Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip airfare from San Diego to Honolulu starts from $358 in late-January (Hawaiian Airlines). Add to that $188 per person including taxes for three nights at the Aston Waikiki Beachside Hotel, and you're spending $546 for airfare and accommodation alone. For $17 less, this package gives you airfare, three nights' accommodations on Oahu's famous Waikiki Beach, and all taxes and fees.

More Several optional tours are available, including a full day circle island tour with stops at Diamond Head and Dole Plantation for $69 per person, or half-day historical tour of Pearl Harbor, the USS Arizona Memorial, and Punchbowl National Cemetery for $35 per person. A variety of Luau options are available as well, ranging from the standard Paradise Cove Luau experience for $79 per person to the full-day package for $139 per person.
