living in oahu, the 4 seasons resorts on lanai were always our favorite island destination. for years the lodge and manele bay marketed themselves as one. stay at one, enjoy all the amenities at the other. we always made multiple family excurisions to lanai, and we always booked at the lodge, and the first morning there the golfers would golf at manele bay in the morning, and the rest of the family would take the shuttle over for lunch poolside, and go swimming in the pool after lunch, then return to the lodge for dinner. we have done this for at least the last 7 years, imagine our surprise when our grandson was getting ready to jump in the pool with the other 2 people in it, when we were informed because we were lodge guests, we were no longer wanted or allowed to use the manele bay pool any longer, because of a new exclusionary rule instituted by management. the solution if we wanted to use the pool was to leave the lodge, and get a room at manele bay. sadly to say, our 20th. trip to lanai is probably our last, why stay on an island and resorts where you are no longer welcomed. Does the new ownership not know, the aloha spirit is one of welcoming people, not barring or excluding them. Its ironic Manele Bay still welcomes us,at all their facilities that cash or a credit card is needed.
