Aloha, from Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa! Following a most wonderful stay in Japan , we are now staying in Hawaii at Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa.
Aulani is an exceptional experience with a very inclusive history of Hawaii within its boundaries! The entire resort is like a big museum of Hawaiian culture with little touches of Disney throughout.
To me, the photo above represents so much of what Aulani is all about. Just a simple piece of artwork on the wall that many will walk by and some may not even take much notice, but this mural represents Pele, the fire goddess, along with her brother who uses his shark form to serve as her guide.
The wall opposite the mural may appear to just be pretty tile, but it’s actually made from the inside of coconut, or “niu,” shells! There are also tiles above, not pictured, made from the outside of the coconut shells. These types of details are abundant here at Aulani.
