As you might expect from the first-ever spa designed by the creative minds at Walt Disney Imagineering, Laniwai Spa is a fully immersive experience that surrounds you with the beauty and serenity of the islands.

Offering a menu of nearly 150 spa therapies and body treatments; from energizing massages to rejuvenating skin treatments to invigorating hydrotherapy in a lush outdoor garden - including body scrubs, and deep tissue, hot stone, Swedish, and sport massages. This spectacular spa caters to individuals, couples and families, with separate spaces for each.

At Laniwai Spa, you’ll also find a steam room, a full-service salon, and state-of-the-art fitness center. And for teens, the adjacent Painted Sky, the only teen spa in Hawai‘i, provides a place to gather and enjoy activities - and even spa treatments - designed especially for them.

Aulani is majorly overrated and underperformed
Linens were not clean had to get housekeeping to come up and change sheets and pillow

When you’re here, you’re here....
Gotta say, for the price we paid to stay here, I was underwhelmed. It’s essentially a glorified water park with little to do beyond the spotty extras you can pay for to enhance your experience. The beach area was kind of insulting to’s designed to make you feel like you’re in a beach bubble with no waves. It’s hard to justify paying $100 per person to go on a hike or take an hour long canoe ride. Beyond the two main restaurants on the premises, there’s little else and it felt like they intentionally created a sense of exclusivity with reservations, when it was apparent that there was plenty of space. The character breakfast was fun and delivered that classic Disney experience, but Ama Ama, their upscale restaurant was dissappointing. We stayed for two nights. I could not imagine staying any longer than that. The kids had fun, but I’m not sure if that would have continued had we stayed longer.

Third time here, but not sure if we’ll be back.
Third time there however it’s not a relaxing resort if relaxation if what you are looking for. There are ppl everywhere, it’s extremely busy with lots to do. I was over all the queuing up after the 2nd day. And the breakfast at AMA AMA was a huge disappointmen.

Very Good8.0
It is a nice resort great for kids. Limited food choice. My biggest disappointment was not getting the bed type requested and the inflexibility to work with to change room. Would have to be room less for 5 hour. The staff to schedule actives it was like pulling teeth to get information on what activity to go to. Found more information out from other guest.
