There’s plenty to do at Ko Olina. I highly recommend heading over to the Disney’s Aulani Resort for its entertainment (much of it free). We caught the Hula show last night, and the kids really loved it. The JW Marriott Ilihani next door is just wrapping up a renovation and it sparkles. It’s a great location for corporate and executive meetings, and I’m told the NFL likes to check into this place before the Pro Bowl. It also has a well-regarded spa, I’m told.
If you go, make sure you get a room with a kitchen. Trust me. Dining options are limited, and you’ll want to cook your own food. Get a Safeway card.
I’m back on the mainland on Tuesday, but I already miss this place. Even before I feel the first blast of cold air. That’s when I’m going to be homesick for Hawaii. And I’m not even from here.
