The Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka’upulehu on the Big Island of Hawaii is the world’s best hotel, according to the 2012 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards. “The site of the hotel is beyond lovely—nestled on the shore among the blackened lava flows and banyan trees,” says one TripAdvisor traveler. “I can’t speak to the area around the resort, because it’s so beautiful that honestly, you don’t feel the desire to venture out.”
This amazing hotel is consistently rated among the best in the world, and was also recently named the best luxury beachside hotel in the US in the 2012 rankings by U.S. News & World Report. Read more
