Four Seasons Resort Hualalai
Heaven on earth = Four Seasons Resort Hualalai. It's just that simple. This resort is simply marvelous. Accommodations are top notch. Service is fantastic. Location cannot be beat. Food is delectable. Hands down this resort is the best on the Big Island. And according to TripAdvisor, it is voted not only the number one hotel on the Big Island, but is also included in the top 25 best hotels in US.
If you can, stay at the rooms around King's Pond. It's on the edge of the resort so a bit more isolated and quieter than, say, rooms near kids' pool. King's Pond is basically Four Season's own snorkeling pool. They provide gear for you and you get to swim with various fishes including a sting ray looking thing. There is an option of staying on the second floor or ground floor. Obviously when staying on the second floor you don't have someone above you which is usually a plus. But in this case, not necessarily true because when you stay on the ground floor, you get an outdoor lava shower.... and being a Four Seasons hotel, you can be sure insulation is thick enough that you will not hear your upstairs neighbors.
If you are an avid gym goer, Four Seasons Hualalai has you covered. Tons of free weights and machines. The best part of the gym is the surrounding foliage.... definitely a departure from your everyday gym.
Overall this really is one of the best resorts one can stay at. No wonder celebrities like Santana, Leonardo DiCaprio, Courtney Cox, Nancy Pelosi, Cameron Diaz, etc. etc. flock here. These people have all the money in the world and they decide to vacation at Four Seasons Hualalai... enough said.
