It’s one of the island’s best-kept secrets. A secluded piece of high ground overlooking the Pacific, near the calm waters of Kalapaki Beach. Hokuala is where you find Kauai’s only Jack Nicklaus signature golf course. In this one-of-a-kind resort community, nature plays a leading role. A morning run takes you through groves of mango and papaya. You catch glimpses of rare birds. And with a home or luxury vacation rental at Timbers Kauai – Ocean Club & Residences, all this is just steps from your front door. This resort is ideal for romantic trips for two, or groups up to twelve; there is something to suit everyone and some of the world’s best weather.
“I think of Kauai as a laid-back tropical paradise. The island is quainter and less commercial than Oahu and Maui. I put forth my best effort in the design process. The quality of conditioning, maintenance, and playing experience is important to me. It all reflects on my name and brand. It’s reassuring Timbers Resorts is willing to make a commitment to ensure that the product I have produced is taken care of, enjoyed, and thought well of for generations to come.” – Jack Nicklaus

Neutral tones set the stage for breathtaking panoramic ocean and mountain views, creating an incomparable living experience. You won't know where inside ends and nature begins.

The food and beverage program at Hokuala is purely driven and influenced by the relationship between farmer and their harvest, rancher and their cattle and fisherman and their catch. Hualani’s Restaurant features a bold approach to seasonal farm-to-table Hawaiian dishes for breakfast and dinner. All cuisine showcases ingredients sourced daily from The Farm at Hokuala, which is an organiv community farm dedicated to agri-education and managed by Kauai local farmer Cody Meyer.
Nalu’s Restaurant embraces approachable, thoughtful and creative cuisine. It’s a pool-side grab-and-go that offers light salads, hot and cold sandwiches and wraps along with an array of snacks to enjoy.
The Resort is happy to offer an exciting range of options for in-room dining for those occasions when you want an exceptional meal but don’t feel like going out. They will deliver to your door with anything from an intimate ‘table for two,’ or for the whole group. Townhouses also have their own kitchen, so you can cook up anything you’d like.
Of the many attractions of Hokuala, one of the most notable is that the airport is literally adjacent to the resort. Arrive and be on your lanai enjoying the view in minutes. When it’s time to depart, you can relax poolside, savouring every last moment of aloha. The resort provides shuttle service to and from the airport. If you rent a car, the resort is just a seven-minute drive from Lihue Airport.
Inspired by the Polynesian culture centred on the balance and wisdom of nature, the Spa at Timbers Kauai weaves ancient healing traditions with the bounty of island botanicals to inspire “lokahi”, harmony of body and spirit. The Garden Isle is abundant with “Canoe Plants,” plants originally brought to Hawaii by the early Polynesians traveling by canoe. The spa incorporates these precious ingredients to create thoughtfully crafted spa treatments designed to restore and support balance. Each spa experience is unique and tailored to guests.
Hokuala features two pools to fit whatever mood you’re in. Over at Kaiholo, relax in the serene, two-tiered infinity pool with breathtaking panoramic views of the Pacific, Ninini Point and Ha’upu Mountains. And at Maliula, enjoy the fun ‘ohana pool, complete with waterfalls, next to Nalu’s Grill and the family game lawn.
