Why It's A Deal On a recent Kayak search, we found multi-city airfare between San Diego, Honolulu, and Kahului (Maui) from $437 in mid-April (American Airlines). Add that to about $306 per person for a three-night stay at the Aston Waikiki Beachside Hotel and about $165 per person for a three-night stay at the Aston Maui Lu (inclusive of taxes, but not resort fees), and you'd pay at least $908 if you booked this deal independently. For $119 less, this deal gets you all the same inclusions.
More Several hotel upgrade options are available, including: an upgrade to the Queen Kapiolani Hotel in Honolulu and the Kaanapali Beach Hotel in Maui, from $80 per person; and an upgrade to the Hilton Waikiki Beach and the Maui Coast Hotel, from $160 per person. You can also book a variety of tours and activities through Gate 1, such as a half-day tour of Pearl Harbor, the Arizona Memorial, and the Punchbowl National Cemetery, from $35 per person, or a traditional luau, from $79 per person.
