Find peace, tranquility and a true getaway on Lanai. Away from the crowds and hustle of everyday life, Lanai is a destination of untouched tranquility—a place for rest, relaxation, and exploration. Though it’s less than ten miles from Maui, with less than 30 miles of paved road and not a single stop light, Lanai, Hawaii’s smallest inhabited island, can seem like a different world.

Lanai is best known for its two exquisite Four Seasons resorts and championship-level golf courses at The Challenge at Manele and The Experience at Koele. But luxury Lanai isn’t just for golfers!—wellness enthusiasts will find world-class amenities and foodies can enjoy peerless dining options at nearly a dozen hotel eateries.

And if your idea of a rejuvenating getaway involves seclusion and natural beauty, Hawaii’s “most enticing island” has plenty to offer. Keep your eyes open for dolphins at Hulopoe Bay, or go whale watching. You can explore the back-roads and red spires of Keahiakawelo (Garden of the Gods) by 4-wheel, or see the pine tree-lined trails by horseback. You can hike up to Sweetheart Rock or take a guided tour of the island petroglyphs. While Lanai’s romantic elegance and peaceful seclusion aren’t for every traveler, that is exactly why some consider this island getaway to be a true paradise.
