Hawaii is one of the world’s most popular destinations for the wealthy, but the resort of Horseshoe Bay Resort and Spa in Hawaii is drawing a lot of attention this summer for the theme of Polynesian.
In a sign of the times, Horseweb Bay Resort, which is just about halfway down the road from Disneyland in Anaheim, California, has added a theme of the Polynesians.
In addition to a Polynesias theme, guests can take a boat tour around the resort and take in the sunset.
The Polynesia theme was added to the resort in June and is designed to be a family-friendly attraction, with activities like cooking, fishing and dining, as well as an indoor-outdoor area for the family to share.
“Our goal is to make this a family environment and a destination for all ages,” said Krista Ritchie, vice president of communications for Horseport.
“It’s a family oriented resort, with all the things that you expect from a family resort, so we’ve tried to put our families first, but it is our theme, so you can be sure that your guests will have an experience that is family friendly.”
The Polynsia theme is a continuation of Disney’s Polynesiana series of themed resort theme parks in the U.S., which has been going on for about 20 years.
Disney Polynesials in Europe have been in operation for about seven years.
“There are a lot more people coming to Horseworld Bay Resort than there were when it opened in 2010,” said Disney spokeswoman Sarah Nettles.
“We really feel like this is an opportunity to continue to build a long-lasting and successful franchise.”
The resort will not have any Disney products, including merchandise or merchandise accessories.
But Disney Polynsials will have Disney’s latest film and music collection in its parks.
