The hotel

The magic of Disney meets the splendour of Hawaii at the Aulani. Relaxed yet regal, highlights include a white sandy beach, tropical gardens, luxurious lagoons and sparkling waterfalls. There’s also the most incredible water complex on-site with winding paths to explore, twisting through misty caverns and lava rocks, thrilling water slides, an interactive play area and 4 whirlpool spas, 2 of which are placed to capture perfectly the Hawaiian sunset! There are water sports in abundance on the beach as well as your own private snorkelling lagoon – Rainbow Reef – offering you close encounters with Angel Fish, Butterfly Fish, Tangs and many, many more. Aunty’s Beach House is a uniquely themed kids’ club with a whole range of exciting activities including traditional wildlife and nature excursions, Hawaiian games, video games, arts and crafts and, of course, Disney movies galore! Whilst younger members of the family are busy, treat yourself to a spa visit, soaking up the serene atmosphere that prevails and waving any lingering cares goodbye. There’s also a state-of-the-art health club with cardio equipment to keep you trim, yoga and tai chi classes.

This hotel is absolutely stunning. It show cases everything you expect Hawaii to be and more so! Disney definitely put Hawaii first in the design.

Spent a week at the Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. It is beautiful and on the other side of the island away from Waikiki. On property is a private beach, a wedding chapel, pools for children and one for adults. There is a lazy river tube ride that is so much fun with a little extra twist--you get wet. There is a place to snorkel with fish in a… Read more
Spent a week at the Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. It is beautiful and on the other side of the island away from Waikiki. On property is a private beach, a wedding chapel, pools for children and one for adults. There is a lazy river tube ride that is so much fun with a little extra twist--you get wet. There is a place to snorkel with fish in a little cove. Restaurants with characters, a Luau, another place where you can order something to go that is cooked for take out or eat at one of the tables outside. Shops to buy gifts. You can buy a "character" cup for $20 that can be refilled as many times are you like with various types of beverages including coffee. The Spa is quiet and the manicure was excellent. You name it and it's at this resort. The people are very friendly and always willing to assist you. Our room which was a one-bedroom suite included a washer and dryer thus, we didn't need half of the clothes that we brought on this trip. Read less

I put a group of three couples and we splurged for a 3 bedroom oceanfront villa. The room was fantastic. The people mostly friendly and helpful. From there, we were very disappointed.

I put a group of three couples and we splurged for a 3 bedroom oceanfront villa. The room was fantastic. The people mostly friendly and helpful. From there, we were very disappointed. Only One real sit down restaurant, One Buffet restaurant, and a few snack stands. This place is located far from everything. There are very few food options in the area. And if it rains, forget it. Most of the venues are outside and inside the lines were extremely long and very slow. In the morning the only coffee, light breakfast location has only 5 tables under roof. The adults only pool is extremely small. The man-made beach lagoon was only so-so. I would not ever go back. Read less

A great place for the family who is really searching for that vacation that leaves an impression on you. Our family was sad to leave after staying for a week. The service was disney quality but at a slower paced which could be fraustrating if it was food service related. The rooms were great, but ours was placed right above the luau and the constant noise from performers practicing during the day to actual performances at night made it difficult for our son to nap during the day and fall asleep at night. The property is absolutely amazing, the view of the ocean from the infinity pool or the adult only hot tub is a sight that you will never forget. My only issue with the location is that it is rigth next to another hotel and so people from all over were walking through so you didn't feel as secluded as you wanted. With all of that being said, it was still one of my favorite vacations. The lazy river is amazing, you get to enjoy an amazing sunsets everynight, the spa was increadible, and you have many opportunities to just relax and appreciate what Disney has to offer. Read less

Unless you enjoy throwing money away or waiting in lines all day to see characters this place is not for you! Rooms are tiny! Beds are hard. Pillows are chunky. The ground is so slippery kids are falling and getting injured all day long. The food is expensive and horrible. Zero healthy options. Everything is extra. They make it impossible to see characters unless you call a random # to hear what time and when there will be a brief appearance. Then there is a 45 min line for a 5 second hug and picture that costs extra. HUGE disappointment for my 3 yr old on his bday. The kids water park is poorly designed and is a scull fracture waiting to happen. Huge lines for the slides. No chairs at pool or beach unless you get there at 6am. All events sell out. This place is jammed with adults with no kids who have no business occupying spots in line in my oppinion. Stay far away!!!!! Read less
