KOLOA, Kauai (KHNL) - The start of construction of a $100 million recreational, amenity and dining clubhouse at Kukuiula on Kauai broke ground Tuesday with a traditional Hawaiian blessing celebration.
The 20,000 square-foot Kukuiula Plantation House will feature coffered ceilings and wood beams, intimate furniture arrangements, overhanging eaves and a wrap-around outdoor lanai with panoramic views of the nearby Spouting Horn blowhole, the Pacific Ocean and the golf course.
A canopy of monkeypod trees will line the entryway to the Plantation house where a casual dining house and bar, game room, library, kids area, garden café and beach-inspired pools will overlook Kukuiula Bay.
"We're excited to begin construction on several of the most critical components of our community," said Richard Holtzman, president of Kukuiula Development Hawaii. "Our Plantation House is the gathering place for all of our social and club activities and ensures the family-oriented lifestyle we're offering our owners."
Already underway at Kukuiula is an 18-hole private golf course.
