THE ISLAND OF LANA'I
It's a place just a few miles off the coast of Maui, yet

dining and world-class spa treatments. All this, surrounded by miles of
untouched wilderness and silken beaches...a mere twenty-five minutes by
air from Honolulu.

target shooting, archery, lawn bowling, and a perfectly manicured croquet
lawn. Lanai's spectacular Lodge At Koele is home to a fitness center,
tennis courts, an executive putting green, and The Experience at Koele

Traveler. The Lodge at Koele also hosts the Visiting Artist Program, where
celebrated chefs, authors, and musicians share their talents.
