Need a Reason to Visit Disney’s Aulani Resort? How About the Pools!

Visiting Hawaii will be a once in a lifetime trip for many people, so it’s easy to see why staying at Disney’s Aulani Resort resides at the top of many vacation bucket lists. If you need a reason to plan a trip, look no further than the pools.






Ka Maka Grotto is a family pool at Aulani with views straight out to the ocean, with water flowing over an infinity edge overlooking the beach. The pool water of Ka Maka Grotto is approximately 82 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit year round. This pool is free to enjoy with your stay.

This is a fabulous location to watch the sun go down on a fun-filled day.



The Wailana Pool is for guests 18 years of age and above, and it’s located a little further back from the main pools. This quiet pool features 1,500-square-foot, tension-edge pool with a water wall that empties into the deep end. Tropical shade trees are a highlight of this area, plus there are lots of umbrella covered lounge chairs just perfect for reading a book or napping. There are children running and playing all over Aulani, so if you want some alone time, this is your perfect location.
