  • In July 2009… In July 2009, the family enjoyed the hospitality of the Four Season Lanai, staying at Manele Bay and the Lodge at Koele for a wedding. And who knew the Four Seasons has an active social networking campaign, engaging customers on Twitter and even giving Twitter treats! In July 2009, the Hawaii State Farm Fair featured a watermelon eating contest which my brother-in-law dominated. Witness. In July 2009, Pulpconnection had serious technical issues so I upgraded to Dreamhost Private Servers and have been loving it.

  • What a Week, Part 4: A Lanai Twitter Treat If the experience at the Four Seasons Lanai at Manele Bay wasn’t enjoyable enough, a highlight had to be engaging the resort’s Twitter presence @FSlanai. I must admit that I didn’t expect much from a hotel chain’s Twitter prowess. Most corporations, even high end ones, really don’t capitalize on engaging people with social media and networking. Not so with @FSlanai! As soon as I started tweeting about Lanai, @FSlanai was right there, tweeting back. Any interesting picture I snapped, FSlanai would relay with a retweet. And it wasn’t just @FSlanai, but seemingly, the marketing staff of the Four Seasons Lanai got involved with tweets and direct messages from @KatieonLanai and head honcho himself, @tomroelens. What a completely unexpected way to interact with their guests, supplementing the already great IRL service. What blew me away completely was a Twitter treat I found waiting in our room after dinner on Thursday. Sitting there was ...
  • What a Week, Part 2: Four Seasons Lanai On Thursday, July 23, the extended family started our pseudo-staycation, going to Lanai and living the life at the Four Seasons Resorts at Manele Bay and Koele.

Poolside tweeting. Yes, the beach is right there, but the Gnome can lay out poolside and update his Twitter status and drop hints of his next #gnomeroams stops. 4. The fish in the tidepools are big fans! 3. You can learn to blow a conch shell and light the torches on the resort’s grounds. 2. The Lodge has an awesome spot for you in their garden!

  • The Lodge at Koele is Tech Savvy The Four Seasons Lodge at Koele, Lanai is tech savvy running Google’s Chrome on their public use computers. And they provide charging stations for a variety of devices. Though, please note that the iPhone/iPod charger is not compatible with an iPhone 3G (and assumedly 3Gs). When I tried it, the iPhone complained and would not charge with this accessory.
  • Wedding Tunes of Lovely Lanai To accompany the wedding on Lanai are songs hand picked by the bride and the groom.  You can now find these Lovely Lanai classic keepsakes online at the iTunes Store.
  • Playing with Pano Silly me for not knowing what apps I have on my iPhone! I had forgotten all about Pano during the first days at the Four Seasons Lanai at Manele Bay. I did remember while at The Lodge at Koele. Here are some panoramic views at Koele. The view from the gazebo at The Lodge. Entering the garden at The Lodge. Inside the lobby of The Lodge (360-degree view). The beach scenery from Manele Bay would have made great panoramics.  Next time… 😉 Lahaina Roads on Dwellable

  • Thankful for a Twitter Treat! WOW! What an unexpected but very cool gift from the Tweeters of the Four Seasons Lanai. After coming back from dinner on Day 1, we find a Hawaiian Mai Tai “kit” waiting for us in our room, courtesy of Katie Mitchell (aka @katieonlanai). Talk about treating your customers right! While we’ve never met in real life, what an impression this token has left on our family. And I must reiterate the friendliness of the staff of Manele Bay. Everyone is so helpful, and they all say hello as an added welcoming touch. Kudos to the Tweeters of @fslanai who embody and amplify the resort’s aloha spirit online.
