Hotels on Kaua‘i that are not apart of the county’s enhanced movement quarantine aka “resort bubble” are gearing up for April 5, when the county returns to the state’s Safe Travels Program. Sheraton Kaua‘i Coconut Beach Resort located in Kapaa are excited to see more visitors and residents Kaua‘i safe. They are working on adding a rapid covid test as a service for all the guests. This will be providing more added protection and making sure all of the staff and guest are safe while enjoying their vacation. The rapid test takes about 10 minutes to get the result and it has about a 95% effective rate. On the North Shore, The Cliffs at Princeville has 202 individual condos, each with individual open-air entrances-no elevators, enclosed hallways, which makes it a more natural set up to abide by COVID protocols. They also offer a grocery delivery service. The Cliffs has had about 800 guests go through the bubble program without incident plus no one left the property and no one turned positive on the second test. They hope that most of the guests with take the incentivized second test with the new program on April 5th and they have arranged for guests to take it at the Makana Clinic here in Princeville. Both hotels and condos say they are not at full capacity and welcome Kaua‘i residents with kama‘aina discounts that can be found on their websites or over the phone.
