POOL RENOVATIONS:  Kauai Shores, an Aqua Hotel will renovate one of its pools beginning April 3, 2017.  Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the project is expected to be completed by May 17, 2017.  The project will include re-tiling the pool and sundeck and installing a new jet spa.  Work will be limited to Mon-Fri from 9am to 5pm. Guest will still be able to use the property’s second pool (located in the back courtyard) and beach front lawn during the renovation. While we are working to improve our facilities, your clients may hear some noise during the day. Our hope is that they will be out and about enjoying our island offerings and miss the  work completely.
