Set along the pristine Kona coast of Hawaii Island, this luxurious resort is the perfect setting to indulge in some R&R.
The most exclusive abode is the aptly named Hawaii Loa Presidential Villa – a sprawling two-story villa situated directly on the oceanfront, mere steps from the Pacific. Not only is this the best spot at the resort for watching the seasonal migration of humpback whales, it’s also a wonderful base from which to explore the rest of the island.
Families planning to visit Four Seasons Resort Hualalai will be delighted to hear that the Hawaiian hotel’s most prestigious accommodation is also its most child friendly. With space for up to eight guests (including five children) across four bedrooms, the villa features a spacious outdoor terrace with a plunge pool that doubles up as a hot tub; and direct beach access.
Although the Presidential Villa is ideal for families, parents can enjoy some privacy too, with the master bedroom set alone on the top floor. The master bedroom has its own expansive bathroom and a charming indoor/outdoor living space, just for adults (in theory).
Of course, this is a Four Seasons resort, so you can expect the service to be second to none. A complimentary kids program promises to keep little ones entertained when the grown-ups need some well-deserved downtime, while a dedicated concierge is on hand to help craft adventure-filled itineraries for the whole family.
When it comes to dining at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, you’re spoilt for choice – the resort is home to an array of gourmet eateries from the sleek ‘Ulu sushi lounge to the Hualalai Grille steakhouse overlooking the immaculate 18-hole golf course.
There’s also an expansive spa including a collection of private wooden hales set among lush tropical gardens where you can indulge in a hot stone massage or acupuncture session. Almost every treatment harnesses the island’s natural healing energy to leave you feeling completely rested and restored.
