Aloha Aulani

Helping you make the most of your stay.

Free things to do


Two main pools, an adult-only pool, two slides, a lazy river, three hot tubs, a children’s splash area, a toddlers splash area, and the beach make up all the free swimming activities.


Take a tour with Uncle and learn more about the resort or about the Nature and Wildlife of Aulani Resort or the Art of Aulani Resort.  Both tours will leave you with some knowledge about the resort and the influence of the islands upon it.

Kid’s Club: Aunty’s Beach House 

A wonderland for children ages 3 to 12 from 8am to 9pm daily.  Featuring activities, arts and crafts, games, toys, a playground, and fantastic staff, many children stay for hours on end.  This is free place to drop off your kids for some adult-only time for yourself.  Many activities are included, but there are a few for an additional fee.

Firepit Storytelling

Join Uncle by the ocean view firepit for riveting storytelling in the evenings.  Stories cover Hawai’i legends, old and new.  Sometimes a special guest (Moana) stops by.

Pau Hana Room 

This hidden away room is the place to borrow movies and games, start the menehune adventure trail, pick up some coloring pages, or join in on one of the many activities, both free and paid.

Menuhune Adventure Trail 

An interactive game played on a tablet that guides you around the resort.  The game is hosted by “Aunty” who sends you to different locations where the Menehunes help you and others out with some magic.

Character Meet and Greets

Learn about which characters you are likely to see around the resort and where they are most likely to be found.

Movie Nights

Enjoy a movie under the stars.


While you can go to any beach on the island for free (all Hawai’i beaches are public), at the beach in front of Aulani, you can visit Makiki Joes and borrow boogie boards, sand toys, and lifejackets.  Also, if you look on your Daily `Iwa, they frequently have free organized activities in the sand such as early morning workout classes or sand castle building.
