The White Lotus Hotel Staff

If you are a fan of Mike White's (Enlightened, School of Rock) HBO hit The White Lotus about the complicated relationships between staff and their privileged, often entitled guests at the idyllic White Lotus resorts, then you know the look of the show is a big part of its appeal. The show's creators have done a splendid job of using real hotel locations in Hawaii and Sicily to stand in for the luxe, fictional White Lotus hotel chain. HGTV goes to some of those real-life locations and matches our favorite White Lotus characters with the rooms we imagine they would occupy back home.

The Four Seasons Maui Resort at Wailea

The White Lotus director Mike White took advantage of a lull in hotel stays during COVID-19 and used the luxurious Four Seasons Maui hotel in Hawaii to shoot the first season of his upstairs-downstairs HBO series. The show's production design team transformed some of the rooms, giving them a more exotic, colorful look than the more sedate, tasteful designs favored by the Four Seasons.
