Never a moment where you aren't greeted with an Aloha! Never heard "no" from anyone. Suites are perfect. Beach is great as well. Only downfall is all restaurants/bars are closed by 10:30pm so no late night cocktails.

The Four Seasons is an exceptional, unparalleled experience for peaceful luxury. The rooms and facilities are immaculate, and the secluded private resort is the perfect place to get away from it all. This is nothing like the luxury class resorts in Maui or Honolulu (or even other parts of the Big Island) that feel overrun and crowded. I can't recommend...

Very nice hotel - staff and services were excellent. Our only problem was that our room was upgraded to an ocean view from a partial ocean view and we could not see the ocean due to bushes blocking our view and access to the beach. It's okay because it was an upgrade but if I reserved an ocean view and...

We really wanted to stay in a luxury hotel during our short stay on the Big island, but were disappointed with our overall experience here. We didn't feel like we could relax and it took forever to get into our room. Although the room was nice and pretty clean, the carpets felt dirty. We also had a huge crib in...

We stayed for our anniversary. We loved the restaurants and the relaxing around the infinity pool. The staff was fabulous and the location is unbeatable. The grounds and the room were immaculate. Having three pools for different uses was great. We enjoyed the walk around the golf course and through the lava fields. Just a beautiful place.

Four season is the best resort ever. Cleanliness of the resort is top notch. Service is out of the world experience. I have been 2 other popular Hawaiian islands and have stayed 5star resorts. Experience at Four season was best ever. Great job Team Four Season.

Total understated luxury. The rooms are extremely private and nestled within nature's surroundings. The staff is extremely attentive and yet they seem hidden. Cannot recommend it highly enough. It has never disappointed us in 20 years

While the Big Island of Hawaii may look like a moonscape from the airport and roads, it actually has 7 different climates on the island itself from desert to tropics. The drive to the Four Seasons is a long winding county/highway road that takes you right through the lava fields from Kona to Kailua. Once you enter the gated property...
