AQUA HOSPITALITY OFFERS SIX ISLAND MEETING EXPERIENCE TO FIT ANY GROUP NEED

Honolulu, Hawaii- March 26, 2014– As the only hotel company with properties on Hawaii’s six main islands, Aqua Hospitality (www.aquahospitality.com) offers groups unparalleled access to the state’s unique experiences through its range of properties, each with distinct accommodations, spaces and services. To showcase its broad appeal, Aqua has created the “six island experience,” a cheat-sheet for groups and meeting planners that pairs up hotels on each island with a specific group need.

“Having diverse properties on all the islands gives us the ability to tailor experiences to fit the needs of any group,” said Elizabeth Churchill, senior vice president of sales and marketing. “No matter what the event – team building escape, executive retreat, annual meeting, off-the-grid adventure – Aqua has the ideal property.”

Aqua’s six island experience partners the perfect hotel with the specific reason for gathering. The list is by no means comprehensive of the collection. Rather, it is intended as a reference for meeting planners to provide them with an idea of what Aqua can offer. For more information, groups can visit www.aquahospitality.com or call group sales at 808-687-7109.

Aqua Hospitality’s Six Island Experience

Golf Meetings – Hotel Wailea Maui: Nestled in the hillside above Wailea Beach and adjacent
to Wailea Golf Club, Hotel Wailea Maui is an unbeatable location for golf meetings in Hawaii. Groups are within walking distance to three championship golf courses and just a short shuttle ride away from one of Maui’s most popular beaches. The all-suite hotel offers newly renovated rooms with kitchens, panoramic ocean views and private lanais- perfect for savoring the sunset after a long day on the course.

Executive Retreat – Volcano House: There’s nothing like an erupting volcano to light a fire among an executive board. This 33-room historic property recently reopened after a $3 million renovation and offers a one-of-a-kind location within Volcanoes National Park. Executives enjoy Hawaiian vintage-inspired hotel rooms, a Pacific Rim restaurant, cultural/gift shop and relaxing lounge area all with views of the spectacular crater. Plus, groups can arrange private tours of the park. It’s the perfect environment to inspire bonding and creativity away from the office.

City Meetings/Island Views – Aqua Queen Kapiolani: For meetings with an urban vibe and spectacular views, Aqua Queen Kapiolani is hard to beat. The hotel features expansive meeting and banquet facilities, as well as a large outdoor deck with unobstructed views of Diamond Head crater. Rooms feature views of the ocean, Kapiolani Park and/or Diamond Head. When it’s time to explore, guests are just a short block away from the beach, Honolulu Zoo, Waikiki Aquarium, Kapiolani Park and Waikiki shopping.

Team Building – Aqua Kauai Beach Resort: Kauai’s lush tropical landscape and abundance of outdoor recreation options makes it a sought-after location for a variety of team-building activities. Aqua Kauai Beach Resort, an eco-friendly, plantation-style resort situated on 25 acres of Kauai’s longest strolling beach, helps any team building session get off to a great start. Stylish accommodations, multiple saltwater pools, a 75-foot lava tube water slide and a location near the airport, shopping, championship golf, kayaking and more make this a group favorite.

Buy Out – Aqua Hotel Lanai: Located in the heart of Lanai City, Aqua Hotel Lanai is a charming plantation style retreat with an intimate restaurant by award-winning island chef Beverly Gannon. With only 11 rooms, small groups can “buy out” the hotel and enjoy easy access to golf, the beach, snorkeling, horseback riding, sporting clays and more.

Pre/Post Trips – Aqua Hotel Molokai: One of the least developed islands, Molokai offers a peaceful hideaway from the frantic pace of life, as well as rugged adventure.

The hotel features renovated rooms, nightly entertainment and an oceanfront pool and sundeck.
