Hilton Kauai Beach Resort

Aqua Hotels and Resorts has been named to manage the Hilton Kauai Beach Resort. The addition of the Hilton increases Aqua’s portfolio to 16 hotels on four Hawaiian Islands: 13 on Oahu, one on Maui, one on Molokai and one on Kauai.

Located five minutes north of the Lihue Airport and ten minutes from the town of Lihue, the five-story oceanfront hotel spreads out over 25 acres and lays claim to a long white sand beach.

The Hilton Kauai Beach Resort is a non-smoking hotel with 350 guest rooms, including oceanfront suites and executive accommodations. Amenities include complimentary shuttle service to/from the airport and nearby golf courses, three swimming pools, two whirlpool spas and a 75-foot flume and waterslide. The hotel features meeting facilities, a spa and salon, fitness center and business center. Each room comes with wireless high-speed Internet access, a refrigerator, coffeemaker and safe. Guests are invited to a nightly torchlighting ceremony, and the property regularly presents a production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical, South Pacific.

Dining options at the Hilton Kauai include the Naupaka Terrace, an open-air restaurant overlooking fishponds, pools and waterfalls. The Driftwood Sandbar and Grille serves casual poolside lunch and beverages, while Shutter's Lounge provides appetizers and light dinners as well as live entertainment nightly.

“It’s exciting to be selected to manage the Hilton Kauai Beach Resort,” said Aqua Hotels and Resorts president Ben Rafter. “The addition of this spectacular resort is an excellent complement to Aqua’s growing portfolio of Waikiki and neighbor island resorts.”
