While summer is just heating up, like many families you are probably already thinking about fall.
The October fall break and November Thanksgiving holiday are ideal times to book a family trip. But not all warm-weather destinations are good this time of year.
The Caribbean and Central America are not ideal as they are still in their rainy seasons during the months of October and November. There is really only one sure-fire beach destination for American travelers to consider; Hawaii!
If you’re looking for an easy, relaxing trip, be sure to consider Maui. Here are our picks for the best family resorts on Maui.
Like all Four Seasons properties, this is a solid option for families and one of the best family resorts on Maui. The Four Seasons Maui at Wailea resort has been nominated in the past for “Best Children’s Program” among top luxury travel agents in our network. Located on 15 ocean front acres, overlooking Wailea Beach, you have some of the island’s best beach swimming and snorkeling at your doorstep.
What sets this resort apart from other luxury properties in the area is the wide range of complimentary services, activities and facilities. Learn more about the family amenities and educational programming here. And Videre Travel is a preferred partner with Four Seasons, so when booking through us you’ll enjoy some special, exclusive perks, including;
- Daily Continental Breakfast
- One category upgrade on arrival, subject to availability at check-in.
- $100 USD Food & beverage credit to be utilized during stay
We also love the new Andaz Maui, located on Wailea beach as well. The Andaz brand is fun and youthful. Enjoy four pools, several dining options and of course the stunning Wailea beach.
Then on the other side of the island, the Ritz-Carlton is a great option for families looking to get away this fall. Kapalua, loosely translated to “arms embracing the sea,” is one of Maui’s premier resort areas located at the foot of the verdant Kahalawai mountains. Kapalua’s famed shoreline is lined with five bays and three white-sand beaches.
And this resort offers much more than just beaches and pools. Fill your days with tennis, basketball, swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, sailing, kayaking, outrigger canoeing, stand-up paddling. Whale watching, snorkeling, hiking and more are offered daily via the Ambassadors of the Environment program.
The Westin Maui Resort and Spa, located right on Ka’anapali Beach, also a top recommendation for families in Hawaii largely because of the fabulous pool area.
The 87,000 square-foot aquatic playground at the Westin Maui features five pools, a Jacuzzi, two water slides, a swim-through grotto and hidden whirlpool. All of the swimming pools are interconnected with each other so you can literally swim from one pool to the other.
