The 9 Best Family Friendly Resorts in Hawaii


7. Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa, Maui

Part zoo, part hotel, part waterpark, part food court and part mall is how this large resort can be described. Essentially what this means for families is that the kids will never run out of things to do! On-site you will find parrots, penguins, flamingos and cranes to admire, along with beach activities such as kayaking and snorkeling. But it is the pool complex that is perhaps the most impressive of all. The children’s area features a rope bridge and a 150-foot water slide, along with two free form swimming pools with waterfalls and a bar for the adults. There are a total of five restaurants with many kid friendly options and the large standard rooms are big enough to accommodate a roll away bed for the wee ones.

6. Four Seasons Resort at Manele Bay, Lanai

The location can hardly be beat, built on the cliffs above the pristine Manele Bay; this resort blends family-friendliness and luxury. Don’t expect too many screaming children or long lines here. Standard beach and pool activities include surfing lessons, paddle boarding and games. Along with these activities guests here are privy to the beautiful protected reefs that are full of marine life including dolphins and whales, and an absolute delight to snorkel in. If that isn’t enough to keep the kids interested why not sign them up for tennis lessons, horseback riding or even cooking lessons. And don’t worry if it rains one day, this resort offers hula dancing, lei making and ukulele lessons for kids. Leave them at the awesome Pilialoha Keiki Camp, the daily kids camp while you go enjoy the day at the spa.
