What it is
A collection of two-room bungalows set on otherworldly seafront black lava fields.
What it isn't
On “island time.” As with any Four Seasons property, top-notch service is paramount.
What we think
Golfers schlep their clubs from across the globe to vacation here—the resort’s Jack Nicklaus–designed golf course is a stop on the PGA Champions Tour, and among the best in the state. But with après-golf activities like snorkeling a 1.8 million gallon lava-carved aquarium (with 98 kinds of tropical fish); outrigger canoe and ukulele lessons; and a 28,000-square-foot spa with volcanic mud and sea clay treatments, you may be inclined to play the course on a speed round. All 243 guestrooms are ringed by gardens and set around seven Tiffany blue pools and five whirlpools; each room is fitted with classic Hawaiian wood-shuttered windows and a lanai with a water view (pool or sea); ask for one with an outdoor lava rock shower.
You're here because
It’s considered one of the most luxurious resorts in the state, with a residential feel and the best service—and you want to be spoiled from the moment you’re handed an oshibori (chilled, fragranced towel) upon arrival.
You’re looking at daylight differently now, thanks to a photography workshop with National Geographic master Joe McNally, who teaches a four-day workshop at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai—complete with a lesson via helicopter.
