A Trip Styler Guide to Lanai

Posted on November 20, 2013

[trip style = sun + luxe + active/adventure + beach]

You go to the Private Island to decompress and to replenish. Unhindered by glitzy boutiques, be-seen hotspots or camera-toting crowds, Lanai lets you be—be with nature, be your own explorer, be with your loved one{s} and, most importantly, be yourself.

Hawaii’s answer to a far-flung escape accomplishes this pure vacation cocktail by keeping it simple and slow. With only 3,000 people and 29 miles of paved roads, there are no stoplights, only stop signs. The speed limit in town is a mere 20mph; on the ‘highway’ the limit inches up to a roaring 45mph. One gas station fuels the island. One car rental agency—same owner as the gas station {someone’s a savvy business person}—offers Jeeps to visiting explorers. One town square hosts the hub of activity. Two grocery stores and a string of cafes feed the locals. Three hotels house guests.

Staying true to its tone, there are no big-operation tourist attractions. The island’s natural assets are the attraction. In fact, the closest thing to a tourist activity I did was take a ukulele lesson {pronounced ooo-koo-le-le} from Aunty Irene, a longtime local, who taught me my favorite song, “somewhere over the rainbow,” and to be in the moment—one of Lanai’s richest exports.
