Travaasa Experiential Resorts and Enterprise Rent-A-Car Announce New Rental Car Partnership Serving Hana, Maui
Travaasa Experiential Resorts is proud to announce a partnership with Enterprise Rent-A-Car to provide the convenience of rental car services in the charming seaside town of Hana, Maui. This exciting partnership makes it possible for travelers to drive the famous Road to Hana and fly back to Kahului Airport, or vice versa.
Travelers may choose between two types of vehicles: a Chevy Malibu or a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. To take advantage of the new twice-daily flight service from Kahului to Hana, one-way drop offs at Kahului Airport and Travaasa Hana are available for an additional fee. Vehicles may be booked exclusively through Travaasa Hana by calling (808) 248-8211, and services are also available to non-hotel guests.
“We’re pleased to offer our guests a new option for experiencing the adventure and beauty of Hana and thank Enterprise Rent-A-Car for this partnership,” said Chris Manning, co-founder and president of Travaasa Experiential Resorts. “Our guests will appreciate the convenience of renting a vehicle right on property for any day trips they’d like to take in and around Hana. Or, they can do a fly and drive combination on the Road to Hana. With our recently introduced flights from Kahului to Hana, this is the perfect addition to Travaasa Hana’s offerings.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with Travaasa Hana and introduce rental car operations for visitors of Hana,” said John Foy, area sales manager for Enterprise Rent-A-Car. “This area is an increasingly popular destination and we anticipate this will be a welcome new service.”
Located at the end of the famous Road to Hana on Maui’s picturesque eastern shore, Travaasa Hana is a boutique resort made up of 70 cottages and suites, surrounded by natural beauty and known for its Hawaiian cultural heritage and small town charm. Guests enjoy activities such as throw net fishing, hula and ukulele lessons, stand-up paddle boarding, coastal horseback rides, coconut husking, morning yoga, and more.
The AAA Four Diamond Hotel was rated the No. 1 resort in Hawaii in the 2011 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards Poll, while The Spa at Travaasa Hana was named the No. 1 Resort Spa in Hawaii.
