I stayed at Four Seasons Hualalai for 3 days and 3 nights before setting off to the other side of the island. It was the best way to begin my trip and it couldn't have been more perfect. The resort is more beautiful in person than the photos show and I love how is lit mostly by torches at night.... More

This is a spectacular resort - wonderful rooms and grounds. We were there for a conference and brought our 11 year-old daughter with us. We stayed in a one bedroom suite and thought it was fabulous. I used the spa which is very nice. The beach area is too rocky to swim for my tastes but still pretty and we... More

We recently visited Hawaii and stayed at the 4S in Maui, the Halekulani in Oahu, and this property. Though all three were priced about the same, this was by far the best, and is also one of the best resorts we have been to. First of all, it feels exotic and special. The property is sprawling, private, and lush. It... More

Delicious food; accomodating, helpful, and friendly staff; gorgeous resort; fun golf course; plenty of activities to keep kids occupied. When our ribcraft excursions from resort were cancelled because of weather, the staff helped arrange for another boat out of Kona (where weather is not as much of a factor). When restaurant did not have the wine we drank last year,... More

I arrived alone for some much needed R&R, only to be given a ground floor room on a cart path with no privacy. The screen door had been slashed. Management was unhelpful and unresponsive. I was offered a second floor room for an additional $109! Went to one of the lovely "quiet" pools only to smell cigar smoke blowing from... More

Beautiful, peaceful, immaculate, comfortable... the dolphins and turtles everywhere were icing on the cake. We've been to several Hawaiian island luxury hotels and this one beats them all if you're into nature, outdoor activities and luxurious accommodations. Those seeking shopping and nightlife should look elsewhere.

Aloha! You gave the best advice ever! Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is a magical spot where people come from all over to relax and rejuvenate. It's an "early to bed, early to rise" resort since no one wants to miss beautiful days in the sun. Thank you for your kind words. We hope we can welcome you again soon. With... More

My husband and I travel a lot. We came here for our honeymoon in July 2011 and have returned twice since. We've already decided we want to retire at the residences on the property. It is beautiful, serene with great service. All of the restaurants are fantastic. It is worth the splurge. Just go!

We have stayed at several places in Hawaii and this is by far one of the very best. We were here a few years ago for a business trip. This time we are in a nearby condo but came to The Grille for dinner with our niece and her husband. The resort is laid out to take advantage of the... More

Stayed 4 nights with our family. Gorgeous place that knows how it's done! An experience we won't soon forget. Yes, on the expensive side, but very worth it. Stayed in FS properties on Maui and Lanai...the one on the Big Island beats them both!

Now that My wife and I have stayed at The Four seasons Hualalai, every other Hotel we will truly pale by comparison. Yes, it is outrageously expensive. But, if I may, worth every penny. The absolutely, hands-down most amazing, jaw-droppingly beautiful hotel, set in the most idyllic background of the big Island of Hawaii. OK, maybe a little heavy on... More
