Great news from the Big Island: Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka‘ūpūlehu, the first and only AAA Five-Diamond and Forbes Five-Star resort on Hawaii Island, will reopen tomorrow, April 30, following a six-week closure caused by the recent earthquake-generated tsunami in Japan.

“We are thrilled to reopen our resort following this closure,” general manager Robert Whitfield said in a statement. “I can’t say enough about the dedication of our staff, and the support from our guests through this period.”

Certain areas were affected by the storm surge, which brought water, sand and debris onto the grounds. Mainly affected were pool areas, landscaping, a restaurant and 12 guest rooms and suites. All areas were repaired to new quality, including the addition of new lawns, landscaping and oceanfront paths throughout the public areas and an enhanced beach. New beach furniture, additional oceanfront seating at Pahu i’a restaurant, enhanced views from some rooms and suites as well as the addition of private outdoor patios and lawns to some rooms and suites complete the physical enhancements.

Resort staff were kept on in entirety and paid with benefits throughout the closure. In addition to being instrumental in clean-up efforts, staff also took part in additional service training through the closure.

To celebrate its reopening, the resort is offering its Sixth Night Free package (providing guests with a complimentary sixth night) and its Bring a Friend package (50 percent off a second room for friends or family) through July 21.
