About the Setting
Getting in the swim of things, the HILuxury team set its sights on Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic KaÊ»upulehu, set on the picturesque Kona-Kohala coast of HawaiÊ»i Island. A magnificent work of destination art built into its natural surroundings, the resort combines history, culture, pure pampering and true aloha to all who come its way. HawaiÊ»i Island’s only Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond hotel, the resort features 243 rooms, including 51 spectacular suites, a signature Jack Nicklaus golf course, a world-class spa and sports club, seven pools and a wide array of cultural experiences and active adventures. Award-winning dining is offered waterside at Beach Tree restaurant and ‘ULU Ocean Grill + Sushi Lounge, highlighting HawaiÊ»i Island Cuisine with a regional, seasonal, artisanal approach. All the while, the contrast of ancient black lava rock with towering coconut palms, white-sand beaches and azure sea creates opportunities for memories and photographs at every turn.
