About The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort, Waikiki

This ‘Pink Palace of the Pacific’ is an iconic resort located on the sands of central Waikiki, within 10 acres of coconut groves. The Royal Hawaiian has recently celebrated 90 years of providing an elegant and enjoyable retreat for travellers to this beautiful part of the world and is an excellent choice for a restful break.

More About The Royal Hawaiian

The hotel occupies a prime position beside the beach so guests have a great choice of beach and water activities such as catamaran cruises, parasailing, surfing, snorkelling or simply taking it easy and soaking up the warm sun. Daily cultural activities are also available such as floral lei making and traditional Lauhala bracelet making.

There are two beautiful pools – the quiet Malulani Pool and the Helumoa Playground (shared with Sheraton Wakiki) which is perfect for children and families. The Helumoa Playground features a 70 foot long waterslide, two whirlpool spas and an interactive fountain area for kids – great fun!

Dining is a delight with the Royal Hawaiian chefs showcasing the best locally grown and sourced ingredients on offer. The seafront Azure restaurant is the perfect venue for a romantic meal for two.

When it’s time to completely indulge and relax, the Abhasa Spa will meet all your needs with a variety of treatments available including massages, facials, body wraps and nail and hair salon services.
