Four Seasons Hualalai

95 Editor's Rating
Scale of 90-100

Four Seasons Hualalai is a grand resort in dramatic grounds along a half-mile rocky shoreline on the north Kona Coast. Four lodging crescents house 250 stylishly appointed rooms featuring lanais and lavish granite baths, many with soaking tubs, glass-enclosed showers and outdoor lava-rock showers; avoid less desirable units fronting the snorkeling lagoon (Buildings 1-9) and the small palm grove pool (Buildings 26-33). Romantic ‘ULU Ocean Grill for ocean-to-table cuisine, Beach Tree for California/Italian-influenced food and Hualalai Grille for innovative Hawaiian dishes and steak. Spa (the island’s best) for alfresco treatments; also gym, seven pools, five whirlpools, two oceanside lounges, tennis courts and manicured Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course. Ocean swimming at Four Seasons Hualalai is limited because of sharp close-in reefs.
