Fantasy landscaping with splashing waterfalls, swim-through grottoes, a lagoonlike swimming pool, and a 150-foot waterslide "wow" guests of all ages at this bustling Kaanapali resort in the midst of the Kaanapali Beach action. Stroll through the lobby past museum-quality art, brilliant parrots, and South African penguins (as we said, this is not reality). The Hyatt's architecture is not necessarily Hawaiian, but it sure is photogenic, with cultural displays and tropical
landscaping. The grounds are the big deal as rooms are modest presentations of plantation style, with a little sitting area and lanai. Unwind at the oceanfront spa, or with cocktails and sushi at Japengo restaurant. The nightly Drums of the Pacific luau, and the must-see rooftop Astronomy Tour of the Stars using digital telescopes, are popular perks.
