From plant medicine to food and shelter, nature’s provisions have carried the community on the islands for centuries. By taking our kuleana to the ʻāina seriously, we welcome our Owners and guests onto our farm to learn about sustainable farming and the history of our sacred endemic tree species.

Led by our Hawaiian Cultural Practitioner Kalani Flores, the team at Timbers Kauaʻi at Hōkūala aims to connect our sense of place firmly in the culture where it was built. We strive to do everything pono, respecting the land and the ancestors that came before us. With Kalani’s help, our staff is consistently learning more about Hawaiian culture, language, and practices, which we in turn share with our guests.

We at Timbers strive to exceed that expectation by setting the tone for your trip immediately upon arrival. A short drive from the airport, we will be waiting with just the thing to get you acclimated to island life.

Mandarins are some of the sweetest fruits of the orange family and they are thriving in the sunshine in the organic fruit orchard at The Farm at Hōkūala. These easy to peel, almost seedless and ultra-juicy citrus fruits are the inspiration behind Hualani’s latest freshly squeezed cocktail creation… the Mandarin Gin Fizz!
