Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, Ko Olina, Hawai‘i

The property, located on the island's western side in the picturesque Ko Olina Resort & Marina, Honolulu's premier resort destination, is home to Disney's first mixed-use family resort outside of its theme park developments. The expansive resort, has more than 800 units, including hotel rooms and Disney Vacation Club villas.*

Guests will be able to enjoy a magical vacation including immersive, one-of-a-kind experiences, breathtaking ocean views, gourmet dining and so much more that families can do together or adults and children can experience on their own.

There's an expansive pool and water play area, an 18,000 square-foot spa, a wedding lawn, an 8,000 square-foot convention center, a children’s club and spectacular dining at two restaurants -- one of which provides a stunning view of the ocean.

Activities and amenities aim to engage every member of the family. At the resort’s signature water way, for example, family friendly tubes and body slides will weave through volcanic rockwork and engage an iconic caldera volcano, while a nearby wading pool gives parents with toddlers a welcoming alternative to the sprawling zero-entry fun pool. In addition, more adventurous family members will find vibrant fish species in a saltwater snorkel lagoon.

Beyond activities for the whole family, the resort has been designed to respect and connect with the local culture of the Hawaiian islands. The Walt Disney Imagineering team has been researching Hawai‘i and working with local architects and cultural experts as part of the resort’s creative design process. The resulting design is a village celebrating the Hawaiian customs and traditions that lead to a life filled with joy and in harmony with the natural world. To further incorporate Hawaiian traditions, cultural programming in the areas of environmental education, music, dance, history, and arts and crafts; a story-driven, technology-enabled adventure game; and other surprises come together to create a Hawaiian destination that’s uniquely Disney.

Additionally, Hawai‘i’s aloha spirit has influenced the many intricate details for which Disney resorts are famous, with stories woven into the architecture, interiors, art, graphics and three planned signature gardens all brought to life through carefully selected colors, patterns, materials and forms. Wood, thatch, lava stone and coral are among the materials represented in the resort’s two 15-story guestroom towers, each oriented perpendicular to the ocean to maximize ocean views from the strategically angled guest rooms. Façade murals add to the distinctive look of each tower and begin to portray some of the stories and legends of the islands.

At the heart of the resort, an open-air lobby building -- dubbed Hale Aloha -- draws its design inspiration from a traditional Hawaiian canoe house, visually connecting families to the sea and beyond. Window designs, wall graphics and other details will welcome families with tales of adventure, myth, legend and more, while twin streams flow through the building before uniting as a single cascade into the center garden below.
