Mitch’s Travel: Halekulani Corp. forges alliance with Japan airlines

Halekulani Corp., which includes globally-acclaimed luxury resort Halekulani and Waikiki Parc Hotel, is pleased to announce an inspiring partnership with Japan’s premier air travel provider, Japan Airlines (JAL).  From June 1 to August 31, 2012, the alliance will extend the hotel’s renowned gracious hospitality and iconic services to flyers on the Narita – Honolulu route. Offering JAL’s discerning clients a taste of Halekulani Living, a unique lifestyle that is distinctly Halekulani and founded upon the core principles of Connoisseur, Wellness, Masterworks, and Legacy, this collaboration marks a new phase in the airline’s focus to extend a cultured experience and deliver a personalized service. The alliance builds upon Halekulani and JAL’s existing relationships with Japan’s legendary hotel group, Imperial Hotel, LTD of Tokyo. 
“The partnerships of Halekulani, Imperial Hotel and JAL offer a powerful fusion of legacy-based world class services that provides the discerning Japanese traveler with a fluid, harmonious experience in either or both locales,” said Peter Shaindlin, chief operating officer of Halekulani Corp. in a news release. “It’s about offering the best of both worlds to every guest: two iconic, luxury independent hotels, east and west, at your personal service from door to door.”
Halekulani’s three most popular signature drinks will be offered throughout the evening in JAL’s First Class Lounge and Sakura Lounge at Narita Airport. Each beverage perfectly captures the essence of the world-class hotel. A tropical cocktail, the Halekulani Sunset features fresh guava, pineapple, rum and orchid flower. The Halekulani Iced Tea is the ideal summer infusion with a hint of lime for a refreshing finish, while the Passion Fruit Iced Tea offers a dash of sweetness from passion fruit that instantly brings a taste of Hawaii. In addition, Halekulani’s iconic Coconut Cake, featuring custard cream and a handcrafted raspberry sauce with a sprinkling of fresh coconut shavings, will be offered in JAL’s Executive Class onboard its three daily Narita-Honolulu flights.
Furthermore, as part of the alliance, all travelers who make reservations on a JAL flight to Honolulu during the Halekulani Fair taking place at Imperial Hotel Tokyo until June 30 will receive access to the JAL Sakura Lounge at Narita Airport through August 31, 2012.
Halekulani, meaning “House Befitting Heaven,” is an oasis of luxury, fine cuisine and personalized service for travelers worldwide. The property’s highly acclaimed original cocktails, refreshing iced teas and signature coconut cake, served every day at the hotel’s historical House Without A Key outdoor lounge and at award-winning Orchids restaurant represent one of the many unparalleled experiences of Halekulani.
