Walt Disney Imagineers have worked hand-in-hand with local artisans and cultural experts to create Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. Inspired by the natural wonders and rich traditions of Hawai‘i, Aulani Resort is the ultimate family getaway—celebrating the beauty, history and welcoming spirit of the island. The resort opened in August 2011 and a major expansion project was completed in fall 2013, offering families even more to enjoy!
“Aulani” means “messenger of a chief.” Here, you’ll discover the legends of the Hawaiian islands and the resort is perfectly positioned on the beautiful beaches of Ko Olina on the leeward coast of O‘ahu. The Resort sits on 21 oceanfront acres, nestled between verdant mountains and serene ocean waters. Here, you’ll be removed from the crowds of Waikiki, yet close enough to enjoy the wonders of the island. As a part of the Ko Olina Resort Community & Marina, Aulani presents spectacular beaches, serene lagoons, a championship golf course, expansive shopping & dining venues, and water sports like snorkeling & sports fishing.
Imaginatively designed to embrace time-honored traditions, Aulani Resort offers an array of Hawaiian-inspired experiences such as contemporary Hawaiian art & design throughout the resort; world-class entertainment, including fireside storytelling, movie nights under the stars, & visits from Disney Characters; Hawaiian activities & crafts, including hula & lei-making classes; and Island excursions, from surf lessons to hiking.
