About ActivityRez

ActivityRez began in 2000 as an offshoot of a web design and application development company started by our founder, CEO Lubuw Falanruw. By working with some of the most successful online travel activity/tour booking sites in Hawaii we learned a lot about the needs of the industry. This led to Hawaii’s first Activity Vendors Extranet in 2002 which featured industry wide content management, “Virtual Blocks”, and real-time e-Vouchers.

Since those early days our team has grown significantly, so fast in fact, we’ve been recognized as the fastest growing private company in Hawaii and one of the fastest growing private companies in the United States. Though we’ve grown in size we continue to operate in the same city that gave us our start, Honolulu, the Mecca of the activity industry.
