Kilohana Estate Kauaʻi

What: Historic plantation estate
Where: Līhuʻe on Kaumualiʻi Highway

Past Līhuʻe and headed toward the Kauaʻi Community College campus is Kilohana, a restored plantation estate that provides a glimpse of life in the 1930s. The site of a 16,000 square-foot Tudor mansion that was home to one of the island’s most prominent families, Kilohana is now a picturesque venue for tours, gatherings and a theatrical lūʻau.

Manicured green lawns surround the estate, which now features Gaylord's restaurant and a number of unique shops like the Kōloa Rum Company. Once the center of a 27,000-acre sugar plantation and the hub of Kauaʻi business, cultural and social life, the 35-acre estate now features tropical gardens and an old plantation village. Classic Kauaʻi Plantation Railway gives you a tour of Kilohana’s working farm, and the festive Lūʻau Kalamakū is held regularly. Banquet facilities also make this a perfect venue for weddings, receptions and special events.
