Opened in 1923, Hotel Lanai has always embraced its rustic charm. However, following a renovation started in May, the hotel reopened early this month with a fresh look while retaining its historic charm. Designed by John Milander Architects Inc., and renovated by Lanai Builders, the 10 guest rooms, main lobby, common areas and on-site restaurant Lanai City Bar & Grille all feature upscale, modern rustic touches, such as grass-cloth wallpaper, bamboo and natural wicker furniture. The aloha spirit is kept alive, too, with Hawaiian vintage decor and historic photos of the land and resort.
