Will be staying at Aulani for the first time (family of four, two teenage boys). We have a one bedroom ocean view confirmed. Any suggestions and what request I should put in with member services? I read also some rooms have a luau view? Thanks in advance!

Request the 50 stack as that overlooks the luau and has larger rooms and balconies. They straight balconies instead of the angled balconies. Angled balconies take up part of the villas square footage unlike the straight balconies.

Just before the pandemic, we stayed in room 1277 which was an island view that had the luau view and enjoyed it very much. It saved us lot of points too.

Is that the Ewa tower or does it even matter?

Yes 50 stack is in the Ewa tower. But it does not matter as the stacks are exclusive to their respective towers.
