Known for its beauty and healing energy, the garden island of Kauai, Hawaii plays a very special role in our wellness program. We’ve considered every aspect of your journey: from location to accommodations to food to exercise to cultural experience, our mission is to help people find their own path to wellness. On the forefront of the wellness travel movement, Matthew Kenney Wellness offers a one of a kind program created to address whole body well-being. Giving our guests the tools to learn how to live a more conscious, aware, and healthy lifestyle both at home and abroad.
Kukui’ula is Kauai’s first and only ultra-luxury private club and residential community. Set on over a 1,000 acres on Kauai’s South Shore and blending historic plantation style architecture with the outstanding modern amenities, Kukui’ula easily offers its guests the best options and amenities available. The meaning of Kukui`ula comes from the three kukui candlenut lava rock bowls that were placed on the property, at Kukui`ula Harbor and on the mountain above in Kalaheo, to guide Hawaiian voyagers to Tahiti and back, as well as Fishermen back to Kukui`ula Harbor.
Matthew Kenney Wellness guests will experience the incredible flavors of the islands presented in an unmatched culinary experience. Guests will savor the colorful and vibrant fruit and vegetables grown right there on property. Kukui’ula’s expansive farm provides a fresh bounty of produce that is never wasted. Guests will literally get their hands dirty and enjoy harvesting produce for a very special dinner. The simple idea of “farm to table” is a huge part of the Matthew Kenney Wellness experience. Using the local resources around is not only a better way to benefit and protect the land, but also our bodies. At Kukui’ula, meals are offered featuring dishes made with fresh, organic and local ingredients. Daily menus are designed by Matthew Kenney in collaboration with Chef Ben Takahashi, with the intention that each meal is a wellness experience within itself. Discover the Hawaiian flavor in dishes grown in your own backyard. Not only is the difference in the taste, but in how you feel.
