    Looks like I can book a beach villa for 120,000 HH points per night, which would be a good aspirational use of points given the cash price is over $1,100 on the dates I was looking at.

    Does anyone know whether a points stay would include any meals? Also any tips on the hotel or other Hiltons in the Maldives appreciated.

    Edit – I have just read Cat’s excellent review! Thanks – that’s really comprehensive!

    Do you have hilton status?
    If Gold or Diamond you get breakfast and an hours worth of free drinks plus a small plate of canopies.
    Otherwise no you pay for everything.

    Add in the seaplane transfer and its very expensive. They will run you card for $5000 holding deposit before you even get there!!!!

    In saying that we had a blast this year.

    Thanks! I’m Gold so that will take some of the edge off, but sounds like one to plan properly!

    There are extensive threads and FAQs on the various Hilton Maldives options on FlyerTalk. There was a long review of the Conrad on this site as well a few years back.

    The Conrad is a lovely hotel. It’s a good value points stay, especially if you get 5 for 4 but f&b soon adds up and a cheap stay it is not.

    A lovely hotel, we didn’t splash out, and spend £5k on food and drink in our 10 days there.

    +1 it is a great hotel and if you have status they treat you well. We tended to have a decent breakfast, share something at lunchtime as we are not big eaters in the sun. Have a G&T or two with some canapes in the late afternoon and a normal dinner and an occasional nightcap – but still we spent about $8k. We had a few extravagances like the underwater restaurant (we thought it was worth it) and some of the themed buffet nights on the beach (we did not think they were as good) I also had a few dive and snorkel trips, so you might save that cost.

    There are not many great AI hotels in the Maldives any more for £500 per night. I got a ‘good’ deal on Dusit Thani that was ‘only’ £900 per night including seaplane. From around a year of searching and waiting for good prices, I think the Maldives is getting too pricey.

    We paid around £800 pp for 2 weeks AI on Kuredo Island in the 90s, (Teletext special!), direct flight from MAN with Airtours, the Golden Age of travel 😂

    Luxury Escapes has sone deals. £3059 for 5 nights 2 pax in BV at Le Meridien in December (AI + seaplane) , then again in May-December. £500-600 extra for Jan-Mar and upgrade to sunrise overwater an extra £500 or so.
