If I choose the Halaveli, I can stay for 6 nights for essentially the same price as 5.

So, that's what we're going to do.

Waldorf is part of the hilton chain and I heard from someone else that he had kosher food as a option at the hilton. my resort got a weekly shipping from australia anyway, so it was easy to arrange...They ship via air in a frozen container. If I had to do my own shipping it would have been much to expensive and clearing customs would have been very hard. Like this my food was just part of the regular delivery. speak to the food and beverage manager of your resort.
the catering that i ordered the food from was kleins in mebourne http://kleinsgourmetfoods.com.au/
The shipping agent of the hotel was also very nice and offered to personally pick up groceries for me from the kosher store, she went out of her way for me, so it really depends who your hotel deals with
How much in advance did you order the Kosher food?

+1. I did it and "survived".

Other idea is to ask them if they have a new grill for you that you can use.

Obviously they can take away the meat if they find it at customs

Our hotel warned us that it could happen, though it was not listed on the customs form

Have you ever read/heard of it actually happening though?
Since they x-ray everything you'd think we'd hear of meat confiscations if they were happening.

IIRC, pork is the issue. So perhaps have it labeled.

They told me that I should make sure that everything is marked clearly because they tend to think that things like cold cuts can be pork.

But I have not heard of anyone getting meat confiscated. Only grape juice :)
