Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has partnered with wellbeing company Sensei to develop an all-inclusive hotel on the island of Lanai in Hawaii. Four Seasons Hotel Lanai at Koele, A Sensei Retreat, shares the same beachfront as Four Seasons Resort Lanai. Closed since January 2015, the Lodge at Koele has been transformed into a 96-room-and-suite adults-only luxury hotel, restaurant and spa.
At its core, retreat will be a wellness escape, providing a full suite of customisable programs. On site will be a team of wellness experts, nutritionists, chefs, fitness experts, spa therapists and hospitality professionals.
Once booked, each guest is matched with their own Sensei Guide, who will help customise their itinerary in advance. During each stay, the Sensei Guide will use cutting-edge health tools and technology, recommendations from their supporting wellness team as well as guest feedback to adapt the program.
“Four Seasons’ partnership with Sensei signals our deep understanding of what today’s luxury traveller wants: an exclusive and differentiated wellness travel experience, perfectly pairing Sensei’s evidence-based approach to healthy living with Four Seasons renowned and legendary service,” says Christian Clerc, President, Global Operations, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
Activities range from one-on-one training sessions and group classes to lectures, philanthropic activities, immersive spa treatments in a private hale, and island excursions.
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, perfect for alfresco dining. Menus have been designed by world-renowned Japanese Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and his team in close collaboration with Dr. Agus and Sensei’s nutritionists, utilising a science-driven approach to diet within the context of full-body health.
Retreats are now available for booking, with confirmed arrivals beginning November 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.
There is a minimum three-night stay, with guests able to add on additional days, complete with wellness activities, meals, adventures and more.
Four Seasons Hotel Lanai at Koele, A Sensei Retreat, is slated to open from 1 November 2019.
