Oahu’s ruggedly beautiful leeward coast invites you to explore a new breed of bespoke island experiences. Whether you're in search of adventure or relaxation, we unveil the island's must-do experiences. Create unforgettable memories with exclusive access to people and places only available to our guests.
Realm of the Gods
- Embark on a spiritual journey to Ka‘ena Point, a remote nature reserve that harbours some of the last vestiges of coastal sand dune habitat on the island. Here, at the westernmost tip of Oahu, Kumu Hula La'akea Perry shares stories of the Leaping Rock, long held to be a sacred place where mortal souls make the final leap into the realm of the gods. An oli “Hâlau Wai’anae” is chanted to express love for Oahu's west side and the hula that follows tells the story of Hi’iaka (the favourite sister of Pele). A professional photographer or videographer is available to accompany this extraordinary journey.
Earth, Wind & Fire
- Climb aboard a luxurious Bell 470 helicopter for a once-in-a-lifetime private charter to Big Island to see one of the world’s most active volcanoes with exclusive access to the Hawaii Islands’ natural landmarks. In an action packed day trip from Ko Olina, up to six guests fly over scenic areas, including the cliffs on the coast of Molokai, black sand beaches in Kona, waterfalls on the lush Hamakua Coast, Pu’uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park and more. After landing at the Hawaiian Legacy Forest above the historic Umikoa Village to help replant endemic tree species, visit a local coffee plantation and enjoy a Chef’s Table with wine pairings.
Discover Your Ocean Playground
- Our new Sea Ray SLX 400 offers the ultimate in luxury, style and state-of-the-art technology as you'll fly alongside spinner dolphins and humpback whales with views of the majestic Waianae mountain range. Feel the thrill of the ride, slow down to soak in the sunset or slip into the water from the private dropdown swim terrace where you can snorkel and swim in pristine coastal waters against the backdrop of mystical Makua valley.
Dive with Navy Seals
- Slip beneath the vibrant blue seascape of west Oahu to explore reefs, caverns and wrecks with combat proven veteran US Navy SEALs. Hawaiian green sea turtles, spotted eagle rays, spinner dolphins and reef shark add to the wonder of the underwater landscape.
Ocean Sailing and Whale Watching on Ka’aumoana
- Under the direction of #FSWayfinder Nakoaokalani Prejean, experienced watermen and women guide Four Seasons guests in a multitude of open ocean experiences for all ages, departing directly from Four Seasons white sand beach cove. Each ocean journey highlights the mo’omeheu Hawai’i (Hawaiian culture) and the mo’olelo (history and stories) of Oahu’s leeward coast, led by certified ocean guides who share how traditional knowledge is practiced to protect the unspoiled natural beauty of West Oahu’s pristine marine environment – frequented by humpback whales, spinner dolphins and Hawaiian green sea turtles. Whale watching is seasonal from December to April.
Spa Under the Stars
- Slip away to a sensual night spa experience where the Resort’s luxurious Naupaka Spa & Wellness Centre is available exclusively to you and your loved one – with private access to hydrotherapy treatments including whirlpool, steam room, sauna and the Resort's rooftop lap pool. The magic of the Hawaiian night surrounds you as you are escorted to a candlelit oceanfront cabana for a truly transcendent experience, including side-by-side lomi lomi massages under a star lit sky. Afterward, discover the romance of the universe with a professional astronomer as a guide and magnificent views of the moon, planets and galaxies.
Taste of Oahu
- By Land
- Experience “social gastronomy” in a captivating five-course culinary experience and allow Chef Simeon Hall Jr. to feed your soul. As a pioneer in a class of culinary artists breathing new life into the farm-to-table movement, Chef Simeon showcases his innovative artisanal culinary following a tour of nearby Kahumana Farms. Curing, smoking, ageing, preserving, pickling and slow cooking are the hallmarks of an exciting island-born chef with one simple philosophy: “Cook as Mother Nature intended and as grandmothers Nola and Nay would have wanted.”
- By Sea
- James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Mina brings the bounty of fresh fish caught in pristine Hawaiian waters directly to the table at Mina's Fish House. There, the world’s first fish sommeliers accompany you on a line-to-table dining experience, shore or deep sea fishing and returning to Resort where Gyotaku artist Desmond Thien immortalizes the catch before turning it over to Executive Chef Garrick Mendoza to prepare a sumptuous five-course feast with wine pairings. Whole fish preparations feature ahi (big fin tuna), monchong (sickle pomfret), opah (moonfish), onaga (long tail red snapper) and opakapaka (pink snapper).
