Book a Stay with Aston Hotels & Resorts and Help Reforest Hawaii

Celebrate Earth Day with Aston Hotels & Resorts on Tuesday, April 22, 2014. Book a stay at any of Aston’s 27 hotels, resorts, villas and cottages in Hawaii, California, Nevada and Florida on Earth Day, and we’ll make a donation to the Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative on the Island of Hawaii. It’s just one way that Aston is supporting travel practices that leave a lighter footprint on the environment.

Over the past five years, sustainable forestry company Hawaiian Legacy Hardwoods has planted more than 200,000 endemic koa trees along with other endangered Hawaiian species across more than 500 acres above the historic Umikoa Village on the slopes of Mauna Kea. This effort, under its nonprofit Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative, is returning pastureland to the spectacular native forest it once was. Donations will support the planting of these trees – many found nowhere else on Earth – making each stay booked on Earth Day a valuable contribution to the biodiversity of Hawaii’s unique ecosystem, providing cleaner air and water, mitigating global warming, and enhancing a habitat for native birds.

Guests staying at any of Aston’s three Hawaii Island destinations – Aston Kona by the Sea, Aston Shores at Waikoloa, and Aston Waikoloa Colony Villas – have a unique opportunity to “Leave a Legacy with Aston” as part of a new package offer. Experience Hawaiian Legacy Tours in a first-of-its kind opportunity that allows guests to plant their own Koa Legacy Tree and tour this historic forest – the only Legacy Forest of its kind in the world. Guests can sponsor Legacy Trees to celebrate an event, honor an individual or memorialize a loved one, as well as offset their carbon footprint. “Leave a Legacy with Aston” packages start at $212 per night based on a 4-night stay with double occupancy and includes two adult tickets for The Planters Tour.
