LANAI — Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has teamed up with well-being company Sensei to develop a new all-inclusive hotel on the secluded Hawaiian island of Lanai.
Scheduled to open Nov. 1, 2019, the 96-room-and-suite Four Seasons Hotel Lanai at Koele, A Sensei Retreat is a Four Seasons first, focusing exclusively on wellness retreats and offering a fully customizable program tailored to individual needs. The resort was formerly The Lodge at Koele and is a sister property to the Four Seasons Resort Lanai.
A handpicked team of wellness experts includes nutritionists, chefs, fitness experts, spa therapists and hospitality professionals. Upon booking a retreat, each guest is matched with their own Sensei Guide who will help customize their itinerary in advance. Itineraries can include one-on-one training sessions, group classes, lectures, philanthropic activities, spa treatments in a private ‘hale’ and island excursions.
Retreats start with a minimum three-night stay with the ability to add on additional days, complete with wellness activities, meals and adventures.
Facilities on site include a 24-hour gym, two movement studios, yoga pavilion and outdoor yoga spaces, salon, onsen baths, outdoor pool with lap lanes, 18-hole short golf course with Scotty Cameron putters, an Adventure Park with ziplines and rope courses, and an outdoor sculpture garden. Guests will also have access to a full range of Four Seasons-managed island activities, including golf, ocean sports, hiking, biking, horseback riding, archery and sporting clays.
A new dining concept, Sensei by Nobu, incorporates many ingredients harvested from Sensei’s on-island sustainable farm, with optional dining in a private spa ‘hale’, poolside or in the privacy of one’s room or suite, each of which has a balcony or a lanai. Menus have been designed by world-renowned Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa, in close collaboration with Dr. Agus, Sensei’s co-founder.
On the hotel’s main concept, Agus said: “Our goal is to create experiences, products and services that help people address the gap between their wellness intentions and daily practices. Our retreat provides a great environment to work towards balance, health and well-being with the support of a dedicated, data-driven wellness team.”
Retreats are now available for booking, with confirmed arrivals beginning Nov. 1, 2019. All-inclusive packages include accommodation, spa and wellness programming, meals and refreshments, selected island activities and inter-island transfers between Honolulu and Lanai on Lanai Air.
