Our Favourite Family Vacation Destination-Ko Olina Oahu

Ever since We first visited O’ahu we fell in love with Ko Olina and have since gone back every year! When my mother in law first discovered The Ko Olina Beach Villas Resort, my then fiancé and I were in our 20’s without children and ever since, we’ve been back. We’ve just recently finished a trip with our now two and four year old to give you an idea of how long we’ve been loving this special piece of heaven. It was perfect for us before kids and even more perfect for us now.

30 minutes from the airport situated on a gorgeous lagoon on the west side of Oahu, is Ko Olina. The resort area is a gorgeous place that is home to the Four Seasons, Disney’s Aulani, the Marriott, and the Beach Villas, where we stayed. The Beach Villas Resort currently has one whole lagoon to itself, which is amazing because you never have to fight for a spot on the beach! What’s also great is that you’re able to visit another popular destination called the North Shore in under an hour as well as Waikiki, and other popular destinations like Pearl Harbour.

The Lagoon

The beach villas are perfect for families. They come in two or three bedroom suites with two full bathrooms, a high-end kitchen, and a patio big enough to fit the entire family! The kitchen is fully stocked with all the pots, pans, and utensils you would need. Laundry machines are also provided in each villa. Both bathrooms and bedrooms are very spacious, and the sofa bed provides the extra space to sleep 6 or 8 if needed. Beach chairs, boogie boards, floats, and snorkeling equipment was also provided. You don’t have to buy a thing! You can also email ahead of time if you’re travelling with a baby and they’ll provide a pack n play and a high hair.

The beaches are as beautiful as it gets. The water is crystal clear just like you see in travel magazines or photos. And the best part is that they are quiet and not packed with people. You can snorkel in the lagoons and because they are man made they are protected from sharks and giant waves and currents.

The pools on the property are stunning and once again you don’t have to fight to get a seat by the pool. There’s a lap pool as well as several mini pools amongst beautiful landscaping and a little sandy pool for kids that they can stand and play in.

The Kid Pool

The property also has a fully equipped gym, a fully stocked tiki bar and tons of poi fish ponds surrounding the gardens.
