Kilohana Plantation is listed as the only place in the Hawaiian Islands where you can ride a train, hike through a rainforest, taste locally made spirits, shop, dine or enjoy a day spa. They even forgot to mention that there is a luau here as well!

The word Kilohana in Hawaiian literally means "not to be surpassed" and back when sugar baron Gaylord Wilcox built this estate you can imagine how this place couldn't be possibly be surpassed. The plantation was built in the 1930's and you can walk through the main house which now houses shops and restaurants. The house is 16,000 square feet and sits on 35,000 square feet of manicured lawn and remains a Historic Landmark.

Since 1986 when Kilohana opened to the public, they've grown from 36 to 104 acres and have become a major visitor destination on the island of Kauai.

Food options include Gaylord's at Kilohana and Mahiko Lounge but if you're looking for dinner and a show then check out Luau Kalamaku. Kids are sure to enjoy a ride on the Kauai Plantation Railway at Kilohana Plantation. Adults will enjoy a rum tasting at the Koloa Rum Tasting Room & Company Store.

Some of the local shops here include Clayworks At Kilohana, Aloha Spice Company at Kilohana, The Hawaiian Collection Room, Banana Patch Studio, The Artisan's Room, Sea Reflections, and Kauai Sweet Shoppe. If you have sore muscles, book a relaxing massage at the on-property Zensations.
