You got the view we were hoping to get!! Now I wish I had also requested "room number ending in ___" too.

Thanks for the photos, SeaPic and Rik! I've added your villas to the list in Post #1

Does that hand rail at the infinity pool constitute a "Hidden Aulani?"

That's a bummer you didn't get your room request Annie. I remember you had concerns about adding too much info to the room request, but I thought adding the room ending in ..xx pretty much ensured they knew exactly where you wanted to be. When we got our rooms, it was not exactly the room ending #'s I requested, but it was still in that same area. Hopefully you will get it next time if you book IV.

The very first thread will give you all the info you need to decide a room requests
For IV, seems most opt for a high floor in the long wing of the Ewa Tower over looking the Halawai Lawn.

Great thread and really useful information, thanks!

I've got an ocean view dedicated 2br reserved for next April and in reading this thread I notice that there are some 2br with differing balconies. Some have two short balconies and others have a single, longer balcony, is that correct? If so, are the longer balconies located in a certain building? In looking at the pix on this thread I'm thinking those longer balcony units are located in the short portion of the newer Ewa building, is that correct?

All the balconies in the Waianae Building are angled, or shortened. The Ewa Building Long Wing also has angled balconies. The Ewa Building Short Wing and the Ewa Building Phase 1 have non-angled balconies, which are long, continuous balconies. BTW, all grand villas at Aulani have non-angled balconies.

So, for a 2br with angled balconies what is the configuration: one balcony off the LR, master and 2nd br?

We stayed in a 2bdr with angled balconies. There was a balcony off the master and a shared balcony between the LR and 2nd bedroom.

Thanks! I know I'll probably spend more time on the balcony then the rest of the family combined so as long as it fits me comfortably and has a place to rest my morning coffee and afternoon cocktail the angled arrangement should be just fine!

Here are a couple of pictures from our lanai of our pool view studio, room #272. We had requested a high floor, so didn't feel that the second floor granted our request. But we were able to get right into the room at check-in (11am). After being in the room a day or two, we came to really enjoy the location! We were just one floor up from the pool deck, one down from the lobby, and just two doors down from the elevators (stairs). So it was super easy to get to our room from anywhere we were or wanted to go! We didn't use the elevators all week!
