Hawaii Resorts

Hawaii resorts along Waikiki Beach

Selecting the right accommodation is a substantial part of creating the perfect Hawaii vacation. Fortunately, the hotels and resorts in the Aloha State are as diverse as the tourist demographic, so whether you are bringing the kids and hoping to find fun activities and programs for them to enjoy, or if you are on a honeymoon looking to be pampered at an all-inclusive resort, Hawaii is sure to have a perfect place for you.

We’ve outlined a list by island to help you ascertain which Hawaii resort might best suit the needs of you and your family.  Before you book your flights, brush up on your review of the islands with our Hawaii Travel Tips page to make sure you are prepared for the trip of a lifetime!

Oahu:  Hawaii’s largest city of Honolulu and the surrounding areas have more resorts than visitors can conceive.  From the JW Marriott Ihilani Ko Olina Resort and Spa  has five restaurants, a Japanese garden, a golf course, swimming lagoons and daily teen activities and kids programs.   For famous historical Waikiki resorts, The Royal Hawaiian was a celebrity favorite and remains an icon and the Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort and Spa is classically referred to as “the First Lady of Waikiki.”  Even on the North Shore of Oahu, resorts such as Turtle Bay add elegance and style to the popular surf beaches in the north.  Peruse our Oahu Resorts and Hotels page to see what programs and opportunities Oahu will provide you.

Maui:  One of the most beautiful resorts in Maui is the Makena Beach & Golf Resort, which is set on picturesque Maluaka Beach. The vibe is welcoming yet serene, as arriving guests are greeted with leis and the hotel is built around a green mediation garden. Golfers will love golfing on the stunning course which recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation. The Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa is an award-winning resort that enjoys the most pristine oceanfront views. The resort is geared towards families, having children’s areas with pools and slides, but also has peaceful lounges for adults. The Maui Resorts and Hotels list can help you narrow down your choices.

Big Island:  The Royal Kona Resort combines luxury with nature, sporting tranquil ocean view rooms and the largest open air, ocean-front bar that looks over the beautiful Kailua Bay.  With live music, weekly luaus hosted here and a shallow children’s pool, this resort is one that the whole family can enjoy.  For travelers who want to experience the luxury of fine dining, Polynesian entertainment, dancing, luaus and local seafood, the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa has it all. With adventures around every corner, there are plenty of options on the Big Island Resorts and Hotels page to augment the vacation of your dreams.

Kauai:   Because Kauai is the island with no skyscrapers (each building must be no taller than a palm tree), the resorts have a less prominent appearance, without diminishing the standard of excellence.  The elite St. Regis Princeville is one of the most sought after resorts, due to its elegance and ideal location facing the stunning Hanalei Bay.  With award-winning golf courses, tennis courts, horse stables, spas and a blissful poolside restaurant and ocean front bar, the St. Regis brings refinery to a new level.  A great family-centered resort on Kauai is the Sheraton Kauai Resort which offers events like weekly movie nights, babysitting provision, and 2 children’s swimming pools. Another feature includes free dining at the Shells Restaurant for kids 12 years old and younger.  Explore our list of popular Kauai Resorts and Hotels page and start planning your vacation today.

Molokai:  Better suited for nature-loving families who do not demand the all the finest things in life, Molokai does not have any resorts on the island.  But if you are looking to escape city life and find simplicity, and you want to spend your vacation fishing, hunting and hiking in some of Hawaii’s most heavenly landscapes, then Molokai might be just the place for you and your family.  Find out more about what awaits you in Molokai.
