The Language of Aloha at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa: Kaiaulu

  • Wed, 13 Sep 2017 14:27

Kaiaulu means a trade-wind breeze.

In my last post, I wrote about the ukuna o ka la, or rays of the sun. Now, when things are heating up in the sun in Hawaiʻi, we all cherish the breezes and rain to help us keep cool. Did you know that we have hundreds of words in Hawaiian for wind and rain? That’s because each name changes depending on the location.

When you first walk into Makaʻala, our lobby area at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, you’ll enjoy the trade-wind breeze known as the Kaiaulu. This wind comes from the Waiʻanae mountain range and cools the land heading down towards the sea. It’s almost as if it comes to greet you as you walk through the door. It even brings the smell of our fresh flower lei in with you.

Perhaps in the morning, you will enjoy the light breeze called Moani down by the ocean. It is a soothing accompaniment to the many fitness classes we offer including Beach and Paddleboard Yoga. Needless to say, it goes very well with a quick dip in our inviting lagoon.

Or if you’re up for an adventure, go out and experience the misty rain called Tuahine when you participate in a tour of Manoa valley. This rain provides the magic that makes Manoa valley famous for rainbows. It’s not uncommon to see multiple rainbows at once!

I think at Aulani Resort we are re-defining that old phrase: go wherever the wind may take you. There are so many more stories awaiting you on your next visit!

A hui hou.

Note: In printed materials, Aulani Resort uses the contemporary spelling of Hawaiian words, which includes marks such as the kahako (macron). Because these marks do not often display correctly in electronic formats, including the text of the Disney Parks Blog, we’ve omitted them to ensure clarity.
