Hawaii Vacation Packages during Coronavirus
Luxury Hotels, First-Class Air for Budget Rates: Your COVID Vacation to Hawaii
Should you book your holiday to Hawaii during Coronavirus. It will be a different from any vacation to Hawaii you every took.
Your package tour to Hawaii includes may include a flight on a private commercial jet like United Airlines, a luxury beach resort in Waikiki just for yourself, and all for the lowest budget price ever for a Hawaiian vacation.
268 tourists arrived in Honolulu yesterday according to a news release from the Hawaii Tourism Authority. Some had an entire wide-body aircraft just for their family. Keeping social distance on flights to Hawaii seems to be realistic these days.
Airfares to Hawaii are at a low, the likes of which have never been seen before. The few luxury beach hotels still open are selling rooms for the same rate as budget hotels usually do.
Shopping malls, shops, coffee shops, and restaurants are closed. One resort hotel after another is closing their doors. Not only did some passengers experience a private commercial airplane, but chances are they will be the only guest in a luxury resort hotel in Waikiki.
It sounds like the ideal Hawaiian Vacation package.
It is beautiful and sunny in the Aloha State today. The weather is ideal to work on your tropical tan. Make sure you booked a hotel room with a Lanai. Lanai is the Hawaiian word for balcony. What about requesting a suite upgrade?
Waikiki Beach Park, Kapiolani Park, and all attractions are closed. Cultural events are canceled. Forget about nightclubs, or a quiet stroll to explore the ghost town called Waikiki.
Once getting off the plane in Honolulu arriving from the US mainland, a visitor is met by a State of Hawaii agricultural officer. The visitor has to show his or her ID or Passport and provide their exact hotel information.
The officer will send the information to the Hawaii Tourism Authority’s (HTA’s) new command center at the Hawaii Convention Center. The hotel will receive a call from the Tourism Authority and must verify that there is a legitimately-secured reservation for the visitor.
Once this is verified, the visitor will be allowed to take a shuttle bus, an Uber, or taxi to the hotel. Once the guest checks in, it means he or she will be confined to his or her hotel room for 2 weeks.
Guests are not allowed to go down to the pool, use the gym, the hotel restaurants, nor the beach or the street. All of this is off-limits. Authorities will frequently and randomly call guests to make sure they answer the phone in their hotel.
Hotel staff is also the hotel police and mandated to report guests in quarantine if they attempt to leave their rooms. Since you may be the only guest, it won’t be difficult to keep track of a visitor.
The guest has to either call room service or an outside delivery like Uber Eats to get food or drinks delivered to their room.
If there is no answer, the Honolulu Police Department will send officers to the hotel and the guest may face arrest or one year in jail or a $5,000 fine.
After 2 weeks in quarantine without signs of the COVID-19 coronavirus, a guest is allowed to use hotel facilities like the pool, gym, spa, or restaurants. The streets of Waikiki and beaches still remain off-limits to anyone however, due to the Statewide stay at home rule.
Guest wanting to return home before the 2-week mandatory confinement are allowed to do so.
