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!

Not only are there lots of stores to shop at, there's Cheesecake Factory, too bad the wait time is almost always an hour. I just recently went to the Royal Hawaiian Shooting Club. Interesting location for it but it works. I have a better understanding for gun safety and am confident in using one if I need to defend myself.

My family was lucky enough to catch the Friday evening musical and hula performance in The Grove at the Royal Hawaiian Center. We found the performances to be most entertaining and the commentary of the speaker gave me a newfound appreciation for the preservation of original Hawaiian culture.

The mall is one of the largest outdoor malls I have seen. It has three floors and spans several blocks. Lots of varied shops from high end to everyday, affordable merchandise. As a single, female traveler I always look for what I consider safe places. I felt safe while shopping at this mall. I saw several security guards, there were... More

This is a huge mall, spanning for a couple of blocks. There are lots of lovely shops and restaurants, and it's surprisingly clean for an outdoor mall in a beach town. I got some great souvenirs here, and nice meals, too!
