Tiny Lana’i is a private island with no stoplights, two world-class golf courses and two Four Seasons resorts that work in perfect concert with one another. Perched in the central highlands amid Cook Island pines, the Lana’i Lodge at Koele is the island’s upcountry escape with 102 rooms and suites done in a luxe country style, all with verandas looking over manicured lawns and lush tropical gardens. After a day of horseback riding or hiking, relax with a massage in the spa or have the therapist come to your suite. Dinner is served in the elegant Dining Room — think local seafood and produce grown on property. Round out your vacation with a beachy stay at the Four Seasons sister resort in Manele Bay.
In the Area
Like Four Seasons’ two Lana’i resorts, the island’s two golf courses work in perfect symbiosis. Inland, The Experience at Koele offers stunning views of mountains and lush greens, with a cooler climate, wooded slopes, terraced water hazards and the ocean in the distance. It’s a dramatic contrast to The Challenge at Manele, built on lava outcroppings above the crashing surf of Hulopo’e Bay where the Pacific Ocean is a water hazard and tee shots must clear natural gorges, ravines and rocks.
How to Get There
I loved staying here. It is especially nice for the Holiday season. The rooms are beautiful and it is up in the clounds on the island. The beach is a bit far away, however the jungle is right out the doors.
Its a little piece of heaven. We were lucky enough to spend a few nights at the resort for a business trip. Its a beautiful resort, with a white sandy beach, palm trees, hills and it honestly is breath taking. The food was fantastic! We enjoyed sitting in the outdoor jacuzzi, looking out at the beautiful ocean sipping on cocktails. The hotel itself is beautifully decorated and the staff friendly and warm. We enjoyed our stay very much!
One of the best hotels I have ever been to. Just amazing scenery on an amazing island. Connected with the resort down at the beach which is very convenient as well. Best of both worlds. And Lanai is amazing as well.
My team went to the Lanai to practice for nationals on the only clay court in Hawaii. We rented the court for 6 hours with lessons from Ryan winter. I can't say enough about Ryan. He is amazing ... So positive, fun, and energetic. He has a gift of making you feel comfortable! He definitely enhances your game. He went above and beyond the call. Thank you Ryan for the memorable experience! A big mahalo to Rae!. She treated us like Queens ... Making sure we had cold water, towels, oranges and entertained us with great stories!
The koele lodge is being turned into a wellness center and the golf course is no longer going to exist.There will be a zip line and corporate type team building activities- a treasure is lost to those of us who cherished the lodge and the golf course. It was magic up there-going to manele next month will update if any other news.
