Four Seasons Resort Lana'i 

Hotel Rating
5 star

Seclusion and tranquillity reign at this expansive, beachfront resort just 5 minutes from the Manele ferry harbor. Situated atop a rugged red lava cliff above a white sand beach and bordering a marine preserve, Four Seasons Resort Lana'i is an ideal place to leave your everyday world behind.

The resort is on the 140 square-miles privately owned island of Lana'i, which has fewer than 2,800 residents, less than 30 miles of paved roads, and no chain stores. Scuba diving, sailing, winter whale watching, and deep-sea fishing are popular activities.

Four Seasons Resort Lana'i's 217 luxurious guest rooms, including 51 suites, evoke a relaxed island feel, while up-to-the-minute technology includes 75' platinum bezel LED television sets, Wi-Fi, BluRay players, iPad Airs and wristband keys. Some rooms overlook the resort’s five lush botanical gardens with waterfalls and koi ponds, while others offer striking views over Hulopo’e Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Averaging a spacious 700 square feet, all rooms have a comfortably furnished, private lanai (terrace or balcony) from which you can enjoy your spectacular surroundings. Spacious bathrooms offer typical Four Seasons amenities: a marble double-basin vanity, deep soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower stall.

The Spa

Enjoy a selection of facial treatments, salon services, skin care, nail services, body treatments and massages, including Hawaiian spa rituals, in one of 11 spacious treatment rooms. Then deepen your relaxation in the men’s and women’s red-cedar dry-heat saunas, eucalyptus steam rooms and rainforest showers.

Private lockers, personal robes and slippers are provided, along with flavored waters, healthy snacks and a selection of teas. Select treatments are available poolside.


Nobu Lana'i
Set cliffside, overlooking a protected marine preserve, Nobu Lana'i offers sweeping panoramic views matched by innovative Japanese cuisine. Drawing upon Chef Matsuhisa's classical training as a sushi chef in Tokyo, his life abroad in South America, and his travels around the world, Nobu Lana'i showcases Chef's signature new-style Japanese cuisine, as well as new creations infusing local Hawaiian ingredients.

This ocean-view restaurant offers breakfast and an extensive steak and seafood dinner menu. With an emphasis on local ingredients, prime and wagyu beef from Snake River Farms and local Hawaiian catch are showcased and prepared to perfection. A wide selection of traditional side dishes complement main courses, while an accomplished wine list features a variety of fine labels.

Perched above Hulopo'e Bay, Kailani specializes in contemporary Italian cuisine made from the freshest local and organic ingredients, sourced directly from Hawai'i’s fishers and farmers. Served alfresco for lunch and dinner, innovative menus incorporate seasonal offerings that are proudly showcased in the daily specials. Dinner choices include lobster ravioli with local seasonal vegetables and vanilla butter sauce; locally caught smoked ono accompanied by rainbow carrots, baby artichokes with salsa verde; and cappesante e pancetta with scallops and pork belly, candy apple purée and micro celery.

VIEWS at Manele Golf
Cliff-side dining at Manele Golf is an inspiring motivator for a day on the golf course. Savour island-influenced cuisine while enjoying panoramic ocean vistas and breathtaking fairway views. Ideal for lunch or afternoon refreshments.

The Sports Bar
This open-air sports bar with dramatic views of the ocean offers a lively social atmosphere to gather and mingle. Guests can enjoy pool and other table games or relax with their favorite sports program on the Lounge's 90" LCD television.


The Manele Golf Course with its 3 cliff-side fairways, was designed by Jack Nicklaus. It is a spectacular ocean-view, par-72 course that includes two over-water holes. Its 12th hole is positioned on a cliff 150 feet above the waves with a 200-yard tee shot across the ocean. The golf clubhouse also has a driving range and practice green.

Four Seasons Resort Lana'i also has a tennis center with Premier cushion courts, clinics and private lessons. The complimentary fitness center features a Movement Studio and state-of-the-art equipment. Coastal fitness hikes are offered through the spa. The Concierge can arrange deep sea fishing, surfing, four-wheel drive safaris, horseback riding, bicycling, Polaris UTV tours, and sailing trips for snorkeling, scuba diving, ocean kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, dolphin and whale watching.

With stunning views of the Pacific, the resort's swimming pools feature an adults-only retreat with private sanctuaries, and a lagoon-style experience, complete with whirlpools, for an alternative to the ocean and beach.
