Manele Bay

Lāna‘i City, Maui

The original Mänele Bay Hotel is the first major expression of "Kama‘āina Architecture" in Hawai‘i. This five-star, 249 room, luxury resort is nestled on a sloped hillside that leads to Hulopo‘e Beach on the island of Lāna‘i. A multicultural expression is evident throughout the site in its aesthetic design and five landscaped gardens. Voted among the world's top ten tropical resorts by readers of Conde Nast Traveler, Mānele Bay leaves a memorable impression of the cultural influences of Hawai'i, Asia, and the Mediterranean.
