Central Lanai

Wide open plains dotted with Cook pine trees give Central Lanai a more rustic feel than the other Hawaiian Islands. The higher elevations of Central Lanai also make for cooler temperatures similar to Upcountry Maui. If you’re traveling to Central Lanai from Hulopoe Bay you’ll pass through the Palawai Basin, an area once covered with pineapple fields. To the east, the Munro Trail leads to Lanaihale, Lanai’s highest peak.

The geographic and cultural epicenter of the island is in Lanai City. Centered around Dole Park, you’ll discover one of a kind shops, local dining and unique art galleries in Lanai City. You’ll also find the historic Hotel Lanai, which has welcomed guests since 1923. Just up the street is the lavish Four Seasons Resort Lanai, The Lodge at Koele. The Lodge is unlike any other resort in Hawaii featuring fine dining, horseback riding, tennis, archery, and a clay shooting range.
