Outstanding Personalized Service in our Honeymoon planning!

March 30, 2009

Bula bula Teresa!

You provided my wife and I with outstanding personalized service in preparing our trip (that due to unexpected wedding budget overruns, we were unfortunately unable to take at that time). It was so outstanding that when my friend Mike B said that he was planning his honeymoon to Fiji, I told him that he MUST contact you to plan a trip.

My wife and I still plan on getting to the Fiji islands within the next 2 years, and I promise that you will be the first person that we contact for travel reservations and trip planning.

Aloha Teresa!

Bryan McN!

Mauna Kea Beach Resort - the Grand Dame of the South Pacific is open again!

March 17, 2009

Mauna Kea BeachLaurance S. Rockefeller built The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel in 1965. He knew the great beach at Kauna’oa also deserved spectacular golf and exceptional dining to accompany the most exclusive and expensive resort of its day.

The famed Big Island of Hawaii resort re-opened following an extensive multi-million dollar restoration to the delight of new guests and loyal, long-standing returning patrons who have enjoyed the resort’s signature hospitality since it’s grand opening.

“The ‘Grand Dame’ of the Big Island of Hawaii will continue to perpetuate the true Hawaiian traditions of aloha, coupled with the classic elegance of the Hawaiian Islands that it has been known for,” says the resort’s new General Manager, Jon Gersonde. “The goal of the restoration has been to update and refine The Mauna Kea’s reputation as a sophisticated and intimate luxury beachfront resort. We have reopened with new luxurious accommodations and amenities of the highest caliber, a revitalized golf course with new clubhouse, and, of course, our signature tradition of excellent service.”

New amenities at The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel include a spa offering an array of exotic treatments; exciting new culinary experiences stewarded by Executive Chef George Gomes; and newly refurbished guest rooms. The total room and suite count has been reduced from 310 to 258 as a result of rooms being enlarged in the main building. Many of the resorts popular services and activities will also return, including the 13-court Seaside Tennis Club, the Salon at Mauna Kea & Hawaiian cultural experiences.

The Maui Prince is one of my favorite romantic resorts in the Hawaiian Islands. It is a quiet haven infused with aloha and style. The laid back atmosphere belies the quality of service available to the Guests staying at the Maui Prince.

Secluded on a perfect crescent beach at the foot of Haleakala, the Maui Prince Hotel was designed for tranquility and rejuvenation. All rooms surround an Asian meditation garden with stone paths, quiet corners for contemplation, waterfalls and streams plentiful with multi-colored carp. This creates a spectacular open-air atrium on the inside, while on outside, every guest room vista frames the blue Pacific.

Mahalo for Everything! Our Hawaiian Weddingmoon was Perfect!

March 10, 2009

maui palmtreeAloha!

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for everything! The whole weddingmoon trip to the islands was a blast and everyone had just a fabulous time. The Old Lahaina luau and surfing lesson were so much fun - definitely worth it!
It is hard to nail down our favorite place, as each island was so unique and had so many fun adventures. We really loved Kauai, as we drove around to Hanalei on the North Shore, and we fell in love with that area. We lucked out with the earthquake as we left the Big Island the day prior - whew! Though we did feel it over on Kauai.

I would be more than happy to be a reference for you, as you really made our whole wedding and honeymoon so much easier. It was great to have everything taken care of ahead of time, so all we had to do was show up. I’ll send you a link to our online photos and feel free to use them too. I think that is ok as far as usage rights?

Hope all is well, and thanks again for everything… Hopefully we’ll be back to the islands soon!
Best, Sara

Wadigi Island was the honeymoon of my dreams!

March 8, 2009

wadigi islandHi Teresa,
Oh my goodness - words cannot describe how perfect Wadigi Island was for us! First, for future, we will CERTAINLY helicopter over to Wadigi. After flying for so long on a plane, we just wanted to be there and waiting around for so long was the only “un-fun” part of the trip. So, I know we could only go early if no one was there, but the 2-hour catamaran really did drag on. So, I know you warned us and we should have listened…the extra money would have been worth the helicopter - so next time.

But, WOW when we got there, everything was worth it! We knew it the moment we saw the island. I get teary-eyed just thinking about it. Boof the dog was waiting for us with his beautiful lei on..he was so cute. Tia came over and picked us up on the boat and while we were coming in, everyon was waving and waiting for us.

But we walked up all the stairs and got to the top where the Fijian staff was singing and playing guitars and waiting with a nice welcome drink. We just wanted to take a shower, but afterwards we enjoyed a wonderful lunch. The food was absolutely amazing the entire time…seriously very gourmet. The accomodations were incredible. We loved the outdoor shower and it was air-conditioned in the suites so that was nice too. We ate outside everyday with the breeze blowing. The infinity pool was to die for...we spent a LOT of time there.

Ryan likes to tell people “the water was as blue as the sky, which was bright blue EVERY day.” and that is sowadigi island private island true. The weather could not have been nicer. Bright and sunny every day - very little humidity.

While we were there, we went snorkelling several times - Vika always packed us a nice cooler full of sodas and water so we could enjoy a cold drink out on the water. Tia and Meke were so much fun - they took us to all these places and helped us with EVERYTHING. We had never been snorkelling so I was a bit scared and Tia just eased me into the water and I was a pro in no time!

We went tubing and water skiing…we even got Meke to try! It was so much fun. Tia took us to his village (which was no extra cost) and it was very cool to see the different culture. We bought lots of souvenirs from them, which they thanked us profusely for.

So, what did I leave out? Something, I’m sure. But everything was phenomenal. We had the BEST time. It was soooo romantic and we had lots of romantic moments and time to ourselves. But when we wanted someone to help us with something or make us a drink, they were right there. It was perfect - if we wanted to be left alone, you wouldn’t even know they were there…you could walk around nude! But, if you needed ANYTHING, they were right there. Boof was great b/c we LOVE dogs and we missed our boy Jake so much.

You know, when we first booked this place we did it because we knew we would never do something like this again. We wanted a honeymoon we would never forget. And, we got it. However, we are already planning on how we can save enough money to go back!

Well I have taken up enough of your time - I could talk about it forever - I really could. I have my pictures in an album and I have been showing EVERYBODY back here. Everyone is so impressed and just can’t believe their eyes. They were in awe…which is exactly how we were the whole time on the island. I cannot thank you enough for the honeymoon of my dreams…I will never forget it. And we will be calling you in the near future to try and set up going again.
Vinaka!
Angela & Ryan
