Just returned from Hawaii and I visited the islands of Lana’i and Maui for the first time. Both islands are paradise. Lana’i is so quiet and pristine. Maui was more developed, yet it was very dramatic in its natural beauty. It was an amazing trip for us, everything is better with the Aloha Spirit. And room service for breakfast accompanied by a gorgeous husband and breathtaking views don’t hurt either, ha.
We stayed at the Four Seasons Resort Lana’i at Manele Bay. This Four Seasons property was spectacular, the views and isolated location on the island made for a relaxing tropical getaway. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our spa treatments. I got a facial, massage and a mani/pedi, all are highly recommended. Definitely ask for Milly if she’s available, my husband and I loved her and the treatments she provided. We also were fortunate to visit Four Seasons Resort Lana’i, The Lodge at Koele for dinner one evening (you must witness the sunset there). It was a markedly different vibe at this resort, it was a sumptuous yet rustic Lana’i. It felt like old school Hawaii. Our meals at both resorts were out of this world. There’s a Nobu (squee!) at Manele Bay, and it’s my favorite Nobu (out of NYC, South Beach & London) by far since the seafood couldn’t get any fresher.
The service was over the top at Manele Bay. Be sure to park yourself at the pool. There were so many wonderful amenities to pamper you. Cold and herbal scented towels. Mists to cool your face and body. The sunglass doctor to clean your sunnies. Constant gratis refreshments such as nibbles and frozen fresh fruit smoothies. Loved. It. All.
I wore my new Miken oversized #sunkissed coverup from Macy’s, printed box pleat dress from Zara (sold out online but you may find it in the store) and FairEnds camo baseball cap from Madewell. All were perfect with a tan.
