Sensei’s Hawaiian retreat taps wearable tech and biometric data to guide guests to optimal wellbeing


Sensei Lāna‘i, A Four Seasons Resort – the Hawaiian wellness destination owned by tech billionaire Larry Ellison – has enhanced its Optimal Wellbeing Programme by forming a partnership with human performance and wearable tech company Whoop.

The package offers a deep lifestyle analysis using biometric data and wellness technology, designed to inspire an optimal self via heightened awareness, health insights and experiential learning – all set against the backdrop of Ko’ele, Lanai’s spiritual uplands. “Sensei is committed to helping people live longer, healthier lives through preventative care and healthy lifestyle practices and our new programme is the next evolution of that purpose,” says Kevin Kelly, Sensei CEO.

The journey begins with a pre-arrival questionnaire and a call with Sensei specialists to establish preferences, provide an introduction and customise itineraries.

During their stay, metrics such as heart rate, respiratory rate and sleep will be monitored using a Sensei x Whoop Strap 3.0, alongside a range of other assessments and a blood biomarker diagnostic test to provide a big picture perspective of their health.

Knowledgeable interpretation
All personal data will be stored and evaluated by a digital Sensei Portal, which displays the data in diagrams focused on ‘move’, ‘nourish’ and ‘rest’ and – most importantly – contextualises the information and how all the elements combine to impact lifestyle.

“Beyond administering health and wellness principles that are rooted in scientific findings, Sensei’s value is the understanding of the data points and knowledgeable interpretation for each guest’s unique needs and goals,” says Kelly, adding that the package includes three sessions with Sensei Guides, experts in their fields who will analyse the findings and set collaborative goals.

Optimisation sessions on movement, nutrition and mindfulness are also included, along with a 120-minute massage or thermal body mapping experience and a US$500 (€412, £357) credit towards a collection of 60 activities and services including spa experiences.

When guests leave, they’re given a personalised Guide to Growth report to help power actionable steps on returning home. They also keep the Whoop Strap, which includes a one-year subscription, so they can keep tracking personal data points.

Rates for the programme start at US$1,185 (£847, €977) per person per night for a five-night minimum stay and include semi-private air travel from the Hawaiian hub of Oahu.
