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! « less

I stumbled a cross the "Spa Royal Hawaiian". The owner Julie Kim, is such a wonderful lady. She recently opened the spa at the Royal Hawaiian Centre in December 2013. The Spa is located on the 3rd floor, just above the Cheesecake Factory. We all (hubby, 17 & 14 year olds) got a 60 minute Lomi Lomi massage. It also... More

I really like this shopping center/area. The first thing that drew me to it was the free Hula show in the evening. There is an outdoor stage & the area is nicely decorated with tiki torches and palm trees. They have a great selection of shops. It's a very upscale atmosphere. They have restaurants which include The Cheesecake Factory. If... More

Excellent shopping center in the center of Waikiki. Plenty of very upscale shops to browse and a very clean food court with a definite Asian character given the food choices. A great place to take a walk especially if you are staying at the Royal Hawaiian, Sheraton Waikiki or Outrigger Waikiki......

So many great shops all on one long strip! We stayed at the Hyatt Place Waikiki Beach so it was about a 10-15 minute walk away which was perfect. There are plenty of buses that travel along that strip as well. There are a few resorts on the opposite side of the street as well and great restaurants. This shopping... More

I read about the cultural programs at this shipping center, and that was the reason for my visit. They were excellent! Many of the stores are high-end (I only shopped at the ABC store), but the food court had some excellent noodle shops. There were some comfy places to sit and relax out of the sun. The first thing we... More

Stunning mall on shopping street in Hawaii, with wide open spaces of lush greenery. There are also complimentary performances from the Polynesian center. They do not last long but are nice to catch. Unfortunately the shops located inside are nothing special. The island coffee inside is always packed.

This is a great place to go. My family and I would walk here every night and look at the shops. There are a lot of choices for food and shopping. They have something for every type of shopper here. They have the souvenir shops here as well.
