Four Seasons sits near the site of an ancient Hawaiian village, which includes natural anachialine ponds. These ponds were fish farms, and provided water for drinking, cooking, and bathing.

The anachialine ponds are part sea water and part mountain spring water, pefect for fish and sea life. The King's Pond, seen here, is a natural pond, enlarged and reinforced with lava blocks. Hotel instructors give scuba and snorkeling lessons here from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., with free swimming from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The water's a little colder than the ocean, but you can snorkel and swim with the three eagle rays that live in the pond. The water is deep and the walls of the pond provide caves for the fish and rays.
