Hawaii Vacation Deals & News: December 18, 2013


* Our massive Waikiki Christmas and Oahu New Year’s Eve posts have been updated with quite a few additions. One point worth quickly highlighting is that Aloha Tower will not be hosting New Year’s Eve fireworks, which probably comes to a surprise to many as they have put on one of the island’s biggest shows for many years.

* Travelzoo has an outstanding deal for the Sheraton Kona Resort in Keauhou. The deal is $139 per night for a non-ocean-view room and $159 per night for an ocean-view room. A daily $30 resort fee is required in addition to the room rate. Check this deal out here.

* Travelzoo has a great Kauai getaway package for a Princeville condo including a full kitchen, separate living room, two full baths and a washer/dryer. Each one-bedroom unit accommodates up to four people. The deal works out to $140 – 153 per night depending on your length of stay. The $75 resort fee is waived for this deal.
