Resort encourages guests to relax while they manage holiday shopping, wrapping and shipping
My Hawaii series continues with a look at personal shopping in Honolulu…The most luxurious way to get holiday shopping done this season is to go on vacation! For those who would rather spend quality time with family and friends instead of waiting in long lines or scouring the internet to find a gift for everyone on their list, Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach has the ultimate solution: vacation on the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii and let a personal shopper do the work for you! The island’s chic destination has partnered with prestigious personal shopping expert Kim Smith to make this holiday season the most leisurely ever with their exclusive “Beachside Personal Shopper” package.
Renowned as a shopping mecca, with an unmatched combination of exclusive designer goods from Tiffany & Co., Chanel, Gucci, and more, along with one-of-a-kind local finds, guests will gain access to the best of Waikiki retail without ever having to step foot inside a store or wait in line. When booking the package, guests will fill out a style and budget questionnaire to discover any likes and dislikes that may help in the customization process, along with a wish list if one so desires. A call will then be arranged with Smith herself to discuss the questionnaire to ensure that she understands their vision. Upon arrival, a curated selection of gifts will be delivered to guests’ beachside suite so they can decide what they would like to keep, have wrapped and shipped back compliments of the resort or returned to the stores. At the guest’s discretion, an in-person consultation can be arranged and further shopping can be booked.
Whisked away to the newly transformed modern wonder that is “Alohilani” in their personal VIP transport, guests will be greeted with a gift of their own, a selection of luxury Hawaiian-made spa products from Malie Organics. Each morning, they will rise to the unparalleled views of the Pacific from the tranquility of an impeccably designed one-bedroom suite and enjoy breakfast at the locally-crafted breakfast buffet, Lychee, overlooking the wonders of native Hawaiian reef fish in the iconic Oceanarium. With the pop of a complimentary bottle of sparkling Rose, guests will lounge the day away in a private cabana perched atop a reflecting pool on the seascape infinity pool deck.
One of the most sought-after Hawaiian escapes checks the most tedious of tasks off holiday lists, leaving guests fully relaxed and ready to take on the hustle and bustle of the busiest time of the year. The 4-night minimum Beachside Personal Shopper package is available now through December 31, 2018.
