Travel Weekly's Hawaii E-letter: January 2, 2006

THE HAWAIIAN FESTIVAL at the Polynesian Cultural Center will kick off on Jan. 27 at 7:45 p.m. in the Hale Aloha Theater with Na Kama and the Makaha Sons, who will put on an evening concert and revue. The weekend-long festival culminates with the Moanikeala Hula Festival, starting at 10 a.m. in the Pacific Theater. Concert tickets are $8.

THE KAPALUA VILLAS introduced 2006 vacation packages, on the heels of completing the first phase of the Gold Villa upgrade program. A Golfers Holiday package includes seven nights with car rental and five rounds of golf per person with cart and club storage, starting at $3,038. All villas (standard and gold) offer high-speed Internet, daily maid service and free long distance and international phone calls.

CASTLE RESORTS & HOTELS launched its 5 for 50 incentive program for travel agents that pays a $50 bonus for every five nights booked at a participating Castle property. The incentive is valid on new bookings through wholesalers as well as with Castle directly at applicable properties located on every Hawaiian island.

OUTRIGGER RESORTS President and CEO David Carey said the Waikiki Beach Walk is on schedule and is set for completion in 12 months. The project includes the demolition of three hotels as well as several smaller surrounding buildings, the construction of an Embassy Suites Hotel and the conversion of two former Ohana Hotel towers to a Fairfield Hawaii timeshare property.

THE VERA WANG BOUTIQUE opened this week in the Halekulani hotel. Wangs Pacific outpost showcases her home furnishings line in the store located just off the courtyard in the center of the hotel. The Vera Wang Suite opened in the Halekulani one year ago.
