  1. Interesting. Hilton used to have 3 properties in the Maldives. I stayed at the Iru Fushi on points in 2011…but that place has changed hands twice since then.

  2. I have a reservation for Conrad Maldives for January 2019 but I’m waiting for the new Astoria which is suppose to open sometime next year.

  3. Gary have you seen any Etihad Guest award space that is bookable greater than 30 days out? Seems like award space is restricted to 30 days currently.
