Nestled on Oahu’s western shore, away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki is the small resort area of Ko Olina. While there are a few resorts here of note, the most well-known is Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa. The resort was designed with families in mind, which is probably why it was recognized as No.1 in the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2014 in the category of Top Family Hotel: USA. With pool parties, movie nights, and a variety of kid’s entertainment as well as an adults-only pool bar, the entire family will be in bliss at this Disney Resort.
