Four Seasons Resort Hualalai

Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is, in our humble opinion, the best of the bunch among the Four Seasons properties in Hawaii. It seems others agree, as it’s also apparently the most successful Four Seasons in the world.

The 192 rooms and 51 are suites are spread around the resort in clusters of low rise bungalows surrounded by palm trees, and the whole sensation is one of being in an extremely agreeable tropical paradise.

The tricky balance between being family and/or couple friendly is successfully navigated thanks to the layout of the resort with the bungalows located in five separate crescents around the various lawns and pools, all facing out towards the ocean, so the hotel can keep children and couples suitably separate.

The bungalows are two stories high, and all have outdoor space known as a lanai (not to be confused with Lana'i the island). The rooms on lower floors lead out straight onto the lawns, and also have outdoor lava showers at the back, while the upstairs Prime rooms have spacious balconies. There is a traditional historic feel to the whole resort and this reflects in the décor of the rooms, which are airy with lots of Hawaiian art and ceiling fans.

There are several restaurants to choose from including Beach Tree, which is very casual, with seating on an outside deck really close to the water. They have an Italian menu, live music and hula dancer most nights. Ulu Ocean Grill and Sushi Lounge does an excellent buffet breakfast and a la carte lunch and dinner. Finally, Hualalai Grille is an American steak house.

One of the main attractions is the seven swimming pools, including the brilliant King's Pond, a seawater pool carved into the lava and home to 75 species of fish - great for snorkelers. Another 'pool' is a roped off warm and shallow area in the sea and the beach here is a treat thanks to the super comfortable sunbeds with retractable hoods that frame the white sand and vivid blue sea.
