“Approaching the project with a residential eye, the team made sure the places guests use most – the lanai, sofa, and bed – are extremely comfortable and inviting… the design maintains the right balance – offering a timeless sense of place within a modern context.”Robert Whitfield

BAMO was hired to imbue Four Seasons Resort Hualalai with comfort and style that maintains the essence of Hawaii while preserving a sense of familiarity for those guests who view the resort as their home-away-from-home. BAMO’s scope included designing new luxury suites, renovating existing rooms, transforming the spa with open-air gardens balanced by cool interior spaces, and replacing an outdated bar with a contemporary and comfortable restaurant sited to better capture the views.
The result is a modern take on Hawaii’s Golden Age. Island motifs bring a sense of nostalgia to the clean-lined, natural furniture. Carefully selected fabrics, stones, and wood introduce texture and depth to the spaces. With an easy flow, both literal and visual, between outside and in, the spaces are fresh and the color palettes soothing.
