Lanai

Lanai, Hawaii is the smallest of the Hawaiian Islands, and offers the most serenity. Picture a tropical island with sheer cliffs, Crystal blue waters, cool upcountry hills, white sand beaches, two of the highest ranked golf courses in the world - designed by Norman and Nicklaus, yet with not one but two renown Four Seasons Resorts, but without the distractions of traffic lights, fast food outlets or hustle and bustle. Lanai is located somewhere between paradise and your own private island.

 

While there is little development on Lanai, there is luxury. Two of the three major hotels on island are luxurious, though in different ways. So really, you CAN have it all on Lanai. You can spend your days exploring the island’s rugged natural splendors, and your nights basking in extreme luxury. Trust us, Lanai has been good enough for a long list of celebrities for centuries who enjoy the unique combination of isolation and luxury.

Lanai has 80,000 acres of countryside perfectly suited for off-road adventure. In fact, only 10% of the island’s roads are paved. The rest require four-wheel drive. Surprisingly, Lanai boasts two of the world’s best golf courses. No, we’re not kidding. Check out our Tours below for some extreme and unusual adventures, including ocean kayaking, horseback riding, sporting clays, archery, off-road 4X4 excursions, sport-fishing charters, catamaran sailing & snorkeling, seasonal whale watching, plus some amazing hikes. We’ve been there – we’ve done them!

 

Lanai does have an “urban” spot, Lanai City. It was built in 1924 by James Dole, who had purchased 98% of the land on the island for his Dole Pineapple Plantation. Today, it is a tiny but charming community of residences, shops, restaurants and services. Dole Park is at the heart of the town, a small town square bordered by towering Cook Pines, where the residents still gather. Be sure to explore Lana'i City through our experience and photos. Lanai is only a short ferry ride away from Maui.

 

Beyond the resorts, Lanai is wide open for exploring from the nesting turtles on Polihua Beach, to Shipwreck Beach, to the Luahiwa Petroglyphs. Perhaps the best treat is, experienced hikers, accompanied by a guide can ascend the Munro Trail to the summit of Lanaihale, the highest point on Lani for the famous "5-island view." And at night ... the skies are oh so clear, far from any bright lights.

 

If romance in the way of an escape, honeymoon or destination wedding are in your plans, Lana'i may be perfect. With two luxurious Four Seasons Resorts, one beach side and the other in the rolling hills you'll find your romantic home from home. Lana'i provides breathtaking scenery and magnificent surroundings, pure air and crystal clear waters, gourmet cuisine, luxurious accommodations and the famous Aloha spirit. The only thing missing - crowds!

 

When it comes to weddings ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION knows the best destinations and resorts - and Lana'i is extremely deserving of your romantic considerations. Whatever you imagine for your dream wedding ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION and Lana'i can make it come true. The romance, the scenery, the island music - it's all here.

Golf

The Challenge at Manele: A signature course designed by Jack Nicklaus, the Four Seasons Manele Bay Resort is a championship 18-hole course with magnificent views of the ocean. Three of the holes are built on the spectacular cliffs overlooking Hulopo’e Bay.

The Experience at Ko’ele: Created by Greg Norman and Ted Robinson, this mountain-style golf course near the Lodge at Ko’ele offers dramatic elevation changes and panoramic vistas of neighboring islands Molokai and Maui. Its fairways, surrounded by soaring pines and eucalyptus trees,  play through wooded ravines and past lakes, streams and waterfalls.

 

Lanai Pine Sporting Clays

This is an amazing and fun sporting course. Jay entered the course with no interest what so ever and came away highly impressed. They offer a clay course, archery range and air rifle gallery. If you enter with the slightest coordination, the instructors will have you hitting every target in sight. The rustic solar-powered sporting clay course meanders through a valley of ironwood and eucalyptus groves. Clay targets mimic traditional game such as flushed pheasant and rabbit. Next door is a 12-target archery range. The two station rifle gallery could be a family activity. Kids can do just about all of this. It is a unique experience and more fun than we could ever describe.

 

Whale Watching

From mid-November through mid-May, approximately 3,000 humpback whales travel from Alaska to this area to birth their young and mate.

 

Munro Trail

Accessible by four-wheel drive or by foot, the Munro Trail is a 16-mile roundtrip that takes you through mountain grasslands and forests of bamboo and koa to Lana’ hale, the highest peak on the island. From this point you can see from three to five other Hawaiian islands. We suggest hiring an experienced guide.

 

Fun on the Water

Be sure to experience your favorite forms on on- or under-water entertainment while in Lana'i. Lana'i has been rated one of the Top 10 snorkel and scuba sites in the world by Skin Diver Magazine. The protected coastline has become a year-round habitat for hundreds of Spinner Dolphins. The scenery consists of rugged coastlines, protected bays, sea caves, a complex eco-system, a south shore where cliffs rise a thousand feet above the surface, and spectacular views of four islands. Below the surface the Lana'i waters hold many treasures for you to discover, including a unique underwater Cathedral, lava tubes, coral grottos, a long barrier reef, sea turtles, old shipwrecks, moray eels, white tip reef sharks and tropical fish of every description of color imaginable.

 

Not to miss out on these natural wonders chose from the many water activities available in Lana'i such as a Morning Snorkel Sail / Sunset Sail / Introductory Scuba / Beach Dives / Cathedral Dives / Adventuer Scuba / Ocean Kayaking and even private charters and customized adventures.

 

Surfing

If not, but you have an interest in learning to surf in a legendary location don't fret. ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION knows the best surf schools.
