Borthwick Kauaʻi Mortuary


How may we help you?

Borthwick Kauaʻi Mortuary has served families on Kauaʻi since 1928. Located in old Kōloa town, the funeral home is about 20 minutes from Līhuʻe, near St. Raphael Church. Borthwick Kauaʻi Mortuary is a Poʻipū Road landmark, resembling a plantation building that hints of Kōloa’s history of Hawaiʻi’s first sugar cane plantation.

At Borthwick Kauaʻi Mortuary, we are honored to be a member of our community for 90 years and have established lasting relationships with generations of families. We appreciate and celebrate the diversity of Hawaiʻi and are non-denominational, welcoming all religions, cultures and backgrounds. We offer a selection of memorialization options, and we are dedicated to honoring the wishes and traditions of each family.
