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!

If luxury shopping is on your list, this is the place. Fendi, Jimmy Choo, Kate Spade, Hermes, Ferragamo, way more. There are also more conventional mall-type stores and a variety of less exorbitant restaurants than you will find down the block on Waikiki. On adjacent Kalakaua Avenue you will find the rest of the world-class brands: Tiffany, Chanel, Coach, but... More

Lots of high end stores and a few for the regular folks like Forever 21 and Apple. But this outdoor mall spans for many blocks all along Waikiki and even in front of the famous Royal Hawaiian. The free entertainment is good and the decor for the seasons is pretty. Just seems out of place along a beach front area.

The center is very beautiful and uniquely made. It's also very close to the beach. I think it spans about three blocks and three floors so you'll need plenty of time to cover it all. The only downfall for me was the large number of tourists. In fact, it was almost overwhelming. Parking can be high, so make sure to... More

We are staying at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel so the shopping center is right next to our hotel which is extremely convenient. Last night we discovered the food court upstairs which gives us all kinds of affordable options for eating here in very expensive Honolulu. There are a variety of stores as well as the obligatory ABC which are literally... More

A beautiful shopping center with its open air design, neat resting areas with lounge chairs and are decorated with tropical plants, as well as evening Hawaiian shows at the Royal Grove...! A good selection of shops, mainly in the middle to high price range. If you like top designer clothing and high-quality souvenir-worthy goods with Hawaiian characteristics, this mall is... More

This three level mall, architecturally, is quite nice; open, easy to navigate, well labeled. It is quite clean and the people working at the mall are friendly and courteous. The shops range from the very high end to suburban mall quality stores. In other words, all the businesses here are good. However, be warned, this area is targeted for Japanese... More

The Royal Hawaiian Center on Kalakaua avenue runs along 4-5 city blocks. It includes numerous designer shops, a number of Hawaiian boutiques, an excellent ABC store, some upscale restaurants, and an inviting food court. The food court is great for a casual lunch or dinner. Apple has a large store there. More designers are coming soon. Le SportSac has a... More

i was so impressed with the beautiful open air Royal Hawaiian Shopping center..who knew that after 30 years of not traveling to Honolulu that I would find all these wonderful high end luxury shops lining the main blvd just off of Waikiki. Beautiful restaurants, and luxury stores with a unique style. I also enjoyed the Island Vintage shaved ice on... More

It's the centre of attraction in the main part of Waikiki. Not to be missed. The shops are ever evolving. Every time we go there is something new to see. The mini refurb it underwent last year, is now finished and looks great. Very serene and tranquil inside as you slowly amble along taking in all the shops. The majority... More
