My friend Marie is going on a Honeymoon. We started on Oahu, and now I’m starting to wonder, Marie, may I come along? I’ll meet you in Lanai.
… Oh, to live at The Four Seasons on Lanai. I don’t think my pinkie finger would ever touch anything again. If you are looking to feel boneless and decadent, and RICH (or poor once you look at the bill), go to Lanai and stay at The Four Seasons on the beach. It is to die for.
The beach is set in a bay where spinner dolphins are ALWAYS at play and you can go swim with them anytime. The view is jaw dropping. And the staff, well, it’s The Four Seasons five star experience where your glass will never be half full; it will always just be full.
They also have a mountain facility that’s fun to visit. It’ s like an opulent hunting lodge with leather furniture and dead animals on the walls. A great pub and you can play croquet. It looks like it belongs in Alaska to me.
The town of Lanai, is like Stars Hollow on the Gilmore Girls with one big square park in the middle. The park is surrounded by a few quaint eateries, a market, and a church. Everyone in town knows each other. And everything closes at 9pm.
The Four Seasons has a complimentary shuttle (of course) so you can go between the two hotel sites, and the town, and the airport … you will not want for anything.
You could also stay at the Pineapple Plantation on Lanai, but if you’re going to do the Lanai thing, I’d say go for broke. Even if even for just one night of, “Holy shi*?! Is this my life?! Damn.”
This trip is what Mitch and I did for our 30th birthdays, (and Zoey’s 2nd). It was the best birthday I’ve ever had. Ever.
I’m going to dream about it for the rest of my life.
God Bless Lanai, (go there, if only for one night, go there ).
