About Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa

On a white sand beach, between verdant green mountains and the Pacific Ocean, the 21-acre Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa encompasses blue lagoons, sparkling waterfalls, and tropical gardens. Situated on the quieter, leeward side of Oahu, where many of the island's nature preserves are located, this Ko Olina resort is nevertheless only a 24-mile (38.6-kilometer) drive from the sights and sounds of Honolulu. Ko Olina Golf Club is within a mile (1.6 kilometers).

Property Features.
Disney imagineers collaborated with local artisans to create Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, ensuring that the stories of Hawaii are woven into the landscape, recreation areas, excursions, and activities to create an all-encompassing experience. There is plenty of fun to be had for all ages. Waikolohe Valley, the huge pool complex, includes an 8,200-square-foot (761.8-square-meter) main pool, a snorkeling pool with tropical fish, a lazy river, waterslides, and a play area for children. Adults can sip tropical cocktails beside the more tranquil Wailana Pool, somewhat removed from the action. At Laniwai - A Disney Spa, nearly 150 treatments are available, as well as access to the 5,000-square-foot (462.5-square-meter) hydrology garden. Painted Sky, the only teen spa in Hawaii, is customized for guests ages 13 to 17. In addition to treatments designed for teenagers, a DIY mixology bar and perfume bar are on offer. While mom and dad relax at the spa, younger guests can check into Aunty's Beach House, which features a playground, video games, and counselor supervision for no fee. Shopping is also available for guests, including Hale Manu. The store features a variety of high-end goods and gifts. You can use complimentary wireless Internet access. A roundtrip airport shuttle is available (surcharge).

Each guestroom combines Hawaiian motifs and artifacts with hidden Disney Characters, woven into the patterns and fabrics. All offer flat-screen TVs with DVD players, free WiFi, and coffee/tea makers. Bathrooms include bathrobes and slippers.

Great but what no Stitch???!
Enjoyed my stay, personally I expected it to be “more Disney” and to be more characters around more often and being a Lilo & Stitch fan was quite disappointed that during my three days there was no sign of Stitch in a Disney resort in Hawaii but that’s my childish gripe maybe? Lovely place to stay however and a tick off my wish list

Aulani partial ocean view rooms, not worth it.
I paid for a partial ocean view and got 6 inches of partial ocean view waaaaay pass the parking lot. Don't book the partial ocean view, not worth the price, very disappointed. For the money that we paid, the room didn't even come with a microwave. The resort was really nice, just don't book the partial ocean view rooms.
