The 310,000-sq.-ft. Royal Hawaiian Center sits on land once known as Helumoa, the home of Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop in the 1870s and 1880s. It’s highlighted by the 33,000-square-foot Royal Grove, one of the largest open green spaces in Waikiki. Throughout the day, the event-friendly area showcases entertainment and cultural activities, including arts of Hawaiian quilting, lomilomi massage, ukulele playing, hula dancing, lei making and kapa cloth making. No worries if you’ve been at the beach and are covered with sand. That’s the case with most visitors!

I don't see much mentioned about this area, however, I recommend a stroll through here. If you are a shopper it is a must see! It is well laid out and it is a peaceful stroll. The Thai restaurant there is amazing. It is where many people park to see the Magic of Polynesian show. You can even pick up... More

It is quite eye catching due to the lush garden in the center. Very nice landscaped. And of course they have their stage with some show going on to keep your attention. It's very interesting. Oh, they have their expensive shops and restaurants just waiting for you. You could pass on the shops and just stop by to see the... More

This was the best show we have seen in along time. Impersonators were excellent. They had Celine Dion Elvis and Michael Jackson. They were all really good. They also had a fire dancer he didn't make one mistake. Plus the hula dancers were very good as well.

It is a four floor multi-level and a 3 building mall, which contains over 310,000 sq. ft.and well over 110 stores. The restaurants range from typical mall food-court restaurants to high-end restaurants. There are a lot of designer stores... More

With this classic luxury hotel, one expects great service, especially for the prices. I called ahead to put an extra name on my reservation. My partner was not allowed in the room and was stuck in the lobby waiting for my delayed arrival until 1:30am. They did nothing to help him. Upon check-in, we watched all other guests be given...
