Best hotel of Hawaii - Four Seasons Resort Lanai
Billionaire Larry Ellison bought Lanai, Hawaii Island with 88,000 hectares in 2012...
He also became the owner of two Four Seasons properties. After several years of improvements and a complete closure over a period of seven months, his Four Seasons Resort Lanai was reopened, and is a much better version of this vacation spot of the rich and famous.
Before Ellison invested millions in this hotel, the resort itself was a mediocre destination for wealthy guests who want to visit the island. Manager of the resort was a veteran in the business, Tom Roelens, said: "For us, this is a completely new resort". If the estimates are accurate, Ellison has spent about $ 450 million on Lanai project, so new is an understatement for conjuring up the results of the renovation.
With walls made of teak, mahogany floors, hand-woven carpets and decorative details, the interior of this hotel offers a refreshed and refined vibration of the island. Number of rooms has been reduced from 386 to 217, and each room has received a makeover, or a completely new and modern look. Large French doors, Toto Washlet bathrooms, improved lighting and hundreds of works of art decorate the guestrooms. As regards technology, outdated key card is now transformed into an elegant bracelet that reduces the possibility of losing them.
Within the resort, there are 51 suits, particularly spectacular is the detached Ali'l which costs $ 21,000 for one night. With an area of about 400 m2, this suite is ideal for six people and is located on the second floor of the resort. With a warm color scheme, its interior contains custom pieces of art, formal living room with extra toilet, dining room for six people, a library and a media room. In the exterior, guests can relax on the enormous sofas or enjoy al-fresco meals.
Part of the resort is also renowned spa center, as well as eight options for dining and enjoying a drink of your choice, including Nobu Lanai, with unique creations. As the needs of adults here are in the first place, Lanai offers a lagoon-style pool, and intimate hideaway which is intended only for adults. Ice Cream, Evian spritzers, sunglasses, chilled towels and sunscreen are just a few benefits that you can enjoy near the pool.
