Aulani is located among the numerous beaches of the Ko Olina Resort & Marina. This family resort community mixes single-family homes, townhouses and villas featuring a variety of amenities. It's a popular vacation destination because of its white sandy beaches, premium snorkeling and great shopping. Also, the world-class Marina delivers the ultimate in sports fishing and recreational boating.
The interior of Aulani is inspired by layers — of color, patterns and refined thought — and traditional images found throughout Hawaii. The colors of Aulani reflect those of the island, such as the red feathers of the `I`iwi bird or the yellow petals of native hibiscus. And everywhere the menehune — the "little people" of legend — hide, play and make mischief throughout the artwork of the Resort.
