StR is terrible (for the $). Hard product is aging, staff is representative of a nice Marriott not a StR; food is adequate at best, gym is OK. RC is nice, with good dining options. I was pretty "meh"...

And, to be clear, I was just being...

Interesting. This place was always defended as some sort of vanity or aspirational project by Ellison and thus the $4k per night. No need to make money, no care if they are 10% occupancy. That...

As somebody wrote, Baa Atoll is very good. We have staid at Milaidhoo (excellent snorkelling) and Amilla Fushi (very good snorkelling). Milaidhoo had slightly stronger currents a couple of days, but...

I agree with pretty much everything you said. I don't really get why there is no discussion (or, based on your comment, actual push for) of how to implement test on arrival as an alternative to...

It wouldn't surprise me in the least to see the borders closed until roughly then (speaking as a Canadian). Not that I am happy about that. There is, seemingly, zero appetite amongst Canadians for...

One option in Jasper if you are looking for your own kitchen: Alpine Village Cabins. Not quite walking distance to Jasper townsite (it is about 4 km away) but a nice spot.
