Hawanawana Spa at Four Seasons Lana'i Wins ISPA Innovation of the Year Award
The International SPA Association (ISPA) recently named Four Seasons Lana’i as the overall winner for ISPA Innovation of Year. ISPA members voted for the resort’s Zen Horse Sunset Yoga Experience, which provides a chance for humans and horses to connect in the natural world while enjoying yoga and meditation in a shared space.
“We are absolutely delighted to receive this honor,” says Shaw Cote, Spa Director at Four Seasons Resort Lana’i. “At Hawanawana Spa at Four Seasons Lana’i, we have been dedicated to creating exceptional experiences that weave in aspects of our paradise for a richer visit. Zen Horse Sunset Yoga came out of a desire to bring a deeply personal yoga practice into a truly magical backdrop shared with our sentient horses just as the sun sets behind pine tree-ringed pastures.”
The innovative experience allows guests to experience yoga with horses in their natural environment in order to achieve a higher level of mind, body and spirit connection. The ISPA Innovate Awards are resigned to recognize members who lead the way with ground-breaking innovations that advance the spa industry.
“We are so excited to recognize Four Seasons Lanai’i and their truly unique experience,” added ISPA President Lynne McNees. “We hope this innovative spa experience inspires other spa properties to create new, creative spa offerings, furthering the growth of our industry.”
