Centuries ago, intrepid travellers from Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands set out on a voyage thousands of miles long. The first island they discovered was the Big Island, the largest, youngest and grandest of all the Hawaiian Islands. This place of snow-capped mountains and erupting volcanoes was the focal point of subsequent expeditions by the explorers. The Big Island became the cradle of Hawaiian civilisation and produced the man who united all the warring islands under one rule: Kamehameha, who was born in the Kohala area around 1758.
Missionaries from New England arrived in the early 1800s, first coming ashore on the Big Island at Kailua-Kona. Their influence changed the course of Hawaiian history.
With a dramatic natural setting of azure ocean, white sand, black lava and lush green vegetation, Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is part of the exclusive Hualalai residential community on the North Kona Coast.
