Hotel Kids’ Program: Kapalua’s Ambassadors of the Environment kids’ curriculum, developed with preservationist Jean-Michel Cousteau, features snorkeling expeditions, underwater-photography classes, and workshops on turtles, whales, and ancient Hawaiian navigation techniques. The three-hour Ambassadors sessions are $59–$79 apiece, while a room for four starts at $299.

Setting: The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua is situated on the 23,000-acre Kapalua Resort, a former pineapple plantation, with quick access to both rainforest preserves and the reefs of Kapalua Bay’s pristine waters.

For the Whole Family: Whale Wonders, a whale-watching excursion the Ritz offers from December through April, gets you up close and personal with humpbacks. And North America’s longest zip-line system begins at the Kapalua Adventure Center.
