I am in the planning stages of a trip with another couple for next year. The last time we visited we stayed at the Four Seasons Hualalai north of Kailua Kona, but the couple we're going with this time doesn't have the financial means to stay there. I'm looking for an adults only resort or at least one with an adults only area. Anybody have any ideas?

The Hilton Waikoloa has an "adult" pool. Besides the resort you mention, that is the only resort I know of that has something exclusively for adults(I've lived here 17 years.)

You should be able to find quite a few properties on Maui for sure that have adult-only pools. I know for sure the Sheraton does, and so does Grand Wailea. I would assume the Westin does as well.

You might want to look for a condo, rather than a resort. Resorts tend to cater to families and have more elaborate pools, and are usually smaller in area. I also use the pool at my friends condo complex here on Kauai and there are NEVER kids there- but the pool at my hotel is always overflowing with them.

I live on Maui and walk the Kaanapali beachwalk almost every day. I agree with the posters above about the condos (or villas), although some of those also cater to family groups. If your schedule is flexible, you can also avoid large numbers of children/teens by not coming during key vacation weeks: Christmas/New Year's, Easter, spring break, and anytime in June/July/August.

The lowest occupation months on Maui are after spring break/Easter through May and all of September. (We noticed hardly any children (other than occasional infants and toddlers) earlier this month, but as schools are closing, more are arriving.

The Fairmont Kea Lani in Wailea also has an all-adult pool (in addition to those listed above). Price does not seem to be much of a determining factor in discouraging family travel; I was at the Four Seasons Manele Bay on Lana`i yesterday, and I was taken aback by the number of children there.

I don't mean to sound anti-family or anti-child. I am trying to answer the post to the best of my knowledge. We tend to note the number of children because we are on the 2-mile beachwalk, and sometimes it's all adults, and sometimes we see lots of strollers and/or family groups on the walk or on the lawns at the adjacent resorts. The walk goes right by the Sheraton, Marriott, and Hyatt children's pools, so it is clear when they are rocking v. when they are quiet.

I'm not looking for a place with an adults only pool, I'm looking for a place that doesn't cater to children, period. FYI, the Four Seasons Hualalai has an adults only section of the resort, not just a pool.

I think I may have found what I'm looking for in the Kona Village Resort on The Big Island. They do not offer any children's programs or daycare during the month of May and cater all of their activities for adults. They call it their Month of Romance. Thanks for the input.

Thanks, I forgot about the adults-only area. I've stayed at Hualalai, though, and I've noted spotty compliance and enforcement of many of their "rules," especially the quiet/ "no-cell phone pool," where everybody is on their phones.

Good luck with Kona Village. May, especially the early part, really is quiet on all the islands.

Do you have to be in a resort? If not, why not rent a 2br 2bath vacation rental, maybe in Waikaloa Village? There are a lot of them - very new and very nice and spacious and with the economy still bad, nice pricing, and much cheaper than a resort.
