Those planning a December visit to Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii will want to take note of the following construction update. The Ka Maka Pool and Grotto will be closed for routine maintenance from December 5 – 9, 2022. This includes the Ka Maka whirlpool spa.
The news was posted to the Aulani website this week. This is a story that we’ll continue to follow closely and we promise to keep you posted regarding any additional news regarding the closure.
However, this news should have little impact on your magical getaway to Disney’s tropical island paradise as the property also boasts 8 addition options for water-filled fun. This includes the following:
Aulani is a popular honeymoon destination and it is easy to understand why! Aulani isn’t just for families and the Wailana Pool is a testament to that! This Adults Only pool area is for the exclusive use of guests 18 and up. From lounging poolside with a cocktail in hand to having a relaxing dip in the tranquil pool- this is paradise. The pool itself is a 1,500 square foot tension edge pool. There’s a beautiful water wall feature and lounge area shaded under lush tropical trees.
This is the main family pool area at Aulani and is 8,200 square feet of magic! This zero-entry pool area has something that kids of all ages are sure to love. Even on those cooler Hawaiian mornings the pool is heated to a tropical 86° Kids will love the Volcanic Vertical waterslide. There’s also plenty of poolside seating and some of your favorite Disney characters have even been known to drop by and say hello. Also, be sure to check out the resort activity schedule for special poolside activities from dance parties to teen and tween shindigs.
This area of the Aulani is dedicated to the smallest kids in your family. It’s an interactive splash zone that draws its inspiration from the incredible tidal pools that surround Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa. Designed for children 5 and under it features the hidden Menehune mentioned above, as well as playful water jets adorned with fun aquatic creatures.
This is the perfect splash zone for pint-sized Aulani visitors (kids must be 48″ inches or smaller to hang here.) This water playground comes in at a massive 21,000 square feet which includes a climbing structure, 2 water slides, interactive play stations and some much more. It’s named after the mischievous Menehune “little people” of Hawaiian legend which you’ll find hiding in the area. Go on a bit of a scavenger hunt during your visit and see how many you can find.
Did someone say lazy river? Guests can gently float through the Waikolohe Valley aboard an intertube taking in all of the beautiful sights and sounds of Disney’s tropical island paradise. For those that prefer a slightly faster pace, you’ll also find the Tubestone Curl in this area of Aulani as well. It is an open-air innertube adventure offering a bit of adrenaline before launching you into the Waikolhohe Stream!
