Have you ever wondered what a room at the Disney’s Aulani Resort and Spa in Oahu, Hawaii looks like?
Here is a photo tour of an Aulani one bedroom villa.
Disney Aulani One Bedroom Villa
When we stayed at Aulani, we had a one bedroom Villa. It was spacious and the kids and I had more than enough room. The villa is 756 sq ft. Any family of 4 or 5 will have plenty of room in a one bedroom villa. I ask if most rooms were like the one we were staying in and they told me they were. They also have studio units, but I didn’t take any photos of them, as well as regular hotel rooms.
There is a full kitchen which is so handy when traveling with kids. Everything is full size including the fridge, stove, dishwasher, and coffee maker. They provided coffee daily which I appreciated. I didn’t have a blender in my kitchen and called down to inquire for one and they had it up to my room in less than 10 minutes! Basically anything that isn’t in there, they can get you. If you want to get groceries for your kitchen there is a Walmart and a Safeway in the nearby town. I picked up a bottle of Malibu Rum at Walmart for $13 and mixed my own drinks all week which saved a ton of money.
You can see the dining room in this picture and it seats 5 people easily. We ate in our room more than I thought we would. It was so comfortable to hang out and relax. They have games you can check out from the family center and we would sit around the dining table snacking and playing games.
The living room was large and had enough seating for us. You can see exactly what it looks like in this photo. I looked at two other rooms while we were here and they both looked identical to this. The couch folds into a bed and you can sleep two kids on it. Just off the living room is a large patio with two chairs on it. (With two patios we enjoyed some really nice views! I wish we had a room that faced the middle of the resort with views of the ocean, but we saw the ocean and the resort next door.) Not shown in the above photo is where the tv was. There is a flat screen and under it looks like a storage unit, but it’s a twin bed. You just bring it down and it’s ready to go.
The master bedroom is large with a king size bed. There is another tv in here and there is another patio with chairs and a table. There is a desk in the bedroom and with free wifi I was able to sit there and get some work done.
The bathroom is cleverly designed for families. It is broken up into two spaces with the shower and toilet in one space and a bathtub in the other space. Which means two people can be getting ready at the same time. When you have a family this is a big deal! Also, the bathtub is a jetted tub!
There are a washer and dryer in the room in between the kitchen and dining area. This is a big deal. This means everyone can travel lighter because you can easily do laundry during your stay. We went on a never ending hike through the jungle and were covered in mud when we showed up to check in, so needless to say I was thrilled to see the washer and dryer!
