Full accommodation information

Located on the secluded Hawaiian island of Lanai, amid 24 acres of Eden-like tropical gardens, Sensei Lanai, A Four Seasons Resort is a premier wellness haven solely for adults. Whether you’re working towards self-improvement, targeting a specific health goal or you simply want to unwind on a romantic getaway, you’ll embark on a journey of relaxation and well-being through spa treatments, fitness classes and a world-class menu by Nobu.

After a short flight from Honolulu, you’ll arrive at this adult-only hotel set in the lush uplands of Lanai, a quiet island that was once a pineapple plantation. Here, Hawaii’s first luxury wellness retreat is the very picture of serenity and tranquillity, where you can expect a slow pace for a relaxed journey to discover one’s greatest well-being – the hotel’s main philosophy.

Designed with award-winning architects and adorned with extraordinary works of art, you’re bound to be impressed by the Japanese-inspired architectural aesthetic and clean, modern interiors. Choose from four different accommodation categories across the 96 rooms and suites, all with serene, neutral palettes and walls of windows which bring the verdant landscape inside.

Enhancing its setting and décor is the impeccable service, abundant facilities and wealth of recreational opportunities, from horse riding in the hills surrounding Koele, to sailing tours and an 18-hole putting green. You’ll also be able to enjoy the amenities, restaurants and beach belonging to sister property Four Seasons Resort Lanai, where the Jack Nicklaus Signature Manele golf course is built on lava outcroppings with glorious ocean views on every hole.

As this is a wellness retreat, a huge part of the experience is focused on the extensive choice of treatments and programmes, supported by a team of highly trained practitioners. There are ten spa ‘hales’ (houses in Hawaiian), 1,000 sq ft teak and glass structures with saunas, steam rooms, luxurious showers and private plunge pools. Two also have special pools for watsu, where an aqua therapist is on hand to help you achieve your goals.

If you’d prefer a more active approach, there’s a 24-hour fitness facility with scheduled classes, a swimming pool with lap lanes, two movement studios and lakeside yoga platforms. Enjoy complimentary daily wellness and fitness classes, or book private sessions for a more tailored stay. When you’re done, enjoy the innovative dining options that incorporate Sensei’s nutritional philosophy using locally grown produce from the Sensei farm.

Whatever your intention, Sensei has an experience for you. If you’re looking for an organised well-being programme, a specialist Sensei guide will develop your own customised itinerary prior to your arrival, involving a series of consultations and classes.

Another option is known as the ‘Sensei Sabbatical’, a stay of 30 days or longer that allows for total immersion in the restorative environment of Sensei Lanai. Alternatively, you can design your own à la carte itinerary and book the room-only option to take things a little easier.

When you stay at the resort, one of the highlights is the daily complimentary classes, which mostly take place in and around the spa hales, nestled in the quiet grounds amid tropical plants, unique water features and contemporary sculptures. From mindset counselling and spa treatments to fitness classes, sleep management and everything in-between, everything imaginable is on offer for guests’ self-improvement.

So, whichever programme you decide on, you could enjoy a life-changing experience in Hawaii.
