 No matter which plan you choose, you can be assured an effortless, elegant luxury.  

Imagine starting your day traversing the stunning Kauai Lagoons in a classically restored vessel. Teeing off on a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course-the Kiele Course-and putting a birdie next to the Pacific. Enjoying the majestic view of plush mountains, on your way to a first class spa experience. Lounging on a private, white, sandy beach next to swaying palm trees and fragrant plumerias. Ending the day meeting friends for dinner at a luxurious restaurant overlooking the crystal azure waters of the sea.

It’s no fantasy. All of this and more is available at the Ritz-Carlton Residences Kauai Lagoons, Hawaii-named number one island in Hawaii by the readers of Travel and Leisure. With 520 acres of land on the Pacific’s shoreline, the Residences are perfect for every person-whether your looking for a place to relax or looking for some adventure. The Ritz-Carlton’s known standards of luxury and service in combination with the “Garden Isle’s” beauty and elegance, will create the perfect place for your oasis away from home.

From the moment you step off the plane your worries will disappear. With the Ritz-Carlton known for anticipating and attending to your every need, the Residence’s private concierge service will transport you from the airport directly to your front door.

Once inside your residence, you will still enjoy a panoramic view of the calming Pacific, the breathtaking Kauai Lagoons, the plush landside, and the grand mountainsides. The Ritz-Carlton is offering 14, private, one- and two-story ownership villas. Each residence will be available as a unique two, three, or four bedroom home, with floor plans ranging from 2,519 to 3,452 square feet of interior space. Every villa will be the pinnacle of luxury, with expansive lanais, granite bathroom floors, a full gourmet kitchen, à la carte services, and access to a personal concierge. The Ritz-Carlton Residences are currently accepting reservations with prices starting at $5.1 million. With the overwhelming interest coupled with the limited number of residences (only 14 will be completed), the luxuries here will be available only to a select few.

No matter which plan you choose, you can be assured an effortless, elegant luxury. And not only are they here to cater to their guests, the Ritz-Carlton is also taking care of the Hawaiian land. Two-thirds of the total property on which the residences will be built is going to be preserved as open “green” space.

Once inside your luxurious residence, you may find it hard to leave, but outside your spacious lanai is a world of activities for every member of your family, just a quiet stroll or watertaxi ride away. On the grounds, you can relax beside the infinity pool, stroll through the 39-acre freshwater lagoon, work out in their state-of-the-art fitness center, or sun on one of two beaches in Kauai Lagoons. As for those who want to have a more hands-on experience of Kauai Lagoons, the Ritz-Carlton Residences offers two beautiful, top-rated Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses for players of all levels, snorkeling, miles of bike paths, walking and jogging trails, and hiking.

While in the Ritz-Carlton Residences, you will enjoy the seclusion of a private location with a variety of amenities, but if you want to explore the island a bit further and experience the local culture, the area has a plethora of offerings, from beautiful beaches to horse-drawn carriage tours of a local plantation. After a day in Kauai Lagoons, nothing is better than experiencing Ritz-Carlton’s fine dining. No matter what you decide to do while staying in Kauai, the legendary service and luxury of the Ritz-Carlton will make sure that every aspect of your trip is memorable.

The Ritz-Carlton Residences at Kauai Lagoons is the perfect retreat. Living on the Garden Isle will give you the elegance, relaxation, and seclusion of being within a Ritz-Carlton Residence with the spirit of old Hawaii.
