551 Ewa Tower

2 Bedroom Villa in the Ewa Tower. The view to the left is of the mountains which we found very peaceful and quiet. We spent so much time at the beach and pool that it was nice to see something different.

Thanks for posting your photos! I've added your villa to the list in Post #1 of this thread.

Was the courtyard that was shown in one of your photos ever used for anything while you were there?

According to my chart, Aulani #551 is a Standard View Two-bedroom dedicated villa.

I never saw the courtyard being used but imagine that it is used for conferences. The building adjacent to the courtyard had a digital screen that i imagine is used to announce meetings and such. It was always very quiet

Finally found your thread. We were in room 913 in phase 2 building. The view was considered ocean view.



It might have had an sunset view but we were never in the room so, I don't know for 100% sure.

The room was noisy at night. We like to sleep with the slider open so we can get fresh air but it was too noisy. The hotel next door had all kinds of deliveries and the trucks backing up and the beeping sound would start. One night I heard a dog barking. Anyways, I'm not sure I'd pick an ocean view again and risk getting this view again. I might be happier with a pool view. The resort is actually set back from the ocean/beach quite a bit. I did trade in at 7 months so, I was still happy we got this room.

Here are some more pictures:

Since we were in a corner the balcony was smallish:



Looking down at the spa:



The rest of my pictures are here:

Looking to book this upcoming Monday for March 2013. Would love to get an ocean view like this.

What would be the best way to put in a request for something similar? Ask for something in the Waianae Building, even numbered room?

Ocean views when Phase 3 options

Trying to get a sense of what the ocean view rooms will look like for the Phase 3 building.

I get a sense of what the rooms facing the pool area will have as a view. One thing I can't tell is what some of the ocean view rooms will face in:

The Phase 3 building, short wing (facing the ocean) - specifically what is next to the buildling on the East side?
The Phase 3 building, long wing (facing AWAY from the pool) - there looks to be a handful of ocean view rooms. I assume they would be closest to the beach...?

So on the east side of Aulani, what is the view like towards the ocean?

I'll be at Aulani in mid-September. I've added your questions to my list and I'll post back. Hopefully, someone will answer your questions before then.

To the East of Aulani currently is an empty lot, waiting to be sold by the developers of the Ko'olina resort. At the moment, you will have a view of a dirt patch if you look down, if you look forward it will be an uninterrupted ocean view. (I think you can see this by looking at Google Earth, just type in Aulani's address and click and drag.)
Once that property gets sold and developed, it may end up being similar to the Ocean Views on the West side and have a hotel in the way, just like the Ihilani is. It really will depend on what whoever develops it decides to build. This may also take some time, as similarly to the Kaanapali area on Maui took about 20 years to sell all the lots to various hoteliers, much of the Ko'olina properties have been up for sale for awhile and not a tremendous deal of developing of more hospitality structures in Hawaii has been happening lately, and what there has been is all timeshare for the last several years.

We were there mid July I'm finally getting to post our view photo. We had a 2BR dedicated (Room 808) and a studio 804. Both were classified as Ocean View.

Here is a view toward the ocean from Rm 808 in the late afternoon:


Here is a panorama that I did of the view from the living room of 808 late afternoon:



Here is view from Rm 804 in the morning:


We loved our room!! It was noisy from the time the kids play pool area opened in the morning (10am??) until when it shut down at night (6pm?). But during those times we were mostly out and about. At night it was peaceful enough to sleep with the slider open and listen to the ocean.
