Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, the island’s only Forbes Five-Star resort, has a legacy of providing its loyal guests with the highest level of service and creating vacation memories that last a lifetime. To celebrate and commemorate the luxury Resort’s 25th anniversary, the Resort is asking Four Seasons current and former guests, employees and managers to contribute written memories, photographs and other memorabilia to place in a time capsule that will be buried at a ceremony on February 29, 2016. A garden setting adjacent to the signature Fountain Pool has been selected and the site will be marked by a plaque. The time capsule is slated to be opened at the Resort’s 50th anniversary in 2041.
“The best keeps getting better at Four Seasons Resort Maui,” says General Manager Jean Claude Wietzel. Over the past quarter century, the Resort has always retained its focus on creating a luxury experience and its five-star status, even as the country has undergone economic, political and social changes. “We pride ourselves in leading our managers and staff to continually innovate and evolve,” Wietzel adds, pointing out dramatic and highly acclaimed recent changes including the complete renovations of the two presidential suites, the largest suites in Maui; the introduction of Unforgettable Events and Experiences and a remake of the Fountain Pool and cabanas.
Looking back, he notes that when the Resort opened there was a disco, a health club, and the pool staff wore jackets and ties. “Can you imagine formal wear poolside in Maui?” quips Wietzel. Looking forward, he says he will have a major announcement later this year that will further evolve and transform the guest experience.
Predictions about the future from guests and employees will be the most fun to read. In 2041, will there be flying cars? Will the Resort be under a protective utopian bubble? The Resort is inviting those making submissions to let their imaginations run wild, likely to both amuse and inform those who open the time capsule.
The Resort is creating a “Day in the Life at Four Seasons Resort Maui,” with on-site photo ambassador Scott Miles, known as Mr. Smiles, capturing memorable images of the people, the place, the pleasures – from sun-up to sun-down – with all photographs compiled as part of the 25th anniversary commemoration.
The Resort is reaching out to everyone who has been a guest to submit their memories by February 20, 2016 in three distinct categories: memories of the past 25 years, the Resort present day, and predictions for the future.
The memories are going to be compiled in a memory book and placed in a hermetically sealed metal container along with other collected items of memorabilia. The Resort is also including stunning photography taken of the Resort and a video featuring all past general managers discussing the last 25 years and what the future holds for Four Seasons Resort Maui.
