For a Hawai‘i visit with a difference, travellers can opt for the lesser-known island of Lanai – home to the new Four Seasons Hotel Lanai at Koele, A Sensei Retreat. It started accepting reservations as of Nov. 1 and beyond, with a focus exclusively on wellness retreats.
The new adults-only, all-inclusive resort offers comprehensive and customizable wellness programs tailored to individual needs. It has partnered with Sensei, the wellness company founded by Larry Ellison and Dr. David Agus, plus Chef Nobu Matsuhisa. Together, they have created “an extraordinary level of wellness, luxury, hospitality and dining expertise all under one roof.”
Each personalized wellness journey starts with a minimum stay of three nights, and a consultation with a personal Sensei Guide. Amongst the services offered is a range of therapeutic massages, all-natural facials, unique aqua therapy sessions and beauty services and stylings.
Nearby is the picturesque plantation town of Lanai City, with its local boutiques, restaurants and art galleries. A visit to the Lanai Cultural and Heritage Center offers a glimpse into the island’s history, including its time as one of the world’s largest producers of pineapples.
