Aulani – A Disney Resort & Spa Oct 26

Towering lobby

Aulani  a Disney Resort & Spa is located about 30-45 minutes from Waikiki in the secluded Ko’Olina Resort Community. Located on a  beautiful beach Aulani is a perfect choice for families and honeymooners alike. From the moment you step into the towering atrium lobby you know you have arrived at a special place. The designers of Aulani put a great deal of attention into bringing Hawaiian culture and sense of place in many aspects of design. Restaurant names such as Makahiki (annual Hawaiian Harvest festival), AMA’AMA(local mullet fish) and Lava Shack continue the theme.

Aulani -

Guest staying at Aulani have many complimentary amenities available to them such as Aunty’s Beach House, Luana Lounge for early check in/check out, in room amenities such as robes,mini fridge,Blue-Ray DVD player, daily turndown service, and a limited number of sand wheelchairs are available on a first come first serve basis for use on the beach area, this should give you an idea of what is available. Of course what would a Disney resort be without entertainment and that certainly applies to Aulani / Starlit Hui-an evening gathering of music,dance and fun blending traditional Hawaiian and modern entertainment, Po La’ila’i-Sunset Gathering Ceremony, ‘Ohana (family) movie nights,Mo’olelo Fireside story telling and Character Meet & Greets.

Menehune Bridge

So many recreational activities for all ages in Waikolohe Valley including the Menehune Bridge a favorite for the children where they learn about the legendary “little people” who are responsible for mysterious happenings around the islands, as they climb and splash and play on the play structure. Guest can also climb on a tube and glide through the Waikolohe Stream, snorkel in Rainbow Reef the only private snorkel lagoon on O’ahu, or enjoy the 8200 square feet of the Waikolohe Pool. Located between the two towers of Aulani  the Waikolohe Valley offers hours of fun and memories for a lifetime. It is so hard to describe Aulani in a brief blog post, but I do hope you will  be able to visit soon with your family.
