Ahh a spa day, doesn’t that sound absolutely magical? What sounds even more magical is a Disney spa day! We are excited to announce that Laniwai – A Disney Spa at Aulani will reopen on June 15 and we know Guests planning a trip this Hawaiian resort will be so excited!

Due to the pandemic, things will look a little different at the spa. The Aulani website states:


As we continue our phased reopening, we’ve made updates in consideration of guidance from public health authorities, appropriate government agencies, and our own team of health and safety experts. These measures are designed to promote:

  • Cleanliness – Cleaning procedures are enhanced throughout Aulani Resort. Extra attention is given to high-traffic areas, including public elevators, handrails, benches, tables, handles, restrooms and more. Hand sanitizers are located throughout the Resort.
  • Physical distancing – measures may include:
    • Signage and Ground Markings: Please follow directional signage and ground markings, which have been installed throughout Aulani Resort to help Guests better navigate common areas while practicing physical distancing.
    • Physical Barriers: Physical barriers have been added in select locations where it is difficult to maintain strict physical distancing guidelines. These may be visible in areas around cash registers or at the Front Desk, for example, to help promote physical distances between people.

The Hawaiian word “laniwai” (pronounced lah-nee-vai) means “freshwater heaven.” I couldn’t think of a more appropriate name for a Hawaiian spa and I’m ready to book my appointment asap. You can start reserving your spa session starting June 15! Spa services now include add ons such as foot massage, intense hydration facial, anti-aging LED mask, and more!

Did you also know that this spa has an amazing outdoor hydrotherapy garden called Kula Wai? You can reserve a complimentary visit to this amazing spot when you book your spa services. The 5,000 square-foot garden retreat includes private vitality pools, a reflexology path, six rain-style showers, whirlpool jet spas and more.
