Top 20 Resorts in Hawaii: Readers' Choice Awards

Source: Conde Nast TravelerJW Ihilani

20. JW MARRIOTT IHILANI KO OLINA RESORT AND SPA, OAHU
Readers' Choice Rating: 84.8
This west-coast 16-story resort has an "open, airy lobby and plantation shutters." Azul specializes in fresh fish and aged steaks; Naupaka Terrace focuses on Pacific Rim cuisine. Along with "amazing ocean views," rooms have teak furniture, duvets with Hawaiian tapa cloth designs, and "huge walk-in closets." The Ko Olina marina is a nearby base for sailing and diving excursions. Children can learn lei making and hula dancing at the kids' club.

Aulani

15. AULANI DISNEY RESORT, OAHU
Readers' Choice Rating: 87.4
This $800-million Disney beach resort boasts 359 rooms and a sprawling pool complex. The calm waters of Ko'Olina's four man-made lagoons are perfect for swimmers, but the resort's main attraction is the pool complex—interlocking areas with waterslides, a lazy river for tubing, a wet playground, and a conservation pool with stingrays. Apart from meet-and-greets with Mickey and Minnie and themed activities like "Surf's Up" time with Chip and Dale, the property feels more like a five-star family-focused resort than a Disney showcase. And it lives up to its promise to educate kids about Hawaiian culture—through drawings depicting island history in the soaring lobby, for example, and storytelling around the fire pit. Bedrooms are large and comfortable, with less-expensive units facing the courtyard and parking lot.
