Tiny Lana’i is a private island with no stoplights, two world-class golf courses and two Four Seasons resorts that work in perfect concert with one another. Perched in the central highlands amid Cook Island pines, the Lana’i Lodge at Koele is the island’s upcountry escape with 102 rooms and suites done in a luxe country style, all with verandas looking over manicured lawns and lush tropical gardens. After a day of horseback riding or hiking, relax with a massage in the spa or have the therapist come to your suite. Dinner is served in the elegant Dining Room — think local seafood and produce grown on property. Round out your vacation with a beachy stay at the Four Seasons sister resort in Manele Bay.
In the Area
Like Four Seasons’ two Lana’i resorts, the island’s two golf courses work in perfect symbiosis. Inland, The Experience at Koele offers stunning views of mountains and lush greens, with a cooler climate, wooded slopes, terraced water hazards and the ocean in the distance. It’s a dramatic contrast to The Challenge at Manele, built on lava outcroppings above the crashing surf of Hulopo’e Bay where the Pacific Ocean is a water hazard and tee shots must clear natural gorges, ravines and rocks.
How to Get There
We are in Lanai on our honeymoon, staying in town and decided to walk to the Four Seasons Lanai Koele after hearing so many great things, thinking perhaps on our next trip we would stay there. Upon walking up the driveway we were greeted by a stern employee who told us to leave and that we couldn’t go inside unless we were guests of the hotel. We explained we were there to look around to book it for our next trip and he was very rude and short with us. I asked if I could go inside to purchase a water (it was a hot
day) and he wouldn’t even allow that, although he reluctantly brought one out for me after I asked. That was a really unpleasant experience and now we will definitely not book there. What a shame, there is never any reason to be rude to future customers.
The spa at Koele just open after a two-year renovation. It is now a world class destination health spa the best word I can use to describe is it’s just stunning anyone booking are going to stay there will absolutely love it the grounds in the garden unlike anything you’ve ever seen.Mr. Ellison hard to top architects and designers and spared nothing to create such beauty We have not had the opportunity to eat there yet but the new restaurant is Nobu light And we have a reservation for this Thursday evening
