COVID-19 Updated Protocols

Sensei has always been on a mission to promote preventative care and healthy lifestyle choices.
But now — more than ever — our commitment to wellbeing is top of mind. As we collectively respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking actionable measures to deliver safe experiences grounded in science, bolstered by technology and sustained by compassion.

At Sensei Lāna‘i, a Four Seasons Resort, we are proud to announce the roll out of our new health and safety program, Lead With Care. In addition, we are leveraging the knowledge and expertise of our co-founder, Dr. David Agus, a world-leading physician and scientist to ensure that our protocols reflect the latest research and recommendations.

During these uncertain times, rest assured that there is one thing that has not changed: our inherent, heartfelt intention to help you grow well.

Travel to Hawaii and Maui County:

Travelers vaccinated on the US mainland can bypass quarantine without getting a COVID test by uploading proof of vaccination to the state’s Safe Travels website, found here: https://travel.hawaii.gov/#/. Visitors will also need to bring a physical copy of their vaccination cards with them. In accordance with Hawaii’s pre-travel testing program, out-of state arriving guests without proof of vaccination must provide evidence of a valid negative Covid-19 NAAT from a trusted testing partner, submitted 72 hours prior to departing for Lāna‘i.

Additionally, effective October 16, Maui County now requires proof of full vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test within 48 hours of entry to the premises to dine at indoor restaurants, bars and to utilize indoor gyms and spa areas.  Guests can show their government or school issued ID along with vaccination card/negative test or digital version through Hawaii’s Safe Travel app upon check-in.
