New Nobu Restaurant and More at Four Seasons Resorts Lanai

Travel Agent recently sat down with a representative of Four Seasons Resorts Lanai, which includes the Four Seasons Resorts Lanai at Manele Bay and The Lodge at Koele, and got the skinny on some new selling points for seasoned Hawaii clients looking for an upscale trip to the Aloha State. 

Clients can now take advantage of enhancements in restaurants, public areas and guestrooms throughout the resort, ensuring a private island getaway is all that could be imagined.  

The launch of NOBU Lanai last year heralded an exciting new dining option at Manele Bay, in the restaurant, by the pool or even via in-room dining. ONE Forty, an ocean-view American steak and Hawaiian seafood restaurant featuring local ingredients adds another new culinary destination while the Sports Bar is perfect for casual dining.  Also, this January saw the debut of VIEWS, the new clubhouse restaurant at the Manele Bay golf course. 


Four Seasons Resorts Lanai at Manele Bay Offers Free Island Hikes

With only 30 miles of paved roads on the entire island, Lanai is a hiker’s dream. From beachside paths perfect for a sunrise stroll, to more strenuous tree-lined trails that crest mountain tops, the island of Lanai offers hikes to suit every level. 

Now guests of Four Seasons Resorts Lanai at Manele Bay have an even better reason to hit the road with a series of guided hikes complimentary to guests.
