Still the premier Four Seasons in Hawaii. A refresh is due(something that is rumored to be in the works) but remains the best hotel in the state. If you can afford it, don’t miss out. You won’t regret it!

Are the pools heated?
We spoke to one of the pool attendants and they said they match the pool temperature to the air temperature so that getting in and out is not too much of a ‘shock’ - this is the Four Seasons after all!! I can not recommend this location highly enough - pure luxury. Enjoy...

"Second floor rooms have better views/more privacy, ground floor rooms have tropical, private, outdoor shower."
"I stayed over by the King’s pond, with an ocean view. It was on one side of the resort nice and quiet."
"Ocean Front Room 101 Best standard room on the property (at the very end by Kings Pond if you dont mind the walk)"
"801 was beside the kings pond and a stones throw from Ulu restaurant....lovely outdoor shower and private lanai looking onto the pond"
"Rooms are arranged in "crescents" around the various pools. May want to choose or avoid the family pools accordingly."
