Despite global slowdown, the return of international visitors is a bright spot for Hawaii

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – As travel restrictions ease across the globe, Hawaii is welcoming the return of international visitors ― who could be key to a robust economic recovery.

Tourists from one Asian country in particular are happy to be back and eager to spend.

Multinational marketing company Unicity is bringing in hundreds of Korean employees for a paid vacation in Honolulu, a reward for their hard work.

“When Hawaii was named the destination, employees worked harder to be able to come here.” said Eunjoo Lee, chairman’s club member of Unicity Korea, through a translator.

Mira Yoon’s tour company is organizing the group’s excursions. She says Unicity had to take charter flights from Korea because there weren’t enough commercial flights available.

2022 is the year of all-inclusive travel, and here’s why

The hotel name Zoetry (in Zoetry Montego Bay Jamaica) has an umlaut mark over the letter “e.”

For some travelers, all-inclusive hotels conjure up images of flavorless food served under a heat lamp in lush and vibrant destinations where guests never actually leave the resort grounds. Lower-tier liquor flows freely (the good stuff will cost you more), as the few overindulgers put a damper on the trip.

That image is changing, as hotel companies expand their offerings, while redefining what all-inclusive means.

HOTELS ARE GROWING THEIR ALL-INCLUSIVE BRANDS

Many hotel companies are rapidly adding all-inclusive resorts to their portfolio. Hyatt’s acquisition of Apple Leisure Group in November 2021 made it one of the largest owners of luxury all-inclusive resorts in the world.

That acquisition included the luxury-focused AMR Collection, which has beachfront properties in Mexico and Central America. That means there are now more than 100 new resorts for visitors
