The Lodge at Koele is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting that is completely different than any other hotel exoerience on any other island. The hotel sits at a higher elevation and is surrounded by tall trees and lush vegetation. You get a terrific "Four Seasons" welcome and the service is excellent.
Advantages over Manele Bay - cooler temperature, totally different landscape, peaceful, and a short (1 mile) walk into town. Shuttles are also available to take you into town or down to Manele Bay.
Disadvantages - They have instituted a non-reciprocal pool policy, which means that if you stay at the Lodge, you cannot use the pool facilities at Manele, and vice-versa. This may be an issue if it is raining in Koele and sunny at Manele. However, there are attendants on the beach that can set you up in lounge chairs and take care of you.
May was a great time to be on Lanai'i, but keep in mind that if you go the last week in May, there will be High School graduations happenning, which means that some of the local restaurants in town will not be open late.
Rental Car - the only "Name" rental car agency on the island is Dollar. A jeep rental through Dollar was about $150 per day. Yes, per day. However, there are some good local rentals, like "Fred's" which are much cheaper.
