Following a multimillion-dollar transformation, Sheraton Kauai Coconut Beach Resort makes its debut featuring 314 redesigned guest rooms, oceanfront bar and restaurants, a brand-new arrival experience and much more.

“The new Sheraton Kauai Coconut Beach Resort celebrates the breathtaking beauty of our Garden Island paradise, rich culture and history, and strong sense of community,” says General Manager Shaun Borges. “We are proud to usher in a new level of premium hospitality in Kaua’i with genuine aloha spirit, which welcomes guests and our valued local residents to our oceanfront resort.”

The resort’s central location on Kauai’s East Side makes it easy for guests to explore the scenic Sleeping Giant trailhead or maybe even kayak the Wailuā River. Located only an hour from both the northern and southern coasts, groups can daytrip to coveted spots like Waimea Canyon State Park and the Nā Pali coastline.

Back at the resort, guests are immersed in a modern island atmosphere spearheaded by Gensler design firm. A fresh color palette is drawn from the crashing Kauai waves and endless flora of Mount Wai’ale’ale and the Wailuā River. Guest rooms are warm and welcoming with rich cinnamon woodwork and relaxing private lanai space.

A zero-edge pool and new food and beverage concepts complete the revitalized pool area. The Crooked Surf pool bar takes its name from Makaiwa, the curved surf that breaks on the shores of Kapa’a. The sophisticated tiki bar pairs craft cocktails and mocktails with dishes like the Big Kahuna burger, tuna poke and pork bau buns. The resort’s Moamoa Hawaiian Fish House provides an elevated dining experience incorporating local ingredients from the island’s fishmongers and farmers. The Pacific Rim-inspired menu features kampachi crudo, Kona clams and tableside poke, to name a few. Mornings are taken care of at the Daybreak Restaurant with an expansive buffet breakfast of Portuguese sausage, char siu pork, kimchee fried rice and fresh fruit.

Sheraton Kauai Coconut Beach Resort offers nearly 8,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including four event rooms set against a breathtaking ocean backdrop.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:

 

In light of COVID-19, a survey commissioned by the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) discovered that 44 percent of Americans are planning leisure trips or overnight travel before the end of 2020.
