This Hotel is Waking Up the Sleepy Island of Lanai
Lanai, a sleepy former pineapple plantation, has entered the spotlight. Following the island’s purchase by tech billionaire Larry Ellison in 2012, the Four Seasons Resort Lanai underwent an overhaul that reduced the number of guest rooms from 286 to 213 and shook off their dated look with mahogany floors and walls of slate and teak. Guests can dine at outposts of Nobu and Malibu Farm, take flying lessons, learn to make leis, hike, ride horses, or go off-roading. From $1,150. —Sandra Ramani.
