* Here’s an excellent article from Seattle’s Parent Map that’s filled with ideas on how to save money on a Maui family vacation.
* One of the best Hawaii luxury deals I’ve seen in a while is this one to stay at Maui’s Kapalua Ritz-Carlton for $299 per night. In addition to the steeply discounted rate, the deal includes free breakfast for two, $100 resort credit, and upgraded room if available. For rate comparison, I blogged about the newly renovated Kapalua Ritz-Carlton reopening last year. At that time and for many months, the lowest room rate was $599. There were absolutely no freebies and discounts back then either. If you wanted to stay there, you essential paid rack rates. If I was planning a honeymoon to Maui, I’d snap this deal up in a hurry!
* Another luxury property, the Fairmont Orchid on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island, is on sale for $199 per night for summer travel between June and September, with some blackout dates. See this link for booking details.
* Yesterday, I blogged about the excellent airfare from Virginia/Maryland areas to Hawaii. There’s a few more special United Airline one-way fares (based on round-trip purchase) to share with you.
