The Royal Hawaiian, A Luxury Collection Resort 

Spectacularly pink and completely eye-catching. Set in acres of sprawling coconut groves and perched on a scenic stretch of Waikiki beach, The Royal Hawaiian has become something of a luxury icon. Did we mention, it’s pink?

Distinct and undeniably recognisable amongst its neighbours, you can see why it’s known as ‘The pink palace of the Pacific’. Depending on what you fancy, step out one way onto sandy shores or the other onto popular Kalakaua Avenue: the main shopping scene in Waikiki. The vibrant exterior isn’t to everyone’s taste but step inside to a tropical oasis of a bygone era. Enjoy the resort's famous banana nut bread from your room, observing leafy views of the central corridor or elevated ocean vistas. Nostalgia and history is part of the experience, so take it all in. Like many Waikiki resorts, the hotel has arguably outgrown its pool, but who needs it when you’re steps from a cooling dunk in the Pacific? With Pearl Harbour and Diamond Head just twenty minutes by car and Kapiolani Park less than ten, there will be plenty nearby to keep you busy if you tire of shopping sprees and spa treatments.

Locally Paid Fees & Taxes: Expect to pay approximately $50 per room per night for hotel resort fees and local taxes.

Historic yet modern. Think Victorian-era design combined with palm trees and hula lessons. Centrally located and equidistant from the parks that book-end Waikiki beach, Moana Surfrider displays a certain style on these shorelines you may not find at some of its neighbours.

Beachfront setting, contemporary design with all the Hawaiian trimmings and located just minutes away from oodles of bars and restaurants on Kalakaua Ave; you can see why Outrigger Reef is high on our hitlist.

A hidden oasis upstairs amidst the buzz of Waikiki. Travel up the escalators into chic, fresh design that still pays homage to its Hawaiian roots, located just a five minute walk to the famed sands of Waikiki beach.

With its modern Hawaiian decor and hip hospitality Surfack has the social vibe of an upscale hostel; full of people who still travel with backpacks, but not so many shoestrings.
