Overview

Welcome to Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka'upulehu. Gloriously revitalised, this natural tropical paradise offers more than ever to explore – with a newly expanded Spa, beachfront dining, fashion boutiques and new Deluxe Suites, in addition to Jack Nicklaus signature golf. Set on the Big Island’s exclusive Kona-Kohala Coast, this showpiece oceanfront resort captures the essence of Hawaiian design, culture and tradition.

Housed in intimate two-storey bungalows, Four Seasons Resort Hualalai's 243 expansive guest rooms, including 51 suites, are arranged in small crescents along the beach and golf course. These comfortable and spacious luxury accommodations project a nostalgic sense of Hawaii’s Golden Age seen through a modern lens. An extensive collection of Hawaiian art and artefacts throughout the Resort tells the story of Hawaii.
