High Seasons or Low Season?

We arrive August 27th thru September 6th, is this high or low season? We are hoping for a relaxing (not getting up at 7am to reserve a chair at the pool) and quiet vacation...Any comments on upscale resorts with great "Adults only" pools? Thanks for your input.

That's Labor Day week...traditionally the end of the summer high season but anymore things kind of taper off rather than fall off as they did 10-15 years ago

High season. Last ditch attempt at a summer vacation for many families (of all sizes).

Consider the Hyatt on Ka'anapali. Their pool is huge, and the kids have a separate pool. I don't know that I would call it "adults only." You may need to check with them.

We used to go in September and it would be pretty quiet, but it's actually become a pretty popular month. We've now pushed our trips into mid-October to miss the crowds. The Four Seasons has a beautiful adults-only pool (the Serenity Pool), but it's popular and fills up pretty early. They will put you on a wait-list and call your cell when chairs open up. Their regular pools (with complimentary cabanas) are really nice too. I've never been there when there has been a ton of kids, but again, we go after school starts. They do have a separate kids pool.

You are coming during one of the most popular weeks in Hawaii. Everyone getting that last minute beach vacation in!! The Marriott in Wailea has a new adults only infinity pool.

It is a fairly quiet week compared to the rest of the summer.

Wailea Beach Villas has a very exclusive adult pool. You can always get a great seat at the pool or a complimentary private cabana unlike at the neighboring resorts. I recommend M311 if you are a couple or smaller family (www.waileabeachvillasresort.com)
