Family Travel

Planning and budgeting for a family adventure that everyone, from your 5-year-old to your teen, will enjoy can be difficult to plan. Here are the top ten reasons to choose Hawaii’s Most Hawaiian Hotel as the best place to vacation in Maui with the whole family.

1. Aloha Passport for kids

How does it work?

The first stop is to come and meet the Ho’okipa (hospitality) department where kids will receive their Aloha Passport. At each of the twelve destinations, children get to take part in activities that are both educational and fun. After experiencing the entertainment they will get their passport stamped and receive a free amenity for each destination.

Infants – 3yrs receive a passport card with their personalized Hawaiian name and a baby bucket full of goodies.

2.  Cultural activities

Kā'anapali Beach Hotel offers a variety of complimentary Hawaiian activities that are scheduled daily. We invite you to have fun and immerse yourself in our culture.

These activities are offered to all ages and are great for family-time learning, bonding and enjoyment.

3. Beach activities

Kā'anapali Beach hotel is just steps away from the world famous Kā'anapali Beach. You and your family will get to play in the warm ocean, swim, snorkel or take part in a number of ocean activities such as Stand Up Paddleboarding, Kayaking and Surf Lessons.

Watch young imaginations grow with beach fun such as searching for shells and making sand sculptures.
