Talk Story with Chris Gampon

We are so happy to welcome our new General Manager, Chris Gampon to the Timbers Kaua‘i at Hōkūala family. Chris was born and raised on Kaua‘i, and joined the team in March of this year. Please join us in a warm aloha and welcome to Chris as we learn more about him in this month’s Talk Story.


Timbers Kaua’i isn’t the typical resort, we certainly have all the frills, but we aren’t frilly. Every moment you spend at your home in paradise should feel like home, and the ritual of mealtime—the breakfasts during which you plan your day, and the dinners spent reminiscing on your adventures—are quintessential to the Timbers Kauai experience.

We are pleased to announce that the Ocean Course at Hokuala was awarded North America’s Best Golf Course in 2017 by the World Golf Awards.

Home at Timbers Kauai offers almost as many adventures as the island of Kauai itself.

Kauai holds many secrets and unique treasures, including ⅓ of all the endangered species in the United States.

With only 33 weeks remaining until grand opening, progress is happening fast here at Timbers Kauai.

Community, friendship, and ohana are at the core of Timbers Kaua’i’s beliefs, and with so many thriving organizations on Kaua’i it is not hard to (literally) exercise our beliefs. From mud runs to balls, our staff loves to get out and contribute to the charities and organizations that make Kaua’i so special.

Most dream of sandy beaches and Mai Tais when planning a vacation to Kauai, but the interior of the island holds its own variety of beauty and treasures. Through lush tropical forest you’ll discover majestic waterfalls, some reachable after a quick stroll from the parking lot, while others require steady tromps past geckos and hibiscus flowers. The following five are a short drive from your home base at Timbers Kauai.

With each passing day, the grand vision for Timber Kaua’i Ocean Club & Residences becomes clearer and clearer. We’ve recently reached some exciting construction milestones on all three buildings at our signature development in the Hokuala resort on the sunny southeastern shore of Kaua’i.

With so many activities on Kauai, it can be hard to know where to start. Fortunately, with Kalapaki Beach serving as home base for Owners at Timbers Kauai Ocean Club & Residences, the Kauai Beach Boys can help point you in the right direction. Since 1983, the Kauai Beach Boys have been teaching surf lessons, and have since expanded to stand up paddleboard (SUP) lessons, canoe rides, snorkel and kayak rentals, and anything else you could hope to do on the ocean.
