KO OLINA, Hawaii, Oct. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii, invites families to experience all the fun and magic of this new vacation paradise with a special grand opening offer.
Guests will receive a fifth night free* at Aulani when they purchase a consecutive four-night stay. Guests may book this grand opening offer beginning today (October 14, 2011) and running through December 16, 2011, by visiting www.aulani.com or by calling toll-free (866) 411-3883 and mentioning offer code Y5J.
The limited time Aulani special offer is available for stays most nights from November 27 to December 16, 2011; January 4 to January 12, 2012; and January 16 to January 25, 2012.
Set on a beautiful lagoon along the coast of Oahu, Aulani combines the beauty and spirit of the islands with the magic of Disney storytelling and guest service, creating an unforgettable Hawaiian family vacation experience.
With a fifth night free, Aulani guests will enjoy more moments of relaxation and exhilaration at the world-class resort. The adventures abound at Aulani, from splashing in the pools, slides and streams of Waikolohe Valley to basking in the beachfront bliss of a sunset over the Pacific ocean.
Each day of their stay, Aulani guests are able to customize their experiences – unwinding at Laniwai, a Disney Spa, and relaxing in its hydrotherapy garden, snorkeling at Rainbow Reef or discovering the island on a specially planned excursion with an Adventure Guide. Among the unique experiences at Aulani are the Makai Preserve stingray adventure, the Painted Sky teen lounge and spa, and the Menehune Bridge, a water adventure full of fun and surprises.
Aulani occupies 21 acres of oceanfront property in Ko Olina, adjacent to a nine-acre, crystal-blue lagoon and white-sand beach. Ko Olina is 17 miles from Honolulu International Airport and less than an hour from Waikiki Beach. When all phases are complete, Aulani will include 359 traditional hotel rooms and 481 two-bedroom equivalent Disney Vacation Club villas in two towers, each featuring rooms that offer thrilling views of the ocean, mountains and the magnificent, lush surroundings.
Aulani features two signature restaurants - the full-service 'AMA'AMA and the buffet-style Makahiki - offering foods unique to Hawaii.
Something for everyone
Family-friendly resort amenities include the 18,000-square-foot Laniwai, a Disney Spa, with 15 treatment rooms and a fitness center. Many spa treatments draw upon Hawaiian healing traditions.
Young guests have their very own kids' club, Aunty's Beach House. Here, children explore Hawaiian culture through supervised entertainment, including interactive touch tables, wildlife and nature programs, arts and crafts, Disney movies and traditional Hawaiian games.
Children of all ages will delight in Waikolohe Valley, Aulani's seven-acre water play area. Here guests encounter the Waikolohe Stream – the resort's mysterious (yet fun) tube-floating watercourse – a cloaking mist and several hundred feet of additional surprises.
For those who love waterslides, Tubestone Curl, the resort's tube slide, and Volcanic Vertical, Aulani's tunnel slide, provide thrills galore. Guests also interact with native Hawaiian fish, including angelfish, butterfly fish and tangs, in the 3,800-square-foot Rainbow Reef snorkel lagoon, the only one of its kind on Oahu.
The Makai Preserve conservation pool offers an interactive experience that allows guests to stroke the velvety backs of gentle stingrays (available by reservation only). A portion of the proceeds from this activity support research and conservation efforts in Hawaii through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund. Water activities at Aulani also include a quiet adult pool, wading pool and, for the ultimate relaxation, sunset-facing whirlpool spas.
Looking beyond its own magical grounds, Aulani offers a menu of Oahu excursions with the aid of local experts. These include exploring tropical forests, hiking local mountains, sailing aboard catamarans, swimming with dolphins, cooking with local chefs, following a ghost tour and more. The discovery excursions are specially designed for Aulani guests by Adventures by Disney and are hosted by a knowledgeable, friendly Adventure Guide.
