Till recently, the only way to get a tee time or spa appointment at Kauai’s posh Club at Kukui‘ula was to own a vacation house there. In August, though, the private resort community on the South Shore opened The Lodge at Kukui‘ula, which now includes 15 Club Cottages you can reserve by the night.
Rates start at $1,000, which gets you two master suites, a full kitchen, washer/dryer, a screened lanai, and, outside, a firepit and gas grill. (And most cottages have their own mini cottages, with a third bedroom.) When you consider all that, it’s quite a deal. Round up the family!
