Why Waikoloa Village Was Made for a Family Vacation

Hawaii could be another word for heaven on Earth. And when there’s so much beauty to breathe in, you naturally want to share the experience with the ones you love. Who better to enjoy fun times with than your own little team of humans?

Hilton Waikoloa Village in the Big Island of Hawaii wasn’t just built to quench the most passionate of wanderlust. It’s also a big park offering wonder after wonder for families.


Endless Facilities

Our resort features an adults-only pool, the world-class Kohala Spa, two championship golf courses and some of the best shopping on the island for the grown-ups looking for respite. Walking around with the family is already enough to take in the splendid setting: our privileged Hawaiian estate boasts a four-acre lagoon bordered by a white-sand beach. Mahogany canal boats and air-conditioned trams transport you from one landscaped end of the resort to another in safety and luxury.

Our entertainment options are designed to make everyone – from the young and bouncy to the old and classy – truly fulfilled on a family holiday.


Play with Dolphins

Our 62-acre oceanfront resort is a veritable tropical playground for kids. We have three pools with waterfalls, a 175-foot waterslide and marine pools teeming with dolphins. Children can get up close and personal with these friendly sea mammals and let specialists guide them onto a journey into these remarkable animals’ story at Dolphin Quest.


Snorkel in the Lagoon

Want to give your kids a taste of the extraordinary? A family snorkelling trip does the trick. You won’t have to worry about open ocean dangers in our enclosed saltwater lagoon, fenced with serviced cabanas.

The whole family can rent hydro-bikes, kayaks, paddleboats, water bikes or simply snorkel its way through colorful reef fish and green sea turtles (‘honu’ if you want to start practising your Hawaiian!). Best of all, you can watch your kids having the time of their lives with their favorite lagoon toys while you sip a refreshing glass of tropical cocktail.

If you fancy exploring further afield, take a twenty-minute coastal walk to Anaeho'omalu Bay. This popular destination is also home to an ancient inland Hawaiian fishpond once used to raise mullet for the Ali'i (Hawaiian royalty), including King Kamehameha. Snorkel in these pristine waters and admire the natural and cultural heritage of this Pacific treasure. Make this mini-adventure come alive with some nuggets of history for the little ones!


Take a Family Fun Package

We’ll also throw in free breakfast for four if you opt for our Family Fun Package. With stays of three nights or longer, kindle that family spirit of belonging and communion and give your kids the vacation of a lifetime.
