The Pines of Lana’i

The island of Lana’i is also known as the Pineapple Island. Until the late 1980s, a large portion of the island was dedicated to growing the tropical fruit—the world’s largest pineapple plantation at the time.

Lana’i is sparsely populated with approximately 3,200 residents. Lana’i City is the only town you will find here and there are just three places to stay: two Four Seasons resorts and the Hotel Lana’i. The island is blessed with gorgeous pine trees. They are everywhere and they give the island a different feel.
