Four Seasons Hualalai on the Big Island is Being Renovated, welcome news to our clients who love returning to this unique Hawaii luxury resort.
If there's a silver lining to the COVID-19 pandemic for hotels, it's that it's enabled them to undertake significant renovations without compromising the guest experience, since there have been many fewer guests, and resorts such as Hualalai closed to guests entirely starting in March 2020, due to Hawaii's mandatory 14-day quarantine. Only since October 15 have arrivals been able to skip Hawaii's quarantine with a negative COVID-19 PCR test. Four Seasons Hualalai, however, will remain closed until 12/1/2020 (see Hawaii Luxury Hotels: Reopening Dates and Offers).
Here are the renovations and enhancements Four Seasons Hualalai guests can look forward to:
New Oceanfront Bungalow
The most coveted room types at Hualalai are the Ocean View Deluxe rooms in Building 8, by King's Pond, and the Oceanfront rooms, especially in the King's Pond crescent. Given this demand, Hualalai is adding a new bungalow by King's Pond, including a suite with its own private pool.
New Pool at King's Pond
King's Pond is Hualalai's unique lava rock pool, with tropical fish and even an eagle ray. It's a fantastic snorkel experience even for young kids, who don't have to worry about waves knocking them about. A new pool with loungers has been added.
Fully Renovated Hualalai Golf Course
Golfers will be happy to know that the golf course is undergoing a full renovation; the first 9 holes will be ready by the time the resort reopens on December 1, and all holes will be fully renovated by December 19, 2020. What won't change are the sweeping views that are a particular highlight for the final holes, whether you're an enthusiast or one of the golfers on the annual Mitsubishi Electric Championship on the PGA Tour Champions.

Full Renovation of All Rooms and Suites
The full renovation of all rooms and suites will proceed through Q1 2021; since the entry level Ocean Golf rooms and suites will be the last to be renovated, we recommend not booking those, and instead reserving Ocean View Deluxe Rooms. TravelSort Clients will enjoy Four Seasons Preferred Partner benefits, including top priority for upgrades (ahead of AMEX FHR, etc.)
