It’s all about family at Napili Kai Beach Resort. The 10-acre
Maui beachfront property takes the family-friendly concept to the
max with a variety of services and activities specifically designed
for fun and flexibility.
At the heart is the property’s complimentary “Keiki Club” for
children during the summer season. Offered daily (except Sundays)
from mid-June through late August, as well as during Thanksgiving,
Christmas and Easter/spring break, the supervised program is open
to children 6 - 10.
From 10 a.m., the two- to three-hour fun fest features Hawaiian
games, nature walks, swimming sessions, family putting contests,
coconut painting and other arts and crafts.
Wednesday night is Movie Night for children, allowing parents to
enjoy a sunset stroll and a leisurely dinner on their own.
Available to property guests on a complimentary basis, the Keiki
Club requires 24-hour advance reservations.
“Parents like the focus on Hawaiian activities plus the
informality and fun of the program,” notes Diane J. Farnsworth,
director of guest operations.
Featuring spacious rooms, an array of recreation for all ages
and a friendly, relaxed ambiance, Napili Kai has long been a
popular choice for families. The low-rise resort presents 163 hotel
rooms, studios and one- and two-bedroom suites with private
“It’s a great family property for many reasons,” Farnsworth
remarks. She points out that with four pools and 10 acres of land,
Napili Kai has a low concentration of guests at any one location.

beach is perfect for swimming and snorkeling or sandcastle
At Napili Kai, children stay free up to the maximum occupancy in
a room, and cribs or rollways are complimentary. The resort’s
unique “Family Studio” units provide plenty of extra space all in
one room for families with young children.
Ninety-six percent of Napili Kai’s rooms feature ocean views,
and most include kitchens. For comfortable family dining, the
resort’s oceanfront Sea House Restaurant is right on the water’s
The resort also includes four swimming pools, two shuffleboard
courts, a boutique spa, fitness room, large ocean view whirlpool
spa and two putting greens with complimentary putters.
Guests enjoy complimentary use of beach gear, making it easy to
grab snorkels and masks to experience the beauty of the undersea
world right in front of the resort. Guests can snorkel, boogie
board, body surf, beach comb, explore tide pools, chase ghost crabs
or build sandcastles just steps from their room.
For larger gatherings, Napili Kai’s Family Reunion Package is
packed with benefits. “In the last twelve months, 70 families
stayed on the family reunion package where they received the room
of their choice, family t-shirts and a sitting with a professional
photographer,” reports Farnsworth. The plan is available year-round
excluding the Christmas/New Year’s holiday period.
She remarks that families also appreciate the flexibility. “They
can have as much together or alone time as they would like. They
can even have their rooms all in a row, or spread throughout the
property for privacy.”
Holding to its “no nickel-and-diming” philosophy, the sprawling
beachfront property provides complimentary parking, in-room
high-speed internet access, weekly activities and morning service
