Aloha! JP here from the Kauai Real Estate Group.
I had the opportunity to go on a tour at what is going to be the newest development of the Timbers Resorts collection here on Kauai. The name of the development is Hokuala, which stands for rising star.
If you aren’t familiar with Timbers Resorts, it is super high-end luxury real estate and boutique resorts. They have 13 locations worldwide and offer full ownership and fractional ownership. The location of Hokuala allows people to be located close to everything you need, and anything else is just a short drive away. Actually, you might not even ever leave the property if you own here. Look at this location on a google map!
There is more than enough to do on the 450 acres they plan to develop. Owning at Hokuala gives you a great opportunity to own at a fraction of the cost and still travel/visit four to eight weeks out of the year. Not only that, but if you own at Hokuala, you also have an opportunity to trade some of your time and visit other locations worldwide. One of their most popular being in Tuscany, Italy. And if fractional ownership isn’t what you want to do, then you can fully own some of the private residences and townhomes they plan to develop.

Once Hokuala is fully built out I believe it will take over as the most sought after property in their collection. The season is year-round here on Kauai. Visitors come and go all the time. If you are an owner, you will have exclusivity and perks to many areas on the property.
Members have their own tee boxes for practicing at the driving range. Did I mention the golf course? Hokuala, when complete, will have 36 holes for golf. Currently 18 holes are in use of this Jack Nicholas designed golf course. This course also features one of the longest stretches of oceanfront holes you can find. I actually hit a few balls into the ocean, I’m sad to say. It is by far one of the nicer, more challenging courses on the island.
Close by is Kalapaki Beach where you can drink, eat, surf, paddle board, kayak, and the list goes on and on. You have a great chance of seeing a whale breach the surface looking out to sea.

There are no shortage of activities or amenities when it comes to a Timbers Resorts development. When you get tired of going to the beach or golfing, you can go on a nature hike through the undeveloped portion of the property. Back there you will find the exotic fruit tree lilikoi, where you can literally eat off the tree. There are also these pretty amazing rainbow eucalyptus trees, which are fascinating to look at. I had never seen anything like it before.

When it’s all said and done, Timbers Resorts will have spent close to $800 million redeveloping the old Kauai Lagoons into a very high-end luxury development called Hokuala, with everything from concierges to help you along the way with anything you might need, and water taxis. Yes, you read that correctly. There are lagoons on the property where you can hop in a little boat and someone will take you to other parts of the development.

I’m standing in the picture above where the new gym, restaurant, and shopping facilities will be. You will have this amazing view looking over the 14th hole and lots to do. They haven’t released pricing to the public on how much it will cost to own at Hokuala yet, but I do know the earlier you get in, the better pricing you will receive.
If this sounds like something you might be interested in, then please contact me. I can help coordinate a VIP tour for you and you can get a better idea of how amazing this place is going to be. I am at your service.
