Disney’s Aulani Resort opened last year, and the $800 million property was the only Hawaii hotel to make Conde Nast Traveler’s 2012 Hot List – one of 121 new hotels and resorts worldwide that made the list.
The honors didn’t stop there, however. Aulani’s Laniwai spa – the only Hawaiian spa featured – made the list of the 35 best new spas in the world. Readers will be able to read about Laniwai spa in the May edition of Conde Nast Traveler magazine.
According to a statement released by Conde Nast, editors visited 172 resorts and hotels to find the winners for their 2012 Hot List. Each property was rated based on a number of things, including amenities, food, atmosphere and service.
