Earning Points at the Resort - What Doesn't Qualify
Please note that any charges on third party services will be ineligible for points, e.g:
• Seaplane Transfer*
• Water Sports
• Dive Centre
• Spherique Boutique, Island Breeze or any other shops*
• Service Charge
• T-GST (Tourism Goods & Service Tax) and Green Tax (both government levied)

* The above mentioned outlets/services are third party and are not run by Conrad Maldives, therefore any purchases or expenses for items or services rendered will not be eligible for HHonors points.

Tax Information
• 10% Service Charge (levied by resort)
• 12% T-GST (Tourist Goods & Services Tax, levied by the Maldivian government, current as of Oct 1, 2014)
• Total tax is 23.2%, not 22% as one would think. Example; $100 + 10% = $110, then add 12% on to $110 for a total of $123.20
• A new Green Tax of US$6pp/pn (levied by the Maldivian government) has been introduced starting from 1 November 2015. Points/Redemption bookings are exempt from the tax for up to two guests per room
Note: The US$8pp/pn Bed Tax (previously levied by the Maldivian government) was abolished on Dec 1, 2014

Not too sure why many hotel chains (Ritz-Carlton comes to mind) seem to think that stuffed toys are only reserved for kids. We adults like to collect, too! Those Conrad stuffed toys are addictive to collect. I have to say that since discovering their existence I've ended up traveling to a few more places that I would've otherwise not contemplated.

Wanted to report back that they are renovating (refreshing?) the Superior Water Villas. We started in 338 (not renovated) but had to move, due to the ridiculously loud construction noise including jack hammering to rip up the floors next door in 337. They noted that the rebuild of 337 will take approx 5 days. We were moved to 342 which appears to have been finished. Differences we noticed from 338 include a new TV, new mood lighting added to the ceilings, new floors, and new wall boards. 337 should be done on Friday and 342 is definitely done (haven't asked but it is clear when comparing with 338); to note when requesting a SWV to try and get a recently refreshed one. Also, we received a 10% off coupon for Koko Grille, lobsters and champagne or beach BBQ as diamond members. Not sure if anyone has mentioned that yet.

For those considering either a RWV or a SWV, we prefer the SWV compared to our trip last year. While the RWV is larger and has a more extravagant bathroom, the layout of the SWV is much more efficient and centered around the phenomenal sunset view. Also, the snorkeling off the deck is great. We also prefer the smaller island and proximity to Vilu and Quiet Zone. When they were sorting out the construction issue, they offered to move us to a RWV but we declined to stay in a SWV.

One last difference we noticed is that Vilu has a completely new menu for breakfast and dinner; I had oysters rockefeller for breakfast this morning.

Love this place so much!!

Thanks to him/her for making this available, especially since Conrad's website doesn't list prices.
I'm confused-- are these the same prices for the excursions booked through Conrad? Or are these only if booked direct?

The Premium Water Villas dont seem to be available on my dates. The best alternative seems to be the DWV and I will take one of these.
Welcome. If you aren't strong swimmers and are concerned about the current, I advise to request to not be in the last couple of DWVs as the current starts getting strong in that area.

Erm, don't quite get you. Isn't booking through the Conrad booking direct?

Great news! Thanks for the info. Will add the info to the wiki. Would you be able to find out if the 10% off coupon is a permanent addition and if it's for Golds as well. Oh, and pics of Vilu's new menus if you have the chance. TIA! Sorry to hear about the noise and hope you enjoy the rest of the stay!

Sorry if I wasn't clear.

The prices listed in the photo -- https://www.scribd.com/document/3366...ursions-Prices

Are these the prices the resort charges? I interpreted the original post to mean that an anonymous member runs a third party business for these excursions.

But re-reading it, it just means the anonymous member just posted the photo with the prices.

Yes, they are what the resort is charging. Have they gone up again? Haven't had time to compare myself.

What's the best way to deal with this .... or am I over thinking it.

We are looking to stay for 6 nights in total.
I am Diamond, my wife is Gold.
We have one free weekend certificate each; thus two nights in a beach villa.
Now the other 4 nights, we will be paying cash and likely booking a SWV.

I know upgrades are not given at this property however I am hoping for lots of positive goodwill ..... and trying to arrange my bookings to maximise the 2 reward nights be upgraded?

I am thinking the first four nights cash, then my wife, then me again .... hopefully the resort is not at capacity and we, luckily, get to stay in our original SWV for the last two (reward) nights.

or should I go for my reward, my wife's reward, then four nights paid.

I expect to move during my stay in any instance so if neither of the above works, my expectation is set appropriately.

Having never been, take my opinion with a grain of salt, but it seems like even a beach villa is an amazing place to be. I would not worry if I had to be two nights in a beach villa and four nights in a SWV. Sounds like bliss to me. I have five nights booked and paid upgrades each night to a SWV, but if I was offered a sixth night free in a beach villa, you think I'd say no?
