When two of the three hotels on the entire island are luxury resorts, what is a budget traveler on Lana’i to do? It took me a few days, but slowly I started see through the luxury haze and notice opportunities for the mid-range and budget traveler. They seemed to be camouflaged to some extent – a bit overshadowed by the Four Seasons luxury resorts. But after digging deeper, I can say that Lana’i isn’t out of reach for people who are traveling on a tighter budget.
However, keep in mind, it’s Hawaii and things in Hawaii don’t come cheap – but many times by compromising one thing, it allows you to do another activity that might be more expensive. For example, save a lot of money on lodging if you are willing to camp and that will allow you to afford a high-end dinner at one of the Four Seasons restaurants. Or stay in the luxurious accommodations, but go to local cafes in Lana’i City when it comes to eating. However you want to spin it – just set your trip budget and see how you can fit the puzzle pieces together that works for your needs...
