Hawaii Home- Elite Traveler



Kauai’s first private residential community, the 1,010-acre Kukui`ula, celebrated its grand opening this June, offering luxury plantation-style homes and custom home sites on the verdant island’s southern coast.  Choose from three neighborhoods:

The Makai, bordering lush golf course greens; the Mauka, mountainside living amid landscaped gardens; and the Club Cottages, a cluster of 15 charming 2,200-square-foot abodes located adjacent to the private $100 million Plantation House.  Starting in December 2011, guest cottages will also be available.  The central clubhouse features an inviting great room, tricked out games room, eateries focused on fresh seasonal cuisine and a multilevel outdoor pool/beach area.  Golfers enjoy the club’s private 18-hole course, designed by British Open winner Tom Weiskopf to take full advantage of stunning ocean views, while the on-site 20,000-square-foot Spa at Kukui`ula offers a haven for serenity seekers.  Travel north to Kukui`ula’s own farm, where you can picnic, hike, bike and pick fresh produce and flowers, or canoe and catch-and-release in the nearby 20-acre lake (home sites: $1 million; cottages: from $2.2 million; nightly rate: $1,250).
