We know how to watch the hit HBO series, The White Lotus, but where do we go to experience the magic and dysfunction of The White Lotus Resort? The show’s introduction to stunning visuals are all thanks to the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea. Whether you’ve seen the show or are just captivated by the aesthetic, we’ll dive into the next destinations for your luxury vacations!

Season 1 at Wailea Beach

The first season of The White Lotus was filmed at the Four Seasons while it was closed during the height of the coronavirus pandemic. The filming took place over the course of 8 months in 2020 solely at the luxury resort and Wailea Beach.

What to do:

  • Channel your inner Shane: Hike the scenic Pipiwai Trail in the Iao Valley, just like Shane did on his quest for spiritual enlightenment.
  • Relive Armond’s meltdown: Sip on cocktails at the resort’s oceanfront Humuhumunukunukuapua’a restaurant, where Armond’s stress reached its peak. Did you even read that? Be honest.
  • Relax like Olivia Mossbacher: Rent a paddleboard and explore the crystal-clear waters of Mokulua Islands, just off the coast of Oahu.

Season 2 in Sicily

In season 2, the cast trades flip-flops for Dolce & Gabbana as they explore the opulent San Domenico Palace, Taormina, A Four Seasons Hotel. Perched on a clifftop overlooking the waters of the Ionian Sea, this historic palazzo offers breathtaking views and unparalleled luxury.

What to do:

  • Wander through ancient streets: Follow in the footsteps of Harper and Ethan as they explore the charming medieval town of Taormina, with its winding alleys and stunning Greek amphitheater.

  • Seek divine intervention: Visit the majestic Mount Etna, Europe’s largest active volcano, as Tanya did on her spiritual quest.

  • Unwind in seaside bliss: Bask on the golden sands of Giardini Naxos beach, where the guests enjoyed luxurious beachside picnics.


It’s been confirmed that The White Lotus is returning for season 3 and will be filmed in Thailand in 2024. We can’t wait to see the filming locations for S3!
