Q: When can I book my reservations?
A: Owners are able to book 24 months in advance by email, fax or
regular mail. For instance, if an Owner would like to book a week in October 2016 he/she can send an email, fax or regular mail piece received by us on midnight October 1st, 2014.
Q: Why do we have to submit our reservation request in writing
(mail, fax or e-mail.)?
A: This alleviates any concerns of verbal miscommunication about
the dates you are requesting and keeps our phone lines open.
Q: What are Mahalo weeks?
A: It is inventory the Association has seized from the delinquent
owners. On January 2nd of each year, the Association has the right to seize all weeks of any owner who has not paid the current year’s maintenance fee. The Resort then rents the usage for the year to make up for the lost fees. These are made available to owners exclusively from January 2nd to January 20th at a cost of the maintenance fee of the unit type plus general excise tax. These weeks may be used at the Resort or banked with an exchange company of your choice. On January 21st, these weeks will be available to the general public at a 25% increased cost. These have always been popular for owners, making it necessary to have a drawing done. Should you be interested in obtaining an additional week, please contact our Reservations Department to be placed in the drawing.
Q: Does LBR have an internal exchange system on property?
A: No, you must go through one of the exchange companies (Hawaii
Time Share Exchange Company, Trading Places International, RCI, Interval International or San Francisco Exchange Company).
Q: How do we bank our bonus weeks?
A: Call the phone number on the back of the bonus week certificate.
