Wine Country Residential
When the new Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley opens mid-year in Calistoga, guests and residents alike can expect to find upscale accoutrements including a winery and organic on-site vineyards (with a limited collection of wines produced on-site under the direction of, and in partnership with, Thomas Rivers Brown), along with a destination restaurant showcasing local flavors, multiple pools and a spa, and a street-side tasting room and general store, just to name a few.
As for the accommodations, the property will include 85 guestrooms and 20 private residence villas adorned in farmhouse-chic decor. “We will offer a five-star experience that blends luxury home ownership with Four Seasons’ legendary service and amenities,” says GM Mehdi Eftekari.
“Residents will enjoy unique offerings, coupled with spacious modern designs and stunning views of the resort vineyard and surrounding mountains. Of the two-, three- and four-bedroom homes, two remain on the market, starting at $4.5 million.”

Five years in the making, the contemporary new ‘Alohilani Resort delivers unparalleled experiences in the heart of Waikiki Beach following a $125 million makeover.
“Everywhere our guests look, they are met with awe-inspiring features,” says Vann Avedisian, principal of Highgate Hotels, “from the seascape infinity pool deck, to two exclusive dining options by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, a mesmerizing reimagined 280,000-gallon Oceanarium that houses more than 1,000 indigenous marine animals, and guest rooms that have been transformed into an airy and serene space with private lanais overlooking the Pacific.”
Formerly the Pacific Beach Hotel, the new property on fashionable Kalakaua Avenue has been transformed into a sophisticated venue that pays homage to Hawaii’s rich cultural heritage, complete with Rockwell Group-designed spaces that include pillars clad in basket-woven teak and a custom coral wall sculpture by artist Nina Helms in the reception area, as well as locally inspired surf and sand experiences.
