If you are seeking the perfect getaway from it all then consider the newly opened Four Seasons Resort Lanai, located on a 90,000- acre secluded island.
The new Resort features 217 guestrooms including 51 suites, lobbies, and seating areas for contemplation; multiple dining experiences such as the signature ONE FORTY, NOBU LANA'I, VIEWS at Manele Golf and Sports Bar; an immersive spa and wellness program; luxury retail boutiques featuring Missoni, Jimmy Choo, and the Lana'i Collection; plus the highly regarded, 18-hole ocean-view Jack Nicklaus Signature Manele Golf Course.
Inspired by Hawaii's diverse influences, the redesigned interiors feature walls of teak and zebra wood edging artisan-produced Nepalese Lokta paper and mahogany floors laid with wool hand-woven area rugs. Fully integrated and intuitive lighting, temperature, service, and privacy controls offer a highly responsive in-room technology experience that also includes a 75-inch, platinum-bezel LED television panel, in-room iPad Airs, wearable key wristbands that allow guests maximum flexibility, and more.
Throughout the property you'll find botanical gardens and waterways that create intimate enclaves as well as spectacular vistas of the Pacific Ocean, while serving as beautiful backdrops for works of outdoor art and sculpture. A lagoon-style, free-form pool features a cascading waterfall and two spas. Set apart is the adults-only Retreat with waterfalls and lava-rock grottos that echo Lanai's iconic cliffs and offer stunning views of Hulopoe Bay, where resident dolphins are a frequent sight. Dr. Beach gave Hulopoe Beach the title of America's best beach in 1997.
"We are delighted to share a unique destination experience that has rich culture, diverse landscapes, and limitless options for relaxation and adventure here on Lana'i," said Tom Roelens, General Manager, Four Seasons Resorts Lana'i. "We offer guests the opportunity to experience Lana'i by Four Seasons through a number of activities curated by the Resort, in true Four Seasons style."
For adventurous Lanai offers visitors the opportunity to hike and horseback ride in green upcountry lands, take to the off-road in a UTV, snorkel in a marine sanctuary teeming with colorful fish or relax on a luxury sailing yacht as you cruise among whales and dolphin.
For the golfer the Jack Nicklaus Signature Designed Manele Golf Course rises high above the crashing surf of Hulopoe Bay. Manele is considered one of Hawaii's premiere layouts, with a reputation for excellence in design and playability.
