Brief History:

Lanai was first sighted by westerners on February 25th, 1779, from the deck of the HMS resolution. The island was purchased in 1922 by the president of Dole Food Company and turned into the world's largest pineapple plantation. Today Lanai is sparsely populated but is home to two world-class golf courses and two world-class resorts. It is often called, "Hawaii's most exclusive island."
