People’s Choice for Top Kauai Businesses

The best local businesses on the island of Kauai have been named for 2011. This is the sixth annual People’s Choice ranking by MidWeek Kauai, a city paper.

Over 80 first place winners were honored at an award ceremony at the beautiful Kauai Beach Resort. The evening began with live Hawaiian music performed by Maluhia. Before the awards were given out, we ate delicious dinner featuring fresh tropical fruits, salads, pastas, fish and desserts. I attended the ceremony as a freelance writer for MidWeek Kauai.

We are proud of our super achievers and appreciate their valuable contribution to Kauai. While you are visiting, feel confident in using any of these businesses. After all, you have the “local” word that this is the best in Kauai!
