Lanai City, HI

When the Four Seasons took over the management of the former Lodge at Koele (and the Manele Bay Resort, for that matter) in 2006, things started looking up, up, up. Not that they were down, but $50 million in capital improvements and staff retraining has a way of putting the shine back on a platinum band.

Let's be clear, though: Lanai is no Maui. It's a tiny island with only three...

Kailua-Kona, HI

The Four Seasons Hualalai is an oasis in the midst of paradise, a place designed to enhance its surroundings rather than compete with them. With panoramic views of dormant Mauna Kea on Hawaii's Big Island, the welcoming lobby, accented with rattan furnishings, is framed inside by mahogany rafters and a cool slate floor. From here, lushly landscaped walkways fringed by more tropical vegetation...

Honolulu, HI

Private white sands and beach butlers who deliver cool towels and mai tais, ten minutes from the heart of Waikiki (aka, a world away)? Yup. Too good to be true? Nope. After a gazillion-dollar renovation, the classic chandeliers still hover over the resort's grand lobby, but everything else (from Frette-draped memory foam beds to plush beach chairs) has morphed into a once-in-a-lifetime...

Kapalua, HI

In 2006, the five-star Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua was ranked the No. 1 golf resort in Hawaii by Travel+Leisure Golf. It's even more appealing today after a $180 million renovation in 2008 that remodeled rooms and suites and added a luxurious spa, fitness center, children's pool, and poolside cabanas. Set in 54 oceanfront acres, the resort is part of the 22,000-acre Kapalua Resort, a...

Hana, HI
If you really want to get away from it all and feel like true royalty, this is your ultimate resort. Maui's first resort when it opened in 1946, the Hotel Hana was completely restored in 2002 and is a regular stop-over for the jet set (Hillary Clinton loves the place). Located on the quiet, rainforest western tip of Maui, this elegantly luxe resort feels more like an inn. It's made up of...

Waikoloa, HI

A canal boat weaves through the overgrowth of ferns under a tall banyan tree and past a cascading waterfall. Swans, cranes, flamingos, even parrots can be seen along the shore. Then the boat comes to a stop and you disembark only to go snorkeling with neon-colored fish or go eyeball-to-eyeball with dolphins in the large lagoon. Afterwards, you shower and head to a luau to dine on kalua pig...

Kohala Coast, HI

Hugging the Big Island's volcanic Kohala Coast, The Fairmont Orchid offers an opportunity to be as far away from the real world—both physically and mentally—as you can allow yourself to be. To aid in that mission, the Orchid provides a healthy dose of luxury with a warm serving of hospitality.

The Orchid is a quick 20 miles north of Kona International Airport and encompasses...

Wailea, HI

The hotel overlooks the ocean and a heavenly white beach in Maui's upscale Wailea resort area, a serene enclave of residences, hotels, and three championship golf courses on the island's sunny southwest shore. The eight-story Four Seasons, built in a U-shape so that 80 percent of the 377 rooms have an ocean view, offers tropical elegance featuring marble and fine artwork. Even the pool...

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Mexico's Puerto Vallarta was first recognized by Americans as the romantic hangout of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Puerto Vallarta ("PV" to aficionados) is still a charming coastal village, but a major draw these days is golf—world-class golf by major designers. Golf to rival Los Cabos. Golf to put Mexico firmly ahead of Hawaii as North America's favorite golf destination....

Kohala Coast, HI

As we know, earthquakes are devastating. But when the Big Island was hit with one in October 2006 and the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel was forced to close for repairs, the owners chose to seize the opportunity. Lemons into lemonade. The classic Laurance S. Rockefeller property, built in 1965 and an architectural treasure, remains the same in all the essential ways. But $150 million goes a long way in...
