Hi there - welcome to the Cathay Pacific forum. As your question is about redeeming BA Avios points, I'm moving this to the BA forum.

The number of Avios required will vary not only by class of service, but also whether you fly on CX's nonstop flight, or whether you connect somewhere. (Several BA partners fly to MLE.)

The one-way nonstop will cost 12,500, 25,000, and 37,500 Avios, for Y, J, and F, respectively.

Thank you! I would be looking at the nonstop on Cathay. What is the best way to check availability for my specific flights?

Search for award availability on BA.com for that route.

I just tried to look for availability on CX for HKG to MLE in 2017, and it looks like roundtrip in J is now 75k. Is this right? When it did go from 50k to 75k?

From when BAEC last increased the rates in 2015. You can see the chart here:
