Pacific Destinations: Mexico And Hawaii
Globetrotters with their sights set on Hawaii are now privy to the world’s first luxury travel subscription. The new Inspirato Pass allows members to book luxury trips via its private destination club and hospitality partners without nightly rates, taxes or fees. Passholders have access to 1,594 luxury resort properties and vacation homes in Kohala Coast, Kapalua, Wailea and Koala, Kauai for $2,500 per month, whether they travel weekly, monthly or a couple times of year. Among the offerings: The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua; The Lodge at Kukui’ula in Kauai; Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort; and Montage Kapalua Bay.
Each trip includes booking and itinerary assistance, plus on-site concierges. Visit the website to browse available trips (which refresh daily) and make a reservation. “The best part of Inspirato Pass in Hawaii is it’s the same no matter where you want to travel,” says Brent Handler, founder and CEO of Inspirato, the hospitality company that created the travel subscription. “There are some great trips on the list this fall valued at more than $10,000.”
Hilton’s Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts has joined with Walton Street Capital to bring the first Waldorf Astoria to Mexico. Formerly The Resort at Pedregal, the rebranded property is set to debut later this year in Los Cabos as Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal, complete with 115 modern yet authentic Mexican-style guestrooms and suites resting amid 24 acres boasting a stunning backdrop of mountains, the Pacific and the Sea of Cortez.
Expect the same exclusive service and world-class amenities the brand is known for, including the Luna y Mar Spa (with indulgent organic treatments from herbal detoxes to rose-crystal lymphatic facials); several culinary options (like the signature restaurant, Don Manuel’s, specializing in a menu of traditional Mexican dishes made using local and regional ingredients); and a full lineup of curated experiences highlighting the Baja Peninsula’s land, wildlife and people. Says Dino Michael, global head of Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts: “We look forward to combining the resort’s exclusive environment and guest-focused comforts with the brand’s unparalleled commitment to personal service to ensure our guests have the experience of a lifetime.”
