The island of Lanai is rich in contrasts, offering secluded sandy beaches, red rock fields and cool mountains yielding vistas, on a clear day, of neighbour islands. Sensei Lanai sits in Koele – the lush, green upcountry said to be named for the moisture-laden clouds that came down from the mountain gulches.  The first hike, the Hii Trail, combines the challenge of gradual elevation climbs with beautiful cultural landmarks, including an ancient Hawaiian temple known as the heiau, for a planting ceremony of the Ti leaf, a native plant currently being restored to the area, as well as breathtaking vistas of the Palawai Basin. As guests traverse Kaiholena, they’ll embark on an awe-inspiring second hike with diverse landscapes including majestic Cook pines that define the spiritual uplands of Lanai. Finally, the retreat will conclude with a captivating journey along coastal trails. The hike leads guests to a view of one of the island’s most recognizable landmarks, Puupehe, named after a Hawaiian legend of two lovers.

The Hiking Retreat at Sensei Lanai begins at USD 9,850 (single occupancy) and USD 15,450 (double occupancy). For guests looking to extend their trip pre and/or post-hiking retreat, the property is also offering a USD 900 per night add-on, inclusive of room and daily breakfast.
