If you're looking for a cultural experience - see the sights, learn some history, see how the people live, learn about Maldivians as a people and culture - forget it.

Diving (and just about everything else) is brutally expensive. The diving's great, but it's great in the Red Sea and Malaysia and Thailand too, at prolly 1/3 the price.

I don't mean to slag on the Maldives, and if that's your thing then by all means I hope everyone has a great time. This is just my opinion, which is of course worth exactly what you paid! A Hui Ho....

I sent an email to the property owner and project manager on Sep 1 and have not received a reply back. I take that as a bad sign that the hotel is not on course to open as planned in 2011.

We went to my wife's company picnic yesterday at Hershey Park. We thought about spending the night, but did not.

She remarked that the Spring Hill Suites there was a Cat 5 just like the JW Marriott in Phuket Thailand!

+2!

No cellphones, no blackberries, iPhones etc. Heck, even unplug the TV! Sounds like heaven.

Yes--I know it's a placeholder. But they could at least try to create a resort ambiance to get prospect in the mood....

Probably the same dope which inspired them to assign it to Cat. 5! If so, gee, I hope they don't come down from that high!
