Heading to Hawaii on vacation with your baby? Rent a cabana. 

My family recently spent 10 nights at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa in Hawaii.  Traveling with an infant can be challenging. However, if you make a few key decisions, traveling can be a breeze. One of those decisions was renting a cabana at the resort; I’d say that this is a must for traveling with a family as it provides many key benefits.

Meeting place

From grabbing food, swimming, to heading out on a walk, the cabana served as a central meeting place for the day.

This allowed us to be flexible and do different activities while always having a spot to return to. 


Shielding my son from the sun is a priority for me. This was a resounding reason to reserve the Cabana.

It provided shade from the sun with different blinds to put down depending on where the sun was in the sky.


The cabana provided a great spot for my son to play. We set-up a play area on a blanket with his toys, giving him plenty of room to stretch out.

A place to call home

Every morning, we brought down all the items we thought we may need from our room. With the central place to put our things, we were “set-up” for the day, and had everything we needed.

Insider cabana tips for Sheraton Maui at Black Rock

At the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa, you can reserve the specific cabana you want as well as reserve it for your whole stay. There are four cabanas. We rented all of them while we were there and felt they all had aspects that I liked. I’d recommend checking them out upon your arrival to see which cabana works for you.

Cabanas 1 & 2 have close access to the beach and right on the ledge of the pool.  While Cabanas 3 & 4 are by the waiting pool for kids but set back a little.  For a little crawler, I’d recommend Cabana 3 & 4, as you won’t have to worry about them falling into the water. I really enjoyed how the cabanas were quieter than sitting in a lounge chair.

FreshCruiser Tip: If you’re traveling during a busy time of year, call ahead and have the concierge reserve the cabana for you in advance.
