There are only three places to stay on Lanai, but two of them are world-class resorts. Here is what makes each of them worth a stay on Lanai.
1. Four Seasons Resort Lana’i at Manele Bay. Overlooking Hulopoe Bay, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Four Seasons Resort Lana'i at Manele Bay is an ocean-side oasis bordering a marine preserve teeming with marine life and large tide pools perfect for exploring. The resort has East Asian-inspired guest rooms and suites, a state-of-the-art fitness center with ocean views and two world-ranked golf courses.
2. Four Seasons Resort Lana’i, The Lodge at Koele. Currently closed and slated to reopen in late 2015, the rustic — and very romantic — Four Seasons Resort Lana'i, The Lodge at Koele is a grand country estate in the highlands edging Lanai City. It’s luxurious, quiet and surrounded by old pines and lush gardens. The resort features afternoon tea served in the high-beamed ceilings of the Great Hall, a fragrant orchid greenhouse, two world-ranked golf courses, and the kind of impeccable service you’d expect at a Four Seasons property.
3. Hotel Lanai. Built in 1923, Hotel Lanai was once the only place you could stay on Lanai. It has 11 charming, South Pacific-style guest rooms adorned with country quilts and bamboo shades, and an in-house restaurant, Lanai City Grille, that features tapas-style dining.
