Hurricane Ian Status

After Hurricane Ian devastated the little island of Fort Myers Beach Sept. 28, our Lani Kai family is still here, and our building is still standing strong. We are currently not accepting reservations, but if you have already placed one with us through October 2023, we are canceling each and every one. If you placed any funds on that reservation, it is automatically being refunded to you upon cancellation. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this, and we hope to welcome you again soon. As our family has proudly stated for over 40 years, “Thanks for Being Here.”
