New Member Spotlight
Pictured above are Four Seasons Resort Hualalai General Manager Charlie Parker and views from the Hawai'i Island resort.
I have oft said that the beauty of HLTA truly lies in the depth and breadth of our association. Our membership is incredibly diverse, boasting entities not only from the lodging sector of our industry but also restaurants, retail, small business, air and ground transportation, and attractions. As we continue to make a push to grow our membership roster, I wanted to take a moment to highlight a handful of our newest members.
Four Seasons Resort Hualalai
We are ecstatic to welcome this iconic Hawai'i Island resort to our ranks- especially being that the property is now under the leadership of general manager Charlie Parker, a longtime and active member of HLTA during his previous tenure at the Four Seasons Resort O'ahu at Ko Olina.

Safe Travels Clarification
Since the lifting of interisland travel restrictions, there have been reports of visitors not getting cleared upon arrival in Hawai'i because they have entered an interisland trip into the Safe Travels platform, not realizing that this is no longer needed. These visitors are then showing their QR code for the interisland trip to car rental agencies, for example, which inaccurately reads "Not Screened", leading to the visitor being turned away.
As a reminder, here are the current regulations for incoming travelers:
If you have any questions or concerns about this clarification, please do not hesitate to contact our offices at any time.
