I am a bit late on posting but my husband, son and I have been at the Four Seasons Hualalai the past two Thanksgivings and are already booked for this Thanksgiving. We love the resort. To begin, the property is just gorgeous. Lots of pools to pick from and the swimming beach is great for kids as it is protected... More

I have had, through my travel life, the good fortune to stay at some amazing places. When I think of my recent stay at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, I struggled finding one word that I felt appropriate to describe my experience. And so I chose the words exceptional, iconic and epic. My arrival: As soon as I arrived at Kona... More

We have stayed at this Four Seasons Resort on several occasions, and we keep going back. It is our favorite resort period. I measure all other resorts against this one, and, typically, I am a little disappointed with others. However, I there are many resorts we have not had an opportunity to try (e.g. FS Bora Bora). The only other... More

Over the past 15 years we have stayed at just about every Hawaii resort. The Four Seasons Hualalai is clearly the best of them all, probably the best anywhere. The staff simply knock themselves out for their guests, and the rooms, grounds and landscaping are maintained to perfection. We especially enjoyed Restaurants Ulu and the Beach Tree, both with excellent... More

This was our second time back and once again... perfection! The attention to detail throughout the property didn't go un-noticed. Beach/pool staff remembered us by name each day. We loved snorkeling with the fish/turtles in the ocean as well as Kings Pond. The ladies spa has a wonderfully relaxing private outdoor area (showers, plunge pool, hot tub, lounge chairs). Outdoor...

I was definitely looking foward to my stay at this hotel - the images on this website and elsewhere as well as the very positive feedback made me think this could be a very special stay. Although, I had a pleasant time, I cannot say that it was exceptional. The location of the hotel is quiet beautiful, wonderfully kept greens... More

I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your meals at Beach Tree, however I truly regret that you were not informed that the rate for some of our specialty suites includes reserved poolside chairs.

Our recent stay at the Four Seasons Hualaiai was one of the best vacations we have ever had. From the moment we arrived until we departed we were treated like royalty. Our room overlooked the beach and 'library' pool so it was quiet and peaceful. In the evenings, we listened to live music at the Beach House restaurant from our... More

The hotel is on beautiful grounds. There are 4 specific pool and lounge areas. It is important to ask for information on each before deciding where you want to be located. For instance, Sea Shell pool is kid friendly and closest to two main restaurants. All areas are gorgeous and perfectly maintained.

As soon as you arrive here you know you are somewhere special. This was our 3rd & last hotel in Hawaii & wow we saved the best for last.

Aloha from Hualalai! I am delighted to hear that we assisted in building a beautiful memory of your visit with your family here at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai.
