Four Seasons Resort Lanai, on a 90,000-acre secluded island just nine miles from Maui, is now celebrating its grand opening. 

In a Hawaiian blessing ceremony, Lawrence J. Ellison, owner, Four Seasons Resorts Lanai, and Isadore Sharp, Founder and Chairman, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts; were joined by Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa, local dignitaries, community members, and employees to untie the sacred, mana-filled lei and officially open the Resort. 

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 Lanai, VIEWS at Manele Golf and Sports Bar; an immersive spa and wellness program; luxury retail boutiques featuring Missoni, Jimmy Choo, and the Lanai Collection; plus the highly regarded, 18-hole ocean-view Jack NicklausSignature 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.

Verdant botanical gardens and waterways 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. Delve further into the garden to find sublime sanctuaries perfect for relaxing on secluded chaises and daybeds.
