Beach Hotel & Resort Branded a Hilton
LIHUE, Hawaii - Located on 25 lushly landscaped acres of Kauai's "Coconut Coast," the Kauai Beach Hotel & Resort officially became the Hilton Kauai Beach Resort today after the completion of an $18 million renovation. The resort features 350 plush condominium hotel units, cascading waterfalls and dramatic rockscapes surrounding four swimming pools, an on-site spa, upscale dining options and complete meeting facilities. Just five minutes from Lihue Airport, the Hilton Kauai Beach Resort is the ideal central starting point for adventures around the island, including Kauai's sun-drenched white sand beaches and renowned golf courses, the spectacular Waimea Canyon to the west, shopping and art galleries in charming Koloa and Hanapepe to the south, and the magnificent, rugged Na Pali coast on the north shore of the island.

The Hilton Kauai Beach Resort is operated by Anekona Management LLC under a franchise license agreement with Hilton Inns, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Hilton Hotels Corporation. The property is managed by Anekona Management.

"Hilton believes that travel should be relaxing and invigorating, and few places in the world are better suited to achieving these aims than the island of Kauai, with its laid-back charm, gracious hospitality, and untouched natural beauty," said Jeff Diskin, senior vice president of Hilton Brand Management. "As the newest addition to the collection of Hilton resorts in Hawaii, the Hilton Kauai Beach Resort will extend the Hilton experience on the islands with indulgent amenities, a hospitable service culture and local flair."

The five-story property has undergone an extensive renovation of its guestrooms, lobby, dining facilities and meeting space. The bright, plantation-style decor creates an open and airy atmosphere while reflecting Kauai's agricultural heritage. The resort's pool complex features three pools and two whirlpool spas surrounded by tropical landscaping, lush grottoes and numerous waterfalls, including a 12-foot cascade into the main pool. A fourth beachfront sand-bottom pool features a 90-foot flume and lava tube waterslide. A nightly sunset cocktail(a) hour for hotel guests is followed by a traditional torch-lighting ceremony and Polynesian dance show. A complimentary hotel shuttle transfers guests to and from the airport and nearby shopping and golf courses. For fitness and rejuvenation, guests can enjoy the Alolani Spa and Fitness Center.
