The Hawaiian island of Lanai was surprising. Before going there, we didn’t know what to expect but we thought that we would be visiting a typical tropical island filled with beaches lined with coconut trees and giant resorts surround by lush jungle.

As it turned out, Lanai is nothing like anywhere we have ever been. An extremely dry and baren island, it was very few visitors and with only three choices of places to stay on the island, it doesn’t see a lot of action when it comes to the usual party goers and sun seekers.

Lanai is a more laid back choice for travellers. If you are looking to step back in time, get away from it all and unwind from the daily grind, Lanai is the place for you. Koele Lodge run by The Four Seasons feels like you should be sipping scotch in the Library while smoking a cigar with Hemmingway. The Manele Bay Four Seasons has the perfect blend of and upscale resort with an intimate relaxed atmoshpere that makes you feel right at home.
