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 Island.

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.”

Waikiki’s only luxury beachfront resort condominium, the 140-room ResortQuest Waikiki Beach Tower features spacious one- and two-bedroom suites, and specialty suites. Nightly rates are from $505.

Maui’s newly renovated 463-room ResortQuest Kaanapali Shores offers spacious studios with kitchenettes, plus well-appointed one- and two-bedroom suites with full-kitchens. Nightly rates are from $245.

For golf enthusiasts and travelers seeking extra space, the 120-room ResortQuest Shores at Waikoloa is perfectly situated along the 18th hole of the Waikoloa Golf Club’s Beach Course. Nightly rates are from $285.
