Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina

A pristine paradise on Oahu's west coast
While most Oahu tourists and residents crowd Honolulu, Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina gives you a reason to venture to an under-the-radar part of the island. The Four Seasons’ first Oahu hotel is making the less-developed west side a hot destination for those in search of a pristine paradise — to the north, you’ll find Lanikuhonua nature preserve and to the south, Ko Olina Lagoons, four picturesque beach coves.

Deemed a sacred place, Ko Olina was a vacation spot for King Ka’mehameha. And it remains fit for royalty: Pacific, lagoon and pool vistas abound throughout the property, from most of the rooms to the restaurants; beautiful outdoor spaces invite you to linger and take in said views; a destination spa delivers Hawaiian-inspired therapies; and five restaurants cater to every taste (seafood, Italian, Asian, casual fare, café offerings).

The hotel-planned activities are a must here: Go stand-up paddleboarding in a calm lagoon, leap from the cliffs of Waimea Bay or explore Oahu by helicopter.
Our Inspector's Highlights
• The excellent Naupaka Spa & Wellness Centre entices with chic indoor and outdoor lounging spaces, a Himalayan salt chamber and Hawaiian treatments.

• The activities set this luxury hotel apart from the others. Learn to surf with a world champion or head to a private marina for a chartered cruise on the Four Seasons’ yacht.

• Don’t miss an astonishing sunset at the adult infinity pool. Admire it from a cabana, which comes with Beats headphones, a loaded Kindle, big-screen TVs, Bose speakers and a basket of Sun Bum sunscreen products.

• Every restaurant warrants a meal here, from Noe, a romantic setting with a trickling waterfall, river and Italian fine dining, to popular Waterman Bar & Grill, a casual spot serving lobster rolls and teriyaki hot dogs.

• Book an appointment at Caprice boutique and a saleswoman will pull Missoni resort wear, Figue gauzy dresses and more for you in the Missoni dressing room. Bonus: Try them on while sipping prosecco.
Things to Know
• Enjoy preferred tee times at the neighboring Ted Robinson-designed 18-hole course at Ko Olina Golf Club, home of the LGPA Lotte Championship. Take a free shuttle there.

• Children are welcome and have their own places to play, including two family pools, a kids club and teen center.

• If your flight time falls outside of check-in/checkout times, unwind in the Arrival & Departure Lounge, which offers showers, snacks and drinks and an all-day staff.

• As this is a less-populated part of the island, there aren’t many restaurants outside of the Hawaii hotel.
The Rooms
• Earth-toned rooms bear a modern island aesthetic. Local woods, woven rugs, banana-leaf headboards and a sprinkle of green palm prints give them a Hawaiian feel.

• All accommodations come with spacious, furnished lanais (or balconies).

• Elegant white marble bathrooms have separate tubs and glass-walled showers. You’ll find perfumed, paraben-free toiletries from Italian brand Ortigia.

• Oceanfront Deluxe Rooms sit on the ground level. Enter your own lush garden to take a dip in a private alfresco Jacuzzi.

• Our favorite rooms are the Penthouse, for its 17th-floor terrace with columns framing jaw-dropping views, and the fourth-floor Presidential Suite for its Sky Terrace, where staff can set up a bed so you can sleep under the stars.
The Restaurants
• No matter the time of day — be it an early lunch at Fish House, a late-afternoon snack at Waterman Bar & Grill or dinner at Noe, chef Ryo Takatsuka’s Amalfi-meets-aloha menu of pastas and proteins — there is something to sate you.

• There may not be a better dining experience on the island than the one at the well-rounded La Hiki Kitchen. In these tropical environs, you would expect the spicy, flavorful shrimp stir fry, but we promise that it serves one of the best Oreo milkshakes you’ve ever had.
