Getting this far away only brings you closer. From its landscapes to its legends, romance is in the air on Lanai. Next to Hulopoe Bay is Puu Pehe, or Sweetheart Rock. The legend of Puu Pehe tells of the death of Pehe, the wife of a Lanai warrior. Her heartbroken husband buried her at the top of Puu Pehe then jumped from the 24-metre summit to the surf below, unable to shoulder his sorrow.
This palpable mystique that surrounds Lanai makes every treasured moment you spend with your loved one just a little more romantic. Share the comforts of Lanai’s exquisite resorts. Feel the trade winds as you watch a quiet sunset from Kaumalapau Harbor. Stroll on remote stretches of beach where the only other person you can see is the one walking beside you. The beauty of the Hawaiian Islands lend themselves to a romantic escape, but it is Lanai’s seclusion and tranquillity that makes it the stuff of waking dreams.
