Unrefined beauty meets elite amenities in Kukio.

​​​​​​​Welcome to Kukio

Located near Kona, Kukio borders Kukio Bay on the northeastern Kona-Kohala Coast of Hawaii’s Big Island. The Kukio Beach Club operates on 650 acres, and as the only private equity golf and beach club on the island, it is incredibly exclusive. Residents enjoy the relaxing peace and privacy away from travelers while maintaining the impression of living at a resort, with access to the finest amenities on the Big Island. Homes in Kukio are expansive, single-family dwellings that pair Hawaiian architectural styles with mesmerizing views and top-of-the-line appliances.

Play a round on the Tom Fazio Signature Golf Course located adjacent to the Four Seasons Hotel. The 18-hole course features pristine views of the Kona-Kohala Coast’s crystal blue waters, and with a par of 72, it is sure to give players an exciting challenge. The 10-hole course is a more moderate option, perfect for players on the go. Tee times aren’t needed here, so members and their guests are welcome to golf at their leisure. Additionally, members are invited to participate in an exclusive golf tournament. The golf clubhouse serves players with the most luxurious accommodations, like fully stocked comfort stations with food and drinks, as well as men and women’s locker rooms, a pro shop, and a restaurant.

Not into golf? Don’t worry. Kukio residents also have access to an exclusive beach club. Kukio Outdoor Pursuits and Mauka fitness programs invite members to lead active lifestyles both on and off the water. Canoe sailing and surfing are favorites for ocean lovers, while customizable hikes to nearby black sand beaches and island bike tours are perfect for residents who prefer to keep their feet on solid ground. Views of Hawaii’s famed fish pools (and Maui in the distance) create a mesmerizing backdrop that reminds residents to remember Hawaiian culture and traditions. Each year, the neighborhood hosts the Kukio Blue Water Swim, a 1.2-mile swimming race from Manini'owali Beach across Uluweuweu Bay to Kukio Beach. A portion of each participant’s entry fee is donated to The Nature Conservancy, a conservationist effort to maintain and support Hawaii’s diverse marine ecosystems. This elite community leads the Big Island in luxury and style, creating an unmatched lifestyle for residents who want it all.

Kukio families are served by Waimea’s prestigious private schools, Parker School and Hawaii Preparatory Academy.
