Unforgettable Details of Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa: ‘Alohi Point

As an adult vacationing at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, I recommend watching at least one Hawaiian sunset at the spas at ‘Alohi Point. These two oceanfront, infinity-edge whirlpool spas are the most romantic and idyllic spots in the resort as they appear to cascade into the Pacific Ocean. Today, the “Unforgettable Details of Aulani” series continues on the Disney Parks Blog with a look at this peaceful paradise at Aulani.


According to Aulani Cultural Advisor Kahulu De Santos, ‘alohi means “to sparkle and shimmer.” As the sun sets each day, the surface of the whirlpool spas shimmer with gold. If you are a guest looking up at these two pools from beachside, you’ll see the walls of water sparkling and shimmering, thanks to the elegant glass tiles of sea greens and blues.

As always with this series, Aulani guests are encouraged to look for a few hidden details around the resort. See if you can spot a fish embedded in the rockwork near the railing wall at ‘Alohi Point, and an octopus stretching it’s long tentacles across the outer perimeter of the upper level whirlpool spa!

Where are you looking forward to watching the sun set while visiting Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa? Tell us in the comments below!


  • What kind of fish, do you know Tyler? My wife spotted a fish in the rock work when we went for brunch at Aulani with my sister and her family last fall, and as it turned out to be an ulua, my favorite fish, I happily posed for a picture 🙂

  • I look forward to watching the sunset from our room! It will be our first stay there, for our 10 year wedding anniversary! My husband will actually be home for once, instead of overseas for work. I am from Hawai’i and look forward to being able to see my family & enjoy some Disney as well 🙂

  • Alohi Point sounds good to us. Will be there in August. First time. Excited…
