About the Trip
Precoa incentive travel trips are the ultimate reward for the service our agents provide everyday to families in their communities.
This year, that reward is an all-expense-paid trip to the exotic and stunning Hawaiian island of Maui (April 25-30, 2012). During their time on The Magic Isle, the qualifiers and their guests will stay at the luxurious Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa, located along Kaanapali Beach – Maui’s signature beach – just north of West Maui hot spot Lahaina.

Some places are so beautiful that it’s hard to believe they exist in reality and not the imagination. With its idyllic location nestled between world famous Kaanapali Beach and Black Rock, the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa is just such a place – a combination of natural wonders and modern luxuries that must be experienced to be believed.
The sprawling grounds of the resort feature lush pools, outstanding and diverse dining options, and Hawaiian cultural events. The on-site Spa at Black Rock offers world class treatment, relaxation, and rejuvenation.
Perhaps the greatest amenities at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa though are the natural marvels located at the front door of the property.
Kaanapali Beach is renowned as one of America’s finest beaches, offering three miles of pristine golden sand that was once the preferred vacation retreat for the royalty of Maui. Along this stretch you’ll find a stunning snorkeling cove, swaying palm trees, and the dramatic outcropping volcanic rock known as Pu’u Keka’a or Black Rock.
Each evening the Sheraton Maui is the exclusive location for the traditional torch lighting and cliff diving ceremony. As the sun sets, a cliff diver lights torches as he climbs, then dives off Black Rock in a reenactment of the feat by Maui’s revered King Kahekili.
The Sheraton Maui also offers complimentary shuttles, running throughout the day, to the historic port town of Lahaina. Once the capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom in the early 19th century, Lahaina is now a bustling town filled with unique shops, art galleries, restaurants, and nightlife options.
The perfect hotel room can often be what makes your vacation experience truly memorable. It’s where your first and last experience of each day takes place and having the right accommodations can be the key to your vacation success.
Thankfully, the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa boasts some of the island’s most luxurious lodging. From the garden view rooms to the ocean view suites, you’ll find yourself surrounded by first class amenities.
Imagine waking up each morning in a tropical island paradise, putting on a plush cotton robe and sipping fresh brewed Hawaiian coffee on your own private lanai (balcony/patio) as you gaze out at the palm trees swaying under bright blue skies and listen to ocean waves breaking in the distance.
Guests in the Garden View rooms will experience the peaceful scenery of the resort’s tropical gardens or majestic West Maui Mountains and Kaanapali Golf Course. With an upgrade to the Ocean View rooms, guests will gain views of the beautiful Kaanapali shoreline and the resort’s natural lagoon pool. Both rooms feature island-inspired décor, rich wood furnishings, a wide-screen flat panel television, high-speed internet, refrigerator, full bath amenities, and private lanai.
And for the elite guest, the Sheraton Maui’s Junior Suites and Ocean Suites offer breathtaking views and the some of the most spacious rooms available on the property at more than 665 square feet each. All the modern conveniences of home are provided in the midst of an island paradise with separate living and dining areas, including a wet bar, plush sofa and armchair, widescreen plasma television and Bose sound system, along with premium bathroom amenities. Distinguished guests that opt for the premier upgrade to the Ocean Suite gain even more room to relax, including a stunning, 30-foot curved lanai that looks out toward the Pacific Ocean.
