The words "Hawaii" and "paradise" go hand in hand, but no island in the region lives up to this reputation more than the lush and utterly unspoiled Lanai. Once the world's largest pineapple plantation, this hidden gem is now the go-to for those looking to veer off the well-trodden tourist track, without forgoing any of the luxury experiences Hawaii is famous for. Here's where to go for the ultimate escape.
Four Seasons Resort Lanai
With just three hotels on the island, all well-regarded, you can't really go wrong-but this ultra-exclusive resort gets our top pick for its ocean-front setting and airy, oversized guest rooms.
The beloved Californian hotspot brings its divine farm-to-table dining to the Four Seasons Resort. Situated right off the beach, it's guaranteed to be your pre- and post-dip go-to.
From speed-boat snorkeling excursions and whale-watching to sunset catamaran sailing with canapes and champagne, a boating trip is the best way to explore Lanai's picturesque coastline.
