Pineap­ple trees once covered Lana’i. Most who have lived here in the last one hun­dred years have worked on the plan­ta­tion. Still a small com­mu­nity, there is a sense of be­ing very self-re­liant. It is a pretty lit­tle is­land with an in­cred­i­ble heart, and a true get­away-from-it-all place to spend time with some­one you love. A bil­lion­aire who has two lux­ury ho­tels, and con­tin­ues to keep the is­land un­de­vel­oped, owns much of Lana’i.

Splurge on Lana’i: Pri­vate Is­land Ambience Per­vades at the Four Sea­sons

The Four Sea­sons Re­sort Lana’i has com­pleted an ex­ten­sive ren­o­va­tion, and has re­cently re­opened. What sets this ho­tel apart is the se­cluded beach­front lo­ca­tion with nary an­other ho­tel in sight, the over-the-top lux­u­ri­ous ren­o­va­tions, and the one-of-a-kind ex­pe­ri­ences. It does not hurt that Chef Nobu has a res­tau­rant here, or that one of the best spas in Hawai’i is here ei­ther. And who wants to bother with a room key in your swim shorts? Here, you wear a bracelet that pro­vides ac­cess to your room. Pre­pare to be pam­pered ev­ery step of the way. FourSea­

Thrifty on Lana’i: Find Funky Fun Value At Ho­tel Lana’i

This lit­tle gem is not on the beach, nor does it have re­sort ameni­ties. What is does have, how­ever, is an ambience of old Hawai’i that is now sadly van­ish­ing on most is­lands. Plan­ta­tion owner James Dole, who wanted a ho­tel for his ex­ec­u­tives, built Ho­tel Lana’i in the 1920’s. Here you will find board and bat­ten walls typ­i­cal of the time, Hawai­ian quilts on the beds, lo­cal art on the walls, and the great lit­tle res­tau­rant called Lana’i City Grille here is sim­ply a bonus.
