If you’ve been wanting to get a jump start on a healthy routine—whether that means eating better, exercising more, or just taking a break from too much screen time, we have plenty of opportunities for you to achieve that balance in a way that is only possible in Kauai.
Wellness is a term that gets thrown around a lot in what has become a booming industry, used to sell everything from protein powder to yoga mats. People often associate wellness with dieting, depravation and sacrifice. But here on Kauai, it’s about abundance.
Here, wellness is a tradition handed down from an ancient legacy of wisdom, stories, and practices that have endured for generations on the island. Traditions of multi-cultural healing practitioners and the abundance of local products, (many of which are harvested right on property, from the Farm at Hokuala) facilitate wellness in ways that aren’t possible anywhere else. This is just one of the reasons Farmer Cody has invested so much into raising the “canoe crops” that were brought to Kauai from Polynesia by boat from its first settlers. Products like salt, clay, herbs, botanicals, honey and citrus all can be used in various ways to heal and nurture your body, mind and spirit.
It’s not just about what you eat but how you feel—clichés aside, as soon as you get off the plane there is something in the air here.

The Hawaiians refer to this quality as mana—and that is the gift we hope to offer you this spring.
