The Royal Hawaiian
The venerable “Pink Palace of the Pacific” emerged from renovation in 2009 still proudly pink. Newly “coral” pink, to be exact—the Royal Hawaiian hotel’s original color when it was built 82 years ago. Architectural flourishes present when the iconic oceanfront Waikiki property first opened were restored, and other nostalgic accents maintained, while modernizing the Royal for a new breed of luxury traveler. The unparalleled view of Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach while enjoying a beachside mai tai? Wonderfully unchanged.
