Introducing the new and improved Four Seasons Lana’i Manele Bay

On June 21, 2012 the Governor of Hawaii announced that Larry Ellison, the 5th wealthiest man in the world, had purchased 98% of the island of Lana’i. This purchase included the island’s two Four Seasons resorts. Mr. Ellison did so with the lofty goal of turning the Four Seasons Manele Bay and the Four Seasons Lodge at Koele into two of the most luxurious resorts in the world. He instructed the designers to “spare no expense”.

Recently our own David Ourisman visited the Four Seasons Manele Bay for a site inspection and needless to say he came back very impressed. He stayed in one of the newly renovated Oceanfront rooms. Ranging from 663 to 734 square feet that includes a furnished lanai featuring a glass front to ensure your view is not obstructed. Everything featured in the room was made exclusively for the Manele Bay right down to the 75” flat screen Samsung. Rectangles of handmade Nepalese paper adorn the walls and the teak furniture is perfectly crafted to provide function and decoration.

Not only has the décor at the Manele Bay been amped up but the food has also been kicked up a notch. The breakfast buffet features a spread of lox and bagels, healthy juices, cooked to order eggs, a Japanese buffet and a variety of pastries. For Preferred Partner members, this $45 amenity comes free for two. And the food doesn’t stop at breakfast. One Forty boasts exquisite steaks and seafood, emphasizing local ingredients. Nobu Lanai features views that are as delicious as it’s cuisine and ocean breezes as fresh as the sashimi on the menu, which was masterfully created by world renowned chef Nobu Matsushia. Kailani offers superb Italian fare featuring organic ingredients provided by the island’s own farmers and fishermen. After dinner, shoot a game of pool at The Sports Bar or sip on a signature cocktail at the Kailani Bar.
