This is by far my favorite hotel in Hawaii, Oahu. The Royal Hawaiian has refreshed its grandeur with a multimillion-dollar transformation, taking “The Pink Palace” a step beyond traditional luxury resort expectations. The redesign has revitalized the entire property, conjuring a decidedly chic and modern atmosphere that is still captivatingly Hawaiian, making this Waikiki’s finest luxury resort.
The Royal Hawaiian is a playground for international royalty, Hollywood elite, and heads of state, this legendary pink-hued retreat is ushering in a new era of Hawaiian-style luxury on Oahu’s golden Waikiki Beach with striking décor and unmatched service.
I went there with my parents and we had a wonderful time. My mom and I really felt like princesses. From the moment you arrive, to the manager’s welcoming Mai-Tai / Ukelele-Hula dancing party, to the room service, to the restaurant experience – everything is first class.
BUT, be careful when ordering a Mai-Tai – they are VERY strong. After one Mai-Tai I was dancing Hula in front of our hotel suite in a traditional costume. Yep, this one is definitely on my list of my most embarassing moments and I never ever drank a Mai-Tai again.
