The King’s Pond at Hualalai

The Four Seasons at Hualalai won multiple accolades this year via Trip Advisor. It was named the No. 1 overall hotel and best luxury hotel in the USA and the world. The hotel also received mentions for its service, nabbing the No. 5 spot on the list of U.S. hotels with best service, and the No. 25 spot for best service in the world.  It’s no surprise that the hotel and the resort itself offers guest some of the most unique and luxurious experiences during their stay.

One of the attractions at the Four Seasons that’s a stand out is The King’s Pond.

Travel & Leisure named The King’s Pond one of the “World’s Coolest Pools.”  According to their website, “The resort’s 1.8-million-gallon rock “aquarium” pool is inspired by Hawaii’s traditional anchialine ponds, landlocked bodies of water with subterranean connections to the ocean. Natural springs and ocean water feed into this man-made version, where guests swim alongside over 75 species of tropical fish and a spotted eagle ray.”

The King’s Pond offers regular Eagle Ray feedings, snorkeling lessons and a “fish circus” amongst the many activities you can enjoy with your family.  The 1.8 million gallon “pool” itself is sculpted out of 200-year old lava rock and hosts both native flora and fauna, with at  least 75 species of tropical fish swimming freely.
