Province of Treviso, Italy

We stayed at the four season in Lanai, it is an amazing place with lots of nature around it. My child loved the waves and the pool, but even the experience of the Hawaiian dance. Restaurants impeccable and the service and people working there were very nice. We suggest this hotel.

Not worth the price tag - not for millennials - so many problems - not relaxing

Annapolis, Maryland

I'm all about luxe hotels, and while this is a nice one, it really misses the mark. However, the grounds are beautiful, we loved meeting the sweet people of Lanai and are happy this hotel gives them a job. We were there on our honeymoon and mostly saw 50+ older couples with teen children. This hotel is for baby boomers, not Millenials. First off, we were greeted warmly but overwhelmingly by many people. We were then asked if we wanted to pay to upgrade or room, and we felt like we were being sold to to try to pay for an upgrade. We said we were on our honeymoon, and the hotel was by no means sold out - so they could have upgraded us for free if they wanted to but instead had us tour rooms before we saw our own that we could pay up to $800 a night more for (when it was already $1,200 +). Staff - The front desk staff we interacted with didn't know what was going on and gave us confusing answers about many things. Including when we asked for the room above us for a better view. She said it would be an extra charge (even though it is still a partial ocean view). We were told we could switch rooms after we had dinner. We get back, pack up our stuff and surprise two hours later the room isn't ready (now 10 PM) and I'm dying to go to bed. They also were SO CONFUSED when I asked for a mini-fridge with no drinks in it. They didn't set up my husbands surprise champagne and strawberries and delivered it after we were in our room. Room - The rooms were tiny and really had a weird set up. Not modern or traditional just blah decor all wood. Everything is digitalized which means I couldn't control what lights were on and off, they all are set to turn off and on together. There needs to be better lights in that room, it is truly odd. YOU ALSO CANNOT TURN DOWN YOUR THERMOSTAT LOWER THAN 68. Even at 68 with the fan on high and air on high, I woke up every night sweating. There is a giant TV on the wall (totally unnecessary). Our Lanai was tiny as well. Toliet was the best part about the room, but again this is someone only 50+ plus would care about. You can not get your own ice. Pool - My husband was legit threatened at the pool for bringing in his own beer and water. They legit said they would call security if he brought in his beer, even though I ordered drinks and food and spent $100+ at the pool that day. There is no music AT ALL at the pool (not even a light music) Beach - You can not have alcoholic beverages at the beach. This isn't the hotels fault but major downfall. They also will not give you rides up and down the pathway by golf cart to the beach (which is steep and hot) even if you ask. The beach was too rough for me to swim in and I got wiped out by a giant wave and wouldn't go back in the water there. Food- The food at Nobu and OneForty is undeniably delicious. HOWEVER, YOU WILL SPEND $100 ON BREAKFAST FOR TWO EACH DAY. There is no other option. Even ordering a-la-carte and not the buffet, it is super expensive. I've never seen a buffet of $48 a person before. Nobu was the most expensive meal we had on our entire honeymoon in maui and lanai and it was the least memorable. Activities - The fishing charter was almost a disaster - we got to the fishing boat at 6:30 AM, and sat for one hour not moving as they tried to fix the boat. Left, came back to the hotel and another hour went past only to have us called back. We were offered NOTHING by the hotel (not even a free drink) for the inconvenience. I would skip this island, especially on a first trip to Hawaii. Maybe if I got tired of Maui I'd come but three nights is way too long. We were dying to go back to Maui, and specifically Hotel Wailea. If you do come here, rent a 4x4 which was the highlight of our trip to drive the island and go to the cat sanctuary, or stay at hotel lanai city.

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.

Manele Golf Course

Manele Golf Course boasts unspoiled natural terrain with the Pacific Ocean as a stunning backdrop. The course features three holes on cliffs with the Pacific as a water hazard.


Choose from the Central or Retreat (adult) pool as an alternative to the beach. Pool attendants regularly offer ice water, chilled towels and other amenities including frosty popsicles, sunscreen and sunglass cleaning.


Relax your body and mind with a selection of massage therapies, skin care, nail services and body and facial treatments, or visit the red-cedar dry-heat saunas or eucalyptus steam rooms.
