Fairmont Kea Lani
This is a Moorish-inspired hideaway (with domes, dramatic archways, and whitewashed walls) set on 22 tropical acres. Kids (and you) will love a 140-foot water slide, you can string orchids into leis, and play a round of golf with a view of mountains and ocean. The 413 suites and 37 villas are on a calm cove which is super safe for kids.
Some of the state’s best natural scenery is on Maui, from the lush landscape at Haleakala National Park to the golden coastline at Kaanapali. Lahaina is a beautiful seaside resort and at certain times of the year, it’s possible to watch humpback whales migrating.
