HBO's The White Lotus may be a fictional miniseries, but the Hawaiian resort where it was filmed is indeed real. The intriguing show's first season was shot at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, a dreamy escape that offers gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean, the West Maui Mountains, and other islands in the distance. The White Lotus's stacked cast — which includes Sydney Sweeney, Brittany O'Grady, Jake Lacy, Alexandra Daddario, Jennifer Coolidge, and more — and crew wound up living in a bubble at the luxurious oceanfront retreat while shooting all six episodes from October through December 2020. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to us!
It should hardly come as a surprise that the Four Seasons Resort Maui is a five-star establishment and was even named one of the top 15 beach resorts in the US by Travel + Leisure. Guests can enjoy various restaurants, cabana-encompassed pools, high-end shops, outdoor activities, and a spa that, although not managed by Belinda (Natasha Rothwell), nevertheless looks delightful. The tropical getaway has quite the hefty price tag, with rooms ringing up at anywhere from $1,000 to — are you ready for this? — $26,000 per night, depending on which type of suite you fancy. Whew!
