Lānaʻi – Island Wrapped in a Rainbow

26 Oct

Learning Hawaiian Culture with Auntie Irene at the Four Seasons LanaiBarbara Weibel, of Hole in the Donut blog, was our guest blogger in September, 2012. Barbara really “got” the essence of Lanai – the unusual combination of sophistication and genuine Hawaiiana – what we here think of as the more genteel traditions of Hawaiian culture. From learning ʻukulele with the aunties at the Four Seasons Lodge at Koele, to golfing on one of the island’s stunning golf courses, to lingering at Hotel Lanai with all home-made items for breakfast, Barbara appreciated the moments that make a place stand out – not with bright lights in this case, but with a quiet force that will lure you back again and again.

Please enjoy reading Barbara’s articles over on her blog:

Andy on Lanai: Here and Now and Back in Time

26 Sep

photo of the charming inn, Hotel Lanai, on the island of Lanai in HawaiiAndy Hayes and his partner Nick Church spent a week on the island of Lānaʻi in August. As first time visitors to Hawaii, they were continuously amazed at the warm hospitality, the scenic beauty, and the diverse and eclectic activities. Nick, an amateur golfer, even managed to get a birdie during his round of golf, and the Twittersphere lit up as a result of his sharing!

Be sure to check their visit to Lanai travel summary here.

Then, visit Andy’s blog and read these great, in-depth articles covering things to do, where to stay, and how to relax, on the beautiful Hawaiian island of Lānaʻi!
