We were looking for a secluded, active AND relaxing vacation after 14 months of sheltering in place in Vermont. We wanted a beautiful location, a curated experience, wellness activities, delicious yet healthy meal options, togetherness with our adult son and his partner, and a small boutique hotel environment with clearly professional and experienced management. We got all that and more at Sensei, and look forward to returning on a regular basis. The grounds and art are a special bonus and add to the uniqueness of the experience. I loved that we weren't rushed out of our massages and that we had access to the spa hale's amenities for another half hour post massage (steam, sauna, hot tub, cold plunge, indoor and outdoor showers). I had 3 massages in 6 days with 2 very knowledgeable and professional massage therapists. All classes and one-on-one activities had great instructors and were well thought out. The hike to the ridge is appropriately described as moderate--a couple of slightly challenging parts, but very doable for most people. Access to the beach was easy via the shuttles, but I only went once because I didn't want to leave the beautiful Sensei grounds. Our son's partner went daily and she had no trouble with the scheduled shuttles. Essentially, all four of us were able to make this vacation whatever we wanted.

The resort grounds were beautiful and had the best landscaping we have ever seen. The rooms and resort were both extremely clean. The concierge and shuttle to activities and the beach resort were excellent. The food was also very good and portions were plentiful. Shane on the Holo Holo tour was awesome!

Our stay at Four Seasons Lanai Sensei was nearly flawless. The suite was perfect; light, bright and luxurious. The grounds were beautiful- definitely on par with a top-notch arboretum, and the service was amazing! Our only regret is that we didn’t stay longer. I definitely recommend signing up for the sunset cruise and renting a jeep through the hotel to explore the rugged terrain of Lanai. Even though this is a wellness component to the resort, we didn’t really take advantage of those offerings.

We had the best time for just the wife and I. Everything about our stay felt personalized and service was outstanding. We were a little nervous after reading negative reviews but we must have said 100 times how much we were enjoing ourselves while we were there. Already looking into booking our return trip!

First and foremost, Lanai is a beautiful island with incredible people. The staff at the hotel were exceptional, kind and welcoming. The property is immaculate and relaxing. The experiences, from the spa, adventure course and horseback riding are well worth it. Nobu is delightful. Visit Lanai city, the shops and restaurants are well worth your time. Unfortunately, several issues arose during our stay that made our experience not at all worth the cost and effort. The room rate includes a flight to the island and transportation to the hotel. We arrived on time at the Lanai airport, but were left on the tarmac in the midday sun with no one to pick us up. Numerous calls to the hotel were met with skepticism and insistence that our driver was waiting for us in the terminal. There is no terminal. There was no driver waiting. Our very helpful pilots finally found a driver to take us to the hotel after some time. Despite a great deal of time spent with the experience staff prearranging our trip, many of our reservations and requests were not actually booked, though they were in the itinerary provided by Sensei. Because everything on the island is run by the Four Seasons, you have no option but to book through the hotel. The process seems straightforward. It is not, and we were constantly working to ensure we would have dinner or our next excursion as expected, taking all the relaxation our of our trip. We were also very disappointed by our room. It was large and comfortable, but was located above the restaurant kitchen, which had constant noise in the evening and into the night. It also had an expansive view of a large bright white rooftop and a non-functioning air conditioner. Avoid this room if at all possible. Upon departure our final bill was inaccurate and the hotel staff were unable to help us. We were left to try and correct it with staff when we returned home. We were fortunately able to correct the overcharge of several thousand dollars, but it should have never happened. In the end, I was most struck by the indifference of the planning and front desk staff to the issues we experienced. The only person to apologize were the accounting folks refunding us a week after our stay. We expected so much more from the Four Seasons. We won't be back.
