Visit Hawaii Island: Top 10 Ways Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka`upulehu Makes Families Feel Welcome

Staying at a hotel, especially a luxury hotel, always worries me a little because I always wonder how family-friendly a hotel truly is.

But once I arrived at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka`upulehu, my worries disappeared.

It is one of the most family-friendly resorts I've ever stayed at, and even the staff agreed that the resort is indeed very family-friendly.

Four Seasons Resort Hualalai knows how to ensure families have an amazing time (they know how to ensure guests traveling without kids have an amazing time as well - e.g. there are pools designated "quiet" or "adults only").

If you're traveling with kids, don't hesitate to make a reservation at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai (and upon making your reservation, your kids' names and ages are requested in order for the resort to tailor amenities for your kids).

Here are the top 10 ways the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai makes families feel welcome:

1. Keiki Pool - My kids declared the Keiki Pool at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai the "best pool ever" - and I couldn't agree more.  This kid-friendly pool has a sand-bottom, keiki lounge chairs, water spray features, and a treasure chest full of inflatables, buckets, and other water toys.  My kids spent HOURS in this pool!
2. `Ohana Suite - Designed specifically for families, the suite is located on the ground floor near the Keiki Pool (another `Ohana suite is located near the Beach Tree Pool).  The suite was more than enough room for our family, and the location made it convenient for my kids to run back to the room from the pool whenever a potty break was necessary.  In the suite were amenities fit for a kid (or a kid at heart) - bean bag chairs, Xbox, and even a telescope! 

3. Kids for All Seasons - For kids ages 5 to 12 (younger children can participate with an accompanying adult), this program allows parents to leave their children under supervised care, and kids will participate in activities such as swimming, nature hunts, crafting, and more.  
4. Hale Kula - This room offers video games, toys, and puzzles to keep keiki busy.  Outdoors is a pool table, mini-playground, water play station, and more!
5. Refreshing pool/beach treats - Fresh fruit, Otter Pops, Dibs, and other treats were offered to the kids (and adults!) while at the pool and beach.

6. Welcome snack - Kids are welcomed with a snack, and my boys were greeted to some popcorn, turtle chocolates, milk, and Waialua Natural Soda

7. King's Pond - Carved out of natural lava rock, this pool allows guests to swim with thousands of fishes, including a spotted eagle ray (the dark blob towards the top of the pond is the eagle ray!).  Kiddies can grab snorkel gear or a float board with a window to see all the fascinating marine life down below.  

8. Keiki dining: Four Seasons Resort Hualalai offers keiki menus, complimentary meals for kids 4 and under at Beach Tree and `ULU Ocean Grill (with purchase of adult entree), and colorful plastic utensils.  They also make foods that appeal to the kiddos, like the Mickey pancake (above) from the weekend breakfast buffet at `ULU Ocean Grill.

9. Welcome amenity - The kids were welcomed with fun water toys and stuffed honu.  They also had use of kid-sized bath robes and slippers!

10. Bath fun - Four Seasons Resort Hualalai really knows how to make bath time fun.  With bath toys, pictures drawn on the tub with bath markers, and bath tablets that make the water colorful, a bath in the deep soaking tub was almost as fun as splashing around in the Keiki Pool!  They also loved the outdoor shower (which you can see through the window).

These are just 10 ways that the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai makes families feel welcome.  There are so many more amenities, services, and activities that are offered to ensure that every `ohana has an amazing stay.
