Visit Lanai: Top 10 Reasons Why I Love Lanai

I can't believe I finally visited Lanai last year, and I really can't wait until I visit again.

Carriage ride through the city
Here are the top 10 things I love about Lanai:

  1. The Aloha Spirit - The Aloha Spirit was evident everywhere we went - at the airport, at our hotel, and all throughout the city.  Riding on the shuttle I noticed drivers would constantly wave at each other; while on the carriage everyone we passed waved hello; even guests at our hotel exuded the aloha spirit - greeting us with "Aloha!"
  2. No driving necessary - My husband loved that he didn't need to drive us around while on vacation.  The Four Seasons Resort Lanai provides a shuttle that transports guests between Manele Bay and the Lodge at Koele, as well as through Lanai City.
  3. No car/booster seats needed - Since we didn't rent a car and a shuttle took us around the city, we didn't need to travel with a car or booster seat.  For our family that meant 3 less things to have to transport with us!
  4. Nature's beauty -  The beauty of Lanai is evident everywhere - through the beaches, the mountains - everywhere!
  5. Island charm - You won't find any "big box" stores or national fast food chains.  Instead you'll find local shops offering the best of Lanai.
  6. Wildlife - Seeing wild turkeys roam the grounds of the Manele Bay and watching deer run across the road was quite a sight!
  7. Dining - Whether you have a preference for fine dining or local specialties in a casual setting, Lanai has a nice variety of dining venues to choose from.
  8. Short plane flight - Since I live on Oahu, the plane ride to Lanai is just a short 30-minute plane ride.
  9. No traffic - Lanai has no stoplights and only 3 paved roads, which is a pretty good indication that you'll almost never run into traffic.
  10. Something for everyone - Honeymooners wanting to be pampered, families wanting an adventure, or friends wanting a golf day will find what they need.  Relax in the spa, splash on the beach, go on a helicopter ride, indulge in fine dining, learn about Lanai's history and culture...there is just so much to do - which is why I need to go back to Lanai - there is so much more I want to do!
