Oahu’s city of Kapolei has been blossoming into a premier getaway location over the last few years. From quaint, agricultural beginnings, Kapolei, and its resort section Ko Olina, have become an urban center that has brought in over 15,000 local residents and thousands of visitors each year.
This metropolis paradise has been dubbed Oahu’s “Second City” as a runner up to the state capital Honolulu. With all of the amenities of an urban city and the tranquility of a beach town, it’s no wonder why Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club timeshares are flying off the shelves.
The name Kapolei comes from the term “volcanic cone” or Pu’u o Kapolei. “Pu’u” means hill and “Kapo lei” means beloved Kapo. According to Hawaiian legend, Kapo was the sister of Pele, the volcano goddess that acts as the mother of the Hawaiian islands.
The area was once a small patch of agricultural land, mainly used for producing sugarcane and pineapples. But today, the area has been developed into a Mecca of local restaurants and home of luxurious resorts.
Just 30 minutes from Honolulu is the peaceful Ko Olina Beach Club. This Marriott resort is a 642-acre paradise complete with soothing waterfalls and a crystal clear lagoon. This resort sports three swimming pools and seven whirlpool spas for the family to enjoy, as well as a private beach oasis perfect for watching those signature Hawaiian sunsets.
Also located in Ko Olina is Disney’s Aulani Resort. This beautiful resort comes with all of the amenities of a world-class resort as well as the endless fun of a Disney hotel. From a quiet evening in the romantic infinity-edge pool to fun in the sun with Aunty’s Beach House kids club, this resort has something for everyone to enjoy. Whether lounging poolside with Minnie Mouse or go on a treasure hunt with Goofy, Aulani helps you do Hawaii the Disney way.
Across the street from Disney’s Aulani Resort is a local restaurant called the Monkeypod Kitchen. A must for visitors and locals alike, the Monkeypod offers unique, refreshing cocktails, a robust selection of craft beers, and delectable dishes for lunch and dinner. Take advantage of Monkeypod’s Happy Hour and stop in for some afternoon spirits and scrumptious appetizers before sauntering home to your cozy vacation villa.
Kapolei is full of adventurous day activities that will help you explore the island and soak up the sun. The Ko Olina Golf Club is Oahu’s premier golf course; an 18-hole golfer’s paradise voted one of the best resort courses in the United States. If you’re traveling with kids, Wet’n’Wild Hawaii is an exciting 25-acre open-air water park complete with slides, pools and hot tubs.
With average temperatures ranging from 60 to 80 degrees year-round, premier beaches, and big city amenities with small town charm, it’s easy to see why Kapolei has become a hot spot for travelers. Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club is the perfect way to visit Oahu. Its one-, two-, and three-bedroom villas come with a washer and dryer and fully equipped kitchen, which make your stay easy and convenient. Its location in Ko Olina makes it easy to walk from attraction to attraction and the private lagoon makes for ideal snorkeling.
