The Hawaii Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards are a result of an extensive reader survey conducted by the magazine. Thousands of mainland US, Hawai‘i and international readers participated in the 98-category survey, rating everything from the best Hawaiian hotels and resorts, bed-and-breakfasts and inns, beaches and activities, to the best places to eat, scenic road trips, fashion designers and coastlines in Hawaii. Hawaii Magazine tallied the picks of more than 100,000 surveys to arrive at the final award-winner list.

The complete list of awards is available in Hawaii Magazine’s April 2016 issue
