Koele Lodge

Lana‘i City, Maui

The Lodge at Koele is consistently listed by Condé Nast Traveler among the top hotels worldwide since opening in 1990. It was again voted as a top rated U.S. property by discriminating travelers in 2007. A favorite resort hideaway, this award winning design was inspired by the island's first Western residence as a Kama‘āina home setting, welcoming visitors to enjoy the island hospitality. Its traditional Hawaiian architecture blends beautifully in the island's natural environment.
