Kukui’ula Welcomes Members and Guests Back to Kauai South Shore

Kauai’s Premier South Shore Real Estate Community Reopens
in Conjunction with State Safety Protocols

Kukui’ula, the 1,010-acre exclusive club and resort community, will welcome back members and guests coinciding with Hawai‘i Governor David Ige’s approval for trans-Pacific travel to resume.

The state’s pre-travel testing program will allow visitors to avoid the mandatory 14-day quarantine if they have a negative NAAT COVID-19 test no earlier than 72 hours before their flight arrives. 

We are ready to welcome back members and guests to their island home on the South Shore of Kaua‘i.

We will continue to provide the ultimate family retreat while offering a safe and enjoyable experience utilizing the luxury of our 1,010-acre property, unforgettable adventures, breathtaking beaches, and an abundance of private resort amenities to help guests unwind, rejuvenate and explore our outdoor playground. 


– Richard Albrecht, president of Kukui’ula

With homes, guest accommodations, and activities spread out across the vast property and the wide-open space of the island beyond, Kukui’ula remains a safe haven for exploration, restoration, and relaxation – for a short visit or as a home-away-from-home.

Now more than ever, travelers are valuing the outdoors, and Kukui’ua’s expansiveness and naturally socially distanced environment allow members and guests to experience the best of Kaua‘i in a safe setting. 

All travelers to Hawai‘i, including children, can bypass the 14-day quarantine by getting a negative PCR NAAT COVID-19 test result, taken within 72 hours of travel. Hawai‘i has set up agreements with CVS Pharmacies, Kaiser Permanente and others for the pre-testing program.

This process will complement the state’s enhanced contact tracing, temperature monitoring, and traveler health interview screening procedures put in place when inter-island travel was opened in June.

Travelers unable to complete the testing protocols will still be required to quarantine. Masks and social distancing requirements are still in place in Hawai‘i. 

The Club at Kukui’ula

The Club at Kukui’ula has resumed operations from Tuesday-Sunday and activities such as outdoor fitness classes, sunset sailing excursions, take-home “meal-kit,” recipes, and ingredients to create Club favorite dishes at home, and more. ‘Umeke Kitchen + Bar is currently open at a limited capacity for dining and pool service.

To ensure a pleasant and safe experience, seating is adjusted to allow six feet between tables as well as heightened sanitation and mask-wearing among all staff. The golf course, pools, tennis courts, and pickleball courts are open on a first-come-first-serve basis. 

The Lodge at Kukui’ula

The Lodge at Kukui’ula, managed by Destination Residences Hawai‘i, has accommodation offerings featuring expansive, full-service kitchens, multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, private outdoor lanais, and spacious living areas.

All units have private access and do not require the use of any public elevators, hallways, etc. The resort has implemented enhanced cleaning and safety standards guided by the Hyatt Care & Cleanliness Commitment, ensuring a healthy and safe stay.

The team is sensitive to the ever-changing situation and will be extending a flexible booking policy and no fees or penalties for altering a reservation. 

Those coming to Kukui’ula unable to complete the current testing protocols will be required to quarantine in a reduced ‘Resort Bubble’ area at the property.

The ‘Bubble’ will allow for movement beyond a guest’s room in a limited space with restrictions on activities. 

Kukui’ula Real Estate

Kukui’ula features a wide variety of spectacular real estate options ranging from luxuriously appointed, turn-key two, three, and four-bedroom homes to spacious homesites that range in size between one-third to three acres, all of which feature panoramic views of the south shore and out across the Pacific Ocean.

Standout listings include Hale Nanea, a one-of-a-kind architectural designed by renowned architect Olson Kundig, Kainani Villas, or cottages and bungalows just steps away from the Clubhouse. 

Recently, Kukui’ula announced a new homesite inventory in Makani Kai and the Kāhela Neighborhood, a collection of coastal parcels offering breathtaking views of Kauai’s coastline, accented by the site of the lush green fairway and migrating whales.
