How to Have a Spectacular Day in Oahu, Hawaii

Sep 17, 2017

We asked Leea Evaimalo, who runs the concierge desk at the luxurious, year-old Four Seasons Resort at Ko Olina, to plan a special, singular day in Oahu...

Start by hiring a private chauffeur. First stop: brunch at Chinatown’s Scratch Kitchen & Bake Shop, followed by a drive to the Kalaeloa Airport, where your helicopter awaits.

After returning to the hotel, climb aboard the resort’s 75-foot private yacht for a four-hour cruise that explores secluded bays along Oahu’s leeward coast.

Once back on shore, end the day on a high note with a five-course meal, complete with chef-selected wine pairings, at Alan Wong’s in Honolulu.
