Perched above the Pacific, Four Seasons Resort Lana’i at Manele Bay Hawaii presents an oceanside paradise bordering a protected marine preserve. Nestled in this almost entirely private island with just 30 miles of paved roads, Four Seasons Resort Lana’i is the gateway to your own private Hawaii.
The Resort’s 236 spacious guest rooms feature warm golden tones enhanced by tropical accents including wicker furnishings and fresh daily arrangements of gently scented local flowers. Each room opens to its own private terrace furnished with an inviting daybed and small dining table.
Laze on the white-sand beach below, snorkel amid spinner dolphins, or golf on two world-ranked courses. Explore this untouched island playground, and experience your own private Hawaii.
Evoking a relaxed island feel, the Resort’s 236 spacious guest rooms – including 21 suites – feature warm golden tones enhanced by rich cherry and rustic wicker furnishings along with tropical accents and East Asian influences. All rooms open to a private lanai – Hawaiian for a terrace or balcony – furnished with an inviting daybed, small dining table and two chairs. Views encompass lushly landscaped gardens or Hulopo‘e Bay and the Pacific Ocean.
Standard amenities include a rattan writing desk, dual-line telephones with voice mail, an entertainment centre with a 40-inch (101-centimetre) LCD television and DVD player, and high-speed Internet access.
Deeply comfortable Four Seasons beds feature a custom two-poster headboard with a hand-carved pineapple motif, the symbol of Lana‘i. Spacious bathrooms offer signature Four Seasons features: a marble double-basin vanity, deep soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower stall.
Delight the senses and soothe the soul at the Spa, where innovative body treatments, incorporating traditional Hawaiian techniques and local island ingredients, are offered alongside classical massages. The Spa’s 11 treatment rooms include red cedar dry heat saunas, eucalyptus steam rooms and rainforest showers. An extensive menu of facials, manicures and pedicures adds to the experience.
The Challenge at Manele
High above the crashing surf of Hulopo’e Bay, The Challenge at Manele is an outstanding course that more than lives up to its name. Built on lava outcroppings, the course features three holes on cliffs, which use the Pacific Ocean as a water hazard. The five-tee concept challenges the best golfers – tee shots over natural gorges and ravines must be precise.
Designed by Jack Nicklaus, this dramatic, unspoiled natural terrain is a stunning backdrop, and every hole offers majestic ocean views. The winter months bring spectacular sightings of whales right from the fairways.
There is no shortage of activities available to guests of Four Seasons Resort Lana’i at Manele Bay. Whether you crave a day at the beach or a real adventure, the Resort offers a range of land activities – from mountain biking to horseback riding – and all kinds of water adventures, including scuba diving and sailing.
