Positive Reviews

Deeply Relaxing

Guests rave about the tranquility afforded by the resort's spectacular grounds and highland setting. Nature-lovers rate this resort for its peaceful hiking trails with breathtaking views. Sporting folk like to shake off the city on the 18-hole golf course, while others stick with the croquet lawn. .

Taste Sensation

Many reviewers remark on the scrumptious food and drinks consumed during their stay. The acclaimed Dining Room restaurant with its four-course Chef's tasting menu is a huge hit with guests. Complimentary poolside snacks and healthy fruit water are also a big hit with travelers. .

Island Nights

In true Hawaiian spirit, the resort's nightly entertainment program brings guests to life. In the Grand Hall, guests like to drink cocktails and the resort's signature hot chocolate while listening to the local musicians play traditional instruments. On Friday evenings, the resort's resident band play Hawaiian classics and Broadway favorites. .

Negative Reviews

The Shuttle Conundrum

The cost of the hotel's shuttle service is sometimes the cause of guest gripes. Some report being unaware of any cost and finding out later; others are aware but still find the cost surprisingly high when the final bill comes in. A fair few guests mention expensive travel costs across the island in general. .

Deep-Pocket Dining

Some guests find the resort's high-end onsite dining options rather pricey, especially those traveling with families. Despite the miniscule city's size, several guests report finding slightly better value eateries in downtown Lana'I-though their hours of operation are limited and none are what most would consider cheap. .

Unreasonable Response to Reasonable Requests

The resort's staff are the subject of many a glowing compliment but can sometimes aggravate guests who perceive some members as unresponsive and inflexible when reasonable requests are made. Those looking for upgrades might be disappointed unless there is adequate cause to do so. .
