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. ”

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.  

 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
