Hawaii Vacation Deals and News Roundup for October 6th

  • I feel a bit like a broken record, but I need to repeat that Hawaii deals are in abundance! In fact, according to the Star Bulletin, the “Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau begins its sale of travel packages at below 2007 prices as part of a $4.5 million marketing campaign to boost travel during the U.S. economic crisis.” See their current listing of Hawaii deals.
  • The Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island’s Kohala Coast is offering a third night free from now through December 20th in ocean view or higher guest room categories. You can combine this package with other offers including $200 in resort credit and breakfast offer
  • Hawaii continues to be a top destination for Expedia.com customers. Expedia is rolling out new Hawaii deals.  Might be worth a peak if you’ve not checked out their deals in a while.  
  • The section of road between Kaupo and Kipahulu on the Piilani Highway has reopened. It had been closed for nearly two years due to the earthquake damage in October 2006. You might know this section of road better as the south side of the Road to Hana. Though this road is open again most of the major rental car companies forbid driving here. You should check with your rental car company before driving this section.
  • There’s a hot new luau on the Big Island at the Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa.  It’s called Firenesia and it debuts tonight. “Full of excitement and drama, entertainers showcase the beauty of fire under the stars while guests feast on Hawaiian lu‘au favorites and contemporary fare and sip cocktails at the open bar.” For more information visit www.firenesia.com.
  • Chapter 14 of the Carnival of Aloha is up with many interesting articles about Hawaii.
  • Here’s a touching story that you must watch.  Veteran Michael Yuhas returns to Hawaii for the first time in 67 years after surviving the attack at Pearl Harbor. It was his wish for his 90th birthday that he would get to return to Hawaii.
