Resort Overview

Aulani is relaxed yet regal with detailed touches of Disney magic.
The white sandy beach, tropical gardens, turquoise lagoons and sparkling waterfalls are just a few highlights of this balmy paradise. Inside the Resort, lava rock rises up through the floor of the grand lobby as dual pools of water cross the expanse: one gently flows with lilies while the other rushes wildly through. This Hawaiian philosophy of balance - bright and shadowy, brisk and slow, delicate and coarse - resonates deeply throughout the resort. It reflects not only the nature of the islands, but the spirit of its people. Add to this the exhilarating enchantment of Disney through its family entertainment and recreation, and you'll find a world of fun at your fingertips!

Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, is part of the Ko Olina Resort Community & Marina, which is located on the western shore of O'ahu about 17 miles from the Honolulu International Airport in Hawaii.

Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, was designed by Walt Disney Imagineers working hand in hand with Hawaiians to create a place celebrating island culture and history. Everything from the wondrous volcanic outcroppings to the breathtaking Resort architecture honors the fundamental connection between nature and humanity that the Hawaiians have cherished since the beginning of time. And because Hawaiians love to layer meaning in their words, so the name "Aulani" has more than one meaning. It is the place that speaks for the ancestors, yet it is also the place that speaks with deep messages.

Aulani is indeed a place where ancestral stories are told, built with the nobility, beauty and grandeur of Paradise.
