Hotel Description

Long before Waikiki Beach became the buzzing metropolis that it is, a fantastic pink stucco Moorish-style palace was erected on these famous shores. Now entering its tenth decade, the Royal Hawaiian Hotel offers a taste of a bygone era in Honolulu’s history, a trip back in time to the days when a trip to Hawaii was the last word in far-flung tropical adventure.

It’s fresh off a renovation that’s brought the guest rooms up to date while leaving public spaces as elegant as they were in the Twenties, which means that while the atmosphere is still transformative, the comforts are as familiar as can be. The rooms in the Mailani Tower are necessarily a bit more on the contemporary side, while those in the Historic Building dive a little deeper into the hotel’s stylistic heritage — and no matter which style you prefer, they’re five-star through and through.

Same goes for the rest of the Royal Hawaiian’s facilities. The Abhasa Spa’s treatment cabins are scattered throughout a lush garden, the pool is fringed with private cabanas, and the restaurants range from top-shelf fine dining to a bakery serving Hawaiian twists on traditional pastries. And you’ve got all the attractions of the Pacific Ocean at your feet as well, from stand-up paddling and surfing lessons to sailing excursions and submarine tours.
