    Just northeast of Kekaha Kai State Park, the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is one of the most luxurious resorts on the Big Island. Recent visitors suggested indulging in the Hualalai Spa, which features spa treatments with island twists, like a Polynesian Niu (Coconut) Scrub or a Sun Relief Ti Leaf Wrap. Meanwhile, the resort's seven unique swimming spots  from a saltwater pond with a few friendly manta rays to an oceanfront infinity pool  earn high marks across the board. Should you be interested in learning more about Hawaiian life, the Ka'upulehu Cultural Center offers interactive programs that give insight into the island's history, traditions and even music. After a long day of learning (or relaxing), enjoy a fresh seafood meal at one of three restaurants or two lounges before retiring to your room. Accommodations at this Four Seasons resort feature nature-inspired hues and Hawaiian art, as well as balconies, granite bathrooms and plasma TVs. Although recent guests won't deny that room rates and dining costs here are high, they say that the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai's facilities and customer service are worth the price.

    This spa resort doesn't take any of its five stars for granted, particularly when it comes to delivering first-rate customer service. Recent guests can't help but keep the compliments coming: Travelers say that the resort staff took extra care to personalize each experience. One problem you might face, however, is exclusivity. The Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach only has 98 guest rooms and suites, so be sure to book early for an upcoming trip to Sunny Isles Beach. The rooms come with flat-screen TVs and private balconies, as well as double sinks and glass-enclosed showers. Meanwhile, the property also features three in-house eateries, four pools, a spa and beach amenities. What's more, the hotel is part of The Leading Hotels of the World, meaning Leaders Club members have access to perks here. You'll find the Acqualina Resort & Spa in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, about 11 miles north of Miami Beach.

    Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas
    Las Vegas, NV

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 6224 reviewsTripAdvisor (6224)
    Read More

    Nestled in the heart of the Strip, this member of the Mandarin Oriental clan doesn't feature a casino on the property. And with only 392 guest rooms and suites, this hotel is practically a boutique compared to the Strip's monumental towers. But guests love the Mandarin Oriental's quiet and classy atmosphere and they don't mind leaving the hotel to hit the slots. The spacious rooms are particularly popular, filled with features like 42-inch flat-screen TVs, soaking tubs and separate showers, and the design aesthetic highlights sleek and subtle Asian-inspired touches. Another traveler favorite is the critically acclaimed spa, which guests say has some of the best masseuses on the Strip. You'll find the Mandarin Oriental tucked between the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino and the Shops at Crystals shopping complex, smack dab in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip.

    This Four Seasons Resort underwent a major renovation in 2016 that has impressed recent visitors. Guests say the staff here is consistently attentive and helpful, too. Guest rooms also receive high praise for their spacious floor plans and private balconies or patios. Accommodations also feature wireless internet, evening turndown service and luxury bath amenities. What's more, this Four Seasons is one of Maui's most kid-friendly locales, offering complimentary kids toiletries, a popular game room and kid-friendly menus in each of the three on-site restaurants. Those traveling without little ones can make the most of the resort's spa and the property's proximity to three scenic golf courses. Or, spend your days lounging on the island's shoreline where service staff will ensure you have enough ice water and towels to keep you feeling cool and comfortable. The only gripe guests had was the system to reserve a chair at the pool. As its name suggests, Maui's Four Seasons sits pretty on Wailea Beach.

    The first Four Seasons property to open at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, this resort – which sits about 6 miles southeast of the Magic Kingdom – aims to fill the park's luxury lodging void. And judging by its amenities, the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort appears to be succeeding. With its own 18-hole golf course, 13,000-square-foot spa and rooftop steakhouse, the Four Seasons Resort Orlando is well-suited for travelers who want easy access to the theme parks without the over-the-top kitsch associated with Disney-owned properties. That's not to say that the resort doesn't cater to little ones: The hotel also boasts a 242-foot-long waterslide, an 11,008-square-foot lazy river and the complimentary Kids For All Seasons kids camp. Plus, the Four Seasons Resort Orlando offers its own Disney character breakfasts, complimentary park shuttle service and a Disney Planning Center – a separate concierge desk designed for mapping out your park itinerary and purchasing tickets. Aside from its amenities, this Four Seasons excels in its accommodations, according to recent guests. Rooms are outfitted with large soaking tubs, flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Recent travelers especially appreciated the comfy beds and contemporary decor (think white furnishings with muted teal accents). And while visitors were impressed with their accommodations, they were not as pleased with the pricey nightly rates.

The cuisine at La Taverne was a big a hit for recent guests, as were drinks at the Pool Café: Visitors loved sipping their cocktails poolside while enjoying views of the Rockies and Cheyenne Lake.

    Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa is a little farther removed from the other luxury oceanfront properties of Palm Beach; as such, you can anticipate a little more privacy on your beach days.

The spacious guest rooms feature beachy yellow and blue hues, and amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi access, soaking tubs and balconies or terraces overlooking the resort grounds or ocean. Meanwhile, travelers say the treatments and service offered at the serene Eau Spa are worth the extra coin; or, you can get your R&R fix alongside one of the outdoor pools. Eau Palm Beach also offers diversions for children, like the AquaNuts kids program (with physical activities for those ages 5 to 12), or the COAST teens lounge, where young lodgers can learn how to DJ and or simply hang out.
