Lanai is a one-horse town with only one city, that being Lanai City. Make no mistake; though the island of Lanai has only a single city, the accommodations on Lanai are fit for a king. Microsoft founder Bill Gates liked Lanai so much, that in 1995 he selected the island of Lanai as the site for his wedding. Since then, resorts on Lanai have welcomed a steady flow of visitors. The 2 world-class resorts on Lanai receiving much of the attention are the Four Seasons Manele Bay Hotel, Lanai City and the Four Seasons Lodge at Koele.
