If you’ve ever wanted to stay in Hawaii, but weren’t sure of where exactly to stay, this list of the top timeshare resorts in Hawaii should help ease your mind. For years, timeshares have been the most popular vacation rentals because they combine the solitude and privacy of personal vacation apartments with the doting guest services and clean, sparkling pools you would expect at a quality resort. Now, here’s your chance to find out which ones are worth your while on each island of Hawaii.
4. Hilton Hawaiian Village - Lagoon Tower (Honolulu)
One of the best Hawaiian beach resorts can be found in the popular tourist city of Honolulu. Hilton Hawaiian Village features two timeshare complexes, the Kalia Tower and the Lagoon tower. Though the Kalia Tower offers the same amenities as the Lagoon tower, the Lagoon tower is located directly on the white sandy beaches of Waikiki, giving it that little extra oomph to make it on this list. Most suites in each tower offer guests one of a kind luxuries like private balconies, living areas with pullout sofa beds, full kitchens, and gorgeous views. On-site, visitors can find a plethora of things to do including the Mandara Spa, four swimming pools, a beauty salon and several restaurants and bars. Be sure to try and find a rental at this fabulous resort if you are thinking of traveling to Honolulu.
3. Marriott's Maui Ocean Club (Maui)
For years Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club was known as the place to be seen in Hawaii, and it’s no wonder with its great location. Located adjacent to world class golf courses and fancy restaurants, this resort can be found close to all of Maui’s main attractions. The resort also features a 3.5 acre “super pool” that stretches across the resort grounds complete with waterfalls, water slides, grottos, spas and a shipwreck for the kids. Each suite offers living and dining areas, master bedrooms with private bathrooms and king sized beds, and a kitchen which can be used many times due to the convenient on-site marketplace. This resort is also located on world famous Ka’anapali Beach.
2. Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas (Lahaina)
On the other side of Ka’anapali beach, in the town of Lahaina sits the world famous Westin Ka’anapali. The moment you step into your villa, you’ll realize why this resort is so well-known. Each unit comes equipped with a breakfast bar, full sized cooking and kitchen appliances, a master bedroom with a whirlpool tub, a balcony and quality furnishings far superior and more comfortable than those found at an average hotel. The resort itself offers guests many amenities including pools and spas along with never-ending entertainment, like the daily “Unwinding Hour” which celebrates the extraordinary sunsets of Hawaii with music and dining events. Combine all these amenities with the heavenly views of Ka’anapali Beach, and you’ll never want to leave. This resort has won many awards including the prestigious AAA Four Diamond award.
1. Disney's Aulani Resort and Spa
Finally, the number one spot goes to Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa, and deservedly so. This unique timeshare resort, located on the shores of Ko’olina, is the latest addition to the Disney family of resorts and timeshares and is a must stay for any traveler looking to experience the magic of Hawaii with the magic of Disney. The Imagineers really went above and beyond when creating this resort, adding two tubing rivers, an 8,200 square foot pool, whirlpool spas and “Rainbow Reef” – Oahu’s only private snorkeling lagoon – to its layout. The villas offer deluxe amenities such as private porches, dishwashers, full kitchens, and even laundry areas. The best part of Aulani is the “Excursion” collections which give families the chance to embark on guided adventures. These excursions can include anything from horseback riding and lei making to surf lessons and snorkeling.
