Good question, and I asked the hotel the same thing since I had a reservation coming up in a few months. The answer is no, because the seaplane is through a third party. They do accept gift cards for the room and incidentals, though, since those are denominated in USD. I seem to recall reports on here of people having trouble with gift cards when other currencies are involved.

W Maldives bills you in USD so the Maldives is actually a great place to use your gift card.

Would love to hear any updates as well. I'm planning to arrive at the end of the month. Not many new photos on the resorts' Instagram account and only a few people have tagged the resort in their own photos.

There's three reviews on TA as of now with claims of Oct 2020 stays. They don't address much though.

Looking to book at the W or St.Regis, Westin with Points+Cash
.It says the standard "cancel whitin 30 days no charge". But am wondering if that includes the $ that I would pay in addition to the points. Looked everywhere online and at Marriott's terms and conditions and they don't mention it.
If you have any prior experience with cancelling a points+cash just let me know if they give you back both parts
Thanks
