Nestled in a dramatic lava landscape, the Four Seasons Hualalai stands apart from the other five star properties that pepper the Kona Coast. Rather than a high rise that competes with the landscape, Hualalai is a series of two story bungalows, villas, and suites spread out through a verdant garden of striking greens, white sand, and pitch black lava rock. The low profile and garden paths make this feel less like a hotel and more like your own private paradise.
The rooms are elegantly appointed with a modern, Asian/Island fusion flair. Walk out balconies in the second floor offer dramatic views of the ocean or the championship golf course. First floor rooms have stunning views of their own, plus a lavish, private, outdoor, lava-rock shower. The suites and villas manage the perfect balance of lavish and understated. Roomy, airy, private, and perfectly appointed to account for your every need.
Take a dip in one of the sparkling pools, right in the ocean on a white sand beach, or grab some snorkeling gear and explore King’s Pond. This spectacular pool is actually a 1.8 million gallon aquarium carved of natural lava rock. Swim alongside over 4,000 tropical fish representing more than 98 species including a spotted eagle ray.
Hualalai’s spa integrates tropical gardens with cool interior spaces for a distinctly Hawaiian feel. Relax by a calming stream in the open-air Waiea (Water of Life) garden. Indulge in the whirlpools, saunas, steam rooms, cold plunges, and lap pools, all set amidst lush green gardens. Enjoy massage and body treatments outdoors or indoors.
As with the rest of the property, the 18 hole Jack Nicklaus golf course is crafted to carefully fit with the landscape. Winding over 7,100 yards, you begin in a lush kipua (oasis), flowing across brilliant green fairways framed by black lava, and finishing with the drama of direct seaside golf.
The dining is virtually indescribable. Fresh, inventive, and 75% locally sourced from Hawaii Island (some of it from the resort’s own garden!)
Dine next to the surf and under the stars at ULU Ocean Gril + Sushi Lounge. The cuisine is as innovative and beautiful as it is delicious. The wine list is perfection, the servers knowledgeable, and the ambiance a perfectly romantic, low-key elegance.
Beach Tree offers al fresco dining; casual by day and a lively lounge scene at night. Fresh local ingredients come together in Italian dishes with tropical flair and exquisite presentation.
Hualalai Grille brings you classic American steak dishes along with island fresh fish, and signature appetizers in a casual contemporary club setting overlooking the golf course.
