Honolulu, Hawaii- November 12, 2012- Aqua Hotels & Resorts has launched a new Lifestyle Specialist program that helps travel agents learn more about its collection of hotels and rewards agents for their loyalty.

“As an Aqua Lifestyle Specialist, travel agents are better equipped to help their clients choose a property that is right for them,” said Robin Harlow, senior director of sales for Aqua. “The result is more satisfied travelers, which ultimately results in more referrals and repeat business for both the travel agent and Aqua. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
Aqua’s Lifestyle Specialist program is open to all travel agents and enrollment is complimentary. Participating travel agents visit Aqua’s website to learn about each hotel, as well as insider’s tips to visiting Hawaii. Through the program, travel agents are rewarded with one complimentary room night for every 25 materialized room nights booked at a single hotel. (Complimentary night is awarded at the hotel with materialized bookings.)
