U.S. News Review

Of Lanai's two Four Seasons properties, this is the one that attracts beach lovers. Positioned along a beautiful stretch of Manele Bay sand overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this resort takes recent guests' breath away with its picturesque sea views, gorgeous grounds and top-notch customer service. During their stays, guests can enjoy outdoor pursuits, such as snorkeling, deep sea fishing, horseback riding, scuba diving and more. Visitors use terms like "paradise" and "heaven on earth" to describe the property. Guest rooms here all feature private patios with views of the island's dramatic landscape, as well as high-end aminities like iHome docking stations, L'Occitane toiletries and complimentary Internet access. One of the most loved features is the complimentary shuttle, which will cart you to and from the airport, as well as to and from Lanai Town. Recent visitors do say you should brace yourself for the high cost of meals at the resort's multiple restaurants and treatments at the in-house spa. Still, most travelers enjoy this Four Seasons resort's piece of shoreline as well as its world-class golf course. Note: The Four Seasons Resort Lana'i at Manele Bay will be undergoing extensive renovations in 2015, so be sure to check with the hotel to ensure room and activity availability before booking.

Critic Reviews


“Whether dining at Nobu Lanai, perhaps on famed chef Nobu Matsuhisa's signature yellowtail sashimi with jalapeño, or playing 18 holes at the Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course with breathtaking views of the ocean, you will find your own piece of paradise. ”
Award: Forbes Travel Guide Four Star Awards 2014


“This gracious resort on Lanai’s south coast overlooks Hulopoe Beach — one of the finest stretches of sand in the state. As you meander through the open-air lobby to one of two oceanfront wings, you’ll pass by lush gardens, waterfalls, and koi-filled lotus ponds.”
Award: Frommer's Exceptional


“Overlooking Hulopoe Bay, this sublime retreat offers beachside urban chic with stunning views of the deep blue sea and astonishing rocky coastline.”
