Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka’upulehu, Kailua-Kona, Big Island, Hawaii, USA
This Four Seasons property has ‘wow’ written all over it, from its dramatic position on the deliriously-beautiful Kona-Kohala Coast, to the unique layout of the resort itself.
In a series of two-storey bungalows peppered naturally across the lava coastline, each of the 243 rooms and suites is tastefully decorated (let’s call it ‘Pacific chic’!), each with step-out access to either the beach or the five pools.
Especially lovely are the newer one- and two-bedroom suites with their resplendent 180-degree views.
Golf also plays a major part in the allure of this very special Four Seasons, not least because the resort’s exclusive course was designed by Jack Nicklaus.
Add to that one of the world’s leading spas, plus three stand-out restaurants, and your stay promises to be nothing shy of wonderful.
