Four Seasons Resort Lanai is undergoing a a multi-million dollar transformation that will offer guests a sophisticated yet relaxed escape.
The resort is located on thier own 90,000-acre (36,000 hectare) secluded Hawaiian island just nine miles (14.5 kilometres) from Maui. The comprehensive lobby-to-roof renovation features 217 redesigned guest rooms including 51 suites; newly refurbished lobbies and seating areas for contemplation; additional dining experiences such as the award-winning NOBU LANAI; a renovated spa; luxury retail boutiques; and new Pro Shop at the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Manele Golf Course. The Resort’s contemporary décor reflects the tones and textures of the island and adds an island aesthetic, featuring rich colours from the earth, sand and brush as well as thoughtfully curated artwork from across Polynesia, Micronesia and of course Hawaii.
Verdant botanical gardens and waterways reveal both lush intimate enclaves as well as spectacular vistas to the Pacific Ocean, featuring an array of native Hawaiian plants and species. By day, the landscape is a journey through a paradise of colour and fragrance serving as a backdrop for commissioned works of outdoor art and sculpture. At night, tree-tops and slate paths lit by the glow of tiki torches lead the way to entirely new rooms.
Inspired by Hawaii’s diverse and storied influences, the interiors are comprised of an extraordinary material and details palette such as walls of teak and zebra wood edging artisan-produced Nepalese lokta paper and floors of mahogany 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 presents a 75 inch, platinum bezel LED television panel for unparalleled in-room entertainment along with wearable key wristbands to allow maximum flexibility during activities on island; Blu-ray players, in-room iPad Airs and a mobile app connecting guests to a variety of information and services including complimentary access to more than 3,000 newspapers.
New pool experiences complete the transformation, featuring an adults-only oasis with private sanctuaries and a lagoon-style pool experience, while new dining outlets and services ensure perfection is poolside. These investments, along with the addition of a luxury transfer fleet and an exclusive airport lounge in Honolulu, pave the way for the Resort to offer the highest standards of hospitality, highly personalised service and innovative enhancements.
The Resort is planned to reopen early 2016 following the completion of the redevelopment project.
