The star of this iconic beachfront hideaway is a 26,000-square-foot natural lagoon, where guests can frolic alongside a family of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. Reef walks, lei-making, and hula dancing are among the countless activities catering to kids; parents can indulge in tropical treatments at the resort’s plumeria-scented spa, ranging from floral immersions to a traditional lomilomi massage.
