A September 2004 trip
to Lanai by Ramsey
Quote: Imagine romantic torch-lit walks along the beach, poolside frozen drinks and ahi sushi, ocean views, and daytime adventures. Experience the getaway of a lifetime. Visit Lanai, Hawaii.

My only complaint is that everything you purchase there comes at a premium price. You cannot have even breakfast without spending around $50 or $60.

Restaurant | "Any in the city"
We ate in town twice, at two different little places, and the menus were pretty much the same--fried stuff and more fried stuff. Everything was slathered in warm mayo or cheese, and for those who try to eat healthy, there is NO chance of that in the city. Your best bet is to stay at the lodge or at Manele.

Restaurant | "The Lodge at Koele"
If you get the "Adventure Pack," a formal dinner is included. Do not miss out on this one. It was one of the highlights of our week.
Spend time after dinner hanging out at the Lodge in the game room, on the wrap-around porch, or walking the gardens. Beautiful.
I was, however, disappointed with the snorkeling. There were not a lot of fish, which I had not expected. I didn't see anything of any interest--no sharks, no turtles, no eels, nothing.
We did this as a part of our 4x4 Adventure Package. Get the package. It's worth the money.

Attraction | "Rent a jeep for the day, hiking, sightseeing"
Drive down to the beach and take a short hike to see this amazing WW2 ship that was beached. It's stuck out in the water and looks like you can just reach out and touch it. When you drive down, be sure to go all the way, as far as you can. We stopped early and wound up walking for quite a long time.
Get a map from the Jeep dealer and go to find the petroglyphs. They are so unreal. You'll have to climb a bit, and you'll feel like you're in the middle of nowhere. Wear sneakers and sunblock for sure.

My husband had a massage and said that it was okay, but he didn't have any music either; he said that his masseuse said that their sound system had broken. Hmmm. Plug-in CD player maybe?? Something?! This too is part of the 4x4 package.
