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

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.

Great shopping combined with some really fun places to eat, GREAT coffee places here too, other thant the STAR place. Nice variety of stores, some local stores not found anywhere else, and definitely some chain stores. It is a beautifully maintained shopping center with a food court too. Don't miss the Lesportsac store, the Hawaiian Flip-Ahs store (flip flops... definitely... More

The Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center has undergone extensive renovations in recent years, and is now a world class shopping Center right in the heart of Waikiki on the beach-side of Kalakaua Avenue. It is a real pleasure to walk around and through this Center which connects with some of the leading Hotels such as the Royal Hawaiian Hotel (the 'PinkPalace'... More

This is another shopping area on Kalakaua with a small difference..They have a food court on the 2nd floor where if you have a group, each person can get what they want and still have room to sit and eat together. Kenny's Hawaiian Express, there's a Panda Express, pizza, Subway's, Sbarro Italian Eatery and Mahaloha Burgers were good. It was... More

You will quickly find that all the same stores are in all the different malls, so go to the mall or store most convenient for you and you won't be missing out on much. This is a nice mall to walk through if the weather outside isn't to your liking, but there is nothing here that you can't find elsewhere... More
