Purchased by James Dole in 1922, Lanai turned into one huge pineapple plantation. Although the role of the pineapple industry on Lanai has meanwhile slightly diminished, it still plays a important economic factor.

Corporate successors to the Dole Corporation managed carefully the growth and development of this island, and tourism became a factor.

Currently Lanai is more a private retreat centered around two luxurious, award-winning resorts.




The Lodge at Koele is like a country estate located in the wooden highlands of the island.

The Manele Bay Hotel is a Mediterranean-style, beachfront resort surrounded by lush gardens and waterfalls, overlooking magnificent bays.

This private island is for those who appreciate the utmost in luxury, with a twist of adventure.







Four Seasons Resort the Lodge at Koele

At The Lodge at Koele, rejuvenation and recreation coexist in perfect harmony. Saddle up for a serene horseback ride through guava forests and ironwood groves at the Stables at Koele. Tee off at a highland course that leads through dense forests and stunning valley gorges. Surrender your tensions to a Swedish or Shiatsu massage. Lose yourself along miles of silken beaches.
