Your Workspace

Your home base will be at the Four Seasons Resort Lanai — in a luxury room, of course. With opulent amenities, gourmet cuisine, and a stunning view of Hulopoe beach, you might even forget how busy you are.

What You'll Do

Learn traditional strategy skills

Get in the mindset of Hawaiian leaders of the past while you explore this historic site. You’ll discover the royal residence of King Kamehameha, visit the cliff that Chief Kahekili famously leaped off of, and learn about the tradition of konane.

Konane is a traditional game of strategy, known for occasionally garnering high-stakes bets. According to legend, chiefs would wager entire kingdoms on a single round.

Up your drinks game

Take a one-of-a-kind cocktail class at Lanai’s own Nobu. You’ll make local libations like the Shiso leaf Mojito and learn skills to take “doing drinks” to a new level.

Get inspired at Keahiakawelo

This breathtaking site is made even more meaningful by its history: according to legend, two kahuna (priests) from the islands of Lanai and Molokai held a contest, wherein each burned a fire on their respective island to see whose would burn longer and be rewarded with abundance. The Lanai kahuna, Kawelo, used every piece of vegetation in Keahiakawelo, resulting in the area’s vast, barren landscape.

Morning Meditation

Create mental space by turning your focus inward. Your work will reap the benefits of daily beachside meditations, proven to improve decision-making, confidence, and general awareness skills.

“Peaceful” is an understatement — there isn’t a single traffic light on Lanai.
