Lodge at Koele of Forseasons Resort is the largest wooden building in State of Hawaii and got number one hotel ranking in the United States.
Room is not an extraordinarily big but it has calm and relax atmosphere.
A passage to the guest rooms is kind of open air so we can enjoy highland breeze.
When we were enjoying welcome drink, cat sat on the chair and relax beside us. It is very strange combination, cat and luxury hotel.
Because she is always made much of, she was no guard against the people.
It is a main dinning room. Japanese guide book says people have to take jacket in this restaurant if you have not they rent it. But actually is like this.
Many men wore shorts. According to English guide book the dress cord is "Resort Casual"
Guitar was performed and fire were burning in the big fireplaces of both side of dinning room.
Picture from upstairs. Tastes of this restaurant was not bad and price was half compared with Japanese first class hotel restaurant.
There was a wide library. It had not many books but luxury books of paintings.
I had chosen the cheap hotels when I traveled around the Hawaii, because I did not stay for enjoying hotel life. But my wife alway complained this, so this time I chose deluxe hotels.
It is $390 for one night. (at this time Yen is very strong to daller, $1=78yen)
この日泊まる予定のフォーシーズンズのロッジ アット コエレはこの町はずれにあります。
The only town of Lanai Isl. is Lanai City, it is about 10mils north from the Manele Bay. This is main street of this town, 1700ft high from sea level and 90% people, but just 2700 people, are living in this town. It is very quiet, no signal and neon light.
Foreseasons resort, Lodge at Koele, I intended to stay that night, is on the outskirts of this town.
This Island was developed by James Dole as Pineapple Plantation and he created Dole Park in the center of this town.
Even called park it is just a open space and town buildings, super markets, restaurants and souvenir shops around it.
These are cook pines(Norfolk pine), symbol trees of Lanai Isl. These are standing up straight over 100ft.
George Munro, hired ranch manger, made workmen to plant cook pines to catch moisture at dry island from the passing cloud. It was effectual, Lanai city has much rain and many trees around the town.
