Hōkūala’s working farm, island inspired spa, and diverse dining options set this residential resort community apart.
Many resorts strive to deliver a “farm-to-table” experience, but few, if any, have dedicated the time, resources, or the acreage to growing delicious, organic food that the resort and the community can enjoy than the Farm at Hōkūala does. And the genius of the farm lies in the fact that it’s being planted in what was the second 18-hole golf course that used to be on the property.
It’s headed up by a local farmer who oversees the farm and is working to grow fruit, vegetables, trees, and flowers that native to Kauai. The Farm is designed to provide healthy chunk of the produce served at the restaurants in the resort as well as provide the Spa with the guava, bamboo, and turmeric needed for their traditional (and not-so-traditional) wraps and massages.
Just like every aspect of the resort, The Spa at Hōkūala is inspired by the ancient Polynesian belief in the balance and wisdom of nature, and all spa treatments are designed to weave ancient healing traditions with island botanicals that are grown on the farm to revive, relax, and restore.
In fact, the spa’s “farm-to-treatment” ethos features authentic “healing plants” that the first Polynesians brought to the islands.
Spa guests are also encouraged to take the time they need to truly unwind with their “customized time concept.” These treatments begin with a signature opening (a foot cleansing or a body brushing) to take the guest from the outside time-driven world into the “timeless” world of the spa.
As you’d expect to find at a resort that boasts a large organic farm on the property, dining at Hōkūala is inspired and influenced by the relationship between farmer and their harvest, the rancher and their cattle, and the fisherman and their catch. And since the resort is committed to supporting local farmers and fishermen who share their passion for responsible and sustainable practices, all onsite dining features fresh ingredients sourced from The Farm at Hokuala, and six other local farms and ranches on Kauai.
The main restaurant on the property is Hualani’s where owners and guests alike can enjoy elegant yet relaxed dining. And don’t miss the legendary Hawaiian sunset at The Bar at Hualani’s. It’s a true “Hawaiian Happy Hour” that features seasonal craft cocktails in bespoke glassware, live local music, and the best view on the island.Learn More
