THE MOST ROMANTIC PLACE ON EARTH DECLARES A MONTH FOR LOVE; SEPTEMBER 'ROMANCE MONTH' 1993 AT KONA VILLAGE RESORT

    KA'UPULEHU, Hawaii, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Kona Village Resort, the 82-acre Polynesian paradise, sets a spell of love during the month of September 1993 when Hawaiian cupids herald "aloha a nui loa" (welcome and much love).  With no telephones, no televisions and no radios to disturb the peace and the kids back in school, guests can celebrate each other Sept. 7 - 30, 1993 as Kona Village Resort encourages a return to romance with a myriad of activities to satisfy the senses, body and mind.
    It's only fitting that a resort built by lovers more than 25 years ago is one of the most romantic spots on earth.  Ever since founders Johnno and Helen Jackson created this paradise, it's been a natural haven for couples -- all year-round.  The seclusion of 125 individual thatched-roof "hales" (cottages) nestled around tranquil lagoons, rustling palms and black- and white-sand beaches encourages even the most stoic of couples to relax and recapture their own special tenderness.  For absolute privacy, the pair can place a painted coconut outside their door: the resort's universal symbol for "Do Not Disturb."
    Kona Village Resort's Full American Plan ensures that a Romance Month getaway -- whether for a weekend or several weeks -- will be carefree, since all meals are included plus tennis, cultural activities, most beach activities and watersports and roundtrip airport transfers. Rates per "hale" in September are $375 - $565 per night -- double occupancy, of course!  For those who would like to create their own imperial fantasy of Hawaiian kings and queens, a limited number of royal "hales" are available at $650 per night.
    A September Celebration Package will certainly help to fan the flames of affection.  Guests are welcomed with a fresh flower lei and rum punch upon arrival; in the "hale," chilled champagne and two specially designed pareaus are waiting.  All meals and round-trip airport transfers are included at $750 per person for the five-day/four- night plan and $1,312.50 per person for the eight-day/seven-night plan, based on double occupancy.
    What makes Romance Month so special?  It's up to each couple.  Some prefer an intimate feast of finger-foods -- delivered right to their "hale" by "Kona Service" -- watching the brilliant sunsets while feeding each other tropical fruits, brie with macadamia nut lavosh, chilled jumbo shrimp or sashimi.  Other may find a "love match" on Kona Village Resort's four tennis courts.  Waterbabies can share the mysteries of the sea as they swim, dive or snorkel together.  Still others will schedule therapeutic body massages a deux.
    What makes Romance Month distinctive, however, are the simplest pleasures, like a stroll hand-in-hand on the beach, a "fragrance walk" to discover the profusion of indigenous flora, an oceanside picnic or a moonlight adventure, counting the stars and identifying the constellations.
    Kona Village Resort features two freshwater swimming pools, a whirlpool, 15 acres of petroglyphs, nightly entertainment and outstanding cuisine hallmarked by a variety of cultural influences and its blend of fresh island ingredients and species.  For recreation, guests have use of outrigger canoes, sunfish sailboats, Boogie boards, snorkeling gear and much more at no additional charge on the Full American Plan.  A highlight of any visit to Kona Village Resort is the Friday night Luau, where guests can watch the traditional preparation of the kalua pig during the imu ceremony, feast on course after course of Polynesian specialties and enjoy an authentic pageant of island songs, chants and dancing.
