I do NOT know how more people don't know about this fabulous place. It is breathtakingly beautiful, untouched, private and so luxurious. You get to know the staff on a first name basis as they do you. It never felt crowded or busy. We felt like we were the only ones there some days and it was magnificent. Everything about the lodge is a masterpiece. We cannot wait to go back.

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with our family and we could not have picked a better place to celebrate. The property is breathtaking; the available activities for adults and children alike are suitable for all; the place offers privacy and a relaxing atmosphere with impeccable attention to every detail.

My wife and I had a wonderful time doing nothing in your incredible property but relaxing and enjoying the different areas you have to offer. From the spa experience, to picking veggies from the Farm to cook for dinner, we were blown away at the way of life we were able to create on our mini-getaway vacation. We will definitely be back in the future!

Great place to stay... food is amazing... hours are limited though... shame services are not open later. More like renting a condo and they do a great job making each guest feel special... I wish the cost for lodging was a bit lower but the price value is in line as this is premium lodging... wish the pool was bigger.

Came here for our honeymoon. Luxurious accommodation for that purpose, very well kept but low key grounds. Subtle but good service, particularly the valet booth / circle. Our particular room was one of the bungalows, #9 I think. Neat place, beautiful deck with the ability to hide the dividing wall. Free standing tub and outdoor shower make it feel comfy.

Kukui 'ula is a spectacular property with a fabulous setting, attentive staff and service and every amenity. We enjoyed the breakfasts and the snacks, loved all of the games, proximity to the beach, good walking ares, golf, shops, spa, Farm, bars, pools etc. We enjoyed a beautiful wedding and fantastic dinner after. One morning loud bush trimming woke us up.

Well kept, but pricey. The staff is exceptional. The sunsets were breathtaking. Mattress needed to be replaced. The night sky was unbelievable. The landscaping was meticulous. Wish we could stay longer.

Best spot on Kauai to stay period. Love the staff and amenities. Food is superb and not overpriced. The Farm should not be missed. We made a great salad from our excursion up there at sunset. Golf was great and the course is really stunning! I wish my score reflected how much I enjoyed the round!

Beautiful property, clean, food and service was great. The gardens were magnificent. The golf was so great. It was really, really expensive but well worth it for a HUGE vacation and would do it again in a heartbeat!!

One of may favorite hotels in the world- we go all the way from Spain! Especially awesome if you go w kids ages 2-12! The pool area, food, bungalows are all awesome, but especially its the people that work there that make it great
