Haute Hideaways: Luxury Retreat on the Isle of Kauai

Ka Hale O Luina (Home of the Mariner), is an exclusive 11.5 acre boutique property on Kauai’s spectacular south shore, catering to discriminating travelers looking to retreat into nature with elegant pampered luxury and sublime privacy.

Perched 1,000 feet above the Pacific in a lush, emerald green valley flowing down to the sea from the Kalaheo hills, Ka Hale O Luina may seem light years from civilization, yet, it’s only minutes from Kauai’s most acclaimed beaches, historic Koloa Town, the Hanapepe Art District, Poipu Village and upscale restaurants such as The Beach House Restaurant and Roy’s.

Then again, you may not wish to leave this dreamy retreat once you’ve arrived, and there’s absolutely no need as the retreat delivers five diamond service and amenities in secluded bliss: body treatments and full service spa treatments, in-home chef prepared meals and/or catered meals delivered to your door, personal trainers and unique adventures.

Comprised of one private, multi-level home and a single-story one-bedroom villa (the “Longhouse”) Ka Hale O Luina showcases exotic woods, ancient carved entry doors, folk and fine art collected from around the globe, Indonesian antiques and lush tropical gardens reminiscent of upland Bali.

The Longhouse, offering 800 square feet of living area and more than 800 square feet of covered lanai, defines organic architecture with its merbau wood decks, crushed stone soaking tub for two and hardwood-lined outdoor shower with see forever views.

The main residence, 1,600 feet of sophisticated elegance, boasts clean contemporary lines, carefully selected artwork and collectible throw rugs. Its open flow, airy interior spaces provide breathtaking panoramic ocean views that subtly suggest luxury living at sea. This one-bedroom, two-bath home includes a large den that is easily converted into a second bedroom as needed.

Ka Hale O Luina is the vision of its owners, now residents of Kauai, and is inspired by their experience with world travel, luxury yachts and fine art. Chic, seductively comfortable and romantic, Ka Hale O Luina welcomes guests through its weathered teak entry door from Madura, complete with traditional wood hinges and carved Chinese characters that translated capture the peaceful retreat’s vibe perfectly: “Sea is luck, mountain is happiness”.

This one-of-a-kind, luxury retreat is available as a full property rental or you may choose to book only the one-bedroom villa. The main residence is reserved solely for complete property bookings. Ka Hale O Luina is barefoot island luxury at its very best. For more details and reservations, visit www.oluina.com; phone (877) 867-5150 or inquire at info@oluina.com.
