Our Favorite Shop-Small Destinations of the Year

The Four Seasons is known for its five-star service and Hawaii has always had a reputation for being exquisitely romantic (it’s a top honeymoon destination for a reason). Now, the Four Seasons Hualalai has taken advantage of both with the launch of the Couples’ Nest at the Palm Grove Pool; a romantic poolside experience with a Hawaiian flare.
The Couples’ Nest was designed to bring the storied Four Seasons guest room experience outdoors, offering customizable mattresses to lounge on while you sip cocktails made with native Hawaiian flavors; from a classic Mai Tai to the newly-conceived Break Five-0, complete with a Lilikoi (Hawaii’s passion fruit) puree. Your oversized bed-like chase also comes with a fully-stocked mini fridge replete with resident specialties like Kona cold brew coffee for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. And you won’t need to leave your little private oasis if you get hungry; you can order from the full lunch menu at the nearest poolside restaurant.
If you're looking for even more relaxation, opt for the "Amour Package," which includes a selection of spa treatments influenced by ancient Hawaiian rituals—like the Pono Lomi Lomi massage, which uses traditional Lomi Lomi sticks made from guava wood for a deep tissue effect. And the best part—there’s still no need to venture too far away from your comfortable corner in the sun. You can enjoy these treatments right from love your nest.
Be sure to try and reserve your Couples’ Nest package as soon as you book your hotel room. And I recommend requesting Nest 1 or 2 for a little more privacy; they’re tucked away behind the Palm Grove pool and surrounded by lush tropical trees, while still hosting an ocean view. But if you prefer your feet closer to the sand 3, 4, and 5 offer all the same luxuries. fourseasons.com
