Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip airfare from San Diego to Maui starts from $539 in late-January (American Airlines). Add to that $136 per person including taxes for three nights at the Courtyard King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel, and you're spending $675 for airfare and accommodation alone. For just $34 more, this package gives you airfare, three nights' accommodation in Kona, and all taxes and fees.
More Several optional tours are available, including a full-day circle island bus tour—with stops at Volcanoes National Park, Parker Ranch, and several other popular Big Island attractions—for $85 per person, a dolphin and glass bottom boat cruise from Kailua-Kona to Keauhou Bay for $89 per person, or an authentic hula experience at the Royal Kona Luau for $79 per person.
