"Love is in the Air": The Longhouse featured #8 among 10 Top Romantic Getaways from Around the World

 

O`Luina: The Longhouse - eco-chic
Luxury retreat on the isle of Kaua'i
 
Beautiful organic architecture, tropical, ambiance together with elegant, modern decor and fine art collection make Ka Hale ` Luina a perfect luxury villa for those in search of a sophisticated island setting and all the comforts and amenities of a luxury retreat, a perfect romantic honeymoon hideaway.
 
Perched on more than 11 acres of rural hillside some 1,000 feet above Kalaheo, this unique retreat offers the discerning traveler a new place to hang their sun hat.
 
Ka Hale O Luina — which translates to “home of the mariner” — offers considerable insight into the lives of its well-traveled owners. The duo has an extensive background in the yachting industry, and credit the consistent high level of service they’re accustomed to giving on the boat for the attention to detail in their villa.
 
Casually known as The Long House, this guest home’s architecture evokes a feeling of contemporary Southeast Asian style fused with Kaua‘i-kine touches.
