We are planning to be there in late March.  We are looking into ‘all-inclusive’ package.  

Since I will leave from East Asia, I need to stop at either Malaysia or Singapore.  We might do one day at one of those cities.  

Since our resort is ‘all-inclusive’, I will not pack much of snacks.  However, I will strongly advise that you pack lots of snacks since IT IS REALLY EXPENSIVE.  When I went to Bora Bora, I packed; nuts, beef jerky. protein bars, dried fruits, etc.  

I would love to dine at the Undersea Restaurant.

Are any of you still going? with all of this political unrest going on? We haven’t booked it yet but we were supposed to go ๐Ÿ™ I’m scared to book it because apparently they have had a lot of cancellations.

I hate to say it but I (just me, here) would probably wait until things are a bit more stable…it’s not just the spa/booze bans but the whole sense of unrest I get from what I have been reading in the news. I have a fear of spending so much time/effort/planning for my honeymoon and then having it fall apart at the last minute. 

That said, I’m generally more paranoid than most, and I have friends who went there on their honeymoon and they are probably some of the most amazing photos I’ve seen. So I don’t blame you for wanting to go there. I’ll get there at some point. 

If you do book, I recommend getting really good insurance coverage – with “cancel for any reason” coverage (you have to get it within 15 days or something of booking though).

I too would love to go there, but there is just too much unrest going on. It might be okay, but I personally don’t want to chance it.
