Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) August 30, 2014
Starwood Hotels & Resorts Hawaii is offering guests and fans of its 11 resorts throughout Oahu, Maui, Kauai and Hawaii, the Big Island the chance to win a desirable prize of 100,000 Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) Starpoints® by sharing unique interpretations of “aloha” via the hotel group’s social media platforms.
From now to September 15, 2014, Starwood Hawaii invites people to “Define Aloha” by sharing photographs using the hashtag #DefineAloha.
To enter, users are encouraged to post pictures that “Define Aloha” via the Facebook app on Starwood Hawaii’s Facebook page.
One entry per person per day on each social media platform is allowed, although users can enter daily for extra chances to win. One overall winner will be selected at the end of the contest period.
In Hawaiian language, ʻaloha’ means affection, peace and compassion. Aloha, however, is commonly used when greeting or parting from someone. The ʻaloha spirit’ is a well-known reference to the attitude of friendly acceptance for which the Hawaiian Islands are famous.
“Aloha can mean different things to different people and we invite Hawaii enthusiasts from around the world to share their unique interpretations,” said Cheryl Williams, regional director of sales & marketing, Starwood Hawaii & French Polynesia. “We are looking for inspiring photographs that show there truly is no better place to be than in Hawaii.”
The winner can redeem the 100,000 Starpoints® at any one of the 11 Starwood Hawaii resorts of their choice including Sheraton, Westin, St. Regis and Luxury Collection hotels and resorts. They may opt for a rejuvenating adventure that includes the nighttime manta ray snorkel at Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay; the perfect family vacation at The Westin Maui Resort & Spa, a peaceful escape to St. Regis Princeville on Kauai overlooking the famed Hanalei Bay; or a beach, shopping and nightlife getaway to Waikiki staying at either The Royal Hawaiian, A Luxury Collection Resort; Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa; Sheraton Waikiki; or Sheraton Princess Kaiulani. Depending on the length of stay, guests can also redeem Starpoints on dining, spa and other resort activities.
The Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) program is the most rewarding hotel loyalty program of its kind. It’s free to sign up and guests can earn points quickly that can be redeemed at over 1,100 hotels and resorts in more than 100 countries.
