Hōkūala Floating Lantern Ceremony

May 11, 2022

At Timbers Kaua‘i, we are passionate about culture, community, and tradition. We light torches to say goodbye to the day and welcome the night. We sing and tell stories, celebrate as an ‘Ohana and connect to the world around us. We honor the land and are proud to celebrate all cultures.

We are proud to announce a new tradition with the inaugural Hokuala Floating Lantern Ceremony on Sunday, May 29th. This once-a-year event will pay tribute to and honor the memory of loved ones.

A Floating Lantern Ceremony symbolizes the ability to overcome the loss of loved ones, demonstrate love and commitment with deep gratitude and appreciation, and bring inner peace. Originating in Japanese culture, the ceremony is a time to awaken meaningfulness, hope, and renewal to create a better future.

As an Owner at Timbers Kaua’i, a floating lantern will be designated specifically for your loved ones, with a personal message placed on the lantern. The intention of this intimate event is to honor loved ones while cherishing and connecting with the ‘āina and feeling a sense of place.

This is a private event, for Timbers Kaua’i Owners only.
