As reported by StarBulletin.com timeshare occupancy in Hawaii grew the first six months of 2009, even though the challenges in the economy showed an overall decline in visitors to the state. The Hawaii Tourism Authority reported that the number of visitors who spent their entire vacation in a timeshare was up by 5.8 percent over the previous year.

“The data proves that even in difficult times, timeshare owners and guests are committed to Hawaii and will come year in and year out,” said Daniel Dinell, Vice President of Hilton Grand Vacation Club.

Last month over 67,000 visitors indicated that they planned to spend part of their vacation in a timeshare for their next vacation. This number represents a 5.1 percent increase in timeshare usage.

The most dramatic increase in timeshare usage was seen by Japanese visitors. Last month, Japanese visitors who planned to spend part of their vacation in a timeshare increased by 56.8 percent over the same time last year.
