It was a triple treat for ResortQuest Hawaii at the recent
Rendezvous Tours’ 2005 Hawaii Travel Industry Awards Event.
Formerly known as Aston Hotels & Resorts Hawaii, the company
was awarded three “Best Condominium” island awards from Rendezvous,
Hawaii’s largest interisland travel package wholesaler.
Top honors were received by the ResortQuest Waikiki Beach Tower on
Oahu, the newly renovated ResortQuest Kaanapali Shores on Maui and
on the golf front, ResortQuest Shores at Waikoloa on the Big
In addition, ResortQuest at Poipu Kai and ResortQuest Waimea
Plantation Cottages ranked as second and third place finalists in
the “Best Condominium” category for Kauai. ResortQuest Waikoloa
Colony Villas also received nods as the third place finalist in the
“Best Condominium” category for the Big Island.
This year’s annual survey honors were determined by an online poll
of over 400 Hawaii retail travel agents who specialize in
interisland bookings. In respect to casting their votes, agents
weighed positive feedback from clients, support from resort sales
staff and accommodation value.
ResortQuest Hawaii was the only hotel company in the Hawaiian
Islands to receive “triple recognition” among winners for 13
different award slots.
“We are truly honored to have key properties in the ResortQuest
Hawaii family recognized as island favorites among local travel
professionals who regularly sell Hawaii accommodations,” said
Kelvin Bloom, president of ResortQuest Hawaii. “This acknowledgment
marks ResortQuest Hawaii’s fourth consecutive year as being
recognized for its high-quality resort condominium vacation
product. And we are very proud of our outstanding property and
corporate sales staff for making this happen.”
