The Kids For All Seasons programme at Four Seasons Resort Lana'i at Manele Bay is called the Pilialoha Keiki Camp. Pilialoha means "close friendship and beloved companionship" in Hawaiian – something we would like to share with all guests.
The programme offers a full range of organised indoor and outdoor activities for children aged 5 to 12 years. Intended to encourage children to appreciate Lana'i's unique environment, the programme teaches children about Hawaii. They learn about petroglyphs, the spirit of aloha and how the Hawaiian islands were formed. They can even build their own erupting volcano, go hunting for lizards or watch a keiki (child) hula show.
Children are welcome in the day programme at any time – no reservations are required. Evening events are offered seasonally and reservations are highly recommended. Customised themed evening events are available for groups of eight or more upon request. All programmes offer children the opportunity to explore and appreciate Hawaii's natural beauty. Please contact the Concierge for schedule details.
