Hawaii is my second home. I look forward to visiting every year and these are some of my favorite experiences, as well as inspiration for my next trip back.

These Hips Don't Lie

Large arrow left

Find your inner Hawaiian with Auntie Irene and Sandra who present the Hookipa cultural program at the Ko'ele resort on the island of Lana'i keeping the history and culture of Hawaii alive. Ho`okipa, meaning hospitality in Hawaiian, is an on-going series of interactive cultural classes created by Lanai’s kupuna, or Hawaiian elders.

You can learn how the past intertwines with the present while trying your hand and hips at classic cultural activities such as lei making, ukulele, coconut weaving, and hula dance.

The program is complimentary if you are a guest of the hotel!
