    I have looked everywhere I could think of and decided to come to the experts!

    We will be renting points for our trip in Aug. at AKL and would love to know what is supplied in the rooms.

    Linens? we use alot - two long haired females, bath products? - is there shampoo and soap or should we bring it. Etc.

    Any tips would be awesome!

    Thanks in advance.

    You will get the standard set of towels - so should be 4 bath towels, washcloths, hand towels. You will also have the small travel size of shampoo, conditioner and soap or shower gel. That's about it most likely. You may get a small bottle of lotion - it seems to vary by resort.

    But you will only get that replenished and your towels replaced on your trash/towel day - Day 4 of your stay.

    Anything else or any more than that you will want to bring for yourself.

    On Day 7, you would have a full room cleaning/trash/towel if you are there that long.

    Are you in a studio, one bedroom, or larger? Are you at Kidani or Jambo? At Kidani in a one bedroom or larger, there is an extra bathroom and a full extra set of bath towels and shampoo/conditioner and soaps.

    Thanks!

    We are in a studio. It helps to know what we should bring and what we don't.
