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!

Lots of expensive shops, but the cafeteria type eating area had a variety of economical eating places. There were also free activities and a couple of free shows on the stage on the ground floor including hula dancers and snippets from the Legends Rock a Hula Show.

I don't think I managed to buy anything in this mall as the shops are too high end for me. It is a lovely mall with a great seating area.

Lots of upscale shopping in this part of town, and this mall is no exception. However, even if you aren't interested in that, you can window shop, and this is a nice place to walk if you want a change of scenery or you need to duck out of the rain. However, aside from the design of the mall (which... More

This is almost the typical upscale shopping experience, but in it hides a little gem. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday there is a free lei making event at 1p. TIP : Get there early as there are only so many seats for this. Its completely free and when you're done making it, its yours to wear around the rest of the... More

Pushy sales people and high end shops that cater to the Japanese visitors. As my reviews in the past regarding this place I see nothing of value here, in other words NOT WORTH THE VISIT! The food court is even worse... Over crowded mediocre food with tons and tons... did I mention tons of pushy and rude visitors with no... More

A very busy yet relaxed wander through the centre made easier and more enjoyable when we saw some ladies dancing traditional dances.

My favorite shopping center in Honolulu. Open air mall with lots of great shops and high-end stores. Free lei making class every day for first time lei makers.

You'll find all the prestigious biggies here: Hermes, Harry Winston, Ferragamo, etc. This is an amazing collection of world-class retail to indulge a dose of "retail therapy". There are also several nice eateries as well. Don't miss the Golf Shop up on the 3rd floor. It has an eye-popping selection of Scotty Cameron putters, and golf bags!

Many different experiences such as cultural show, mock villages, chiefs lau and a 'market place'. Be sure to book before you go to ensure spaces in the experiences you want to see.
