Take in the "pine trees, cool air, and highlands mist on a tropical island once famous for pineapples." The plantation-style lodge, with an orchid house and an old Hawaiian church on its grounds, has "wide verandas with settees and chaises" plus ample walking trails. Rooms with warm European textiles come with carved headboards and patios or balconies. Enjoy garden and pond views at Terrace, over bistro fare like crispy fish cakes with black lentil salad. The spa offers a warm volcanic-stone massage.
