New Disney Resort Coming to Oahu

By
Real Estate Agent with East Oahu Realty

Aulani, Disney Resort on OahuOpening in the Fall, 2011, the new Disney Resort, Aulani, will be a destination located near historical sites on the western side of Oahu on 21 acres of oceanfront property in the Ko Olina Resort & Marina development. The resort is planned to have 360 hotel rooms and 481 two-bedroom equivalent Disney Vacation Club villas.

"The name 'Aulani' expresses a connection to tradition and deep story-telling - and its roots are here in this land," said Joe Rohde, senior vice president, Creative for Walt Disney Imagineering. "We're so grateful to the local Hawaiians who led us to the discovery of this name, and our goal is to live up to its meaning."

Design plans call for amenities to engage every member of the family, a hallmark of a Disney vacation. Among the recreational highlights planned for the resort are pools and sunset-facing hot tubs, a snorkeling lagoon, a variety of kids' club and other play programs for children, and a river, suitable for tube floating, running through a specially created volcanic outcropping.

The resort will also include an 18,000-square-foot spa designed with families in mind. The resort, built adjacent to a crystal-blue lagoon and a white-sand beach, is planned to also have two restaurants, a 14,545-square-foot conference center and 48,685 square feet of outdoor venues. Located nearby are the existing Ko Olina Marina and a Ted Robinson-designed, 18-hole championship golf course.

When you plan your vacation next year to enjoy the Aulani, be sure and spend some time looking at the real estate opportunities on Oahu, and Hawaii Kai in particular.  It's a great time to become a Hawaiian Investor.

Very cool... My husband and I loved Maui and Lanaii and now our daughter is headed this summer to Kauai. We live in the DC area, so it is quite a long trip, but sooooo worth it. What a gorgeous part of the world. Truly pardadise!
