Recapture the spirit of Old Hawai’i

Kukui’ula, on the island of Kaua’i, is like no other place in the world. A thriving sugar cane plantation for decades, it was the summer home of Queen Emma, the wife of King Kamehameha IV. Prince Kuhio, the beloved “Prince of the People,” was born nearby. Now, this magical place is bringing a new generation home.

If you’ve ever dreamed of owning a true getaway for you and those you love, you’ll find it here, on the south shore of Kaua’i in the relaxed, luxurious paradise called Kukui'ula.

At Kukui'ula, serenity and adventure come together.

Plantation House is the hub of the Kukui’ula community. In this gracious space, you can enjoy a meal, have drinks at the bar overlooking the impeccably maintained grounds, play in the game room.

Steps away is the Spa at Kukui’ula, a sanctuary of well-being, with a state-of-the-art gym and a range of yoga, pilates and fitness classes. The Spa also features outdoor wet areas for men and women, a stunning steam house and a lap pool with a 20-foot waterfall. You can also book your tee time at Tom Weiskopf’s 18-hole golf course, named “Best New Private Golf Course” by Golf Magazine.

The resort’s Island Pursuits team opens the door to the fun side of Kaua’i, from hidden surf breaks and mountaintop viewpoints to stand-up paddling, kayak fishing and snorkeling. They’re just as ready to take experienced explorers to new challenges as they are to help kids turtle-watch or ride that first wave.

A truly unique aspect of Kukui’ula is the Upcountry Farm and Lake – where the resort’s chefs harvest fresh produce to serve for dinner at the Plantation House. For a great view of the gorgeous grounds, paddle a canoe or SUP around the lake. Kukui'ula residents are regularly invited to gather at a long table on a hillside overlooking the farm to share al fresco meals with farm-to-table produce and locally-caught fish and specialty meats from local farms.

The Shops at Kukui’ula are home to some of the best-loved restaurants on the island. They range from upscale dining at Roy Yamaguchi’s newest restaurant concept - Eating House 1849, Merriman’s Fish House and Tortilla Republic Grill to casual fare at Bubba Burgers, Dolphin Sushi & Fish Market, Lappert’s Hawaii, Savage Shrimp and more. Rather eat in? Wander through Living Foods Gourmet Market for fresh inspiration. (They also cater and serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.) Don’t forget Uncle’s Shave Ice, voted Best Shaves on Kaua’i. If it’s Wednesday, catch the Kauai Culinary Market from 3:30 to 6 p.m., where South shore chefs cook local specialties as live island music fills the air.

Evenings at Kukui’ula are serene: Sunset cocktails watching the Spouting Horn. An evening dip in the pool. A chat around the firepit overlooking the ocean.

Homes here reflect the island’s graceful, open nature, set in a lush tropical landscape. Homes feature large outdoor living spaces connecting onto green lawns and tropical gardens to take advantage of the idyllic tropical climate.

Luxury homes here range from $1.7M to $12M, lots from $750,000 to $10M. For more information, contact Paul Stukin, Executive Director of Aaroe Destination Resorts, destinationresorts@aaroe.com
