Oh, those billionaires and their crazy dreams. Larry Ellison, who came in at number 5 on the Forbes list of the world’s richest billionaires (because there are enough billionaires to make up a list), bought 98% of the Hawaiian island Lanai back in 2012 for a cool $300 million. Now, 97% of the island’s hotel rooms are out of commission. It’s part of Ellison’s grand plan to make Lanai “the first economically viable, 100% green community.”

It just got a whole lot harder to stay on this Hawaiian island paradise | Road Warrior Voices

Considering those resorts were all getting a little long in the tooth per recent reviews, this is probably not such a bad idea.

I stayed at the lodge several years ago and it's spectacular. The golf courses are also wonderful.
