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!

Lunch Sunday afternoon beachside in a lavish relaxed setting. The food, setting and service was excellent. In a very exclusive setting, the staff provided warm, friendly and relaxed service. Loved it!

The shopping center is nice and has high end stores, but I was surprised to see it right along the waterfront and The Royal Hawaiian. This part of Hawaii did not look like I expected, but it was nice to be so close to shopping and dining locations.

I think I could of spent the whole day shopping here. They have great places to eat and fun shops. They had little girls doing the hula dance and that made it very entertaining.

Great shopping and dining that covers around three blocks and three levels...lots of high-end designer stores and a few cheaper chain stores for good measure. The Central food court is great - lots of Hawaiian and Asian food choices, and well-priced. The only thing it lacks is somewhere to buy books and magazines... A newsagents would be a great addition.... More

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
