Honolulu, Oahu

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. Four restaurants incorporate a fusion of flavours from round the world, using the finest local ingredients to tantalise your taste buds.

Hawaiian history with a touch of Disney for the kids. Rooms are nice, food is excellent, staff is perfect. The mountain slide is for the kids and the lazy river is for the adults. the private lagoon is pretty cool too. This is a 10+ but can be pricey

There's a reason why Disney Aulani is one of the most beautiful resorts in the world. First of, it's Disney. Second, it's all about service. You really get what you pay for.

There's a reason why Disney Aulani is one of the most beautiful resorts in the world. First of, it's Disney. Second, it's all about service. You really get what you pay for. From the moment we stepped food off our Lyft, we were greeted with warmth. I booked my stay via David's Vacation Club, which buys points directly from the DVC owners. It's much cheaper than booking through Aulani and the rooms are timeshare style rooms. We also went during Thanksgiving, where a few pools were being renovated, so we received a $50 daily credit. The pools are gorgeous and we had a ton of fun on the slides. The kids had a blast. Also, they LOVED Aunty's beach house. It is free babysitting included in the price of your stay. It was nice to bring the kids there for an hour while we got ready. We also attended the DVC timeshare presentation (60min) and received two free Adult luau tickets. Totally worth it! The Luau was excellent! We cannot wait to return! Read less

First time in Hawai'i, all I wanted was sun and sand. No kids. But that didn't make it weird. Upon arriving the staff was already warm and kind. Private beach was worth the price as they provide beach chairs and towels. Pools were typically busy but I found a smaller pool with no guests. The lazy river was a favorite, and again, at any age- not… Read more

Private beach was worth the price as they provide beach chairs and towels. Pools were typically busy but I found a smaller pool with no guests. The lazy river was a favorite, and again, at any age- not weird. Haha. Food was mediocre to blah. Overpriced and not worth it. However the time I spent there the resort had construction going on where some areas were closed. They expended a credit during this time frame which definitely helped. There is a small shopping plaza across the way with restaurants, coffee shops and an ABC store. Perfect. The best part. It was clean! I know the island varies and I knew I wanted my first visit to be a more relaxing one. Overall I was very satisfied with my stay and the staff here is wonderful! Read less
