    Great drone video over the whole resort which gives a good feel for how it will sit in the area.

    Still destruction rather than construction but there's clearly something happening on that land. You can see that the land is very brown over the grass areas and looks very different to the well-kept areas around it.

    offerings include attractions like Aquaventure Waterpark, The Lost Chambers Aquarium and an open-air marine habitat.
    There will also be plenty of dining options, with Atlantis offering everything from casual lounges and bars to high-end restaurants. The resort also promises notable chefs

    So I visited the site yesterday and whilst construction hasn't started there are fences up because they are pulling down the wedding chapel that currently stands on the site.

    Cranes are already at work removing this structure and land is being left unkempt in the area where construction is due to begin soon. This is going to be right next to Disney's Aulani with views over the Honu lagoon next to Disney's which it will share with time share apartments and villas to its south side.

    This is the location close up marked in red is the land shown on the other photos including the current buildings.





    The wedding chapel barried off from the lagoon side


    Cranes on site and a gate left open.





    The extent of the land that is being left ready for construction with Disney Aulani in the background. It's a big plot.
    The grass here is in bad condition compared to the extremely well groomed areas nearby which makes me think it won't be long until they have work starting.

    Jeff Stone, Ko Olina’s master developer who orchestrated the land sale, previously said Atlantis Ko Olina is a roughly $1.5 billion project that could start construction in mid-2017 and be finished two years later.

    This is what Ko Olina looks like now with the space for the new Atlantis construction shown.



    This will be the first Atlantis resort in the United States, along with the brand’s flagship in Dubai, Atlantis, The Palm and the new icon in China, Atlantis, Sanya Hainan which will open in 2017, as well as The Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences in Dubai. Kerzner has plans to continue to grow and develop the Atlantis brand globally.
    Overlooking both the Honu and Kohola Lagoons, Atlantis will offer a sense of discovery, encompassing over 26 acres of excitement and larger than life experiences, revolutionary water play in Aquaventure Waterpark, The Ambassador Lagoon and The Lost Chambers Aquarium and unforgettable dining experiences
    The addition of Atlantis will further position Ko Olina as a premier mixed-use destination offering a sophisticated collection of upscale hotels, luxury resort residences, fine dining, alongside four crescent beach lagoons. Ko Olina, or “Place of Joy,” spans 642 acres on the island of O’ahu that was once a retreat for Hawaiian royalty and features a unique ocean coastline with white-sand beaches, walking trails and classic Hawaiian ambiance. The development also offers the state’s largest private deep-draft marina, world-class golf and sports facilities, and shopping and retail centres.

    If the entire resort does end up being on just that 26 acre plot of land, it will be by far the smallest Atlantis Resort. To put it into perspective, the size of just the Aquaventure Watepark at Atlantis Dubai is about 42 acres - almost double the size of Atlantis Hawaii as a whole. The size of Atlantis Sanya - just the resort tower, the aquarium, and the event space, is about 18 acres.

    The only way I could see Atlantis Hawaii working is:

    - The tower itself being like Atlantis Sanya - only taking up 1-2 acres of land but being very tall
    - Aquaventure Waterpark being very compact and even taking up less space than the already very compact Volcano Bay waterpark being built in Orlando (this would mean the majority of the 26 acres of Atlantis Sanya would be the waterpark)
    - The restaurants, bars, retail boutiques, spa and fitness center, aquarium, and event space all mainly being within the narrow but tall resort tower

    The original location I suspected for the resort is in fact the confirmed location, as shown below by a red pin marker over the future resort's plot of land:
