Disney’s Aulani Resort and Spa in  Ko Olina Hawaii has so much to tell you. Stories are woven into the plants, carved into the rocks, and the very fabrics that surround you.

For instance the small shrubs with blueberries in Waikolohe Valley. This small plant can be used to dye kapa. The people of old Hawaii used for this to make clothing and even bedding. You can even take classes in the community hall with a kapa practitioner from Wai Anae. Everything, including the activities, really incorporate Hawaiian culture. The outdoor yoga by the lagoon reflects the Hawaiian ideal of harmony with nature. The round glass balls on the garden area’s lights represent the kukui nuts that early Polynesians used to burn in torches.
