Davidson Hotels & Resorts Unveils Property-Wide Renovation of Sheraton Kaua’i Coconut Beach Resort

USA, Kaua'i, Hawaii. January 01, 2020

Sheraton Kaua'i Coconut Beach Resort makes its debut on the Hawaiian island of Kaua'i following a property-wide transformation, unveiling 314 redesigned guest rooms, a brand-new arrival experience, oceanfront bar and restaurants, fully reinvented public spaces, a reenergized pool scene, and fresh programming. Centrally located on Kaua'i's East Side, the newly flagged resort offers unrivaled access for exploring the Garden Island from the spectacular scenery of the North Shore to the sunny beaches of the South Shore.

"The new Sheraton Kaua'i Coconut Beach Resort celebrates the breathtaking beauty of our Garden Island paradise, rich culture and history, and strong sense of community," said 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."

An idyllic location for island adventure, Sheraton Kaua'i Coconut Beach Resort is near Kapa'a-based activities and sights such as the Wailuā River popular for kayaking and the Sleeping Giant trailhead with panoramic views of Kaua'i's eastern shore. The resort is an equidistant one-hour drive to the island's northern and southern coasts providing opportunities for daytrips to some of the most coveted sights including Waimea Canyon State Park and the Nā Pali coastline.

Conceptualized by world-renowned design firm Gensler, the resort's design is a modern interpretation of Kaua'i's most exalted sights with a color palette inspired by the island's endless flora from Mount Wai'ale'ale and the majestic Wailuā River, set against a crisp background reminiscent of the plantations from the Royal Coconut Coast. Guest rooms open to private lanais to soak in the Hawaiian sun, and cinnamon wood create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Anchoring the resort is a revamped pool area where new food and beverage concepts and zero edge pool overlook the sweeping vistas of the sea surrounding the tropical island. Casual, sociable and with an understated surf-vibe setting, 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 emphasizes the island's bounty with dishes such as the Big Kahuna burger, tuna poke and pork bau buns paired with a selection of craft cocktails, mocktails and low ABV drinks. For a refined and elevated dining experience, take a seat at Moamoa Hawaiian Fish House, which partners with local farmers and fishmongers to bring the freshest seasonal ingredients daily to the tables of travelers and locals. Expect an evolving Pacific Rim-inspired menu of dishes such as kampachi crudo, Kona clams, whole fried fish and table side poke.

A spectacular start to the day begins with a buffet breakfast of Portuguese sausage, char siu pork, kimchee fried rice and fresh fruit at Daybreak Restaurant. Complementing the buffet is a welcoming coffee bar for pour over and cold brew coffee, espresso, and malasadas. The courtyard is where guests can participate in twice-weekly luaus celebrating Hawaiian and Polynesian culture among other experiences.

For groups and weddings, Sheraton Kaua'i Coconut Beach Resort provides nearly 8,000 square feet of meeting and event space and four event rooms, set against an ocean backdrop for an authentic atmosphere.

Human Resources: Confronting a Labor Shortage

With the unemployment rate at its lowest level in decades (3.7%), what has always been a perennial problem for human resource professionals - labor shortage - is now reaching acute levels of concern. It is getting harder to find and recruit qualified applicants. Even finding candidates with the skills to succeed in entry-level positions has become an issue. In addition, employee turnover rates remain extremely high in the hotel industry. As a result of these problems, hotel HR managers are having to rethink their recruitment strategies in order to hire the right talent for the right job. First, hotels have been forced to raise their wages and offer other appealing perks, as a way to attract qualified candidates. Secondly, HR managers are reassessing their interviewing techniques, focusing less on the answers they receive to questions and more on observable behavior. Part of this process includes role-playing during the interview, so that the recruiter can gauge how a candidate works through specific problems and interacts with other team members. Additionally, some HR managers are also creating internal talent pools as a way to address labor shortages. Instead of utilizing department resources to find new hires with specific skills for needed positions, hotels are cultivating talent pools internally and preparing their employees to assume leadership roles whenever the time comes. They are also placing greater emphasis on a company culture that is more performance-based, as a way to curb employee turnover, increase employee satisfaction, and assure higher levels of customer service. Finally, recognizing the importance of employee retention as a way to lessen the impact of a tight labor market, some HR managers are instituting generous reward programs in order to retain their top performers. The March Hotel Business Review will explore what some HR professionals are doing to address these and other issues in their departments.
