Some clients want only the best when they travel. Others are looking for a once-in-a-lifetime trip to celebrate a special occasion. Either way, the following five Hawaii hotel packages will keep clients satisfied with goodies galore — while paying handsome commissions to travel agents, too.
Earth, Wind & Fire: Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina (Oahu)The sky’s the limit with this premium package from Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina, which comes with a day charter to Hawaii Island. Guests embark on a helicopter adventure over the island’s dramatic natural landmarks, soaring over sights of sizzling lava flows and waterfall-laced cliffs, with landings in several remote spots. During one stop, guests take part in a private legacy tree planting, and they dig into a gourmet, five-course meal with wine. At journey’s end, they fly back to the west Oahu resort and relax in a luxurious, two-bedroom penthouse suite with living and dining rooms, a service kitchen and stunning views from the lanai. (Rates begin at $16,800.)
Exactly Like Nothing Else: Mauna Kea Beach Hotel (Hawaii Island)Clients who book this package are treated to Mauna Kea Beach Hotel’s many unique selling points. They go on a private manta ray snorkel tour with a respected researcher and enjoy a customized tour of the hotel’s rare art collection. Guests also partake in a deluxe helicopter tour over an active volcano, as well as visit the resort’s fascinating on-site beehives — the source of Mauna Kea Resort honey — to savor a honey cocktail and charcuterie board. Travelers also receive an in-room amenity of honey and granola bars. More perks enhancing the stay are a round of golf, a seaside tennis lesson and a rental car for the duration of the visit. (A five-night minimum is required, and rates start from $6,630 for five nights.)
Love Is in the Air: Montage Kapalua Bay (Maui)When it’s time for a wedding proposal par excellence, this deal from Montage Kapalua Bay handles all the details. A client pops the big question in the resort’s historic Cliff House, which is prepared with rose-petal-strewn pathways, champagne and a solo musician. Later, couples are whisked to Oahu by helicopter for a private ring consultation at the House of Harry Winston, followed by an island tour. Other lavish perks include a one-hour engagement photo session, a couples spa package, dinner at the resort’s signature restaurant and daily breakfast. As the icing on the cake, the bride- and groom-to-be stay in Montage Kapalua’s premier oceanview penthouse. (A three-night minimum stay is required, and the price begins at $25,000 for three nights.)
VIP Pinnacle Penthouse: Modern Honolulu (Oahu)Clients will feel like they’re vacationing on Cloud Nine with Modern Honolulu’s posh package, which provides accommodations in a cosmopolitan penthouse. The dreamy dwelling boasts an expansive wraparound terrace that offers views of the ocean and Honolulu skyline. Guests could do worse than spend the entire visit in these lofty digs. However, as part of the package, they also get daily breakfast for two, a nightly amenity, two 50-minute spa treatments, a poolside bed rental and VIP concierge service. (Rates begin at $3,500 per night.)
Waikiki Luxury Wellness: The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach (Oahu)Who wouldn’t want to stay in Waikiki’s only four-bedroom suite? This package from The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach makes that wish come true while emphasizing rejuvenation and Hawaiian heritage. Clients go on a guided cultural excursion in lush Manoa Valley, then unwind with daily, signature, island-inspired spa treatments that focus on peace, renewal and revitalization. On one night, a private chef creates a made-to-order, in-residence dinner; additionally, the kitchen is stocked with fresh ingredients and suggested recipes. Rounding it out is a yoga or fitness class and upscale airport transfers. Guests receive a journal as a take-home gift, encouraging them to reflect on their experience throughout the visit.
