Condé Nast Traveler has announced the results of its 31st annual Readers’ Choice Awards with Kaanapali Beach Hotel in Maui, recognized as the No. 1 “Top Hotel in Hawaii,” moving up from its No. 4 position in the 2017 awards.
“To be recognized among the top hotels in Hawaii is an honor, but to be named number one on a list chosen by readers is truly humbling,” says General Manager Mike White. “Our employees are the heart and soul of our hotel, embodying the spirit of aloha and welcoming each guest into our Ohana. With fresh programming like our inaugural Ola I Ka Pu Hala conference celebrating the art of Hawaiian weaving and our new Waa, a traditional Hawaiian outrigger canoe at the ocean activity center, we want to give our guests reason to come home to Kaanapali Beach Hotel time after time.”
The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry and are commonly known as “the best of the best of travel.” Nearly half a million Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted a record-breaking number of responses rating their travel experiences to provide a full snapshot of where and how we travel today.
Located oceanfront on world-famous Kaanapali Beach on Maui’s west side, Kaanapali Beach Hotel offers 432 rooms, eleven acres of tropical gardens and cultural classes that range from kukui nut bracelet making and complimentary ukulele lessons to Hawaiian language classes and lauhala weaving. Additionally, Hale Huakai, the hotel’s ocean activities center offers adventures for the whole family such as stand-up paddle boarding, snorkeling and conch shell blowing. Known as “Hawaii’s Most Hawaiian Hotel”, Kaanapali Beach Hotel is the ultimate destination for an unforgettable Hawaiian experience.
The 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards are published exclusively on Condé Nast Traveler’s website at www.cntraveler.com/rca and celebrated in the November issue on newsstands nationwide on October 16.
