for Two Resorts on Lana'i; The Lodge at Koele and Manele Bay
|LANA'I, Hawaii, Nov. 17, 2006 - Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is
proud to announce the opening of Four Seasons Resort Lana'i, The Lodge
at Koele (www.fourseasons.com/koele) marking the second Four Seasons resort
to open on the private island of Lana'i.
The Resort has just completed the first phase of its $50-million enhancement
program. Four Seasons Resort Lana'i, The Lodge at Koele is the companion
property of Four Seasons Resort Lana'i at Manele Bay. The entire project
represents more than $100 million invested by Castle & Cooke and its
chairman David Murdock, in the two exclusive properties as part of their
rebranding by Four Seasons.
"We are very proud to be able to add the Four Seasons name to this wonderful property," said Mark Hellrung, general manager of Four Seasons Resorts Lana'i. "With the enhancement of The Lodge, discerning guests with an appreciation for the undiscovered now have a charming upcountry retreat to call home on the private island of Lana'i."
Prior to the opening of The Lodge, all staff received extensive Four Seasons training, which included working at Four Seasons Resort Lana'i at Manele Bay.
The $50-million project offers an ideal private Hawaii experience with the following enhancements:
Guest Rooms and Suites
Following the completion of enhancements and the rebranding of the property, construction will begin on a destination spa/salon, fitness center and wellness center, in a spectacular garden setting. The Spa and Wellness Center are anticipated to open in mid-2008. Additionally, a new Kids For All Seasons facility will open in 2008. The Lodge currently offers supervised children's programs emphasizing fun, educational activities and contemporary and traditional Hawaiian arts, crafts and games in an active environment.
A wide array of estate activities such as golf, shooting sports, horseback riding, hiking, biking, croquet and off-road expeditions are available to guests, many with guides if desired.
Developed by Castle & Cooke, LLC and now managed by Four Seasons, Four Seasons Resorts Lana'i offer the experience of a truly private Hawaii with two unique properties. Guests are able to combine a classic beach holiday with a peaceful upcountry Lodge vacation. Four Seasons Resort Lana'i at Manele Bay and Four Seasons Resort Lana'i, The Lodge at Koele offer travelers the secluded pleasures and authentic upcountry beauty of Hawaii.
