Every Four Seasons I've stayed at has been superb. This is no exception. Beautiful landscaping and location, private exclusive, fabulous food and brunch. My favorite is a brackish water, natural snorkeling pool full of fun fish to watch in a supper safe environment.

When someone asks you to close your eyes and think of your happy place, what do you think of? For me it’s the Four Seasons Hualalai, it will forever be my go to heavenly destination! My husband and I stayed here as part of a corporate event for 5 nights in late October/early November 2014. We really enjoyed our stay... More

This was my first visit to Hawaii and this resort made it memorable. I will recommend this resort for the people who want to unwind from their busy lives. This is not the best value for money but certainly a place where everything will be sorted for you by the hotel staff.

If you've read any of my other reviews - you'll see that this is well above my usual places to stay. I'm delighted that I was able to stay at Hualalai. It's convenient from the airport (much closer than the other Kohala resorts) - but still out of the craziness that you get in Kona. It's not like a lot... More

I am lucky enough to visited Hawaii 6 times (including this trip) and stayed at a variety of luxury hotels...this stands out as the best yet. The whole style (low rise discrete chalet blocks as opposed to a large central block complex) creates an immediate sense of luxury and individuality. Like all "similar" hotels the gardens and landscape are luxurious.... More

We had a wonderful time. The food was amazing. Pools were perfect. The service is was impeccable. This is by far one of the best tropical resorts I have had the pleasure of staying. Outdoor shower was a nice surprise. Upon arrival they had my son's name written out in sponges by the bath. Anything you could ever need is... More

This is by far one of the best resorts I have stayed at! The grounds are beautiful, the room was a nice size and clean-the outdoor shower was an added bonus-it definately added to the tropical flair! The food was outstanding and I found the portions to be more than enough-had to share my dinner at Ulu so I didn't... More

Everything, and by this I mean everything, is provided with a smile and a personal feeling. This hotel provides sunscreen at the pool, ice water and even cleaning of your sunglasses if they are smudged. The setting is beautiful with a real feeling of privacy.

This was our first time staying at the Four Seasons Hualalai. We were spoiled from the time we arrived until the day we left. Seven unforgettable days and six nights with outstanding staff. The housekeeping staff will impress you with their attention to detail and every hotel staff will simply make you feel like royalty. Our room had gorgeous pond... More
