What could be sweeter than delivering more for your clients’ vacation budgets? The Kauai Beach Hotel & Resort (formerly known as Radisson Kauai Beach Resort) tempts travelers with a variety of packages to bring special values to those seeking a relaxed ambiance and central location on Kauai.

Situated on a three-mile stretch of beach on the island’s eastern “Coconut Coast,” the deluxe 25-acre property provides the ideal home base for exploring all of Kauai.

“The package market segment has always been a very good segment for us because many people would like to make their vacation life easier and just purchase an all-inclusive package,” noted John Kiszla, director of sales and marketing. “I also think that for many years, the travel agent community has groomed the traveler and spoiled them, too by packaging the air with hotel, etc. It’s part of the service of an agency.”

Most popular, the property’s “Bed and Breakfast in Paradise” plan includes accommodations and daily buffet breakfast for two in the Naupaka Terrace restaurant. With nightly rates from $199, the package represents a substantial savings over the hotel’s $269-349 rack rates.

A “Room and Car” option covers nightly accommodations and compact rental car use for the duration of the stay from $209 per night.

Kiszla commented that this package is well received because it just makes life easy for the traveler.

“All they have to do is book with us and we arrange everything,” he said. “Most people who visit Kauai need a car, and we can help by passing on some great car rental volume negotiated rates.”

Offering the fifth night free and a $100 resort dining credit, the “Paradise Package” is from $269 nightly based on a minimum five-night stay. For family and friends traveling together, Kauai Beach Hotel & Resort promotes a 50 percent discount off a second room when the first room is booked at rack rate.

Available through December 23, all package rates are per night, based on double occupancy and are subject to applicable taxes. All guests at the 357-room resort can enjoy complimentary airport and Kauai Lagoons Golf Course transfers, free in-room high speed internet access, Manager’s Cocktail Party each evening and a nightly torchlighting ceremony with Polynesian dance show in the pool area.

The Kauai Beach Hotel & Resort amenities include meeting and banquet facilities, three restaurants, boutique spa with fitness center and a “super pool” complex with four landscaped swimming pools set amidst waterfalls.
