Amazing property

We stayed for 5 days - didn't want to leave the resort. Great location right on beach and gorgeous sunsets from almost every room. Food and drinks were excellent but a little pricey. Still cannot wait to return. Separate pool areas for families and adults only was very nice. Mainly relaxed by beach and pool area - only negative is lack of a swimming beach.

Unbeatable Honeymoon

We got married and honeymooned at the Four Seasons Hualalai. It certainly lived up to all the hype on all the travel websites. After exploring the Big Island the first few days, we just wanted to stay at the resort more and more. The pool staff refilled your water constantly and even cleaned your sunglasses! The dining was expensive, but sushi at Ulu Sushi Lounge was excellent. Ask for the macadamia nut mud pie for dessert when you dine at Hualalai Grill! It will not disappoint. We have become regular Four Seasons guests and this one was superb. The only one that may be better is Four Seasons Bora Bora!

Local dining hot spots.... The Big Island Grill for tasty local food, Da Poke Shack for fresh poke, and Jackie Rey's Ohana Grill for a nice dinner and cocktails.

PERFECTION!

We have been to many of the best resorts in the world and have never experienced such service and perfection. Expect all the staff up to the general manager to know your name. Beautiful comfortable rooms...perfect beaches and sunsets...great restaurants..amazing service in every way to make your vacation perfect. A little pricey but if you are looking for the ultimate getaway and need to chill this is it by far. We cannot wait to go back..well worth the money.
