    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:

    The oceanfront property, located between Kohola Lagoon 1 and Honu Lagoon 2, will be developed to become Atlantis Ko Olina.

    The new resort will cover over 26 acres, offering approximately 800 luxurious guest rooms and suites, 524 residences and a variety of amenities for guests, including restaurants, bars, retail boutiques, a Beach Club, an spa and fitness center, an aquarium, a water park and event space.

    Overlooking both the stunning Honu and Kohola Lagoons, Atlantis will offer a sense of awe-inspiring discovery, encompassing over 26 acres of unparalleled excitement and larger than life experiences, revolutionary water play in Aquaventure Waterpark, The Ambassador Lagoon and The Lost Chambers Aquarium and incredible dining experiences.

    The project seems to have been confirmed:

    Atlantis Resorts is expanding to Hawaii with its first project in the United States located on vacant oceanfront parcels of land near Disney’s Aulani hotel at Ko Olina Resort in West Oahu, the master developer of Ko Olina confirmed to Pacific Business News.
    Developers are planning an Atlantis property at Ko Olina that will be "similar to Atlantis Dubai," according to the statement, and be an "international destination for millennial travelers."

    “We’ve been in discussions with Atlantis, and they have an option on the land next to the Aulani,” Richards said, referring to a vacant beachfront property neighboring the Disney resort at Ko Olina. “I don’t know if it’s going to happen or not, but according to them, it is going to happen.”
    Atlantis Resorts company is working out the final details of a deal to build the resort on a 15-acre parcel of land on the Diamond Head side of Disney's Aulani Resort, sources said.

    Maybe the design of Atlantis Hawaii will be similar to Sanya's design where there's a single tower that takes up less land and the majority of the land is used for the animals/waterpark.
