When it comes to the Sheraton brand, the saying “Maui No Ka Oi”
(Maui is the best) definitely holds true to form. It should come as
no surprise, then, that the Sheraton Maui Resort was selected as
the 2007 winner of Starwood Hotels and Resorts’ Hotel of the Year
award for its Sheraton brand.
Each year, Starwood recognizes one hotel from more than 200
Sheraton properties across North America with this prestigious
award. This is the second time Sheraton Maui Resort has received
The winner of Hotel of the Year must excel in areas such as
guest satisfaction, associate engagement and financial performance.
The staff at Sheraton Maui Resort is dedicated to maintaining high
standards in these areas while creating an inviting and comfortable
environment for its guests. The resort consistently receives high
guest satisfaction index scores among all Starwood brands, as well
as the highest guest satisfaction scores with Starwood Hawaii.
Sheraton Maui Resort general manager Chip Bahouth recognized
both the staff and guests for achieving the universal quality that
makes Sheraton Maui Resort stand above the rest. “(The award is a
result) of the inexhaustible dedication of our ohana (family) plus
the support from loyal travel partners and visitors who continue to
make Sheraton Maui Resort their preferred destination when visiting
Kaanapali,” Bahouth said.
Sheraton Maui Resort has garnered a number of awards in recent
years. In addition to its dual “Hotel of the Year” awards, the

Top 25 Hotels in Hawaii since 2005. The property also has won
recognition in the meetings circuit with the Successful Meetings
