube link. See attached.
