Kapaa, Kauai Hawaii (PRWEB) December 08, 2013
Conde Nast Traveler recently announced the results of its annual Reader’s Choice Awards survey, which asked travelers to rate the world’s best hotels, islands, airlines, and cruise lines. The competition for “Best Island in the World” was particularly fierce; however, Kauai ranked close to the top, taking the number two spot just after Maui.
Paul Juma, who owns and operates Fern Grotto Inn, a collection of vacation rental cottages in Kapaa, Kauai, was not surprised by Kauai’s stellar performance. “We draw guests from all over the world, and even our well-traveled guests consider Kauai to be among the top destinations they've visited,” says Juma, “In fact, first-time visitors always comment on how the island’s natural beauty far surpasses their expectations.”
The survey, which asked readers to rate their favorite islands on the basis of scenery, friendliness, atmosphere, and restaurants, actually showed that Kauai outranked Maui in the first three categories, falling behind only in the dining category.
“Guests don’t come to Kauai for the food,” comments Juma. “But if you know where to look, there are actually some pretty incredible local eateries on the island.” Juma notes that he routinely helps guests at Fern Grotto Inn with restaurant and activity recommendations. His insider’s knowledge is part of what draws travelers to his rentals.
In addition to its high rating for scenery and atmosphere, Kauai scored 93.2 out of 100 for “friendliness,” a number that reflects the island’s strong tourist industry. “You can travel the world, and you won’t find kinder or more hospitable locals,” boasts Juma.
Fern Grotto Inn, based in Kapaa, Hawaii, has six vacation rental cottages on the east side of Kauai. Fern Grotto Inn prides itself on providing luxury accommodations for guests who want an authentic Kauai experience.
