Seems like a lovely combination of quiet/chill, with enough to do (in combo with lounging at the beach) to make a lovely week of vaca. Thoughts? Thanks!

Honestly, a full week on Lana'i is too long - unless you're a veteran Hawai'i visitor who is looking to specifically get away from everything and everyone and set aside any desires to see new or old favorite things on another Island.

Also - lodging is very expensive on Lana'i - you have three hotel choices, and two are Four Seasons managed resorts. The third is a nice hotel in town - but you'll need to take a bus to the Manele Bay resort if you want beach/pool time.

3 full days is about right for Lana'i - and it's easily combinable with time on Maui when you use the convenient ferry service from Lahaina.

Further research over the weekend, i'm sure you're right about this. continuing to look at other options, thanks for your feedback.
