Spending time at Aulani in the room and at the pools is an experience all by itself. But did you know that Disney Aulani Resort offers a world-class spa tucked within the grounds? Laniwai Spa is truly a unique experience that all Aulani fans should try. Here is everything you need to know about Laniwai, a Disney Aulani Resort spa.
Like the rest of the resort, Laniwai makes sure you learn bits of Hawaiian culture when you visit. When you arrive at the spa, you are greeted and asked to close your eyes. You can then pick out a stone that has a Hawaiian word etched on it. Then you are asked to toss it into the water pond and watch the reflection of light on the walls. Then, you get access to a full-size locker with slippers and a plush robe.
Laniwai Spa offers co-ed facilities like a massage room and relaxation room if you want to relax with your partner. Arrive early to your appointment so you can experience the hydrotherapy garden called Kula Wai. The Kula Wai is the only hydrotherapy garden on Oahu and consists of heated soaking tubs, a rain shower circuit, a heated whirlpool, and a cold plunge. All of these amenities are strategically spaced among the palm trees, plumeria, cabanas, and fountains.
If co-ed isn’t your thing there are separate relaxation rooms for men and women. Here is the complete list of amenities that Kula Wai offers:
- Private vitality baths
- Co-ed soaking pools
- A reflexology path designed to massage the feet and lower legs
- Cold water therapy plunge pool
- 6 rain-style showers
- Heated whirlpool jet spas
- A lounge area with a menu of healthy foods and beverages
