With more than 40 acres of lagoons, the Hyatt in Ka’anapali has thoughtfully created a tropical paradise for gorgeous birds, which are cared for by a full-time Hyatt wildlife department. The resort offers free wildlife tours on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. The kids will delight in listening to R2D2, an African Gray Parrot, mimic the sounds he loves best: beeping pagers and two-way radios. Or, everyone can play the game of “call and response” with Spike the African Crane. The kids will be entranced by the friendly black and white swans, penguins (turns out only 2 of the 17 species of penguin live in the Antarctic), parrots, koi fish and more. Parents might also spend hours checking out the Hyatt’s museum-quality art collection. If your kids could use the sugar, the Weeping Banyan Espresso Bar boasts awesome pastries for breakfast. After you meet the birds, head to the Ka’anapali beach — one of the best on the island. Take your camera; you’ll sometimes catch humpback whales showing off in the wild.
