An Icon on the Exclusive Kona-Kohala Coast, Hualālai Resort’s Latest Milestone Speaks to its Continued Success Since its Inception in 1996

HAWAI` Hualālai Resort, a private luxury resort community nestled on the exclusive Kona-Kohala Coast of Hawai’i Island, proudly announces its latest milestone of reaching over $284 million in residential sales in 2021 to-date with $3 million currently under contract. Timed to the resort’s 25th anniversary, this announcement marks Hualālai’s best year on record, garnering $3.3 billion in total sales since its first residential property sale in 1996. Spanning 865 acres, the resort offers an unmatched lifestyle, anchored by state-of-the-art facilities, programming and amenities and access to the award-winning Four Seasons Resort Hualālai.

“Hualālai Resort is truly a special place and over the past 25 years, the community has become an established leader in luxury Hawai`i real estate. This tremendous achievement not only speaks to the team’s expertise, but also to the incomparable lifestyle and sense of aloha offered at the resort,” says Rob Kildow, Principal Broker and Director of Sales for Hualālai Realty. “The past year and a half has led people to reevaluate their values from spending more time with loved ones, to living in proximity to outdoor pursuits. As such, Hualālai’s residential offerings and amenities resonate with buyer’s purchasing priorities more than ever.”

Hualālai is comprised of single-family homes, villas, and town homes that reflect the architecture and essence of Hawaiian living—all with sweeping ocean and golf course views. The layout of Hualālai is divided into intimate neighborhoods developed to provide low-density, low-rise communities. Homes at Hualālai adopt the time-honored architecture of the Hawaiian kauhale (group of Hawaiian homes), designed with natural materials and offer indoor-outdoor living with sliding pocket doors leading to spacious, private lānai.

Among the 19 single family homes and 22 condominiums that closed this year is the standout 72-208 Waiulu Street listing, purchased at $30.2 million. The highest priced home ever to be sold at Hualālai, this custom designed residence overlooks the 16th and 17th hole of the Hualālai Golf Course showcasing incredible, unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean. Featuring six bedrooms, six bathrooms and two powder rooms, every design and structural detail of the residence has been meticulously considered to not only ensure proper functionality, but also to enhance the living experience for the homeowners and their guests. Cornerless sliding doors in the great room, library, kitchen and primary bedroom open onto the large covered lānai and expansive pool area, unveiling a 25-meter infinity lap pool. Additional features include a commercial-grade kitchen designed by world-renowned kitchen designer Mark-Stech Novak, five impressive fireplaces and a wine cellar inspired by an iconic Las Vegas restaurant.

Beyond real estate, buyers are attracted to the full range of five-star hotel amenities and outdoor activities offered at the resort. The exclusive luxury residential community abounds with state-of the art amenities including an award-winning sports club; Hualālai Spa; the Hualālai Canoe Club; the Hualālai Golf Course and Hualālai’s Members-only 18-hole Tom Weiskopf-designed Ke`olu golf course. The Hualālai Golf Course recently completed a transformation with the reshaping of greens and bunkers and a conversion to Platinum Paspalum turf, significantly enhancing the year-round playing conditions. Additionally, Hualālai also introduced the Hualālai Golf Hale—a 3,000 square-foot instruction and practice facility—offering Members and guests exclusive programming to improve their golf game with state-of-the-art technology.

Aside from the Members-only amenities, homeowners also have access to Four Seasons Resort Hualālai and the resort’s array of offerings, from the restaurants to the pools, spa and more. Recently, Four Seasons Resort Hualālai introduced a $100+ million property-wide transformation, marking the resort’s largest renovation since its debut, contemporizing its aesthetic while holding onto the essence of Hualālai’s authentic Hawaiian architecture and design. This includes the enhancement of all 249 guest rooms and suites; a new, elevated infinity pool and lounge deck at King’s Pond, Hualālai’s 1.8-million-gallon swimmable aquarium; the introduction of the Kumu Kai Marine Center, home to five on-staff Marine Scientists who lead a curriculum of marine life experiences and more. The renovation concluded in October with the unveiling of three redesigned and expanded villas—Hawai`i Loa Presidential Villa, Makaloa Villa and Ho`onanea Villa—now offering the largest and most luxurious villa product in all of Hawai`i. These reimagined villas are ideal for multigenerational travelers seeking space and privacy, ushering in a whole new level of luxury and comfort.
