Incredible location. Turtles everywhere and we had close encounters with hundreds of dolphins during morning snorkelling trip. We booked oceanfront deluxe room by the kings pond, not impressed by the view. It was not oceanview and a quite busy gateway in front of our room was annoying. No privacy on the balcony/lanai. Loved the outdoor lava garden shower. Good quality... More

The Four Seasons Hualalai Resort is a luxurious five diamond beach front property that extends genuine Aloha to their guests. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the lush, tropical grounds are truly spectacular. We had dinner at their highly-rated "Ulu" restaurant overlooking the ocean and both the food and service were excellent. This resort earns its reputation as being one... More

Loved this hotel. Stayed here after several friends had shared their great experiences. This is a beautiful and serene place to stay. Room was AMAZING, I never wanted to leave. Service was wonderful and the food/ambiance at the restaurants was great. We enjoyed the hotel's snorkeling area - got to see some really great fish in a semi-natural environment. Golf... More

My wife, granddaughter and I were at this resort July 9th through the 18th - it was the finest resort experience of my life. The facilities are excellent but it is the service and attitude of the staff - across the board - that set Four Seasons apart. I give this resort my highest recommendation. My thanks to the staff...

WE stayed July 8th and departed the 16th in room 1201 just outside of the sea shell pool area. This was our second trip and we decided to bring kids with us. We all had a blast. Service was over the top as usual. Hands down best resort we have been to and worth the price if you are lookin... More

Aloha from Hualalai! I am so happy to hear that we were able to spoil you and your family and that you will not be happy staying anywhere else! As you discovered, this resort caters to just about everyone, including couples traveling without children and families. With the widespread layout of Hualalai, even when we are at full capacity, our... More

From the reception upon arrival to the moment we checked out, the staff of the Four Seasons Hualalai was exceptional. Our family of 14 quickly became known as "The Big O'hana" with the resort staff. We are accustomed to struggling with reservations because of the party size, even at 5 diamond resorts, but we did not encounter this at Hualalai.... More

Greeings from "who-wall-la-lie"! My hat is off to you for getting the pronunciations right. It took me years to say Hualalai and Kaupulehu without getting my tongue tied! You wrote such a lovely review of your "Big O'hana" family reunion at our resort and we are grateful to you for your kind comments. As you discovered, children are just as... More

My husband and I have traveled the world and have stayed in some amazing hotels and resorts. The Four Seasons Hualalai is in our top 5 and it is so wonderful to be able to just catch a short inter-island flight to the Big Island of Hawaii from Oahu. The Four Seasons staff is superbly trained and they are so... More

Greetings from Hualalai! We are so happy that your last-minute vacation plans brought you to our litle slice of paradise. I may be a bit biased, but I think the Big Island and Hualalai are ideal for people who need a break from "real life." Ours is a peaceful setting and it sounds like you will be visiting with us...
