Dreamlike beds, lovely grounds, seamless service and the freshest air you will ever breathe. Be sure to hike the trail. I was reluctant about being bored, and found I needed the serenity. The Lodge delivers just that. You get a change of pace and sunny beach at Manele...fabulous as well. Also thought it would be a pain to get to...not... More

Aloha TuckandRoll, Mahalo for your wonderful feedback about your recent stay with us. Between the abundance of upcountry activities (hiking, golf, horseback riding, UTV rides, croquet, etc.) there is plenty to do to stay active, or as you mentioned, you can relax and unwind at the beach or perhaps at The Spa. And the best part, getting a fabulous night's... More

I had the privilege of staying at the Lodge at Ko'ele this past week and all of the reviews I have heard about leading up to my trip were confirmed. I feel that the best asset the Lodge has is the warm hospitality of its staff. Come to Lana'i and experience the hotel for yourself...you will not regret it.

This lodge is a real gem! We have been 10 times and have had a great experience every time. I bring my family but it is perfect for couples & even honeymooners. My kids love the very large grounds. There are walking paths, an orchid room, a game room with board games like chess, bikes for loan, etc. There is... More

We are from Hawaii (Oahu) but Lanai is our favorite island. We usually travel there in November for our wedding anniversary but we decided to do it in December because we heard about how lovely the Christmas decorations were. The trees were beautiful and the fireplace just made it feel extra cozy, especially when you smell that wood burning. It... More

Everytime I go on vacation somewhere I unfairly compare it to the Lodge at Koele. I've never found matched tranquility and service since my stay in Lanai. :)

This is Hawai'i as it should be. Lana'i offers the best of all worlds from a top shelf beach resort to small town charm and of the course the relaxed mountain lodge. We have had the privilege of visiting since the Lodge first opened and it has retained its charm and has been thoroughly enhanced by the Four Seasons Resort... More

The Lodge at Koele will amaze anyone who hasn't really left the beaches of Hawaii to get into the hills and mountains. I love the trees, lawns, mists, birds, fountains, and fireplaces in the lobby. The rooms are all in the main lodge buildings and all very high quality design, fit and finish. The main lodge great room is wood... More

Aloha ryan69, Thank you for discovering our tranquil upcountry and for taking the time to share your experience. Great to hear you enjoyed the executive putting course - it's perfect for a friendly game or to hone your skills before teeing off at The Experience at Koele or The Challenge at Manele. Our warm staff, combined with the polished service... More

Great service. My wife observed several people with a four Seasons logo bag she had not found in the gift shops. Upon learning it was from the Spa at Manele Bay, the concierge staff ordered a new one up to us on the next shuttle to the Lodge for my wife to inspect. Within 30 minutes we had it in... More

We didn't have to fly to Switzerland or Sonoma to feel like we'd really gone someplace. Loved the Christmas decorations. If it's cold or rainy, try taking the shuttle to Manele Bay...or just curl up in front of a fireplace with a good book. http://www.hawaiilife.com/articles/2011/12/travel-vacation-lanai/ for my full review!

While there are plenty of activities at The Lodge (horseback riding, skeet shooting, hiking), it's also an excellent place to kick back with a book and a glass of wine. Take the time to wander the immaculate grounds, and observe the plentiful flowers, wild turkeys, koi, etc. Golf course was in great shape, and uncrowded. My wife raved about the... More
