What would happen if it is in your suitcase?!

All luggage is x-rayed on arrival so no chance of sneaking it in.

I don't drink alcohol really... Am impartial to the odd pimms and lemonade but that's as far as it goes!!

It's a Muslim country and they take this law seriously. Don't do it, there is no good ending to it. They will scan your case ( even hand bags are scanned) search it when hey see something, and then take the booze off of you, at which point you will have held everyone up or at least been the centre of attention, and everyone is keen to get through that bag scanning queue and out.

Plus if folks have to wait for you to get on the bus to get a seaplane.simply because you are having your luggage searched etc, it's not exactly a positive thing.

Just respect their laws and drink what is available in the resort. The pimms, the porn and the pork needs to stay at home:))

It's ok, I never had any intention of taking any of the above with me!! A few rounds of drugs though, but will make sure take prescriptions with me!!
