Scampering with crabs around a tide pool at sunrise. Jumping through a hundred foot waterfall, swimming alongside a giant turtle.

Counting whales by day and shooting stars by night. This is the promise of Kauai, brought up close and personal at Hokuala.

Kauai. A State of Being.

Connectivity is the essence of the Hawaiian culture – past to present, ocean to land, earth to sky. Nowhere does all this come together so naturally as Hokuala, Kauai.
