The Athens Group developed the 800-acre Hualalai Resort master-planned community on the Kona/Kohala coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. Hualalai Resort is anchored by an award-winning, five-star, 243-room Four Seasons resort hotel, an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed championship golf course, an 18-hole Tom Weiskopf-designed golf course and the Hualalai Sports Club and Spa. This development also includes a mix of luxury residential properties including luxury villas, town homes and custom homes. Since opening in late 1996, Four Seasons Resort Hualalai has been recognized in various magazines as the top resort and spa in the State of Hawaii. In October of 1999, it received the prestigious Urban Land Institute Award for Excellence. The ULI Award for Excellence jury stated, "Hualalai has influenced resort developers worldwide. Against an historic setting, it provides residents and vacationers with a natural environment that maintains an ecological balance.” In spring 2005, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) named Four Seasons Resort Hualalai a recipient of its annual awards for environmental responsibility, one of just 30 awards nationwide. Since the resort's opening in 1996, residential sales have exceeded $1 billion. For more information, please visit Four Seasons Hualalai
