Hawaii: New Features of Five-Star Island Properties

Hawaii seems to be on every traveler’s radar this year, and popularity continues to grow as the Zika virus makes trips to the Caribbean less appealing. Yet we have to admit: Hawaii is quite a journey for East-Coasters. A twelve-hour flight to reach an island from New York has never been the best usage of time for discerning travelers. And in the spirit of honesty, many of the luxury five-star properties are tired, dated and largely not considered worth the trek. Here is some some information on the newest features of each property to help make the long journey worth your while.

The Four Seasons Maui is certainly a good choice if you wish to stay in plush accommodations on this island. Most notable are the recent upgraded cabanas near the adult pool, which have been outfitted by Missoni. The service is quite good, though Maui remains more on the side of the party scene.

Hualalai, the Big Island, is a must for anyone looking to experience Hawaii’s amazing volcanic activity and mind-blowing landscapes. We typically organize helicopter journeys throughout the island, and recommend Four Seasons Hualalai to rest your head at night. The property will be renovating its suites shortly and the restaurant, ‘Ulu Ocean Grill, is popular with the locals as one of the best eateries around.

We are eagerly awaiting the opening of Timbers Resorts Kauai property. From the looks of the renderings, and what we’ve heard from industry friends, the property should be remarkable. An amazing golf course is also in the works, making this an excellent choice for Kauai compared to the tired-looking St. Regis Princeville.

Oahu’s newest gem is the Four Seasons at Ko Olina. The sunny island’s coast offers a typical adventurous side of Hawaii, coupled with all the modern luxuries one would expect of a five-star resort. We recommend this side of the island for its beautiful beaches, new shops and restaurants. It’s especially suggested for those who have “been there and done that” in Honolulu. Its proximity to the airport makes it the perfect pre- and post-place to stay.
