Really lovely classic Four Seasons

Orinda, California

My wife and I just returned from this great resort and I think it was one of the very best vacations we have ever taken. The staff was universally great, the resort itself is beautiful and the island has great appeal for us as it is uncrowded and beautiful. Don't let the cool temperature reports from Lanai City concern you as the Manele Bay site of the resort is much warmer and was perfect for our January visit. We were initially concerned about not having enough to do but the resort has thoughtfully created some unusual and creative activities. The initial draw for me was the fact that there is a great mix of things not normally found in a resort setting. The sporting clays course is great as is Dennis the manager/instructor. Perfect for experienced shooters as well as someone that has never shot before. The boats for fishing, snorkeling or diving are first class and the staff is most accommodating. The Jeep rentals make this beautiful, but rustic, island accessible and the remote beaches are beautiful and sparsely populated. There are essentially 3 restaurants on site all of which are great and there is enough variety to keep us happy for the week+ that we were there. All in all, we have traveled to many Four Seasons resorts but this one is special and we will return again.

Beautiful location, hotel not up to 4 Seasons Standards

We recently returned from a five night stay at the Lanai Four Seasons. We have stayed at Four Seasons properties all over the world -- LA, NY, SF, Paris, Istanbul, etc. We also use as reference points the Waldorf Astoria in Chicago and the Peninsula in Chicago, both of which are really tops in terms of customer service. This was not in that league. First, it was incredibly difficult to get decent reservation times at the restaurants, and once there, service was mediocre. The "table side poke" was not done table side (and was much lower in quality) occasionally, and things like diet cokes took a long time to arrive. Some of the restaurant staff was excellent, and others were mediocre. We appreciated that the hotel allowed us to fly on their plane back to Honolulu, where we took United back to LA. However, on the way to Lanai, we asked our contact at the hotel about how the commercial flight was from Honolulu to Lanai on Hawaiian airlines and were told it was just fine. Anything but... our luggage was lost, the flight was a mess, once we realized our luggage was lost the procedures for getting it back (involving standing on a line for a half hour while exhausted from travel, waiting for airline staff to deal with the dozen or so folks with missing bags) were horrible. We were told that bags get lost routinely. Had the hotel contact told us this, we would have sought other options. Additionally, the room was extremely warm at night and the A/C would not go to a comfortable level. When paying what we were paying, we should be able to set the A/C where we want. We understand the desire to be "green" but we are paying for comfort and deserve it at these prices - going sustainable on the backs of guests paying more than you pay at Post Ranch (our favorite place to stay, and quite pricy) is not the ideal way to go. The gym had very nice equipment and a great view. I appreciate the investment in woodway treadmills and wish more hotels did that. However, the temp was over 70 (probably over 72, maybe even 75) and this is not safe for aerobic activity, per the IFA and OSHA. It was incredibly uncomfortable. The gym was routinely packed, as the demographic of folks staying at this location is a fit bunch, and a number of folks noted this. With the number of folks in the room, the temperature increased as well. It's understandable that with the sun beaming in, it's going to heat up the room -- but take some of the money you get from the exorbitant room rates and refrigerate the place. Other hotels with gym views do this. We toured the renovated wellness/fitness hotel that's also run by the Four Seasons and felt that had more wow factor than the beach resort, although we did not stay at the wellness retreat hotel this time around. We do plan to go back to check that out. We really enjoyed our stay, but feel that the tweaks above would be helpful to really take this hotel to the level of the top resorts worldwide.

Only in Lanai Experiences

Dive into Hulopoe Bay, just steps away from the Resort. Here you'll find exceptionally clear water with coral reefs that are virtually undisturbed, making this an exceptional location for snorkelling and diving. It's common to see spinner dolphins and tropical reef fish, and humpback whales pass through during the winter months.


The Four Seasons Resort Lanai has partnered with two charities; the Lanai Cat Sanctuary where volunteers can spend time volunteering, and the Monk Seal Foundation where guests can adopt a monk seal.
