Condominium Connection, a Hawaii wholesaler, is experiencing a sudden summer surge in booking activity, with 41 percent of its customers seeking travel within the next 45 days. The company attributes much of the increase to value-added pricing -- as much as 45 percent off of previously published hotel and condominium rates for travel now through Aug. 25, 2010.
Condominium Connection’s Hawaii summer rates are seeing nightly lead prices from $64 at Aqua Maile Sky Court on Oahu, $85 at Aston Aloha Beach Hotel on Kauai, $103 at Aston Maui Lu, and $104 at Castle Kona Bali Kai on Hawaii's Big Island. Hawaii’s hottest destinations for last -minute reservations are Oahu and Maui, with about 80 percent of the total demand between them.
Prices are based on five-night-minimum packages and are land only, double occupancy.
