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 luau. We visited the various artisan shops located around the grounds before going over to the house for dinner. There were also shops upstairs and downstairs in the home. Manicured green lawns surround the estate, which now features 22 North and a number of unique shops like the Koloa Rum Company. Once the center of a 27,000-acre sugar plantation and the hub of Kauai business, cultural and social life, the 35-acre estate now features tropical gardens and an old plantation village. We rode on the Kauai Plantation Railway, winding through the plantation’s working farms and orchards.
