The Kaanapali Beach Hotel on the western shore of Maui is one of those places with lots of free cultural activities. You can take in a sunset hula show and a ukulele lesson at the beachside hotel in Lahaina. Now there's something else too: For those who book by the end of the month, garden view rooms start at $198 a night and come with nice add-ons.
The deal: If Maui is in the cards for a getaway this year, you might want to consider what's called the Catch of the Day package. It includes:
--daily buffet breakfast for two;
--lunch for two at the hotel's Tiki Bar & Grill;--$10 discount on adult tickets for the hotel's Kupanaha Magic Dinner Theater;
--20% off a dinner entree at the Tiki Terrace Restaurant; and a $50 dinner credit at Gerard's Restaurant at sister property the Plantation Inn.
The deal requires a two-night minimum stay and starts at $198 a night plus tax. Have an extra adult? Add $55 (he or she gets daily breakfast and lunch too); children younger than 17 stay free.
When: The offer must be reserved by July 31 for travel through Dec. 23. It's based on availability; some blackout dates apply.
Tested: I went online and found good availability for the $198 price on a variety of dates I checked between mid-August and mid-October. During my search, I found garden view rooms starting at $187 a night, so it's a no-brainer to grab the deal with the perks.
If you want to book a car with this package, it costs $29 a day, and parking is free.
