Starwood Increasing StarOptions for Hawaii Resorts
September 9th 2015 Posted by: SellMyTimeshareNow SMTN Category: For Owners, Industry News

Starwood Vacation Network has announced that StarOptions values will increase for owners of Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas and The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas North oceanfront units starting in the 2017 Use Year.

With the opening of Starwood’s newest Hawaiian resort—The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas—the brand has reevaluated the demand for its neighboring Starwood properties in Maui, making the decision to boost StarOption values.

New StarOptions values for 2017 will be:

  • 2-bedroom: 176,700
  • 1-bedroom: 95,700
  • Studio: 81,000

What Are StarOptions?

StarOptions is Starwood’s points-based program used for internal exchange. Every resort within the Starwood Vacation Network is assigned a StarOptions value. This value is determined by the popularity of the resort location, demand of the home resort, size of unit, desirability of vacation week, etc.

When you purchase a timeshare at a Starwood resort, you can convert your timeshare week into an allotted amount of StarOption points based on this value system. You can then use these points to exchange for a vacation at another luxury Starwood resort.

What Does This Mean For Current Owners?

Thanks to greater StarOptions values, owners of Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas and The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas North can enjoy the flexibility of longer stays and a larger selection of Starwood hotels and resorts to retreat to across the globe.

*NOTE: If you’re looking to sell your Starwood timeshare, the boost of Starwood points do NOT transfer on the resale market. This means that when ownership is transferred to a new buyer on the secondary market, the increase in StarOptions will not be given to the new owner.
