Four Seasons Resort Hualalai Introduces The New Adults-Only Palm Grove Pool

New Pool Experience is Inspired By the Elements and Overall Serenity

Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka'upulehu, the first and only AAA Five-Diamond and Forbes Five-Star resort on Hawai'i Island, introduces the Palm Grove Pool Experience. "We're renowned for our pools here, and our new Palm Grove Pool is yet another incredible experience our guests can enjoy during their stay with us," says Robert Whitfield, general manager of Four Seasons Resort Hualalai. "Everything from the design of the pool and its furnishings to the nature-inspired amenities and cocktails speak to our quest to continually set the bar higher when it comes to the world's best resort pool experiences."

The tension-edged saline/chlorine pool, measures approximately 40 ft. from its basalt entry steps to its ocean-facing crescent edge, and 50 ft. across. The Jacuzzi measures 8 ft. by 16 ft. and is set against a 2,500-sq. ft. deck, made from Brazilian ipe hardwood and basalt planking. Seating areas are composed of 24 chaise lounges by the pool, seven day beds in semi-private areas off the deck, and two hammocks. Miniature zen gardens are set on all chaise lounge side tables, while fragrant gardenia and plumeria surround the pool for a hint of natural aromatherapy.

All guests of Palm Grove are serviced with hourly poolside pampering, inspired by the elements: coconut water and aloe refresher shots (water), warm lava stone pressure point placement (fire), thermal mud hand and body lotion (earth) and organic aromatherapy-infused oshiburi towels (air.) Additionally, organic eye pillows with essential oils are offered, along with a rotating selection of infused waters, sunscreen, reading materials and wooden board games.

A swim-up bar and bench seating within the pool ensures prime locations for sampling the Resort's signature "adult shave ice" cocktails. Flavors range from Pineapple or Yuzu Margarita to Thyme Berri Cooler and Sake Pom-Tini. A selection of nature-inspired cocktails is offered, including the Green Tea Mojito and Peach Smash. All juices are fresh squeezed, while herbs for cocktails are grown poolside. A locally sourced menu features sushi, salads, wraps and sandwiches – overall, 75% of the Resort's food is from Hawai'i Island.
