New York, NY

We are parents, too. We think traveling well and traveling with children shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. We have limited vacation time, and we’re not spending our few days of freedom in lousy hotels eating bad food. We know the world is full of wonderful resorts, cool urban escapes and far-flung lodges that can make our time with our kids count. We want it all, and we don’t think it should be so hard to find. So we’re going to share it with you.

Family-friendly Hawaii Hotels

Nicole Rubin

There are few places that say "vacation" like Hawaii, the South Pacific islands that evoke dreams of luaus, volcanos, and crashing waves. It's easy to find sunshine and outdoor activities such as hiking and surfing but not as simple to navigate the bustling hotel scene. Check out our family-friendly Hawaii hotel picks for your next Pacific adventure.


Maui is the second largest island with lots of resort options, volcanic peaks like Haleakala and the pools and waterfalls of Ohe’o Gulch. 

Montage Kapalua Bay

The Montage is perfect for families with 50 apartment-style accommodations. There are two-bedrooms condos that have a sofa bed in the living room, so there is plenty of space to spread out. With a spa and programs for kids and teens, everyone will be happy. 

The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua

This resort has everything you could need for a beach break—six restaurants, two golf courses, a Jean-Michael Cousteau kids' camp (for a fee) plus poolside cabanas. It's located the on the Golden Crescent beach surrounded by lava rocks, but the real scene is at the pool.

Four Seasons Maui

Located in the original luxury shopping and dining area of Wailea, the Four Seasons sits in the middle of it all. With three restaurants including Spago, the complimentary Kids for All Seasons club and wide sandy beach, there's really no reason to leave. The hotel is a high rise, however, so rooms on lower floors can have limited views.


Less developed, Kauai is known as the "garden isle" because most of its surface is covered in tropical rain forest. 


St. Regis Princeville

On Hanalei Bay, this luxe property has a spa, golf, and outstanding views of lush green mountains. For a fee, the kids can join the Young Voyager Club and discover indigenous plants, explore the wildlife and learn about Hawaiian culture. 

Grand Hyatt Kauai

Located on the south shore, this hotel is a good value and home base for exploring the island. The vibe is a tad corporate, but has a lovely beach and is right next to 18 holes of golf.
