Flower Uniquely Kauaʻi

The oldest of the Hawaiian islands, Kauaʻi’s history of settlement dates back more than 1,500 years, when the outrigger canoes of Polynesian settlers first reached its tranquil shores. Today, this storied heritage is proudly woven through the unique culture of the Garden Isle — including right here at Hōkūala.

Connected to the Land

Reverence for the āina, or land, goes to the heart of traditional Hawaiian culture. It’s an ethos we’ve taken to heart here at Hōkūala, reclaiming land from a once-defunct golf course to create a wilderness preserve, fruit orchard, and organic vegetable garden in the heart of our beautiful resort.

Live Aloha

Literally translating to “the breath of life,” aloha has many meanings. It’s a greeting, a farewell, and perhaps most importantly, a sense of love and fellowship to be shared throughout the land.
