Hualalai Resort - Historical Significance with Luxurious Results


At Historic Kaupulehu - Hualalai Resort, time almost stands still. “Hualalai” is considered the middle child of the five Big Island mountains. Not the newest and not the oldest, but yet powerful in it’s ascending slopes towards the shoreline. It’s beauty and presence sweeps down from 8,271 feet in height and offers much to see with it’s cones, craters, and dryland forests. Wisdom and great meaning continue to flow and spread throughout Hawaiian culture and history. It is only fitting for us to realize that our time here on earth is borrowed and this resort reminds us of that. For those who have had the pleasure of traveling the world over, many of them know that there is something secretly tasteful and special about Hualalai Resort. For those lucky enough to afford it, a purchase within this gated community becomes even that much more attractive.


With spectacular ocean views, fine dining, and amenities to rival all others, this is the getaway for the ultra wealthy. At Hualalai Resort you will find real estate from villas, custom single family homes, and even vacant land being offered. “E Ola” means, “May There Be Life.” A simple way of putting it yet there is much truth behind the meaning. There are also other prominent places nearby such as Kukio Bay, Kiholo Bay, and Kona Village Resort. These certainly help with providing the adventurous few to continue to explore the surroundings. The resort’s design has been well thought out and is managed with only the best ideas and services in mind. For example, when staying in the Fours Seasons Hotel it is not uncommon for guest services to call you by name. This added touch is just one simple compliment that can make someones day feel even better. Some may consider it hyperbole when they hear their friends describe their experience. Truth be told, there is a reason Hualalai Resort has been rated as one of the top destinations in the world by Conde Nast Traveler. 


Owners are offered several high class private options for dining and membership privileges. With a relaxing oasis dispersed throughout the resort’s grounds, you can spend time snorkeling with manta rays, surfing in the ocean, or enjoying a round of golf on one of the best maintained courses in the U.S. Guests also have access to resort style swimming pools and unwinding for an evening in hot tubs adjacent to the swimming areas. If a game of tennis is something you desire there are several tennis pros on staff ready to provide private, semi, and group lessons. Life at Hualalai whether living or visiting comes with an assurance that may not be offered at other luxurious destinations in the world. This stand alone vision is what makes the real estate here so highly desirable. Resale villas currently offered start in the $1.4 Million+ range, while actively listed homes are also being offered in the $4 Million+ plus range. Two of the finest listings currently available on the market in the MLS are presently listed for $11,495,000 and $12,500,000.

Timeless Architectural Masterpiece Coupled with Mauna Kea’s Rich Resort History - Big Island's Finest


Every so often, a beautiful one of a kind structure is brought before our eyes. This process involves years of innovation complimented by a deep desire to accomplish only the best. An exclusive new listing is being offered for those who seek a once in a lifetime opportunity. An immaculate custom estate with elegant craftsmanship and exceptional finishes. Spanning approx. 10,000 sq. ft. of air conditioned space, this spectacular 6 bedroom custom home leaves us with nothing else to be imagined. Cumaru, Cedar, Ipe, and Teak include just a few of fine exotic finishes displayed throughout. A wonderful and flowing floor plan adds to the magic that can truly only be experienced in person.


A Hawaiian dream home designed by award-winning Big Island architect Mark de Reus. Beautiful swimming pool with waterways are featured at every turn. To top it all off the cascading waterfall lit in the evening with stunning sunsets in the horizon can’t be beat or matched. The Kohala Coast is home to some of the most intriguing luxury homes available anywhere in the world. What makes this one so enticing is it’s location within the private gated enclave of Mauna Kea Resort. Tennis, golf, and fine dining are all available within minutes. A forever ocean view lasting from dawn till dusk is only just the beginning.


Little did we know and soon after Hawaii became the country’s 50th state, Laurance Rockefeller would set foot on Mauna Kea’s famous crescent beach. Completed in 1965 Mauna Kea Beach Hotel was completed and considered the finest hotel in the world at the time. Famous celebrities, business moguls, and diplomatics simply had to come and see for themselves. In keeping with a design favorable to preserving the beauty of the land, Rockefeller was sure to meet the challenges of responsible land development. 


Kauana’oa Bay today is known as one of the best hidden luxury resort secrets on the planet. For those lucky enough to experience even a day at the beach here, will leave them wondering if this could truly be heaven on earth. Today the resort has gone through wonderful improvements and the fine artwork from the West, Asia, and Oceania is proudly on display. Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill produced this architectural vision and are also known for their work behind some of the best American structures during this last century. One such example is the skylit atrium at the resort’s entrance surrounded by it’s interrelated wings. Overlooking the beach from the main upstairs lobby, is a sight to remember and to never forget. An elegance personified by Hawaii’s most sought after lifestyle, the Kohala Coast.

Big Island of Hawaii is a Playground Meca for the World's Mega Wealthy

Kukio, Hualalai, Mauna Kea, and Mauna Lani - 4 of the Finest and Best Choices

When it comes to finding places the world over that offer exclusive activities such as snorkeling in lagoons, swimming under tropical waterfalls, and opening up a fresh coconut with your hands using a rock, the Big Island of Hawaii has it all. As tranquil as that all sounds, there is even more to this fantasy tale life. For example, where else in the world can you go surfing in the morning and snowboarding in the afternoon? Only on the Big Island and maybe a handful of other special unique places if even. The island chain of Hawaii was first settled 400 C.E. when Polynesians first discovered then and way before Captain James Cook. In 1778 his time came as well for what has gone down in the history books as one of the greatest discoveries ever made.  To this day the monument of Captain James Cook is still standing strong down in South Kona at Kealakekua Bay.

The shores along the vivid ocean hues of Kukio Bay, Hualalai, and Kua Bay are some of the most enticing pieces of beach in the entire country. Visitors swarm Kailua Kona and the Big Island for a short glimpse into a world that remains unspoiled and untouched for the most part. Development is inevitable as the human population numbers continue to increase. However, on the Big Island of Hawaii one thing that remains the same, is that the thirst for rapid development is controlled to the best of it's ability by not overbuilding too fast and without little thought. Many years go into ensuring that high quality real estate is offered with beautiful finishes and for the infrastructure surrounding it, the same can be said. Once in a while there comes along a feeling of knowing that you live in the best place in the world. On the Big Island that feeling is happening more often than not. 

The wealthiest business men and women this country has seen, will typically have a second or third home in a different state or country. Hawaii is considered a haven by some of these individuals because it offers quick airport access and the security of knowing you are still on US owned land. Kukio real estate is an example of one of if not the best island luxury getaways on the planet. The current population of the Big Island is still well below most other highly populated second home locations. For example, Florida as beautiful as it may be, can become very busy with traffic and visitors in the winter months. The Big Island still feels very exclusive and remote at any time of the year. The rich and famous are looking more now than ever for a place to be left alone and in privacy. The only question is which of them will choose to be here or not. We prefer to lean on the side of why not?

Our Best Wishes to Fellow Canadians Traveling to Hawaii's Big Island July 2020

Happy Canada Day From Hawaii's Kohala Coast July 1, 2020

In a world that needs unity more then ever we take the time to thank all of the wonderful Canadians who continue to call the Big Island home and all those who visit as well. This year the economy was off to an outstanding start and continued market rise until the world pandemic hit. The one great place to still call home and feel safe is the Big Island. The state of Hawaii has seen it's economy obviously affected by all of this but it too will pass and the world will continue to move along. For luxury buyers who have always wanted to purchase a resort home on the Kohala Coast in Hualalai, Kukio, Mauna Lani, or Mauna Kea - this might just be the time to do it.

New listings continue to come on the market and sellers are starting to realize that if their home is not simply amazing, they may need to be a bit more patient during this cycle. The good news is that even though unemployment is at higher than usual levels, there have been some positive signs to a potential turnaround in the distance. One of the best real estate offerings in the world still remains the Big Island Gold Coast, Kailua Kona to Kohala. Along the immaculate shores of white sand beaches, are some of the most exotic oceanfront estates and highly prized trophy properties available anywhere in the world.

Hawaii's Big Island is a very special place. Some will never be able to come here to see what it truly is. Those who have already discovered it know that it keeps them coming back year after year. Canadians, especially those from British Columbia and Alberta seem to already have come to grips with knowing that the island of Hawaii is a gem not to be taken for granted. With direct flights coming in daily to Kona Airport it is not wonder that travel is appealing to those coming from abroad. Worldwide beach homes scattered along remote shores are becoming somewhat of a very sought after product by those who only expect the best of everything. Hawaii's luxurious tropical coast offers all of that and more.
