People go to Hualalai with one goal in mind: ultimate relaxation. Surrounded by sugary sand beaches, sparkling blue water, and midnight-black lava landscapes, Hualalai is a family-friendly resort community that offers some much-needed R&R for kids and kids-at-heart alike. Fringed by palm trees and verdant greenery, Four Seasons Resort Hualalai serves as the main attraction. If you’re thinking about heading to Hualalai, this is where you’ll want to set up base camp.
With onsite options ranging from single rooms to oceanfront villas, the five-star resort can accommodate multi-generation family retreats, romantic trysts, and friend-vacations alike. For the best experience (and prettiest views), choose one of the villas, which show off disappearing walls of glass that open to alfresco patios with private pools or hot tubs. Further equipped with wireless internet, Bluetooth, large-screen TVs, and personal espresso machines, the villas make it easy to complete some on-the-go work assignments or curl up with a cup of joe and a good movie to cap off an action-packed day. A dedicated concierge team is on hand to ensure every whim is met at a moment’s notice.
During the day, golfers can get in a round at the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus signature championship golf course, an oceanfront greenway that winds across bright green fairways, black lava, and sandy beachfront. The course recently played host to the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai, which brought together golf greats like Ernie Els and Miguel Angel Jimenez for a weekend of games and good times. During your stay, you can follow in the footsteps of former golf stars by playing with your friends.
For a more laid-back experience, head to the spa, where you can try everything from acupuncture and energy healing to yoga therapy and meditation. Or opt for a Hawaiian-themed spa treatment (think a hibiscus and coconut milk bath or an aloe cocoon ti leaf wrap). Spa-goers can also try out hot stone treatments, manicures, massages, or reiki. Each carefully designed treatment is intended to relax and rejuvenate the body, mind, and soul.
From shaved ice to Hawaiian barbecue and acai bowls, Hawaii is known for its food—so you’ll want to eat to your heart’s content at one of the on-premise restaurants. Set at the water’s edge with plenty of outdoor seating, Ulu Ocean Grill is a go-to spot for romantic sunset dinners. The majority of the food is locally sourced from farms and the ocean, which guarantees that the cuisine matches the views. Some of the restaurant’s signature dishes include freshly prepared ahi poke, sushi and sashimi, lemongrass barbecue chicken, and braised short ribs.
For a more casual eating experience, head to Beach Tree Bar and Lounge. The oceanfront beach bar offers cocktails and all-day snacks that can be consumed under the sun. Choose from Champagne, beer, wine, or refreshing cocktails. (Or, let’s be honest—choose one of each. You’re on vacation, after all!)
If you’re in the mood for a snack, stop by the Hualalai Trading Company. Open from dawn to dusk, the lively social space offers everything from lattes (which are perfect after your early morning jogging or surfing session) to ice cream cones (which can be enjoyed after an afternoon spent on the beach).
Fittingly, Four Seasons Resort Hualalai also hosts the annual Chef Fest Food & Wine Festival, which brings celebrity chefs and mixologists from around the country together for a weekend of high-end dinners and interactive cooking classes. From wine blending classes and cocktail demonstrations to beach cookouts and gala dinners, here’s something for budding chefs and diehard foodies alike. If you’re more of a film person, rest assured Four Seasons Resort Hualalai has you covered on this front as well. The resort serves as a second venue for the Waimea Ocean Film Festival, where screenings are shown in private two-story bungalows.
If you’re looking for a tried-and-true vacation spot that will appeal to people of all ages, book a stay at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai. With direct ocean access, five-star amenities, and sumptuous accommodations, this resort hits all the right notes. Get ready to say hello to paradise!
