KAUA‘I, Hawaii--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kukui‘ula, Kaua‘i’s leading luxury resort and club community located just east of Poipu, officially launched Kula Makai—their most exclusive real estate offering to-date. Located along the western edge of the property bordering the National Tropical Botanical Garden, and offering spectacular 180 degree panoramic views, each of the 19 Kula Makai homesites represents a rare opportunity to design and build a world-class home perched upon dramatic cliffs with ocean frontage. Homesites range from 22,998 square feet to 44,088 square feet and pricing spans from $4.7 million to $12.1 million.
“We have always known that the Kula Makai site was a very special place within our Kukui’ula resort. Prime oceanfront real estate in a luxury resort community virtually doesn’t exist anymore in Hawai‘i. We have an opportunity to create a truly exceptional enclave here,” says Kukui‘ula President Richard Albrecht.
“When we began to look at the property and develop the plan, we knew the Kula Makai land was quite special. We spent a lot of time studying and analyzing the parcel to create unique homesites for those who feel deeply attached to the land,” says John Sather of Swaback Partners, the architecture, planning and interior design firm overseeing Kukui‘ula’s master plan.
“Inspirational home design can only come from inspirational land and home placement,” adds Shay Zak of Zak Architecture. “At Kula Makai, you feel like you’re on the edge of the world.”
Reflecting its dramatic orientation—perched above the ocean and nestled by the mountains—the land has been featured prominently throughout Kaua‘i history; Queen Emma’s summer home was located just above Kula Makai. Homesites afford views of both sunrise and sunset, in addition to unparalleled views of the New Year’s Eve fireworks, Makahuena fishing grounds, whale watching (November-March), spinner dolphins, Island of Ni‘ihau, Lawa‘i Bay, N‘Milu and Cinder Cone, and Allerton Garden.

In addition to Kula Makai sites, Kukui‘ula offers an expansive selection of custom homesites starting in the $800,000’s. Residents have access to a variety of amenities including The Clubhouse, offering dining, access to the sandy bottom pools and beautiful ocean and sunset views. Adjacent to The Clubhouse is the Spa at Kukui‘ula, an elaborate 20,000 square-foot sanctuary featuring abundant opportunities for fitness, relaxation and rejuvenation. The Farm at Kukui‘ula offers a wide variety of fresh produce that is featured in the club’s menu, and also for owners to pick for themselves. The Golf Course at Kukui‘ula, a private 18-hole award-winning course designed by Tom Weiskopf, offers expansive ocean views along the dramatic ocean bluffs on south shore of Kaua‘i, as well as the surrounding mountains, coffee fields and orchards. Humpback whales are easily seen from the course during the winter season.
