Sensei, the wellness brand owned by tech billionaire, Larry Ellison, is to launch a retreat at the Four Seasons Hotel Lana'i at Koele. It will be the first initiative under the new Sensei Well - Being brand.

The Hawaiian retreat is scheduled to launch on 1 November.

The aim is to create the best spa and wellness offering in the world and to enable guests to enjoy the natural and unspoilt beauty of Lana'i.

Locally grown produce from Sensei Farms will be prepared in partnership with Nobu under a new Sensei by Nobu brand, with guidance from Sensei co-founder, Dr Agus, director of University of South Carolina’s Institute for Transformative Medicine.

The Sensei portfolio is being developed by a team of industry veterans, including Andrew Gibson and Civana founder, Kevin Kelly.

They're focusing their energies on the Hawaiian island of Lana'i, which Ellison purchased in 2012.

Ellison is an advocate of hydroponic farming and part of Kelly's brief is to develop this aspect of the company.
