Do not miss this blast from the past if you are visiting Maui ( GO TO LANAI.!) - book well in advance ( honeymoon cottage.) take the ferry over, free shuttle to the hotel and Sara ( at Hotel.) can line you up a jeep.
The hotel ( not really a "Hotel" ) is a blast from the past, and now that "Larry E." owns the Island who knows what it`s future is - but - while you can, visit Lanai, tour the island ( 4x4 a must .) it is unspoiled and largely unvisited. Fantastic beaches / historic heritage sites / scenic wonders.
The Lanai Hotel is affordable, great ambiance, friendly staff, excellent food ( award winning.) and it even has music on Friday nights.
Manele Bay has some of the best snorkelling in all of Hawaii and you can walk to it from the ferry if you only take a day trip.
Enjoy - Mahalo.
