The Hawaiians believe that the kupukupu fern is symbolic of growth and new beginnings and that with each new frond comes new opportunity, new experiences, and a fresh start.

    Hale KupuKupu is constructed from old growth redwood planks in the single wall design traditional to the islands during the plantation period of the 1930s and ‘40s.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

accomodations were very nice. surrounded by tree ferns so felt like being in the age of dinosaurs.

We arrived at night and someone had turned the lights on to welcome us! That was just the first of many charming things..

We would go back in a heartbeat, and will definitely recommend... more
