Set on the beautifully idyllic island of Kawawii, you take on the role of a traveler with only one goal: To have as much fun as possible before your vacation ends! The game is split up into two main parts. The first, the Resorts, are four enormous {{Hub World}}s that you can explore, either on foot or with specialized "Gear" like ATVs, kayaks, and skateboards. These are full of places to explore, hidden treasures, mini-missions, [=NPCs=], secret messages, photo ops, and even pet dogs. The second part is the Activities within the resort. These are the actual mini-games, and can cover everything from sports like volleyball and minigolf to weirder things like glass-harp-playing and pie-throwing. Finally, there's an unlockable Villa that you can [[AnInteriorDesignerIsYou design and decorate to your liking.]]

* FollowTheLeader: The game's theme and stamp system are both very reminescent of ''VideoGame/WiiSportsResort.''
** "Free Dive" in the scuba activity is basically just a mini ''VideoGame/EndlessOcean.''

* ShownTheirWork: Photographed animals would be associated with text describing them (coconut crabs growing out of the need for a shell, toucan bills being light for their size and used for shedding heat, three-banded armadillos being the only species to roll up into a ball, reindeer having antlers in both sexes, polar bear fur being colorless rather than white, bighorn sheep spending summers at higher elevations and winters at lower ones, peacocks shedding their trains once a year, etc.). The animals themselves are also accurately designed.

* WideOpenSandbox: Aside from the ''very first minigame,'' which the game forces you to play, you have total freedom to pretty much go anywhere and do anything from the very beginning. The game recommends new games for you to try, but you can tackle them in any order. And the overworlds are full of things to explore and do, so you can spend hours running around without ever touching the minigames. Even if you haven't played them in-game yet, several of the minigames are fully unlocked from the title screen at the beginning.
