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:

Barbara also featured numerous Photos of the Day from her trip; be sure to just search her site for “lanai” and you will see them – with an occasional porch story mixed in! Easier still, you can visit Barbara’s Lanai Flickr set to see all of these gorgeous images in large format.

3 Aug

Dave and Christine hiking the Munro TrailDave & Deb, of the globe-trotting travel blog The Planet D, recently spent a week on visiting Lanai as guests of the Lanai Visitors Bureau (thatʻs us). We think you will love their answers to the question, “What is there to do on Lānaʻi?”

You can get a glimpse from this entry we posted immediately after their trip – it is a list of selected tweets, Instagram photos, and Facebook messages. But for the real deal, we suggest you visit their blog and read these in-depth reports on the land, sea, spa, cat, and dining adventures on the Hawaiian island of Lānaʻi:

Sheila and Andy Beal

Our next New Media Artist to visit Lānaʻi is Sheila Beal, creator of the Go Visit Hawaii blog. Though her home base is North Carolina, Sheila has a tremendous enthusiasm for visiting the Aloha State. Her articles resonate with visitors because they are all written from the visitor’s perspective. She understands the challenges of planning a vacation to Hawaiʻi based on her own experiences and so she’s able to help visitors make their plans in a very practical way.

Sheila’s husband, Andy, provides the photography and videos for Go Visit Hawaii. Together, they’re a dynamic duo for Hawaii vacation planning.

Please connect with Sheila and Andy at any of these locations on line, and be sure to follow Sheila on Twitter (and follow Andy too!) for updates before, during, and after their stay here in the Hawaiian Islands.
