A Hawaiian Favorite: Four Seasons Resort Lanai

by Sandra Ramani

Fans of the Four Seasons Resort Lanai can finally breathe easy: as of this month, the dreamy getaway is back. Following over one year and many millions of dollars in renovations, the 217-room resort—set on the former pineapple-plantation island of Lanai, population less than 4,000—has relaunched with upgraded accommodations and public spaces, expanded pools, and new dining options, including an outpost of NOBU. Also refreshed is the spa, which is offering a menu of unique destination-inspired treatments under a new spa director.

Standouts include two new signature three-hour rituals that honor the Hawaiian roots of Makai (“toward the ocean”) and Makua (“toward the mountain”). The former includes a full-body steam, sea salt exfoliation, algae-and-sea clay wrap and hot stone massage, accompanied by Hawaiian black tea and coconut smoothies, while the latter features a pineapple-citrus scrub, pine-and-eucalyptus bamboo massage, and a custom facial, paired with volcanic Mauna Loa oolong tea and refreshing aloe water. Private life coaching, guided meditation, Reiki and sleep health sessions add a wellness component to the revamped menu. fourseasons.com/lanai —Sandra Ramani
