This solid castle and its stone 'borgo’ (hamlet) stand in a private, 4,200-acre estate of rolling hills and far-reaching vistas, offering a bucolic, luxe-rustic experience with all the bells and whistles. The wedding service here is a slick affair with an in-house wedding planner and there’s no shortage of space for blessings and receptions; a deconsecrated church and an amphitheatre-with-a-view, two restaurants (one high-end, the other an informal pizzeria), the lovely main courtyard of the castle plus extensive terraces and gardens.

Hokuala, a $800 million development project, is expected to create 700 jobs on the island. “It’s exciting for Lihue, for people to have a job where they live,” said Mike Cuthbertson, managing director of Timbers Resorts. “People won’t have to commute long distances, so they can be outside and enjoy the island.” Based in Colorado, Timbers Resorts specializes in boutique, private resorts, hotels and residences in the world’s most sought after destinations. They have properties in Italy, California, Florida, Mexico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
