Only nine miles from Maui yet a world away, Lanai can feel like two places. The first is found in luxurious resorts where visitors can indulge in world-class amenities and championship-level golf at The Challenge at Manele and The Experience at Koele. The other is found bouncing along the island’s rugged back-roads in a 4-wheel drive exploring off the beaten path treasures like Keahiakawelo (Garden of the Gods) and Polihua Beach. In fact, only 30 miles of Lanai’s roads are paved. The smallest inhabited island in Hawaii, Lanai offers big enticements to its visitors. From the stunning views atop the pine-lined Munro Trail to watching the acrobatic spinner dolphins from romantic Hulopoe Bay, Lanai is a special place where you’re sure to find serenity, adventure and intimacy. If you want to get away from it all, get away to Lanai.
There is no direct service to Lanai from the continental United States. Instead, fly to Honolulu International Airport or Kahului Airport in Maui, where you can connect to several local airlines with service to Lanai Airport.
The weather on Lanai is pleasant and drier than other islands. Lanai City sits at nearly 1,700 feet, where the warmest months reach about 72º F so bring a light jacket. Temperatures at Manele and Hulopoe Bay are usually about 10º to 12º higher.
Imagine your own secluded island. Envision saying your vows as gentle trade winds blow off of Hulopoe Bay. Picture an intimate ceremony under the stars in the cool uplands of Central Lanai, shared with the ones you love. Through the luxury and impeccable service of its world-class resorts, Lanai provides an idyllic setting to take your first steps into a richer world.
Memories are only moments away from being created.
