Four Seasons Resort Lana'i, The Lodge at Koele
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Lanai City
Reviewed November 5, 2013

This is the third year in a row we've visited The Lodge at Koele for a little golf and R&R and would classify it as the finest place we've ever stayed. From the moment you arrive until the time you leave you are treated with a genuine spirit of Aloha that is unparalleled. The top notch accommodations paired with the tranquil beauty of the island of Lana'i are something everyone should indulge in at least once. If you're a golfer, the courses at Koele and Manele are world class with stunning views.
We are counting the days until we can return,,,It won't be long.

Room Tip: All the rooms have private lanais overlooking the beautiful grounds.

Aloha V.T.L.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. You captured the essence of the property and surroundings perfectly - top notch accommodations, paired with the tranquil beauty of the island. I'm delighted to learn that you have visited three years in a row and we very much look forward to your fourth visit, and more. As you noted, the experience truly begins as soon as you arrive on island and does not end until we bid our guests a fond aloha, or a hui hou. Our warm and genuine staff, complemented by the unique activities and experiences on island, make for an unforgettable visit in paradise. Thank you again for the wonderful feedback.

A hui hou,

Alice Bouman
Resort Manager

Totally enjoyed arriving at sunset, dining in the fine dining restaurant and enjoying the lovely spacious bedroom overlooking the Great Room. The grounds are stunning and our whole last evening on Lanai Island at the Lodge at Kohele was charmed!

Room Tip: LOved the corner room upstairs above the Great Room

Styaed a few days and thought we would take the bus to the lower Four Seasons at least once. No need. The service, quiet, golf, walks, food (both at the hotel and in town), made for a delightful stay. Thank you, Koele!

We've been fortunate to have stayed here a few times as we have an office in Oahu. Each island has it's own personality & Lana'i is our favorite island for peace & tranquility. There is a ferry from Lahaina, Maui which is met by a small bus from the Lodge. Yes, expensive but Always been DELIGHTED with everything! Do not understand it being referred to as rustic. It is elegantly designed as a mountainous lodge. Service is detailed with attention to every detail, Rooms are large, lovely & very comfortable ( I even copied the room & size of window seat when we built our dream home here), loved reading & relaxing by pool where we were almost alone. The Lodge has a large pond with a gorgeous gazebo, a fun putting green, golf course, etc. We have enjoyed The Lodge's sublime restaurant many times but if we are feeling a bit of a captive audience we take the free shuttle down to Lanai City for some local eats or to Manele Bay for a change of scene. We love attending the little church that's all in Hawaiian (there one in Maui also) and marveling at Lana'i's exquisite sunsets with a Mai Tai in hand. The Lodge is beautifully quiet & cooler, being higher up than sea level. This is where to come to escape to be pampered and refresh. Love it...you will too!

nine nights at a gorgeous lodge that was more like an English Manor. Beautifully decorated large rooms with a very spacious bathroom. A window seat, large patio that overlooked the meticously kept gardens.
The food was tops. Very tasty dishes from steak to shrimp ravioli and even meatloaf; veggies cooked to perfection. Great presentation. The portions are large enough that you could share them, especially if you order an appetizer and/or salad as well. We never made it to dessert (with two exceptions: one night we shared a scoop of chocolate icecream and mango sorbet - incredible flavors and on the last night we were presented with a lovely dessert platter that read: thank you!). We can't say enough good things about this place and would be most surprised if anyone has a less than positive and memorable experience.
the room had a small fridge, got a daily supply of bottled water, 2 hiking poles, a large umbrella (yes, it does rain on occasion). Don't know how we 'rated' but had a daily treat waiting for us in the room.
While we also visited the Menele location we found the lodge to be much more to our liking, never mind the convenient location to the various sights (via jeep). Menele can get pretty hot while the lodge is at a higher location and tends to be 10 degrees cooler.
The property has a wonderful walking trail and golf course (of course), a beautiful orchid hot house, sizable pond, etc. .... never mind that scenic horsepasture across the way that delighted us with fantastic sunsets. Don't miss that little church next to the property. We missed an opportunity to listen to an all Hawaiian service.

Room Tip: we had room #365

Aloha Marion W,

Greetings from paradise! Thank you for the very thoughtful and detailed review of your recent stay in October. I truly appreciate your wonderful account of our beautiful and spacious rooms. The views, as you noted, are magnificent and so tranquil overlooking our colorful gardens and rolling countryside. Also, thank you for the great remarks regarding the cuisine, I will share your compliments with the chef! I'm also glad that you explored our sister property just down the road at the beachside property. Guest truly do get the best of both worlds, between the ocean and upcountry experience here! I do hope we have the pleasure of seeing you again. Thank for the wonderful and kind feedback.

Warmest aloha,

Amazing stay in a rustic 5 star lodge - accommodations like no other! The grounds and facilities were marvelous, the staff was extremely accommodating and the rooms were lush and comfortable. Staying here for a romantic getaway was a terrific choice and the free shuttle in to Lanai City allowed us to easily go adventure, meet the people of the island and take in local fare and culture.

The Lodge is truly a few floors below heaven! The solitude, comfort and peacefulness is unrivaled. The magnificence of the natural setting was a first for me. The exquisitely manicured grounds were a treat within itself.

The details of the service were absolutely incredible. Turn down service left a eyeglass cleaning cloth underneath my sunglasses. My toiletries were neatly arranged each day onto fresh towels. Fresh water left on the night stands every night. The list of the details goes on and on.

I had requested a certified personal trainer to continue my regular work-outs. They arranged three sessions with Alicia Bennett who was great! She's fun, professional and clearly an expert in fitness. Prior to my first work-out, she completed all of the precautionary procedures: health history, blood pressure, agility and strength test, etc. If you exercise regularly and want to continue your work-outs, I highly recommend you ask for Alicia. You do have to call in advance to arrange the training sessions. I don't think they have a trainer on property regularly.

I had a problem with my TV throughout my stay and the staff did everything possible to correct the issue. I think NXT TV service was the source of the problem not necessarily the equipment. My compliments to the management who was exceptionally committed to making things right and they did. Thank you!
