KAPA'A, HI--(Marketwire - Oct 1, 2012) - Located along the sandy beaches of the Royal Coconut Coast, aptly named for Hawaiian royalty who once called the location home, the Courtyard Kauai Resort is centrally positioned in Kapa'a, HI. For guests this quite literally means they are in the heart of paradise.
A mere fifteen minutes from the Lihue Airport, guests at the Courtyard Kauai Resort can rest assured their time in paradise will begin sooner and allow them to linger longer. Only a short stroll from shopping, entertainment, adventure and dining allows the freedom from daily driving and parking. However, when the time arises guests are centrally positioned to easily navigate all of the Kauai's natural wonder.
"Think of us as a launchpad for adventure," states Director of Sales, Damon Lockrem. "We are the only resort on the island where guests can spend a day on either the West shore (Hanapepe), North shore (Hanalei) or South shore (Poipu) without having to leave before 8am. It makes for a more relaxing vacation."
