LANAI, HAWAII (January 28, 2014) – There hasn’t been a better time to get away to the Four Seasons Resorts Lanai at Manele Bay.  With numerous recommendations as one of THE places to go in 2014, guests can also 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.  This January sees the debut of VIEWS, the new clubhouse restaurant at the Manele Bay golf course.


VIEWS Restaurant and Bar offers a prime vantage point to see Pu’u Pehe and Hulopo’e Beach. Long infinity edge tables made from Monkey Pod wood slabs found in Hawaii are perfect for watching Spinner dolphins, or during winter months, Humpback whales, while enjoying lunch or bite after a round. The décor showcases a modern Hawaii, with features such as marble mosaic flooring inspired by Tapa bark cloths found throughout the islands and intricate patterns interwoven into dining chairs and upholstery fabrics.


Also new to the property is ADORE, a luxury retail experience at the Hulopo’e Beach Luau Grounds.  The unique lifestyle boutique, created by Seaside Luxe, features designer clothing from Frank & Eileen and Marie France Van Damme as well as shoes and accessories, fine jewelry by Jordan Alexander, Mattia Cielo, Federica Rettore, Kimberly McDonald and Jemma Sands as well as art & home décor.


Along with a refreshed lower lobby, thirteen new Penthouse Suites in the main building of the hotel and a newly designed Spa demonstrate the resort’s commitment to continually improving the guest experience.


Those wanting to explore this ‘must-see’ island can Stay Longer – with the Fourth Night Free promotion, which provides one complimentary night to guests who book three consecutive nights at Manele Bay, with rates starting at $459 per night. The complimentary fourth night must be used in conjunction with the initial stay, and cannot be combined with any other offer, package or promotion. A four night minimum stay is required, and room categories are subject to availability. Tax and service charge additional.


Four Seasons Resorts Lanai, located on a pristine island a few miles west of Maui reflecting a simpler pace of life and the spirit of old Hawaii, features Manele Bay and The Lodge at Koele. Guests can enjoy two exceptional experiences on one private island – a quintessential beach resort and a charming upcountry lodge offering unique cultural adventures, myriad water and land activities and world-class tennis and golf.  For more information, or to make a reservation, please contact Four Seasons at1-800-321-4666 or visit
