Advice: Have 300k Hilton Points and Need Best Axon Redemption Options
Like the title says, I've recently accumulated 300k Hilton points through credit card signups and stays and I'm looking to burn them with the most advantageous AXON/GLON booking possible.

Category 6 or 7 would definitely be preferable and I have 280k AA miles, 300k Chase UR points and about 250k Korean Air miles, so I hope it won't be too hard to get to the destination.
I'm looking to go in early July 2013, and I'd appreciate any and all input on which Hilton property to best use these points.
For reference, I'm going with my girlfriend, I'm based in LA, I've got Gold status courtesy of the Reserve Card (along with the bonus of 2 free nights which I'm going to burn on the back end of the AXON/GLON award) and I've already stayed at the Conrads in Tokyo, HK and Singapore, so those would probably be out.
Here are some of the properties I've been peeping:
Conrad Maldives - I'm not that much of a beach person, but I'd be willing to give it a shot, especially seeing some of the bloggers' pics of the amazing overwater bungalows.

Conrad Koh Samui - My girlfriend is Thai and is from Bangkok so this would be the most obvious choice.
3. Hilton Seychelles - Seems sufficiently off the beaten path, but I don't really know how to get there and/or what to do.
Rome Calavieri - Kind of a dark horse candidate. Hoping that the Euro falls against the dollar even further.
If it gets even close to 1:1, I'd book this in a second.
5. Hilton Bora Bora/Moorea - I'm a little put off by how to get to French Polynesia from Los Angeles, and also how much money I'd have to spend on the ground there, but I'd appreciate additional insight from those that have been.
These seem like the most obvious choices, but I'd appreciate any/all serious advice and feedback on this issue.
Thanks very much!
