Maui is a popular island, for families: many stay at condo's, but Maui's also big with resort-goers. Maui resorts offer a range of prices, but the island is especially known for high-end properties: for example, Maui was voted "Best Island in the World" by readers of Condé Nast Traveler, and "World’s Best Islands" by readers of Travel + Leisure -- two magazines beloved by high-end travelers.
See Fun Places to Go on Maui. Or read on, for some top Maui resorts for families, including one that's value-priced.
Hawaii's "most Hawaiian hotel" has a great location on 3-mile Kaanapali beach, just steps to snorkeling at Black Rock. A seaside walkway leads to shops and other resorts. The Kaanapali has unique programs that support Hawaiian culture. Free activities include lei-making, hula classes, and ukulele classes. Kids receive an "Aloha Passport" that gets stamped with every activity they try. The Kaanapali has hula shows nightly, and an annual 3-day hula festival for kids 5 to 17. This Maui resort has a good price point, too.
Four Seasons resorts are known for luxury and above all for service, and there are guests for whom only the Four Seasons (or a similar brand) will do. Maui's Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea -- the first Hawaii resort to win the AAA Five Diamond Award and Mobil Five-Star Award -- is located on a beautiful beach at Wailea. The Four Seasons Maui has a kids' club and several complimentary services and nice touches for families (such as child-sized bathrobes, and milk and cookies on arrival.)
Fans of the Four Seasons brand have another Maui resort to choose from. This property offers the Four Seasons' set of children's amenities but at time of writing does not have a kids club.
