Finally stayed in one of our "bucket list " hotels. The Pink coloured Royal Hawaiian on Waikiki Beach. Paid the premium to have beach front room in this iconic hotel.

We absolutely loved our recent visit to the Royal Hawaiian, fondly known as the Pink Palace. One of Waikiki's very first luxury hotels built nearly 100 years ago, the Royal Hawaiian is classy, elegant, but definitely not stuffy or overdone. We stayed in the newer tower section with an ocean view room and a balcony and loved it. The building...

Stayed here for 2 nights, just for a taste of luxury after staying at a hostel. Incredible experience, wonderful rooms, and amazing beach front. Might not be value for money, but certainly worth trying for a night or two!

A beautiful hotel and the grounds are excellent, right at the heart of waikiki and on the beach. Although we didn't booked an ocean view room, we still had a really pretty garden with a good enough view of the ocean. They also gave me a goodie bag filled with their own baked goods.
