Kukui’ula’s Living Garden

In 2018, a “Superfoods Garden” was created at the community’s 10-acre Upcountry Farm, the stunning setting for exquisite private dinners. With 1,000 trees and 80,000+ shrubs planted in the community, Kukui’ula stewards’ Living Garden vision came to fruition.

Kukui’ula Plantation House

Superb farm to table cuisine is featured at the club’s Plantation House, along with its vibrant wine and spirits selection. The ha of Kukui’ula is the Plantation House where families gather, dine, swim, savor sunsets and starry nights. The 20,000 sqft private clubhouse, overlooking Kukui’ula Bay, was designed by Don Ziebell, founder of OZ Architects Inc of Scottsdale, and was given a fresh look by San Francisco-based interior designer, Gino Castano in 2017.

Kukui’ula located in Kauai’s Certified Opportunity Zone

In late 2018 Kukui’ula was included in one of two Kauai Opportunity Zones certified by the Secretary of the U.S. Treasury. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), passed in December 2017, added the Opportunity Zones to the tax code, as well as 26 USC section 1400Z-2 to provide certain incentives for taxpayers to invest capital gains in Opportunity Zone property.

Strong Start for 2019

2019 is off to a strong start for Kukui’ula, with two sales and six transactions in escrow by mid-January. Members are enjoying South Shore Kauai‘s idyllic winter weather, and with the addition of the community’s sailing canoe, adventures abound. As Hawaii’s beloved Israel Kamakawiwo’ole would say: Full Sail!
