I updated the layout chart in Post #1. We now know that villas with room numbers ending in xx53 are one-bedroom villas and those ending in xx55 are studios.

Edited 05/04/2012: We now know the location of the studios and the one-bedroom villas for all the lock-offs in Aulani's Phase 1 and Phase 2. The information is posted to the charts in Post #1

View from balcony of 1054. When I get home I'll see if I can find more pics of the unit/views from further back in the balcony.

Ok, so I am confused. We have a One Bedroom Villa - Poolside Gardens View reserved in October. Where will that likely be?

And does anyone know if the handicapped accessible villas are on a particular floor (since that is what we have reserved)?

Thanks!

Thanks!
The one-bedroom Pool View Villas are located in the Ewa Building on floors 3-5 (Villas 352, 452, 552, or 358, 458, 558) and in the Waianae Building on floors 1-5 (Villas 106, 206, 306, 406, 506 or 112, 212, 312, 412, 512).

I don't know where the Handicapped Accessible villas are located at Aulani. If someone gets an HA villa, please let me know and I'll add it to the layout diagrams.

Thanks--the terminology was a bit different so I thought I would check! I'll let you know where the HA villa is located!

I know it's not room 306 of the Waianae Building. We were just there, and, while a lovely villa, it was not Handicapped accessible.

Enjoy your stay at Aulani! We loved it!

I was going to post the view from our room, and was surprised to see Taaren posted it already, as we also stayed in Room 1054. Wow.

Thank you so much for all the information. Tomorrow I will be able to book our 12/1/12 arrival 7 months out and have been so unsure of what view to request. I see now we will definitely be happy with a pool view. I plan on calling Member Services to see if I can request a specific building (think we would prefer Eva because it is close to lobby, etc.) otherwise I will book myself online. Once again, thanks so much for all your hard work.

Good luck on getting what you want!. We have booked a Pool View Studio for September 15-22, and we requested the Ewa Building/Near Lobby. The main reason we requested the Ewa Building is that we really don't want a 1st floor villa, and there are a few Pool View villas on the 1st floor in the Waianae Building. Of course, a request is just a request, so no telling what we'll end up with.

We just returned from our stay at Aulani and had a first floor pool view studio and it was wonderful. It was room 110 and it was between the Menehuni Bridge and the bridge to the Koi Pond. I thought it was the best location in the whole resort.

The first pic is that of the Menehuni bridge as seen from our patio.

The next is the pic of the bridge to the Koi Pond as seen from our patio.


We ate a lot of lunches and breakfasts on that patio and had our own cocktails there in the evening.

Here's my DW enjoying a cold beer one night.

I loved our pool view studio we had last January, but I think I'm going to try for a standard view 1 bedroom for our December 2012 trip. I need to save some points for a DL trip in May 2013.

I can't remember the room number, this was the 3rd floor, near elevators.
