Local Area

Aulani Resort is perfectly positioned on the beautiful beaches of Ko Olina on the leeward coast of O‘ahu.

Cultural Connection

“Aulani” means “messenger of a chief.” Here, you’ll discover the legends of the Hawaiian islands.  A major initiative at Aulani has been its use of the Hawaiian language, which is spoken by just three percent of the islands’ residents. The language is present in place names across the resort, but especially at the ‘Ōlelo Room, a lounge and bar overlooking a koi pond on the edge of the resort’s pool area. Every member of the lounge’s staff is fluent in Hawaiian, and its décor features wood carvings of a variety of common objects labeled with their Hawaiian names.
