One of our favorite things at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa is the colorful lagoon that spreads 3,800 square feet and lies right in the middle of the Waikolohe Valley pool area of the resort. Rainbow Reef is home to thousands of tropical fish you can swim with in a private and calm setting. In fact, it’s the only private snorkeling lagoon in the entire island of O’ahu! It’s one of our favorite things to do at the Aulani Resort, and even provides inspiration for cute, casual summer outfits!
You can’t miss the numerous butterflyfish found in Rainbow Reef. They’re yellow with diagonal stripes, and inspired this chic summer look.
Blue tangs are easy to spot in Rainbow Reef because of their bright blue color and their familiarity to us Disney fans. Yes, this is one of the few opportunities you may have to swim up-close with Dory. This outfit is inspired by our friendly and forgetful fish, and makes for the perfect DisneyBound at the Aulani Resort.
There were several kinds of fish we noticed with a bold black and white stripe that stood out against the coral reef and inspired this statement look. And if you’re not much of a snorkeler–don’t worry–you can still enjoy the lagoon from the underwater viewing area.
