Redefining Resort; Intimate Beachfront Creates a Well Deserved Buzz

KAPAA, HI--(Marketwire - Aug 28, 2012) - This summer guests visiting the Courtyard Kauai at Coconut Beach were in for an added delight. Not only has the hotel recently gone through a $13 million transformation, but it also aligned itself to be the premier resort on Kauai's eastside.

In the majestic splendor of the Garden Isle visitors and tourists are reminded of a simpler time. It is their moment to breathe in the warm, salty air of the awe-inspiring Pacific, to marvel at the dense tropical forest while hiking and to truly savor the Aloha spirit of the Hawaiian culture. The Courtyard Kauai at Coconut Beach embodies this by offering all the amenities and convenience of a resort in an intimate, beachfront setting.

"Guests don't have to drive to get to their room or get lost locating the day spa, concierge or fitness center. They don't have to worry about whether they will find a spot by the pool or beach. And they surely won't get confused about finding a restaurant that offers fantastic island cuisine," remarks General Manager, Bently Kriewald.

In fact, the Courtyard Kauai Resort offers two delectable restaurants focused on producing fresh, locally sourced ingredients, as well as The Market, a 24-hour solution for meals on the go. However, that isn't enough, states Damon Lockrem, Director of Sales and Marketing, "We may be small, but that means we can concentrate on the details. We want to exceed guest expectations, so we are now preparing meals for guests in our daypack." The ultimate in convenience, the daypack is a Dakine backpack with cooler pouch, filled with food and beverages preordered by guests on the move.

At a recent resort orientation we met Terry Collura, a guest, who had this to say, "We came to Kauai to experience paradise, and found it. Our kids will be signing up for the shell making and have already begged us to rent the beach toys at the front desk. I'm looking forward to a day at the spa along with the wine tasting. My husband is excited to reserve one of the daypacks so we can hike Sleeping Giant!"

"A resort doesn't have to be massive, ostentatious or overpriced," states Kriewald. "At the Courtyard Kauai Resort we are refocusing the resort experience by ensuring the essence of paradise is captured while surpassing guest expectations. We do this all within a value driven price point." This essence is showcased in the open-air layout, contemporary Polynesian décor, sweeping ocean views, beckoning pool and courtyard, and of course, the resort's right on the beach location. While the needs of guests are fulfilled in many ways such as: easy access to on-site cultural activities; approachable and friendly staff; accommodating and knowledgeable concierge service; casual on-site Kauai dining; valet or self-parking; beach and pool rentals; weekly entertainment including Hawaiian jazz and hula shows and a Game/Entertainment Room. As an added bonus, the property is a Courtyard by Marriott, which offers spacious rooms, complimentary WiFi, the eLounge and state of the art fitness center.

It seems the Courtyard Kauai Resort is proving that great things do indeed come in small packages.
