Family time takes on new meaning when you’re spending the days together in a tropical paradise. From walks on the beach to zip line adventures, there are plenty of exciting activities planned for your Kauai vacation. But some days you just want to kick back and stay on site, close to your private villa. Lucky for you, there are so many options at Koloa Landing Resort that you don’t even need to leave the grounds to make memories that last a lifetime.
Read on to explore on what to do with your kids and babies at Koloa Landing Resort to enjoy that quality time.
On-Site Adventures That Make a Splash
Whether you’ve got an aspiring diver or a brand-new water baby, there are plenty of ways for kids of all ages to make a splash at Koloa Landing Resort. The resort’s main pool features four acres of stunning turquoise water, gorgeous waterfalls and a swim-through grotto. While your active preteen zips down the lava-rock waterslide and checks out the infinity edge at the main pool with your spouse, you can head to the shallow southwest end of the pool to wade along the sandy beach pool entrance with your infant or hit the splash pad where your preschooler can frolic among jets of water that spray up from the ground.
For a change of pace, get the whole family together for a swim in the family lagoon pool, where your grade-schooler can teach younger siblings the basic strokes so “one day you, too, can brave the deep end!”
Chilling in a Cabana
When your little ones are ready for a break from all that swimming, a poolside cabana is just the place to relax and regroup. Rent a cabana for the day where you and the toddler can snack on plates of fresh tropical fruit and parmesan truffle fries while you cheer on the big kids as they make “just one more trip” down the waterslide — for the 24th time.
If it’s the weekend, send the kids over to the south side of the main pool to grab a sweet, refreshing shaved ice while you and your spouse stay in the cabana sipping on tropical cocktails.
Exploring Local Wildlife
Your kids heard from another family they met at the pool that there’s a place nearby where you can see sea turtles and swim right next to real fish, so snorkeling is now on your agenda for tomorrow. The on-site Activity Hut is your first stop for underwater family adventures, so head there first thing in the morning to get everything you need for snorkeling in the bay that lies adjacent to the resort.
A toddler who isn’t quite ready for underwater activities might enjoy a quiet stroll along the resort’s curving pathways, where you can point out colorful butterflies. And nothing lulls your baby into an afternoon nap like the sounds of tropical bird calls heard from the balcony of your private villa.
Snapping Post-Worthy Pics
It’s been barely a day since you arrived in Kauai and everyone from your mom to your middle schooler’s bestie have been asking for pics and updates. Bring the baby out to the expansive resort grounds to capture some amazing shots of your little one surrounded by tropical blossoms so Grandma can admire both her favorite tiny tot and the gorgeous scenery. Then, get a few family selfies of the whole gang in front of one of the resort pool waterfalls.
Your older kids want action shots, so snap a few waterslide pics for them to post on social media with tags emphasizing how they’re having the #bestvacationever and #morefunthanschool.
Dining Under the Stars
At Koloa Landing Resort, mealtime can be just as much of an adventure as any other time. Head down to the sunset poolside barbecue to prepare the fish you caught earlier in the day during a fishing excursion arranged by the resort concierge. The kids can show off their grilling skills while comparing adventures with new friends they meet at the nightly event.
Once everyone has polished off their fresh grilled burgers and fish, move over to the main lawn where you can all roast marshmallows and make ooey-gooey s’mores under a brilliantly starry sky.
Winding Down After Hours
You’ve got a big day planned for tomorrow, but your kids are still so excited it’s hard to wind everyone down. Put the baby to bed in a crib you’ve requested for your room and pull up a movie on the HD widescreen TV for the older kids to watch as they curl up on your villa’s comfy couches and relax before bed. You can even whip up a quick late-night snack during the movie since your villa comes equipped with a full gourmet kitchen and you remembered to have the fridge and pantry stocked with all your kids’ favorite foods before you arrived.
