Longing for the cat you left at home? Don't miss Lanai`s open-air sanctuary, a happy haven for spayed and neutered cats. Imagine a large playground in paradise, where cats romp and play in Hawaii's sunshine, and snooze under shady trees. Purring cats of all shapes and sizes eagerly await your visit. Our caregivers, who joyfully care for the cats, would love to meet you too. If you're interested in adopting a cat, we love matchmaking!

While I enjoyed my visit, it ended up being quite costly to go over. It’s $60- per person r/t on the ferry. Then, we had to pay $10 per person each way on the shuttle. I kind of wish it was a bit more doable,...More

Lanai Cat Sanctuary have a HUGE heart to take in and look after all these cats. I wish I could do more to help fund this Sanctuary. A truly unique experience that allows you to pat, cuddle and brush a kitty cat.

It was heartwarming to see nearly 600 cats that would have been otherwise euthanized or in their own have a safe place to play or sleep or just be cats. The staff volunteers really care and keep the grounds as clean as possible. Pull up...More

Although I miss having the cats around at the Manele Bay Hotel, it is so nice to know that the island is taking care of the cats!
