Family Fun

In Hawaiian, the word for child or children is "keiki", pronounced kay-key. Our employees consider keiki VIP guests! You and your family are going to feel right at home here.

Fun Activities for the Whole Family
The hotel is right on the beach where you can swim, build sandcastles, skim board, and boogie board. Snorkeling or SCUBA (to SCUBA dive you have to be at least 12 years old), cliff diving, whale watching (December to May), parasailing (June-November), and all kinds of ocean activities are a must. If you prefer fresh water, we have a whale-shaped swimming pool just for you.

You will be sure to enjoy all the fun things to do here with your family. Our hotel takes special pride to include you with your parents and even your grandparents in learning Hawaiian culture with activities like hula lessons, ukulele lessons, and lei making. That’s why we were given a special award from Family Travel Forum as one of the best 10 hotels for families!

Free Kids Program
You can join our special program if you're 12 years or younger. It's called "Aloha Passport for Kids." It's fun and free! Your family will be able to play together as you visit areas of the hotel and learn Hawaiian arts and crafts. Aloha Passport for Kids is a family program rather than a drop-off kids camp.

You and your parents will begin by visiting our Guest Services center to sign up and get your Aloha Passport with your name in Hawaiian. If you are 6-12 years old there are 12 passport destinations, and kids 3-5 years old have an eight-destination passport.

The destinations include Hawaiian activities like hula lessons, or flower lei making. The hotel shops and restaurants are also passport locations. At each destination, your passport is stamped with a Hawaiian word and you'll receive a fun gift to play with while staying at the hotel and to keep as a special souvenir.

Even babies two years old and younger can receive a passport card with their Hawaiian name and a beach bucket filled with toys to play with on vacation.
