Fast Facts

Lanai City, which is located upcountry at 1,700 feet, is the island’s capital. Here, you’ll find shops and restaurants near Dole Park. Lanai also sports two luxury hotels, the Four Seasons Resort Lanai and Four Seasons Lodge at Koele. Lanai’s tall pine trees were not native to the island. They were planted here in 1878.

In 1911, New Zealand naturalist George Munro started planting additional Cook Island Pines, each of which absorbs up to 200 gallons of water from the atmosphere each day and drips moisture into the ground. On a drier island, such as Lanai, this can be incredibly useful.
