    I was recently in Hawaii and while visiting the Wyndham outrigger lobby in Waikiki to take a look I over heard a conversation betw a Wyndham timeshare sales person and a guest.



    Wyndham: Do you know if you buy Wyndham you can book directly Aulani? Its a new agreement we have. Its called_______ (don't remember. Was too fast. I froze when he said agreement and Aulani..lol)


    Guest: Oh really.. sounds great. I will see you tomorrow in the presentation .



    I am puzzle since!!!??? is there anything new betw wyndham and Aulani to exchange points for booking? ( No RCI mentioned, the sales person said something else )

    not a chance.

    Maybe through RCI portal IF, and that is a big IF, you ever see any out there.

    Rumor has it that Wyndham sales weasels sometimes stretch the truth or outright lie in order to make a sale. I'm just saying. . .

    Not just a big if, a whopping huge if. I wouldn't expect to get Aulani unless you own DVC and even then it wouldn't surprise me if you have to plan ahead and search to get it.

    Anyone ever get Aulani through RCI or know anyone who did?

    There were a few reports of a handful of units in 2014 and again in 2016, but not many.

    It's certainly come up a handful of times as an OGS match on the sightings board, and even some 2BR after all of the Orlando DVC exchanges moved exclusively to 1BR. But still rare.

    I had gotten two weeks last year at Aulani, 2BR through RCI. I think there were a few others who got a week here and there last year, but haven't seen any since and I have a standing OGS for it, as i'd like to get back. So not impossible, but very rare.

    There were units at one time that were deposited with a Wyndham preference over at least HGVC, but I think it's only happened a few times. If you search the sightings board for threads started by me with Aulani, you'll see one such example.

    But, certainly rare and I would never count on it.

    I own DVC and I just stay in Aulani for 1 week and 1 week in Hilton wakikian. The sales person said some initials and a number (for example hpr31) agreement betw Wyndham and Aulani (?) I guess that's how they got this guest to go to the timeshare appointment. I got excited for a minute when I heard that..lol
