The Four Seasons Hualalai is a gorgeous resort on the Big Island of Hawaii. Set on the Kona coastline, this resort has something for everyone. With a variety of pools for adults and families, a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, excellent restaurants, a number of fun activities, and impeccable service, this resort is the perfect place to enjoy a holiday. Don’t expect the typical beaches here, with volcanic rock along the beaches it creates an incredibly beautiful and unique setting. The resort is very spread out along the coast with many different areas to enjoy, so it never feels crowded even when the resort is full.
In addition to their beautiful pools, the resort offers great water activities. You can snorkel right off the beach, stand up paddle board, and take canoes along the coast. From November to May, you can see whales jumping just off the coast! To get even closer, take a boat trip out into the ocean. The humpback whales come here for the warm water to have their babies and play. You can even see the mamas teaching their babies to swim!
The resort also offers incredible dining experiences. Their Executive Chef Massimo Falsini, all the way from Rome, has brought the Italian style of cooking to the Big Island. They have their own garden and purchase other items from over 160 farmers and fishermen on the island, giving a true locally sourced, farm to table dining experience. In addition to the resort’s excellent restaurants, you can enjoy a cooking class, dine at the chef’s table in the Beach Tree Kitchen, or even have a private dinner under the stars.
Don’t miss a visit to their spa, which is absolute heaven! With over 28,000 sq ft and everything you could imagine including an Apothecary counter, you are guaranteed to leave feeling more relaxed than when you entered! They even have a new couples hale which features dual outdoor showers, a hinoki (Japanese cedar) soaking tub, and a private garden for dining. Bonus points if you surprise your significant other with this experience!
Luxe Tip: For a different view of the island, hop on a helicopter! You can go around the entire island, flying over an active volcano, beautiful countryside, coastline waterfalls, and in certain months even see whales jumping! The island has such stunning scenery and you can see so much of the island you wouldn’t be able to see any other way.
