アウラニひとり旅(空港やホテル間の移動とアウラニのお部屋) / Traveling Alone to Aulani, Disney Resort and Spa (Hotel room and grand transportation)

Hi I had arrived my home from my trip to Hawaii. I have jet lag a bit but I would like to start reporting. Today's story is about hotel room and grand transportation.


As I wrote in previous blog, I reserved Roberts Hawaii 's Airport express shuttle. Soon after I arrived Honolulu airport, I asked a staff with yellow Aloha shirt to check in. As I told that I already made reservation and my destination was Ko olina resort, the staff told me to wait for 15 minutes. But it was only 5 minutes finally. The ride from Honolulu airport to Aulani was only 25 minutes. It was smooth. As for returning trip to the airport, I met driver in front of the hotel. The car went around some hotels to pick up other guests and came to airport in safety. I think Airport express shuttle is good for solo traveler.


アウラニからワイキキへは、タクシーで移動しました。特に予約はせずに、チェックアウト後、ホテルのタクシー乗り場に来ていたものに乗車しました。アウラニのお兄さんに「マタ、来週ネ」と見送られ、、、来週も来れたらいいのに!と強く思いました。どうやらチャーリーズタクシーと提携しているみたいで、何台か待っていたタクシーもすべてチャーリーズタクシーのものでした。こちらも全く問題なく、45分くらいで到着、料金はチップを含めて111.83 USDでした。クレジットカードでお会計したので、自分で計算をしなくても、チップを何%にしたいか選択するだけでした。これはらくちん。
From Aulani to Waikiki, I used a taxi. No reservation, I just went to the entrance. A cast members of Aulani said to me "See you next week" :) I really wanted to do so but I left... I think Aulani have partnership with Charley's Taxi, because other cars were also from Charley's. It was nice and smooth ride, 111.83 USD including tips.


Then let's start about my room at Aulani. Official check in time is 3:00pm but I could start to use the room when I arrive luckily. As its category was Pool side garden view, I could see Makahiki restaurant and pool from veranda. While window was open, I could hear some song from Makahiki in the morning, and children's voice in the pool. It was happy time. It was on 5th floor, sea can be seen a bit. I think if it is more higher floor, it might be more expensive category, such as Ocean view.


In room amenity was good enough. Refrigerator, coffee maker, iron, security box, slipper and tooth brush. Fluffy bathrobe and bathtub were good combination for those who love taking baths. No electric kettle, no drinking water in the room. Wi-fi connection was available across the resort, but it was weak at night. As for the complimentary gift from Mickey Net, a travel agency I used, I got beautiful dish of strawberry chocolate. Thank you so much:)



I will write about meet and greet with Disney Characters. See you.
