Big Island of Hawaii’s Kona Village Resort offering $800 airfare credit

Kona Village

Celebrities and power brokers looking to get away from it all on their Hawaii holiday have long loved the Kona Village Resort.

The reasons for the ardor are many: the resort’s secluded location on the Big Island’s Kona coast, unique beachfront Polynesian-style thatched-roof bungalows, wealth of ocean activities, lack of in-room TVs and A/C, and no-cell-phone-or-laptop-outside-of-your-room policy.

Even Apple CEO Steve Jobs—who is said to make frequent visits to the resort—has to contend with zero data ports and Wi-Fi in his bungalow. Should Jobs decide to skip the recently grounded Apple private jet and fly commercial on his next Big Island trip, he might want to make note of the resort’s current money-saving deal.

The Kona Village Resort is offering all of its guests an $800 credit to offset airfare costs. The catch? Reservations must be confirmed by May 10, 2009, for stays from May 17 to June 17.

That’s right, you have only four days left to book this deal!

To qualify, just book a bungalow—the resort calls them hale, the Hawaiian word for “house”—in the garden, superior or deluxe categories for a minimum five-night stay and present your air travel voucher. The resort will apply an $800 credit to your account upon departure. The deal also includes a complimentary room upgrade.

Families and other large groups who require multiple hale get another deal: a buy-one-get-one-half-off package. Book one hale at the standard rate and mention the word, “Togethering,” and a second hale is half the price. (We agree. It’s no fun saying togethering. But, hey, HALF-OFF!) The deal also includes 50 percent discounts on family activities such as outrigger canoe paddling and stand-up paddleboard lessons.
