Kukui’ula debuted The Lodge as a hospitality offering in 2015, bringing newfound luxury to the South Shore of Kaua’i with a collection of luxury Club Cottages, Club Bungalows and Club Villas.
A haven of barefoot luxury on Kaua'i’s sunny South Shore, The Lodge at Kukui'ula pairs private accommodations with exclusive access to the sprawling amenities of The Club at Kukui'ula, including an 18-Hole Tom Weiskopf–designed golf course, the on-site Huaka’i Outfitters shop & adventure guide program, full-service Hi’ilani spa and fitness center, a 10-acre Upcountry farm & lake, two restaurants, saltwater Makai pools, a kids’ club, and more. The Shops at Kukui`ula, located adjacent to community, are home to the islands finest collection of restaurants, shops and galleries in a village like setting. Often called the ultimate playground of the Pacific, Kaua'i offers endless opportunities for an active lifestyle, while The Lodge at Kukui'ula pampers guests with all the luxury services and amenities of a fine hotel within a graceful residential setting.
Destination Residences Hawaii, the resort management brand under Two Roads Hospitality, will operate the exclusive 38 Club Residences at The Lodge at Kukui’ula. Available for nightly reservations, these newly constructed one- to four-bedroom villas feature fully stocked kitchens, elegant living and dining areas and spa-inspired bathrooms with private outdoor showers. All accommodations also boast spacious outdoor living areas with furnished lanais and breathtaking views to capture the true ethos of Kaua’i living.
“With The Lodge heading into its fourth year, there couldn’t be a better time to welcome Two Roads Hospitality on board,” says Richard Albrecht, president of Kukui’ula. “Two Roads is known as a leader in operating independent hotels, and we’re thrilled that Kukui’ula will be a part of its impressive collection. We look forward to enhancing the guest experience and driving further awareness to the property, as well as positioning the South Shore as the next great luxury destination.”
The Lodge at Kukui’ula will debut new programming heading into 2019, as Hawaii celebrates its 60th anniversary. In addition to current offerings on the Lodge website—including a grand opening $1,000 resort experience credit, the Kaua’i Adventure Experience and the Kaua'i Golf and Spa package —The Lodge will launch ‘Intensives’ in early 2019, consisting of half-day to full-day itineraries filled with cultural experiences and activities on the island led by local Kaua’i guides. Kukui’ula will also unveil ‘A Life Changing Week at Kukui’ula’ in 2019, which will offer once in a lifetime experiences and access to the island’s hidden gems. Earlier this summer the property kicked off ‘The Living Well Yoga Guru Series’—a four-day fitness and well-being program available to members and guests. The series invites top yogis from across the globe to share their practice through a variety of classes, mediations, discussions and activities.
“Having lived on Kaua’i for many years, I have a deep appreciation for this island, it’s people and the value of experiential communities that are true to an authentic sense of place,” says Michael Cuthbertson, vice president and area managing director of Destination Residences Hawaii. “The synergy between our brand and Kukui’ula is unparalleled, we are confident our partnership will thrive as we craft one of the top luxury travel experiences in Hawai’i. Our team could not be more excited to add such a brilliant property to our collection.
