How can you NOT give this 5 stars? It deserves at least 10 in my book. The resort has everything you can possibly imagine, and more. I have stayed in the resort itself and also in a private residence within the resort. I enjoyed the amenities offered by the Four Seasons at both. I would recommend going to the quiet... More

I have been to this property twice and everything about it is perfection. Though the Big Island is not my favorite Hawaiian island, the Four Seasons Resort Haulalai is a show stopper! The pools, the beach, the restaurants, the spa, and of course the staff, are wonderful. When I am stressed out and tightly wound, I still close my eyes... More

We stayed here with our 13yo son for a week and enjoyed the beautiful room (and outdoor shower--although a resident bee kept us out of it for the next 3 days) and amenities (laundry rooms conveniently located! loved that), great food, gorgeous ocean view, and friendly, hospitable staff. The resort is spacious enough that we never had to scramble for... More

Our three night stay was the finest hotel experience we've had to date. Impeccable grounds, beautifully appointed spacious rooms (with complimentary L'Occitane natural beauty products), stunning ocean views and memorable cuisine helped make this an unforgettable holiday. Servers on the beach attend to your every need. Seasoned travellers should experience this hotel at least once - sheer bliss!

I stayed here as part of my company's sales incentive trip in 2013. Everyone thought the grounds were beautiful and had an extraordinary time. The rooms are stunning, the multiple pools were amazing, the food was excellent (expensive though - watch out!!) and the service was top notch from A-Z. Loved it and see why it is world famous.

We stayed 6 nights at the Four Seasons Hualalai at Historic Ka'upulehu from July 31st to August 6th. Our experience with this amazing hotel started well before we arrived, having made a booking we contacted the hotel and let them know that we will be spending a big part of our honeymoon at the property and kindly asked for a...

We stayed here for 5 days at the start of August, although we heard the hotel was at 97% capacity it was always easy to find a lounger on the beach or by the pool of choice. The food was good, the best place for cocktails was at ULU sitting by the fire pit. We had two partial ocean view... More

We stayed there for a wedding, and the weeklong stay was incredible. From the moment we checked in (the greeters offer you a cool towel, cold mai tai, and chilled piece of pineapple while you fill in the paperwork), to the moment we checked out, we felt welcomed and relaxed. Within a few minutes, every member of staff called us... More

Greetings from Hualalai! I am happy to hear that your week-long stay at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai was "incredible." It appears that you experienced a lot that our resort has to offer, but you must return to play golf. The course is beautiful with just the right amount of challenge. Weddings are always joyful occasions and (I might be a... More

I stayed in Four Seasons Hualalai during my honeymoon in July 2012. It was my first stay at Four Seasons, and we were deeply impressed at the warm hospitality of the staff and the beautiful setting of the resort property. The resort is situated on an extensive area, encompassing the resort and also the golf course. In order to reach... More
