    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 3261 reviewsTripAdvisor (3261)
    Free WiFi

    Just northeast of Kekaha Kai State Park, the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is one of the most luxurious resorts on the Big Island.

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.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 5931 reviewsTripAdvisor (5931)
    Free WiFi

    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.

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 with the high room rates at this hotel, particularly during peak seasons. As its name suggests, Maui's Four Seasons sits pretty on Wailea Beach.

    Free WiFi

    The Kahala Hotel & Resort — located about 3 miles southwest of Diamond Head on the coast of the Kahala neighborhood — has played host to a long list of ritzy clients. Even lovebirds Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton came to stay at this Honolulu landmark after their marriage.

    Walking into the lobby of the Princeville Resort, you know immediately that you are at the top – the top of the hotel that is. That's where you'll find the lobby, affording jaw-dropping views of the ocean and Kauai's lush coast. Between Hanalei Bay and Kauai's rugged mountains, the resort's stunning location sets this property apart from the competition. According to previous visitors, the guest rooms are just as impressive: Princeville Resort forgoes the kitschy tropical decor in favor of decorative accents that touch upon the resort's natural surroundings with rich, earth tone color palettes. Rooms also come with home theater systems, 300-thread-count linens and, in some cases, balconies. The Princeville Resort also houses multiple distinct restaurants, all of which use ingredients that have been grown or produced on the island. And it's home to an incredible infinity pool – dubbed one of the world's most beautiful. Despite the properties world-class amenities, some past guests feel the Princeville Resort is in need of a refresh.

Aulani receives high praise from previous guests, who describe this Disney hotel as relaxed and lovely. Still, some travelers mention that the resort's remote location may not be the best for guests looking to experience the sights of Honolulu.

    Some say the Grand Hyatt's exceptional staff will make you feel right at home. However, your home probably doesn't have immaculately kept tropical grounds, a sand-bottomed lagoon pool or a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. This resort treats Kauai travelers to a relaxed getaway, with guest rooms outfitted with flat-screen TVs, complimentary refillable water bottles and private lanais (balconies). But you'll likely not be spending much time indoors, as the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort offers plenty in the way of island activities. On the property, you'll find several pools and lagoons worth laying by, as well as a variety of cultural performances taking place on any given day. Visitors enjoy indulging at the Anara Spa and teeing off on the gorgeous Po'ipu Bay Golf Course. And when it comes to dining, travelers say you really can't go wrong with the Grand Hyatt's restaurants, which serve up a variety of cuisines ranging from Hawaiian to Asian to Italian. The Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa is along the south coast of Kauai, east of Po'ipu Beach. Members of the Hyatt Rewards rewards program can earn and redeem points here, which helps offset the pricey hotel's nightly room rates.

    Perched on the eastern shore of Maui, The Travaasa Hana is the first resort on the island to see the sun rise. Not only that, but it is unapologetically Hawaiian. Guests are invited to explore local traditions like lei making and ukulele classes taught on-site by staff members. There's also the fact that the hotel doesn't just have a whirlpool — it has a lava rock whirlpool. And as far as technology goes, you won't find high-tech amenities in these guest rooms. That's right: no TVs, clocks or radios — with the exception of the Waikoloa Family Suites which feature a TV in the living room. Travaasa Hana's accommodations are designed to help you disconnect, featuring private hot tubs and spacious balconies. Guests especially enjoy staying here thanks to the hotel's all-inclusive rates; the cost of your room will also cover meals and spa treatments, if you're so inclined.

The Prince Waikiki also receives praise for its on-site facilities (which include a day spa and a pool) and its expansive golf course, which boasts 27 scenic holes.

    The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, Autograph Collection is one the Big Island's more historical properties: In the 1960s, the site was hand-picked by founder Laurance S. Rockefeller specifically for its beautiful crescent-shaped shoreline. Although most of the original architecture was battered in 2006 by an earthquake, the modern and sweeping redesign lends a sense of fresh and airy luxury to the hotel. Each of the 252 spacious rooms comes appointed with minifridges, flat-screen TVs and your very own lanai (Hawaiian for "veranda") off of the bedroom. Although this hotel may not be as flashy some of the Big Island's other luxury resorts, you will find a Robert Trent Jones, Sr. golf course, the full-service Mauna Kea Spa by Mandara and seaside tennis courts. The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel also boasts several restaurants, all of which serve up different island-inspired cuisine, but note that some require advanced reservations. Recent guests had glowing praise for the adjacent beach, one of the island's best, though the service throughout the hotel received mixed reviews. Keep in mind that Marriot Bonvoy members can use or redeem points by choosing to stay here.

Guest rooms here are also impressive: Each accommodation boasts its own private balcony, as well as a flat-screen TV and complimentary internet access. Although hotel rates here are already high, previous visitors highly recommend splurging on a room that faces the ocean, saying that the views are worth the lofty prices. Because this is a Waldorf Astoria resort, members of the Hilton Honors program can use points to cover the cost of an upgrade. That way, you can afford to splurge on a meal at the resort's super-scenic Humuhumunukunukuapua'a restaurant, which sits atop a saltwater lagoon.
