5 Reasons Families Chose Kaanapali Resort [Win Maui Prizes at #KidsNTrips]

Those of you thinking of spring break, summer vacations and quick getaways in-between with the family should look at Kaanapali Resort in Maui. We’ve been multiple times over the years and love it. At the next #KidsNTrips family travel Twitter party, we’ll be giving away Maui-themed prizes including a 2-night stay at the beachfront Royal Lahaina Resort.

Kid-Friendly Beaches

We prefer Maui’s beaches, and Kaanapali’s is a stunner. It’s possible to spend hours floating around the warm ocean water while the kids boogie board, snorkel or play. Beach kiosks set guests up with their activities of choice.

Fantastic Hotels, Resorts, and Condos

In addition to kid-friendly beaches, families choose Kaanapali because they have accommodations to suit all budgets. And, many have “keiki” programs that cater to kids ages 12 and under.

During our last visit, we split time between two fabulous hotels. The first was Kaanapali Alii which has, fully-furnished residence-style accommodations. They even stocked our fridge in advance, and I loved having a washer/dryer to de-sand our clothes every once in a while. The beach out front is just lovely, and a bit quieter.

The uber-popular Hyatt Regency Maui though is a kid paradise. From the lobby penguins and tropical birds to the pool water slides, the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa is a kid paradise. We even participated in the evening Tour of the Stars because this is one of the best stargazing hotels in the world.

And, there are so many other fantastic accommodations to choose from including our grand prize, the Royal Lahaina Resort.

Delicious, Casual Dining

Hello, poke, Hula Pie, and Mai Tais. One does not run out of places to eat in Kaanapali. We particularly like Leilani’s and Hula Grill in Whaler’s Village though the sushi at Japengo inside Hyatt Regency Maui is fantastic.

And, let’s not forget the Drums of the Pacific luau for Kalua pork, poi, Polynesian rice, pineapple cake and other local favorites.

The performers take guests through through the islands of Polynesia through dance, music and even a little fire.

Activities On the Water

The list of Kaanapali activities both on (in) and off of the water is a long one. It’s possible to take surfing lessons, go whale watching, take a snorkeling tour, try stand-up paddle boarding, take a dinner cruise, and much more.

Fun on Land

Whaler’s Village awaits within walking distance of many Kaanapali Maui hotels. The Whaling Museum, shops, restaurants are here. And a little further afield aways the Sugar Cane Train, zip line and more. We also hope you can sneak in a few rounds of golf!
