this resort is located in Big Island Hawai and no doubt that Four Seasons has done a fantastic job transforming this "lava" location in the best resort in Hawai and for sure one of the best worldwide. I am sure $$$$$$$ USD have been invested here. For those that are used to FS hotels and resorts this one in Kona...

We have now stayed here three times (fall 2011,2012, and 2013) and have planned our return trip for November of 2014. Each year we contemplate going somewhere new but end up deciding there really isn't anything else we enjoy more than returning to hualalai. From the moment we arrive at the airport and the staff is waiting to assist with...

How can you NOT give this 5 stars? It deserves at least 10 in my book. The resort has everything you can possibly imagine, and more. I have stayed in the resort itself and also in a private residence within the resort. I enjoyed the amenities offered by the Four Seasons at both. I would recommend going to the quiet...

I have been to this property twice and everything about it is perfection. Though the Big Island is not my favorite Hawaiian island, the Four Seasons Resort Haulalai is a show stopper! The pools, the beach, the restaurants, the spa, and of course the staff, are wonderful. When I am stressed out and tightly wound, I still close my eyes...

We stayed here with our 13yo son for a week and enjoyed the beautiful room (and outdoor shower--although a resident bee kept us out of it for the next 3 days) and amenities (laundry rooms conveniently located! loved that), great food, gorgeous ocean view, and friendly, hospitable staff.

Our three night stay was the finest hotel experience we've had to date. Impeccable grounds, beautifully appointed spacious rooms (with complimentary L'Occitane natural beauty products), stunning ocean views and memorable cuisine helped make this an unforgettable holiday. Servers on the beach attend to your every need. Seasoned travellers should experience this hotel at least once - sheer bliss!

I stayed here as part of my company's sales incentive trip in 2013. Everyone thought the grounds were beautiful and had an extraordinary time. The rooms are stunning, the multiple pools were amazing, the food was excellent (expensive though - watch out!!) and the service was top notch from A-Z. Loved it and see why it is world famous.

We stayed here for 5 days at the start of August, although we heard the hotel was at 97% capacity it was always easy to find a lounger on the beach or by the pool of choice. The food was good, the best place for cocktails was at ULU sitting by the fire pit. We had two partial ocean view...
