Premier Resorts sets pricing on packages in Kauai


PRINCEVILLE, KAUAI -- Premier Resorts released a number of package deals at its four Kauai properties that span the spectrum from value to luxury.

Current pricing on five- to seven-night packages is valid through July 26, while shorter-stay packages are valid through Dec. 22. All packages are commissionable at 10%.

At the Cliffs Resort in Princeville on Kauai's north shore, for example, the Suite and Car package offers accommodations for four people in a one-bedroom condominium with a sofa bed in the living room and daily use of a rental car. The rate is $180 per night, valid through Dec. 22.

Premier's rental pool at the Cliffs contains 17 units, according to Sally Proctor, regional director for Premier in Hawaii.

The Cliffs offers one-bedroom units that sleep up to four and one-bedroom units with a loft that sleep up to six. Each unit has a full kitchen, two bathrooms, a TV, a stereo and two outdoor decks.

The property also features four tennis courts, a pool with two hot tubs, a putting green, a Ping-Pong table, bike rentals and a horseshoe pit.

The Cliffs is set on a high bluff with the open ocean on one side and Hanalei Bay on the other. The property is about a 10-minute drive from the town of Hanalei.

Also at the Cliffs, Premier offers the Longer Stay package, valid through July 26. It covers accommodations for up to four in a one-bedroom unit, for $756 to $840 a week, depending on the view. Golf and Honeymoon packages of two and three nights are available, as well.

Proctor said the Cliffs property is the most value-oriented of the Premier properties on Kauai, "and for people who don't want to drive everywhere for everything, it is excellent."

On the other end of the island, Premier has 21 units available at Whalers Cove, a small, intimate property set on a rocky stretch of coastline in Poipu.

"The Poipu property is the nicest one we have here in the islands," said Proctor. "Not all the units there are alike, but they are all quality."

The units come in one- and two-bedroom configurations. The two-bedroom units have two different kinds of layouts, both with two bathrooms. There is an upstairs-downstairs model and a one-floor model.

Premier also has two larger suites available at Whalers Cove. The ground floor units are on one floor and open onto a lanai and an expanse of grass and coconut trees that extends to a small drop-off overlooking the ocean.

The upper-level units have two bedrooms upstairs, and in the master bedroom there is a bathroom with a shower that has a floor-to-ceiling window that looks out to the ocean.

In addition, Whalers Cove features a pool and a hot tub for guest use.

The Suite and Car package at Whalers Cove costs $349 a night for up to two in a one-bedroom unit. Five-night packages in the one-bedroom units for up to two guests run from $1,499, and the five-night stay in a two-bedroom unit for up to six is $1,999. Also at Whalers Cove, three-night romance and two-night golf packages are available.

In addition to the Cliffs and Whalers Cove, Premier has seven rental units at the Lae Nani resort in Kapaa and 108 units at the Kauai Coast Resort, also in Kapaa.
