The Whaler celebrates

Discounted rates for stays at the The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach are now being offered by Aston Hotels & Resorts, to celebrate completion of The Whaler’s $14 million exterior renovations. These include enhanced lanais with new tiles, railings and planter boxes and a contemporary earth tone colour palette. This recent reno project was preceded by major pool, garden courtyard and porte cochere improvement initiatives in 2009. With its two classic, 12-storey towers, the luxury condo resort on Kaanapali Beach is located across from two championship golf courses and adjacent to Whalers Village shopping center. Each studio, one- and two-bedroom suite has a full kitchen and spacious, private lanai with views of Kaanapali Beach or the resort’s tropical gardens. The rates are available for booking until June 19, and start at US$175 per night for studio garden view room. One/two bedroom ocean view suites start from US$299 per night. (
