THE CULTURE-SEEKER
Hawaiian culture encompasses the guest experience through a variety of cultural activities and ocean recreation. Hale Ho‘okipa, the Hawaiian Cultural Center in the hotel lobby is home to alaka‘i (guides) who love to “talk story” and share their knowledge of Hawaiian traditions, history and culture. Plus, a variety of Hawaiian activities are offered daily. (See highlights below.)  
  

THE OUTDOOR REC ENTHUSIAST
Adventure-seeking guests should visit the Ocean Activities Center, Hale Huaka’i, to kick off their aquatic pursuits with a Hawaiian twist. Challenge body and mind by taking a paddling tour on the hotel’s wa‘a (outrigger canoe). Canoes have been an integral part of the Hawaiian way of life for generations and clients can share in the tradition. Glide along the panoramic shoreline of Kā‘anapali Beach to enjoy an expansive view from the water while your guide “talks story” about Polynesian migration, local history and gives lessons on sustainable living.

There are many reasons families love Kā‘anapali Beach Hotel but value-seeking parents simply can’t ignore that kids under 17 stay for free and those under five dine free with each paying adult. Book adjoining rooms, reserve a complimentary crib, take advantage of for-hire babysitters, play in the whale-shaped pool or on the wide sandy beach, and of course, join in on all the free activities. Ask about the "Aloha Passport for Kids" program at check-in. Coin-operated laundry is a bonus.
