Inventory levels still remain low at Hualalai Resort, but the great news is that among our current listings there are some tremendous opportunities for buyers. Among the listings are several villas in really terrific locations on Resort property, some recently renovated and all offering nice views and easy access to all Resort and Four Seasons amenities. In the meantime, exciting new releases are expected later this year. Stay tuned!

Sweet things have made it to the racks at Hualalai Resort’s Seaside Luxe Boutique this spring and we dare you to eat just one! After taste-testing thousands of gourmet candies in dozens of countries, the founders of Sugarfina – Rosie O’Neill and Josh Resnick – curated a collection of the finest, highest-quality candies from around the world.

This month we’re extending kudos to our partners at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai for promoting from within its own ranks! Two long-time culinary department top performers, Shaun Acosta and Angela Kenyon have been elevated to new positions for their outstanding performance over the years.

With a busy “Ski Week” – or in our case “Sun and Sand Week” – this month our office was busy! We continue to see strong interest and sales momentum as we move into March, and we anticipate an even busier Spring Break here at the Resort. Adding to the excitement, a number of new Members will be enjoying first-time stays at their homes here after closing on properties late in 2013 – a total of six families in March and April. Needless to say, we love welcoming new Members into our Hualalai ‘Ohana (family)! We look forward to seeing you here sometime soon.

Early on in 2014 we continue to see one of our most enduring trends – long-time Member’s discovering they want to spend more and more time at their Hualalai homes. Most often that means moving from luxury villas to spectacular homes for the additional space and privacy. It’s just another testament to what we’ve known for quite some time – once you experience life at Hualalai Resort, you only want more and more of it!

Clients often ask me, what really sets Hualalai Resort above and beyond the other luxury residential resorts along Hawaii Island’s Kona-Kohala Coast. It’s not a short answer! Perhaps one early Member of our Hualalai Ohana (family) summed it up best: “We came for the beauty of this special place, we stayed because of the people.” Many of our staff members have been here from the start, providing friendly, familiar faces – and service – to members and guests returning to their island homes.
