Neighborhood Profile – Ko Olina

Ko Olina™ is a world class resort and Marina located on Oahu’s beautiful West Coast. In Hawaiian, Ko Olina™ means “Place of Joy” and when you get the opportunity to visit, you’ll immediately understand why.  This place is just gorgeous.  I worked out here a few years for the master developer and it was absolutely great going to work everyday and having such a beautiful view.  No matter what mood I woke up in, as soon as I drove on the overpass seeing that deep blue ocean surrounding paradise, all my cares slipped away and I was…happy!

It is home to the elegant and luxurious JW Marriot Ihilani Hotel and Spa (good enough for the Pro Bowlers to stay!), Marriot’s Ko Olina Beach Club-a timeshare, and Ko Olina™ Beach Villas-luxury residential condos, and soon in 2011 Aulani-Disney’s new oceanfront themed resort with timeshares!  It’s world class marina boasts 330 full-service slips, Roy’s Restaurant, Ko Olina™ Wedding Chapel, and Ted Robinson designed championship golf course are more than enough to entice any worldly traveler.

Residential communities include Beach Villas at Ko Olina (Centex Destination Properties), Ko Olina Hillside Villas (CDP), Ko Olina Kai (CDP), Coconut Plantation (Brookfield Homes), Kai Lani (Armstrong Properties), and the Ko Olina Fairway Villas. Just opening this fall of 2011, Disney recently opened it’s first World Class Resort here in Ko Olina called Aulani! This billion dollar timeshare is the first of its kind that integrates Hawaiian Culture programs, amenities, and entertainment that is sure to thrill for all ages. There are spas, pools, and water-slides and you are surrounded by the unrivaled beauty of Ko Olina’s enchanting lagoons. This is a MUST SEE!!
