From dining under the stars as the surf crashes at your feet, to a tour of our on-property oyster farm, our Resort offers activities that highlight the island’s incredible bounty for food lovers.

Dining Highlights

  • Plate of half shell oysters, lemons on ice
    Hualalai Seafood Experience

    Sip Champagne and taste freshly harvested oysters as a Resort Marine Naturalist takes you on a behind-the-scenes tour of our unique oyster farming process. The tour then leads to the Resort’s Herb Garden, where a chef shares the interworkings of Four Seasons Resort Hualalai’s hyper-local food and beverage philosophy, and invites guests to catch a Pacific White Shrimp from the shrimp pens. The experience concludes at ‘Ulu Ocean Grill, where you can enjoy a five-course custom meal featuring the Resort’s oysters and shrimp, as well as other local produce and seafood. Available seasonally.

    Private Cooking Class and Garden Tour

    A Resort chef takes you on the ultimate garden-to-table experience. Discover the fresh Hawaii Island produce growing in our own garden before your chef leads you through a back-to-basics cooking class and helps you prepare a delectable meal.

  • Omakase Experience

    Omakase is to dine while entrusting your meal to the Chef. The omakase experience at ‘ULU Ocean Grill + Sushi Lounge is a multi-course meal that is a contemporary and reflective experience of Hawaii Island. Combining ingredients, both local and Japanese, with traditional preparations and a touch of modernity, courses will transition from an array of otsumami (small dishes) to sushi.

  • Wine Tasting and Pairing Class

    Join ‘ULU General Manager Paul Jennette as he guides you through a wine tasting journey. Whether you are just igniting your interest in wine or are already an aficionado, Paul will provide an opportunity to refine your knowledge and enjoy the delicate process of wine tasting.
