Aloha! I hope you enjoyed scrolling through the activities I shared last week. Today, I’m sharing what is now one of my favorite places to stay. This exclusive resort is a true sanctuary by the water. We had the pleasure of spending our last night at the Four Seasons.
No detail was left out in designing this luxurious hotel. The entire resort is fresh, organic, and features simple yet authentic nods to Hawaiian culture.
Pretty, right? This room has unique features including: a large furnished lanai, refreshment and Nespresso station, privacy controls, fully integrated lighting and window treatments, and an in-room tablet for connecting guests to a variety of services. The tablet also features helpful information and access to reading materials.
We chose the partial ocean-view suite for our stay. If you’re looking for a ‘deal’, we recommend booking your stay at least eight months in advance. That’s how we saved on this splurge!
In addition to a beautiful room, the resort features daily complimentary programs and island activities. We didn’t have enough time to enjoy morning yoga, but we did stop by the stables to meet the miniature horses.
We also enjoyed lounging by the pool. We ordered drinks and guacamole. Yum! The staff was very attentive. We have found that the staff is delightful whether you’re staying onsite or not. For an additional cost, you can enjoy cruising around the island in a Jeep, off-roading in the upcountry in a Polaris UTV or sail the open seas on a private boat. There are an array activities to choose from during your stay.
We also enjoyed dinner at One Forty, an American steakhouse with Hawaiian seafood. Our meal was very good. It was too dark to snap any photos, but I did grab one from their website.
I do encourage you to try restaurants outside of the resort. It’s important to support local businesses, and it will save you money. Food at the resort is not cheap!
Our experience was phenomenal, and I’m begging Ryan to spend my 30th birthday at the Four Seasons. Before I go, I want to mention the gardens and koi pond. The landscaping is stunning, and they even were detailed with the lighting. Special lights were installed on the trees to prevent confusing the birds at night. The koi ponds add another natural element to the resort. The entire place is open and airy. The gardens throughout are beautiful.
If you’re considering a stay or a trip to Lanai, please don’t hesitate to contact me. It would literally take me a dozen posts to share everything. I hope you enjoyed the pictures. Be sure to check back soon to learn about the sanctuaries on Lanai and Maui. Mahalo.
If you’re flying out of Honolulu, be sure to visit the Four Seasons lounge. It’s way more comfortable than sitting at the gate!
