KO OLINA RESORT
OAHU’S TOP DESTINATION RESORT COMMUNITYAn Oceanfront ‘Place of Joy’ on West Oahu
Ko Olina Resort is a thriving beachfront resort and residential community on the quiet Western shores of Oahu. What had long been a sleepy retreat with great fishing and compelling surf beaches nestled against the lush Waianae Mountains is no longer an insider’s secret: this world-class destination that is a green oasis just 17 miles from cosmopolitan Honolulu has taken its place on the global stage.
Here, in an expansive setting more reminiscent of a neighbor island getaway, you will find every contemporary comfort and an inviting outdoor lifestyle. Amenities include championship golf, a full-service marina, a prime stretch of white sand beach and seven sparkling ocean lagoons ringed by pathways for strolling, running and biking.
Ko Olina continues to set new standards for luxury vacation resorts with the 2011 opening of Disney’s first resort in Hawaii. Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa
