If the most pressing vacation question a guest is seeking is pool or beach, relax at the luxurious Four Seasons Resort Lanai, where one can do as much – or as little – as one desires. Sometimes, travellers just want a vacation where they can unplug and unwind, forget about day-to-day stresses and arrive with nothing on the agenda. Whether lazing poolside sipping a cool cocktail, enjoying lunch overlooking the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean or indulging in a pampering treatment in a serene and quiet spa, warm and welcoming Four Seasons service envelops guests nestled in this Hawaiian oasis.
Elevate the Lanai experience with Lanai Air, offering luxury air service connecting Oahu to the island of Lanai, complete with private hangar access. Any bookings made by September 30, 2021 include round-trip Honolulu flights on Lanai Air, for all guests in room. Inclusion is combinable with all offers; travel must be completed by January 31, 2022 (terms and conditions apply).
A lagoon-style, free-form central pool features a cascading waterfall and two spas. Set apart is the adults-only Retreat, whose waterfalls and lava rock grottos echo Lanai’s iconic cliffs. Delve further into the garden to find sublime sanctuaries, perfect for relaxing on secluded loungers and daybeds, available to reserve daily. Just steps from the Resort down the beach path sits stunning Hulopoe Bay, and the Resort’s idyllic stretch of white sand beach and clear, blue ocean. Pool and beach attendants regularly stop by to offer treats such as agave lemonade, frozen grapes or pineapple, fruit or coffee smoothies and personal water coolers to enhance a day in paradise.
Float and Snorkel
Right off the Resort’s beach is Hulopoe Bay, a protected marine preserve with some of the best snorkelling spots in Hawaii. The waters are crystal clear and the coral reefs are virtually undisturbed, attracting an abundance of colourful tropical fish. Spinner dolphins play in the Bay’s sparkling water, endangered green sea turtles are regular guests, and humpback whales are common during winter migration. Additionally, there are shallow tide pools alongside the rocky edges of the Bay where more sea life can be seen. The Resort’s beach kiosk offers complimentary snorkelling equipment, including snorkels, fins and masks, as well as prescription masks.
Allow experienced therapists to massage away tension with a Signature Hawanawana Spa massage; or infuse and invigorate body and spirit with the energy of Sibin Bian stone, organic essences and adaptogenic plant ingredients in a revitalising Island Vitality Ritual.
Hawanawana Spa, whose Hawaiian name translates to whispering ocean, offers a range of Spa and Salon services inspired by the blue waves just outside its door. Renewal begins upon entering the sanctuary and continues as therapists customise every treatment to create experiences that soothe mind, body and spirit.
While on Lanai, guests can journey away from the stresses of everyday life with a variety of complimentary outdoor wellness classes, including yoga on the beach, reiki and morning meditation. Or soak up some culture and history courtesy of the Resort’s Love Lanai cultural advisors, who host a number of complimentary demonstrations throughout the day from lei making and lauhala weaving to ukulele playing and Hawaiian language. Check the online calendar for class times and details, if the mood strikes.
The culinary team will ensure dining is a breeze – choose from a variety of open-air restaurants, including NOBU LANAI and poolside Malibu Farm or dine Under the Stars for a customised private experience overlooking the sea.
Of course, there are a number of adventures on land and sea – from horseback riding and off-road jeep tours to snorkel sails and golf – should the urge strike. Or just revel in relaxation and comfort along with a sense of utter seclusion on the pristine island of Lanai.
