The exclusive $100 million real estate community sets above the Kukui'ula Bay on the South Shore of Kauai near Poipu Beach.
Along with being the first new property to be raised in more than two decades on the island, the Hawaiian resort real estate has great potential to become a coveted destination, one residence at a time. The amenities at the Kukui'ula, which are on parity with top-rated resorts worldwide, were completed in advance to any homes being built on the land. It is an indicator that there is a long-term commitment in place to see this development to fruition.
The future residences will be built on home sites around the plantation-styled architecture of the private clubhouse, spa, and fitness center at the Kukui'ula. There also is a Tom Weiskopf-designed championship golf course and a 25-acre, fish-stocked catch-and-release lake that awaits the residents to the oceanfront community. There are trails for horseback riding, hiking and cycling are plentiful as well as paths for ATV-riding adventures are included throughout the lay of the land. There is even a working organic farm onsite with fresh food and produce that augments the laidback luxury lifestyle most healthfully.
A key feature that sets the upscale property apart is the layout of its outdoor swimming areas. There is a connectivity of several swimming pools, waterways and canals framed by beaches, lagoons, and cascading waterfalls that makes the manmade space a unique water-recreation space.
