Enjoy a farm-to-table luxury experience that includes a sugarcane farm and distillery tour and rum tasting. Kailani calls this tour “the perfect combination of history, nature, culture and “YUM.”

Visit the original King Kamehameha Statue, which is rated as a top sight on TripAdvisor. This statue pays homage to Hawaii’s first king. The tour then continues on to the Pololu Valley lookout, which is one of the most picturesque views in the entire state. This spot overlooks 500-foot cliffs and a crescent shaped black sand beach.

At the Kuleana Distillery, taste the evolution of sugarcane juice as it becomes rum. Enjoy an exclusive tour of the island’s first rum distillery.
