What Do Travelers Want?

In an article from the Wall Street Journal (MarketWatch by Anya Martin), 7 items were listed as “wants” by business and pleasure travelers.   All 7 items are considered to be hot health trends, and included areas of exercise, nutrition, and environmentally sound practices and amenities.

While we do not have a nutritionist or wellness coach on call, we do offer several items that relate to this list:

1.  Exercise — Who needs a gym when you are on Kaua’i with its myriad of outdoor activities?  Our units are mere steps from the beach and the new Kaua’i bike path so you can run, jog, stroll, bike, swim, snorkel, or simply lie in the sun and soak up vitamin D! Close by, you can find golf, zip lines, kayaking, hiking, and lots of other activities.

2.  Smoke-free rooms — Islander on the Beach is a nonsmoking hotel and the  sheets, pillows, blankets, walls, rugs,  etc  in our units are almost all new as of June 2011 and nothing in our condos has ever been exposed to smoke fumes.

3.  Paraben-free amenities — We have you covered here, too.  We supply our guests with starter amounts of organic shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, hand soap, and face soap, all packaged in an environmentally friendly that fits the Garden Island.

4.  Organically locally produced food — Kaua’i is blessed with a farmers’ market every day somewhere on island.  You will also see roadside vendors selling ahi, fruits, coconuts, and other items.  We have free barbeque grills by the pool and well-stocked kitchenettes in our condos to help you eat healthy while visiting us.  On this blog, we try to alert visitors to great restaurants and shops where they can have healthy meals of local produce.  Of course, you are on vacation and that double-dipped Lappert’s macadamia nut ice cream cone 0r large shave ice from the truck by Hanalei is a must-have…..

So, come stay with us and get what travelers are requesting most from big hotels, but with the small Kaua’i aloha spirit and excellent location on island. You can find us and all our Kauai vacation rentals  at: or 1 855 HULA NOW
