Kilohana Plantation

This National Historic Landmark freeze-frames Hawaii's plantation-era architecture. Kilohan—meaning "not to be surpassed"—was built by a sugar baron in 1935. The 1,500-square-meter (16,000-square-foot) Tudor-style mansion contains Art Deco detailing and fine woods, some all the way from England. In its heyday, it hosted many extravagant parties. Today this all-singing, all-dancing destination boasts a 40-minute railway tour, the island's only theatrical luau and the Koloa Rum Company's tasting room. The new Mahiko Lounge includes a sugarcane press, deployed by bartenders for tropical cocktails.
