Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina is a top pick when readers search for a luxury resort in Oahu. I know because it’s one of my most booked Hawaii properties. People like the typical five-star Four Seasons service and location away from the touristy island center.
Four Seasons Oahu offers 371 spacious rooms, suites, and deluxe suites, all exquisitely designed to make your stay perfect. It’s not as expansive as its sister Hawaiian properties, but there’s plenty to do for island hoppers or those staying put on Oahu for an extended stay.
Plus, you can make your vacation even more memorable with some extra benefits available when booking through me.
