New luxury accommodations open to guests on Kauai
Visitors to the Garden Isle have a new luxury accommodation option on the South Shore. The Lodge at Kukuiula are new island-style abodes that opened in July inside the residential Club at Kukuiula on Kauai. .
Kukuiula opened in 2011 as an upscale residential community, and now sports 15 two or three bedroom Club Cottages, as well as six four-bedroom Club Villas available for nightly rental with no minimum night stay. All were designed in the traditional Kauai plantation-style and feature modern Island-style interiors.
The cottages opened in July, while the villas just opened last month.
Each Club Cottage overlooks the community’s gardens or the mountains and can sleep up to six people. They feature King Beds in all rooms, full kitchen with granite counter tops, made-in-Kauai artwork, a laundry room and outdoor amenities such as a lava-rock shower, fire pit, grill and tiki torches.
The expansive Club Villas—2,700-square-foot four bedroom, four-and-a-half bath homes—can comfortably sleep eight. They include all of the same perks of the Club Cottage class, but overlook the golf course and the ocean, with additional outdoor space including a large covered lanai (porch) with dining and seating areas and a private plunge pool.
The Lodge at Kukuiula accommodations include access to its fitness center, 18,000 square foot spa, clubhouse dining and meeting space, golf course, full-service concierge and the on-site farm serving farm-to-table dinners.
The property plans to open a third accommodation class—Club Bungalows—with one bedroom and two-story options early next year.
Property representatives note that the accommodations are ideal for families or multiple couples traveling together. Prices are from $1,000 to $1,800 per night with no minimum stay.
