OUTRIGGER Kāʻanapali Beach Resort Nominated as Best Resort for Cultural Immersion

For nearly two decades, TravelAge West’s WAVE Awards gala has become a beloved travel industry tradition — but not a static one, as the awards list regularly evolves to keep up with the times and trends, and for 2024, two new awards recognize resorts that focus on local culture in Mexico and Hawai‘i.

“At OUTRIGGER Resorts & Hotels, we’ve seen a significant shift toward experiential travel,” said Edwin Torres, general manager of OUTRIGGER Kā‘anapali Beach Resort, one of the Editor’s Pick properties nominated for Best Resort for Cultural Immersion, Hawai‘i. “Hawai‘i’s rich cultural heritage is a living, breathing part of its identity, making cultural exposure an essential part of the Hawai‘i experience.
