Hilton’s flagship Conrad Maldives resort is once again wide open for redemptions. This time availability is even better, at just 120,000 points per night from now right into December.
Due to the ‘5-4-4’ deal available to anyone with any level of Hilton Honors status, you’d be looking at 480,000 points for a five night stay.
Remember that June-August is rainy season in The Maldives, although the storms usually come in bursts with sun before and afterwards. Earlier months should be better.
Here is availability for March as at midday Tuesday:
Availability is similar for virtually every month until November:
Even December has a shocking amount of availability:
Nights which do not show at 120,000 points only have premium rate availability which is poor value for points.
You can buy Hilton points here – there’s currently a 100% bonus running. 480,000 points would cost $2,400 – you’d need to split the total between three of you due to the 160,000 points annual cap and then move them together for free via Points Pooling – which is £400 per night assuming you qualify for ‘5-4-4’. Note that brand new Hilton Honors accounts cannot buy points – your account must be 90 days old, or 30 days old with a completed stay.
