Four Seasons debuts global brand’s sole property on island; Introduces signature and Michelin-starred dining, historically inspired wedding chapel.
O'AHU, HAWAII – Ko Olina Resort, the 642-acre master-planned resort community on O'ahu's western shore, introduces a new level of luxury experience with the grand opening of the Four Seasons Resort O'ahu at Ko Olina.
This new luxury resort hotel is the crown jewel of Ko Olina, which aptly translates to "place of joy" in the native Hawaiian language. The 371 guest rooms and suites evoke a classic Hawaiian style, each with a private lanai terrace and nearly all with expansive ocean views that can be enjoyed from floor-to-ceiling windows. An exclusive new two-story oceanfront presidential suite offers a one-of-a-kind rooftop sky terrace with private staircase access.
The Four Seasons Resort O'ahu features three newly-designed signature restaurants: La Hiki, with six modern Pan-Asian cuisines inspired by local ingredients; Fish House, predicted to become O'ahu's premier line-to-table seafood restaurant on the edge of the resort's white-sand beach; and Noe, with two Michelin Stars restaurant Chef Ryo Takatsuka offering Italian dishes described as "Capri-meets-O'ahu."
Additional luxury experiences include a 35,000-square-foot spa and fitness complex with an ocean-view five-court Jim Courier tennis facility; family-friendly and adult pools with beach cabanas; two ballrooms; and five function rooms for business and social events of all sizes. The property also includes a new, historically inspired wedding chapel in Four Seasons' tropical gardens.
"We're proud to bring the internationally renowned Four Seasons experience to O'ahu and tie it to the Four Seasons properties on our neighbor islands," said Jeffrey R. Stone, President and Master Developer of The Resort Group. "This luxury resort adds casual elegance and refinement to Ko Olina and represents an investment of $500 million into the destination and the greater luxury market in Hawai'i. This new property has created 800 jobs and our Ko Olina International Hospitality training program presents an opportunity for existing employees and the local community to thrive professionally in our world-class resort."
