Average, except Location

Chicago, Illinois

Stayed at the Royal Hawaiian in Feb. We stayed in the Mailani Tower (high floor) - the room was average; nothing ultra luxury about it; which was disappointing considering the price tag that came with this hotel. Room needs some updating for sure - the balcony was nice; but nothing fancy. Some of the amenities were closed when we were there due to the weather; however, the Royal Hawaiian still charged their “amenities fee”, which was really disappointing. Additionally, the ‘complimentary breakfast and happy hour’ was fairly weak. They ran out of food early in the evenings and that was disappointing, especially for what we paid. As far as the location, it was very good and that was a bonus. The valet staff was super good at the hotel and the ONLY staff members that asked “how our stay was” when we left. The lady handling the check out basically moved me out of the line quickly and never asked our thoughts. We will try other resorts before coming back to the Royal Hawaiian.

What A Vacay!!!

Atlanta, Georgia

This birthday vacay takeover was one for the books! From the moment we hit the airport leaving Atlanta to arriving in beautiful HAWAI'I! The airport is NOT Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson but its nice and clean like the rest of HAWAI'I! I am so in love with this place that I plan to visit again and again. Okay on to the beautiful historically gorgeous hotel with amazing views and beautiful comfortable & spacious rooms. Our views nothing but amazing! We purchased a set of the matching robes as a token of our opulence stay here. The vibe, the staff and concierge was courteous, gracious and pleasant. It is lovely. The Mai Tai bar drinks were great! We sailed, dined, enjoyed the ocean, sunset, sunrise! The fact that our hotel was SMACK in the middle of all the action and located right there at LUXURY ROW was fabulous!

A Royal Luau – A Cultural Journey Through Time

Every Monday, the resort pays homage to the Royal lifestyle by holding an exciting feast event. Starting on the sweeping main lawn, guests slowly make their way to the sacred Helumoa grounds before enjoying a feast of varied flavours and intriguing scents. Laced with rich dance and music, this dinner show provides a glimpse into the heritage and history of this Island nation and is the only dinner show in Waikiki set on the oceanfront.

Swimming Pool

Outdoor Pool

The resort's private pool is a stylish venue for either cooling down or soaking up the sunshine. Heated yet using soft saltwater for a purer swim, guests can opt for a payable Cabana for an extra special experience or just lounge on one of the many chairs.

Abhasa Spa Waikiki

This exquisite spa centre provides a much needed respite from working life and offers a range of relaxing treatments and services.
