Formerly a JW Marriott property, this fully renovated resort is one of the island’s most upscale and multi-faceted, with enough space and amenities to cater to honeymooning couples, families seeking kid-friendly services, or groups of friends on an active getaway. A highlight of the property is a vast wellness center offering traditional Hawaiian treatments and a 10,000-square-foot fitness complex with five tennis courts. Oahu has no shortage of outdoor entertainment, from deep-sea fishing to surfing and cliff jumping, all of which can be booked through the Four Seasons’ concierges.
The resort’s 371 spacious rooms, averaging more than 600 square feet, have a polished yet easygoing look defined by comfortable contemporary furnishings in neutral colors and a smattering of rustic elements like wooden slats on the walls and carpets simulating jute. Nearly all of them face the Pacific Ocean, seen through vast windows and balconies. Other nice bonuses: tech elements like iPads from which to order room service and electronic toilets inside the spa-like marble bathrooms.
Seafood features prominently at the hotel’s five restaurants and lounges (all with open-air seating and either ocean or pool views), especially at the beachfront Fish House, where the menu of Hawaiian grilled lobster, baked oysters, and fish sandwiches goes hand in hand with a toes-in-the-sand vibe. Elsewhere on the property, Noe serves handmade pastas, La Hiki specializes in pan-Asian small plates, and Waterman Bar & Grill offers light lunches inspired by local food-truck fare.
Set within the 642-acre Ko Olina resort community in western Oahu, an upscale suburban area with a golf club and private marina, the hotel is conveniently located less than 20 miles away from Honolulu International Airport.
How to Get There
If you are looking for a peaceful and spacious hideaway on O'ahu, check out the Four Seasons hotel. Attention given to the atmosphere and service of the hotel with many activities and the beautiful Pacific Ocean at your feet to enjoy.
The Four Seasons at Koolina is an outstanding property and made even better by the wonderful staff. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others. The atmosphere was very inviting and warm but not touristy. The location is beautiful and quiet unlike the crowded, chaotic situation in Waikiki.
excellent service. personalized greetings. obviously, superior facilities. expensive but worth the price. highly recommended. the best in Hawaii. far enough away from downtown to be like a destination resort.
The Four Seasons at Ko Olina has become a frequent spot for my wife and I with two long trips in the last six months. We love the location, amenities, the stunning adult pool, but above all else, the wonderful team that delivers amazing personalized service.
My wife and I stay at luxury hotels when we travel, and as such we have very high expectations, and this Four Seasons consistently delivers. From proactive visits with managers, little extras that go a long way, to the consistent smiles and warm greetings from all employees, combine to make this our current top destination.
The resort itself is fantastic, with large rooms that are really well designed with quality throughout. The beds are amazingly comfortable, bathrooms large and well appointed, and we love the private lanais that add to the spacious rooms. The pools are great, in particular the adult pool.
The adult pool earns its own mention as it is the best we’ve found in all our travels. The pool itself is large and heated perfectly, but it is the picturesque view of the ocean while in the pool and on the deck that makes this such a differentiator. We even saw many whales from the pool which was quite the experience. Add to the setting a pool service team that looks after whatever you need with towels, fresh water, sunscreen, and even an afternoon visit from “Dr. Mai Tai.”
To be fair, on our most recent trip there were a couple issues that impacted our stay, which had more to do with a couple large corporate visitors and not the employees or the resort itself. However, I am giving a 5 star review as the team responded quickly and meaningfully to our concerns, which helped us leave feeling really good about our stay.
Thank You to Patrick, Alex, Doug, Russell at La Hiki, Chris at Noe, and Graham for another memorable stay, hope to see you soon!
One of the best trips of our lives. Hawaii was a far trip for us and we are glad we went with the Four Seasons, it only added to the overall experience! The pool is amazing, the burgers delicious, and we each had the best sleep of our lives. I’d spring for an ocean view room, we could see the sunset from our lanai. Be sure to stop by the Hokule’a bar, the drinks are great and the bartenders, particularly Chad and Ari, are helpful, warm, and overall lovely people.
