LIHUE, HAWAII--(Marketwire - May 9, 2012) - Seeing and experiencing Hawaii through a child's eye is as heartwarming as the rays of the Hawaiian sunshine. And as more and more multi-generational families travel together, they seek a destination that can offer a resort with a variety of guest services and activities. Beginning June 23, Kauai Marriott Resort will have available its summer program designed for youngsters ages 5-12 years old at Kalapaki Kids Club. The cost is $70 per child who is a guest of this family hotel in Hawaii.
Kids will enjoy the Kalapaki Kids program offerings that include a few Hawaiian cultural offerings from Saturday to Wednesday:
"Silly" Saturday - Get ready, get set, & get wet! A balloon toss is always fun with a friend or two. Let's not forget about our obstacle race right on the beach. You will also get to decorate your own visor to wear under the warm Hawaiian sun.
Aloha Sunday - Learn a hula to show off to your friends back home. You will also learn a bit about our volcanoes here in Hawaii and how our islands were made long ago. Hawaiian story telling is also planned especially for you.
Hawaiiana Monday - We're going on a scavenger hunt! You will get to see some of the special animals and plants that have made our garden their home. Get a cool Hawaiian petroglyph picture painted on your arm or leg and string fresh flower lei for you to give or wear.
Keiki Tuesday - Fun in the sun with sand sculpting. You will also find out what your name is in Hawaiian and decorate a luggage tag for your journey back home. We will also learn about our marine animals here in Hawaii.
Makahiki Wednesday - Go "coconuts," with coconut bowling. You'll also learn a thing or two about some of the games (old and new) that the children of Hawaii have fun playing every day.
At Kauai Marriott Resort on Kalapaki Beach, families of all ages can enjoy the results of a recently completed $50 million makeover that transformed all areas of the luxury hotel in Kauai. Along with the refreshed guestrooms, the beachfront resort has a new children's swimming pool with a slide and water features, which complements the 26,000-square-foot signature swimming pool.
Kauai Marriott Resort is home to a vibrant collection of more than 1,500 red, orange, yellow, and white koi fish, teeming in anticipation and waiting to be hand-fed each morning by resort guests in the Gardens of Kalapaki. From their serene and elegant nature, to the frisky, unforgettable splashing and churning of the pond during feeding time, koi fish feeding is offered daily.
The Kauai beach hotel's Kalapaki Kids Club focuses on the uniqueness of Kauai and is open to children from five to 12 years old. The program is designed to be flexible, allowing children to participate in an activity they find of particular interest or to sign up for an entire day of adventures. Kids learn hula dancing, songs, how to play the ukulele, and various Hawaiian crafts. Youngsters, including teens can enjoy time in the new recreation room. There is a great Kids Evening Camp on Mondays and Tuesdays from 5:00p.m. 10:00p.m. Activities include dinner, movie, arts and craft. The price is $50 per child.
