Hello to All--
I have been reading your posts and would love your thoughts on a few questions I have about returning to Lanai. i thank you in advance for your generosity.
I visited last in 2005, shortly after the Four Seasons took over the properties at the beach and lodge and had a fantastic trip. The folks were lovely, as was the resort. I have been excited to return.
Timing: Last visit was in mid-May. We did see dolphins from the hotel and whales during our shuttle from Lanai to Maui. This time we are thinking about November (around Thanksgiving). I would imagine it would be crowded--but thought the marine sightings might be better. Also, how is the weather then?
Four Seasons Manele Bay: I have been reading reports and it sounds as though the hotel might need refurbishing (musty, mold, field mice). What are other's experiences?
Food/Activities: The restaurants downtown (except the Grille) were only average. Any new ones? Also, this time we would like to snorkel/scuba/go horseback riding. Recommendations?
Again, thank you in advance for any thoughts you may have--I will return the favor with a trip report upon my return!
Best to All,
