With customized treatments, the resort offers a range of therapeutic massages, all-natural facials, unique aqua therapy sessions and beauty services and stylings. Additionally, the resort’s Sensei-developed thermal body-mapping technology creates a map of the customer’s body.
Four Seasons Hotel Lanai at Koele also hosts a constantly revolving schedule of up to 16 fitness classes a day, with private sessions in the Yoga Pavilion, gym, one of two movement studios or several of the outdoor locations. Guests can also go on daily hikes while visiting. The resorts cuisine comes from locally grown produce at the Sensei Farm and meals are designed with taste and health in mind.
Another experience available at this Four Seasons resort is the opportunity to help restore local cultural sites and work under the direction of local historians and botanists.
