If you haven’t booked your summer vacation yet (shame on you!), we can inspire you with our pick of the eight best Four Season’s Resorts for your summer vacation.
Four Seasons Lanai
Hawaii was always going to come at the top of my list, and the Four Seasons Lanai sits on Manele Bay, which is the most perfect beach you can imagine. This hotel is ultra-exclusive, being on its own island, and is hard to beat.
Spend the day playing in the white sands of the secluded “Shipwreck Beach,” accessible only by 4×4 jeep, and snorkeling in the waters of Hulopoe Bay, a protected marine preserve. Then hike to Sweetheart Rock, 20 minutes from Four Seasons Resort Lanai, and stare into the glittering nighttime.
I am actually a fan of all the Four Season’s resorts in Hawaii. I don’t think life gets much better than a stay in one of these luxury gems. Do remember that our luxury travel concierge offers free upgrades, breakfasts and credit at all Four Seasons hotels.
Four Seasons Resort Nevis
Southeast of the Gulf of Mexico, the tropical Caribbean is home to more than 7,000 islands, islets, reefs, and cays. How do you choose the best? Nevis offers lovely beaches that are almost never crowded. You truly feel like you’re on a quiet, remote island away from the rest of the world.” On the north side of the island is a sweet spot, Lovers Beach, virtually hidden from the road.
Four Seasons Resort Nevis, West Indies, offers a tropical oasis located lifetimes away from the hustle and bustle of the Caribbean, flush with sugar-soft beaches and sweeping vistas of the rainforest. The perfect getaway.
Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora
These away-from-it-all volcanic islands boast sapphire waters surrounded by emerald mountains. Bora Bora, the land of “50 shades of blue” offers endless crystal clear waters. The overwater bungalows at Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora take the beach vacation to the next level, offering 360-degree views and complete immersion in the aquatic life.
Four Seasons Costa Rica
Though typically known for its vivid rainforests, South America and Central America can also claim some of the world’s most beautiful beaches.
No setting sun is more gorgeous than one dozily sinking behind the ocean, which is why Costa Rica is one of our favorite beaches at the day’s end. With warm gulf waters, pristine white sands, and tropical trees swaying inland, the Gulf of Papagayo is paradise. Four Seasons Costa Rica sits on a hillside by a picture-perfect beach and just up the peninsula from the Park Hyatt Papagayo. Find out our thoughts on the three best resorts in Papagayo.
Four Seasons Resort Seychelles
Just off the coast of East Africa lie the Seychelles, home to numerous beaches and nature reserves. Nature is awe-inspiring here. You may even catch a glimpse of a rare giant Aldabra tortoise.
Home to some of the best lesser-known snorkeling and diving spots, the islands off Africa are excellent options for your next beach getaway, and the Four Seasons Resort Seychelles makes the perfect luxury hotel in this magnificent location.
Four Seasons Resort Mauritius
Surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and basking in nearly year-round sunshine, Mauritius is an island paradise. At Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita, guests can enjoy three private beaches, with their choice of a beach sofa, palm tree hammock, or a sun lounger on the Resort’s private island.
Sail the turquoise sea, marvel at giant tortoises on the beach, play golf on a championship course, or just gaze at the glinting water outlined by the Bambou Mountains in the distance.
Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai
Lying in Vietnam’s cultural heartland, the tranquil kilometer-long stretch of beach in Hoi An has been deemed one of the world’s best beaches, and it’s also a relaxing perch from which to explore the country’s rich history.
Enjoy direct access to Ha My Beach from your suite at Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai in Hoi An, Vietnam. In between bouts of lazing in the sun, take an excursion to any of the three UNESCO heritage sites nearby: Hue’s imperial city, the temple sanctuary of My Son, and Hoi An’s enchanting lantern-lit streets.
Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat: A Four Seasons Hotel
OK, this one doesn’t have a beach. Instead, Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat: A Four Seasons Hote has an enormous pool on the edge of the Medditeran. You get to it by taking an air-conditioned glass lift down a cliff and are met by a glass of lemon water from the ever-helpful lounger staff. It’s straight out of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory but, being on the Cote D’Azur, has more style and glamour than any Hollywood movie. I spend a few nights here every single summer, and when my lottery numbers come up. I might just move here permanently. It’s that good!
