Hawaiian Hotels and Resorts, a hotel management company and member of Hogan Hospitality Group, entered into a new management contract with the 200-room Kauai Shores Hotel in Kapaa, Hawaii. HHR will retain the property’s existing employees, including its leadership team.
“Kauai Shores is one of the premier hotels on Kauai’s famed Royal Coconut Coast and we couldn’t be more honored and excited to be awarded the management contract for the property,” Gary Hogan, CEO of Hawaiian Hotels and Resorts, said in a statement. “The combination of Kauai Shores and HHR is a great partnership. Our long history in Hawaii and our experience managing a portfolio of hotels and resorts on Maui and Island of Hawaii will allow us to hit the ground running at Kauai Shores. We expect a seamless transition as we focus all our energy on making Kauai Shores a preferred destination for visitors from all over the world.”
The beachfront property is located 2 miles from historic Kapaa town and includes newly renovated guestrooms, modern décor, a range of amenities, WiFi, complimentary yoga classes and a business center. Kauai Shores’ signature restaurant, LAVA LAVA Beach Club, offers a laid back, toes-in-the-sand luxury experience with island cuisine and libations. The property’s two swimming pools, beachfront setting and daily island orientations make it a destination for both couples and families.
“We pride ourselves on delivering innovative, customized hotel management services that promotes transparency and drives value for guests, employees, owners and investors,” Tom Bell, president of Hawaiian Hotels and Resorts, said in a statement. “We’ve built our full-service hospitality management company specifically to meet the needs of independent hotel owners and help them strengthen their own brands.”
