Shawn Hallum


“I am passionate about international travel. I love finding places with a French vibe so that I can practice my language skills. While Barcelona and Kyoto are in my top three (destinations), my favorite will always be Positano, Italy.”
“I enjoy helping people find ways to live more fulfilling, productive, and healthier lives"

Director of Spa and Wellness, Four Seasons Oahu at Ko' Olina

When asked for three words he would use to describe himself, Shawn Hallum said intuitive, passionate and interested.

“I enjoy helping people find ways to live more fulfilling, productive, and healthier lives. I've been told that I ask the right questions.  I'm also a self-proclaimed child and dog whisperer -  both seem to instantly connect with me!”

The Director of Spa and Wellness for Four Seasons Oahu at Ko`Olina has taken being “interested” to a new level, with three different degrees from three different schools – an Associate Degree in Business Administration from Metropolitan College of New York, a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sports Management and Health Promotion from California University of Pennsylvania, and a Master of Science in Complementary Alternative Medicine from American College of Healthcare Sciences. He is also the Spa Program Department Chair and a professor at American College of Healthcare Sciences.

Even with all that education under his belt, he says his proudest accomplishment so far is his marriage of more than 20 years and is the reason he ended up in New York for a period of time.

“We met while I was working as a purser on a cruise ship - he was vacationing with his entire family! My husband (then boyfriend) is a physician, but also a Broadway theatre producer. He lived in New York, so I took roots there, too.  You also can’t beat New York’s vibe - the diversity, the culture...”

While his professional travel is currently limited to what he describes as “island hopping” now that he lives in Maui, Shawn loves to travel in his personal life.

“I am passionate about international travel. I love finding places with a French vibe so that I can practice my language skills. While Barcelona and Kyoto are in my top three (destinations), my favorite will always be Positano, Italy.”
