Located on the island of Oahu, Disney's Aulani Vacation Club Villas are the ideal choice for families who love to vacation in Hawaii. With Disney timeshare resales, it is possible for anyone to enjoy the magic of an island getaway.
This popular timeshare resort is tucked away from Waikiki's bustle in Ko Olina, a peaceful retreat. Thanks to a coved-in beach, this resort promises idyllic ocean swimming, even for little ones. If you don't feel like visiting the beach, simply head to the pool complex, which boasts a man-made snorkeling reef, a lazy river and two exciting waterslides.
Families will love the activities and amenities at this property. These include character breakfasts that include some of the most beloved Disney personalities. Within the complex are a private marina and the Ko Olina Golf Course as well as a state-of-the-art fitness center and spa. Additionally, the rooms are lovely and well-appointed with tasteful Hawaiian décor.
This Hawaii timeshare is secluded, so it takes planning to get to off-property attractions and entertainment. Waikiki is an approximate 40-minute drive from the resort.
If you're used to vacationing at mainland Disney hotels, you'll discover that the brand's themes are subtler here. The service is outstanding, your family will enjoy delicious dining and the kids will definitely love being catered to.
This may be the premier resort for families on Oahu.
In the Hawaiian language, "Ko Olina" means "place of joy." This is a fitting name for a community that is essentially a master-planned resort. In fact, it's apt to think of Ko Olina as an enormous, gated community that houses four man-made lagoons, a top-rated golf course and several luxury hotels in addition to numerous activities.
Ko Olina is found on Oahu's western side. It's quieter than super-busy Waikiki, making it a favorite for families who want to slow down and relax.
This is a community that's bursting with things to do. Your family might want to swim in the lagoons, try some of the hiking trails, go snorkeling, enjoy some stand-up paddle boarding, improve their golf game or go sailing.
Ko Olina was established in the 1980s, and it boasts residential communities as well as resorts. An excellent location on Oahu's leeward side makes for drier, more predictable weather. This means that golfers can make the most of the award-winning course and also the conditions are always right for sailing.
Did you know that Ko Olina has a water park? If you want something a little different from the beach or the pool, visit the Wet 'n Wild Hawaii water park. You won't be disappointed!
There's so much to do within Ko Olina that you almost don't have to leave to have the total experience. However, most visitors are excited to explore more of Oahu, like Honolulu and Waikiki, and that means it's necessary to rent a car.
At Disney's Aulani Vacation Club Villas, the pool complex is so impressive that it's in a class by itself. It's regarded by many as the best pool in Ko Olina, and some visitors go so far as to say that it's the best on Oahu.
The pool area at the resort is huge. Centrally located, it is in many ways the heart of the property. The company focused on bringing an element of magic to the scene, constructing a realistic-looking volcano as a centerpiece. Kids will find a play area, and there also are two water slides, a man-made reef and a lazy river. It would be easy to spend days appreciating the artistry of it all.
During peak swimming hours, expect the pool complex to be busy. It's not unusual to find the four hot tubs also crowded with guests. However, the whirlpool experience here is second-to-none as two of the hot tubs are infinity models that overlook the beach.
Throughout the day, beloved Disney characters stroll through the pool area, taking photos with fans and leading games and activities. If you want to avoid the bustle, retreat to the quiet pool while the kids play with Goofy by the volcano.
These Disney timeshare resales boast Oahu's only private snorkeling lagoon. Known as Rainbow Reef, the experience provides guests with an opportunity to view amazing aquatic life without diving into the ocean. The entrance fee may be purchased by the day or for the entire length of your stay, and it includes a life vest and snorkeling gear.
If you want to have a more upscale experience, reserve one of the eight cabanas. Each one features free bottled water, a bowl of fruit, a refrigerator, a ceiling fan and a flat-screen television.
Ko Olina was developed with four man-made lagoons. This Hawaii timeshare sits on Lagoon One, also known as the "Whale Lagoon," which it shares with the JW Marriott resort. A paved path takes guests from the villas to the lagoon. Walk a bit beyond the lagoon to find a beautiful natural beach as well.
The lagoon features extremely fine white sand that was imported from Australia. With calm and clear water, the lagoon is the ideal place to swim, even for little ones. Beach cabanas may be rented here as well as kayaks, snorkel sets and stand-up paddle boards.
There's a free assortment of boogie boards, umbrellas, beach chairs and sand toys for guests to use, and hosted activities are regularly offered. These may include toddler play parties, canoe racing, beach games and sand sculpture contests.
The resort's gym is beautiful and well-appointed. Overall, it contains 2,000 square feet filled with cardio and strength training equipment from Life Fitness. A stretching area and free weights are available too, and guests may sign up for the fee-based personal or group training sessions.
When you're ready for total relaxation, head to the Laniwai Spa. Many of the treatments take advantage of natural Hawaiian ingredients such as hibiscus, plumeria and ginger to ensure a one-of-a-kind experience.
