Ko Olina, one of Oahu’s truly hidden secrets, has just recently begun to attract the attention of developers of Ewa real estate. A true island paradise, the Ko Olina area consists of a number of private plots of real estate, a hotel resort, vacation homes, a marina and harbor, and some of the best golfing in the state. The JW Marriott Ihilani Resort & Spa is the highlight of area and provides a world class luxury resort experience that is mixed with the true spirit of island hospitality. The hotel features 387 guest rooms and 36 suites, many offering spectacular ocean views and panoramic views of the crystal blue lagoons that are exclusively for hotel guests. The Marriott Beach Club is responsible for the operation of the timeshare units that are in facilities completely separate from the hotel.
The resort has partnered with the National Football League to sponsor all players, staff, and their families for the annual Pro Bowl held at Aloha Stadium. Large areas are devoted to Pro Bowl activities and a practice field is even painted and leveled for players’ use prior to the big day. A number of community events are also hosted by the NFL at the resort during the week leading up to the game.
