On Aug. 14, Honua Kai Resort & Spa in Lahaina, Hawaii, announced the opening of their new Aloha Lounge, which will serve as an exclusive benefit of guests who book directly with the resort, who wish to arrive early or check out late to extend their stay in Hawaii. Honua Kai's all-suite luxury resort is located on Maui's Kaanapali North Beach.

Open 10 a.m.-8 p.m. daily, the Aloha Lounge will provide indoor and outdoor seating areas, towels and chairs for the pool or beach, and a kid's play area with complimentary snacks.

Honua Kai Resort & Spa also unveils their new offer Fall 4 Maui, which allows guests to save almost $500 off of regular rates and provides a $400 activity credit for activities such as whale watching and zip lining. This offer is for guests looking to travel to Hawaii in the fall or winter, and requires guests to stay at least 4 nights. Guests can choose from different room types including studio, one, two, or three-bedroom suites.

“From the moment guests arrive on property to the minute they depart, we want them to feel surrounded by true Aloha spirit,” says Claudio Andrade, general manager for Honua Kai Resort & Spa. “Our new Aloha Lounge was created to allow guests to soak in as much island time as possible. Whether they arrive prior to check-in or wish to extend their final day a few extra hours, the lounge welcomes guests to sit, stay and play. ”

Event planners often schedule meetings and events in natural places near wilderness areas, at waterfront resorts, and at mountain event spaces. But there are many ways to bring nature into your events by making use of the architectural concept of biophilic design, which can be defined as seeking to engage most people’s innate desires to affiliate with nature in the modern built environment. If you think of yourself as an “event architect,” you can use nature to stimulate the senses. 

 

It won’t be quite the same as ordering a pizza or nachos to be delivered to your front door but getting eats at venues is taking a leap toward convenience with a new collaboration: DoorDash has become ASM Global’s “On-Demand Delivery Platform” partner, launching at ASM Global’s top North American arenas, stadiums, theaters, and convention centers in the coming months. The partnership will allow attendees to skip traditional lines by leveraging DoorDash services to order within the arena for pickup.

 

The latest Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Business Travel Recovery Poll revealed that business travel is surging forward and international travel is returning alongside the challenges of rising fuel prices, inflation, supply chain disruption, and the war in Ukraine. In addition, corporate travel policies are undergoing a revamp, and a large majority of employees indicate they are willing to travel for business.
