“The Four Seasons Lodge at Koele is Paradise.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

Lana'i is not the conventional Hawai'i - only thirty miles of paved road and no traffic lights because so little traffic, no condos, no McDonald's, just 2,000 people living in a small town in modest homes with tin roofs built years ago for the pineapple workers when Lana'i produced most of the world's pineapples. No more pineapples. Lana'i is like going back to the 1930's. BUT - it has two five-star hotels, both Four Seasons, the Manele Bay on the beach and the Lodge at Koele up in the hills on the edge of the pine forest. I stayed at the Lodge and enjoyed the superb service for which Four Seasons hotels are famous. What could be better than breakfast brought up by room service and served on one's balcony overlooking beautiful gardens and the edge of the pine forest - fresh papaya, eggs benedict, and fresh croissants. The hotel is built like an English country house with The Great Hall as the centerpiece - a baronial hall with a huge stone fireplace at either end and two enormous chandeliers, where people gather for drinks, pupu, and conversation. Behind the hotel are the gardens, including the orchid garden, and places to engage in such genteel activities at lawn bowling and croquet. There are two excellent restaurants.. A shuttle bus leaves each hotel every half hour for the other hotel and guests can use the facilities of both. For someone who wants to enjoy complete relaxation in peace and quiet and beauty with superb service the Lodge at Koele can't be beat.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel have better view - the gardens rather than the drive way.

Aloha hitherejimbo,

Greetings from paradise! Thank you for the wonderful review, we truly appreciate your comments and your affinity for the island, people and history. Great to learn you enjoyed the peace and tranquility, along with the exquisite dining options at the Resort. I must agree, breakfast at The Lodge, whether on your private lanai (balcony) or in the Terrace, overlooking the gardens is an excellent way to start the day. It truly can't be beat. I look forward to welcoming you back to the island soon.

A hui hou,

Alice Bouman

Excellent place to relax and recharge. The staff is amazing! Rooms are large and very well appointed.
We took the ferry from Maui and never rented a car during our 4 day stay. The shuttle b/t the 2 hotels is great. Got to experience the beach environment at Manele Bay and the cooler envirnment of "up-country" at Koele. Golf at both courses was spectacular!

There is nothing in Hawai'i that can compare toThe Lodge at Koele specifically and Lana'i in general. The small town familiarity coupled with the understated elegance of a Four Seasons Resort makes a stay at the Lodge an unparalled opportunity to unplug and re-energize. It is difficult to explain the impact of the pervasive serenity and calm in prose, but perhaps an allegorical reference might suffice: You could play golf at either or both the Experience and Challenge and it wouldn't matter if you shot 73 or 93.

Having lived in Maui for 23 years, my choice is the lodge at Koele for the peace and tranquility of the property. Outstanding service by all and the golf, restaurants, pools are the best.

Room Tip: Ask for the fire place rooms !

This is a wonderful place to stay. It was the second visit for my wife and me and it was, again, near perfection. The Lodge is a fantastic place with excellent rooms (better than the Manele Bay rooms) and unique grounds. Where else can you go lawn bowling? There is a shuttle between the Lodge and the Four Season beach resort in Manele Bay every 30 minutes. The ride is about 25 minutes long. Once you are at the beach, you have full use of the Four Seasons at Manele Bay. At Manele, you can enjoy the beach and sun. Thus, you have two resorts in one. One word of caution is that it can be damp and cool in the winter months at the Lodge. Even so, the warmth of the beach is a short shuttle ride away.

We have stayed at the Four Seasons Manele Bay before and had come up here for dinner before so we knew it was a special place. We actually prefer it to the beach property as it is just more relaxed and quiet. Plus you can go to the beach property whenever you want on the shuttle so it is almost like you get 2 properties in one - they are very different from one another but both have such exceptional service. We will be back!

Aloha Kelleyanne,

Thank you for taking the time review your experience with us. Between the tranquil gardens and intimate atmosphere, The Lodge is a very magical resort and I'm so glad you discovered how special and unique it is. Between two wonderful Four Seasons, guests have full access to each property, which allows for that "island hop" experience just a 20 minute resort shuttle ride apart. From ocean to upcountry, guests can have it all! I look forward to welcoming you back to the island soon. Thank you again for your nice comments.

Warmest aloha,

Alice Bouman

Sorry, but it was nice that everyone seemed to know our name! What a beautiful place. Nice bar. Walk around, lots to explore. Pack sweaters. It is 10-15 degrees cooler here than the other Four Seasons at Manele Bay. We played golf at the Experience.
