Getting to Lanai
There is no direct service to Lanai from the continental United States. Instead, fly to Honolulu International Airport (HNL) or Kahului Airport (OGG) in Maui, where you can connect to several local airlines with service to Lanai Airport (LNY). For those flying into Maui, you can travel to Lanai's Manele Harbor from Maui's Lahaina Harbor through the Expeditions Ferry service. There are five round-trips daily. Ferry trips take roughly an hour. For more information call (800) 695-2624, (808) 661-3756 or visit www.go-lanai.com.
You can also elevate your Lanai experience by taking a private flight with Lanai Air. Offering luxury air service for guests of the Four Seasons Resort Lanai, Lanai Air flights provide the fastest connection between Honolulu and Lanai, and are customized to each guest’s arrival time.
Staying on Lanai
Lanai has two world-class resorts, the Four Seasons Resort Lanai and the Four Seasons Resort Lanai, The Lodge at Koele (currently closed for renovations). The historic Hotel Lanai can be found in Lanai City.
The weather on Lanai is pleasant and drier than other islands. Lanai City sits at nearly 1,700 feet, where the warmest months reach about 72º F, so bring a light jacket. Temperatures at Manele Bay and Hulopoe Bay are usually about 10º to 12º higher.
Traveling on Lanai
The easiest way to travel from the airport or ferry to your hotel is via taxis, or by renting a car. It's strongly recommended that visitors book cars in advance because supply is limited. You may want to consider booking a rental 4-wheel drive in advance from Dollar Rent A Car in Lanai City for exploring the special sites around the island because remote areas can be difficult (or impossible) to access in a non-four-wheel drive vehicle. There are daily shuttles available throughout the day for guests at Four Seasons on the island. The Resort also offers jeep rentals to guests.
