My husband and I are fortunate. Some of our vacations have been at the Four Seasons abroad as well as the continental U.S. However, nothing you read here or on other reviews will prepare you for the experience of staying at this property. It is the ultimate vacation destination if a tropical setting is your choice of venue. We really love spending time together and we always enjoy our trips away, however, this resort is just stupefying. It's really a perfect experience. This is really a service based resort. Everyone goes far above expectations to ensure guests feel well taken care of during their stay.
The low rise accommodations blend perfectly with the grounds maintaining the feel of an island retreat. No tall buildings on the entire property. Our room was gorgeous and very comfortable and quiet. We had a suite by the lagoon with a view of the ocean. Sitting out on our deck was a feeling of utter contentment. We had smoothies and coffee for my husband and tea for me delivered to our room every morning on our deck before we went to our cycling class.
There are many Ironman triathletes who teach and participate in the classes. But all levels feel comfortable. That is the gift of Hawaii. Partway through class, ice cold towels are delivered to each person on their bikes. Following our cycling class we did a short workout in the gym and outside area. There are lots of choices to stay active if you like. This place makes it so easy to work out. Sometimes when we vacation, we forego working out, let alone daily workouts, but not here. There is this wonderful energy that is so motivating and the reward is pretty out of this World.
Once we were done, we were ready for the amazing breakfast buffet on the beach and a day relaxing or exploring the area. The food at all the restaurants is fantastic. Healthy options are available as well. Wonderful fruits, salads and fresh fish, sushi and also great substantial meat dishes as well. The outdoor restaurants on the water have beautiful views. The cocktails are traditional to innovative tropical concoctions. Service is impeccable from restaurant to the lounge chairs by the pool or on the beach.
We rented an private outdoor canopy bed by the adult pool one of the days we were there. We relaxed, had lunch, a decadent scalp and foot massage (we both fell asleep) read and took a swim in the pool. At the swim up bar, we met some a group of great people and enjoyed a small impromptu cocktail party in the pool. Other days the lounge chair areas in the shaded cabanas or in the sun all had great service, both drinks and food.
This is one of our top romantic trips. We can't think of a better place to stay when we want to relax and enjoy great food, the beauty of Hawaii, amazing service and the most wonderful accommodations.
