This hotel stands out even within the impressive portfolio of luxury properties in Hawaii. It looks out onto Hulopoe Beach, winding down the hill with a spread of exotic gardens. The rooms are decorated with murals showing scenes from the island’s history, and the spa offers some wonderfully indulgent treatments.
Less developed and quieter than some of the main islands, Lanai is a romantic and tranquil resort. It has some of the most secluded upscale resort hotels, as well as incredibly scenic golf courses. Sightseeing should take in the Garden of the Gods and Puu Pehe, both of which have eerie lunar landscapes.
