THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS UNTIL LATE 2016. Refurbished as a Four Seasons Resort, this country property is unique among Hawaii's top-of-the-line hotels. Most others are located on the shoreline, but this one sits in Lanai's central highlands, a cool 1,600 feet above sea level. It takes its name from the nearby sugar cane farming region that lies above quaint Lanai City, the island's only town. Deluxe rooms are surrounded by groves of Norfolk pine, banyan, eucalyptus and jacarandas. The feeling here is that of a grand estate, with the use of heavy timbers, high-beamed ceilings and natural stone fireplaces. A stately Great Hall leads to a spectacular porch that presents a perfect setting for afternoon tea. A library and trophy room furthers the feeling that you are in a grand house rather than a hotel. Activities are what any visitor to a country manor would expect: shooting, croquet, horseback riding, swimming, tennis and garden walks. The eighteen-hole Manele Golf Course is designed by Jack Nicklaus.
