To get away without going too far, readers check in to the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai on the Big Island’s Kona Coast. The AAA Five Diamond resort provides every possible amenity—bungalow-style guest rooms, lava-rock showers, an award-wining sports club and spa, a Jack Nicklaus golf course and oceanfront dining. The resort recently completed a $2.2 million renovation of its keiki-friendly pool—one of five on the property—where it offers such free perks as sunglass cleaning, Evian spritz, fruit kabobs and even baby bottle-warmers.
