I'm confused, though. Are you sure your villa number was 1601? I didn't think there was a villa numbered 1601. Could you have been in 1612?

O might need to change my chart in Post #1 if you actually had villa 1601!

Thanks for letting me know. I was afraid I'd have to redo my layout charts!!! I've added your villa to the list in Post #1.

By the way, you had a great view!

This is beautiful. We're going in March, starting off in an "ocean view" studio then switching over to a 1BR standard view. I'd be really happy if I have a view like this!!

So this technically isn't a villa but might be interesting from another perspective. Tried getting into Aulani on DVC points but got shut out - no openings found and nothing came through on the wait list for us. We went with our backup position, a booked reservation for a hotel room at Aulani. This is the view from room 947, partial ocean view, in the Waianae building (last room at the end of the hallway, closest to the front of the hotel). Hope this helps somebody!

Looking to the right from the balcony:

Thanks, Cinderpamela, for sharing your photos. In just 33 days we'll be checking into a Pool View Studio and I keep wondering which villa we will get.

Thanks, Spleen! It looks like a great view. Is room 947 officially classified as "partial ocean view?"

I've thought about expanding my Aulani layout charts to include the hotel side of the resort. But unlike the DVC villas (which are all listed in the Aulani Master Declaration) I have yet to see a layout for the hotel rooms. And besides, just tracking the DVC villas is keeping me busy enough.

We were told by the front desk that it was a partial ocean view. Seemed fair enough based on the view that we had ... I know some places that would have classified it as an ocean view, not a partial. Had a great short stay in it but did miss our villa setup, especially the microwave!

We just got back from a week-long stay in a one-bedroom pool view villa. I requested the highest floor possible and far away from the lobby in hopes of a glimpse of ocean and ended up in room 458.


Looking straight towards the other tower.


This was a corner room and if you stood at the end of the balcony and looked slightly left you could juuuuust make out the dark blue water of the ocean. It was slightly easier to see in person but not by much.


Looking down, an entrance to the lazy river.


Looking down and to the right. You could see the balcony off the lobby as well as where the band played at night. It was nice hearing the music but if you shut the sliding door you couldn't really hear it anymore.



Overall we really liked this location. It was on the end of the building and the room closest to the elevators. Pool access was super easy... Just down the elevators and over a bridge. We liked listening to the music at night. The area below us was also used as a character photo location so we got to see most of the characters at one point or another. And it wasn't very noisy during the day, like the other tower (closer to the kid's water area) might be.

All these lovely pool view photos are making me want to use the 2 night credit points to upgrade from a standard to pool view in Dec. Oh decisions decisions.

I would say it was worth it. The sunset views were wonderful!
We knew that we probably wouldn't be back for awhile so we used the extra points with no regrets!

Bumping this thread to remind readers that they can post their Aulani views on this thread. My wife and I will be at Aulani beginning September 15, about the time that the construction/renovations are scheduled to begin. We'll post photos of our villa as well as any signs of construction that we see.
