    TOO RICH FOR ME
    Very easy walk through. Sadly nearly all the shops were very high end and catering for the wealthy (not me!) There is a food court for cheap eats although the range is less than last time that we visited. They do have lovely decorations at Xmas time

    You may find something you like in this center
    Amazing place with various shopping and dining options with relaxing atmosphere for strolling. Lighting and decorations at night (we were there around Christmas time) was also impressively beautiful. We visited Poke Waikiki, Korean BBQ, and the ice cream places couple times. Delicious and affordable.

    Upscale Shopping Mall Near Waikiki
    Upscale 2 story shopping mall near Waikiki on Kalakaua Avenue. No inexpensive shopping here. Nice enough to wander through and window shop. Found a nice gelato place just outside the northeast entrance.

    Very nice mall with a little bit of everything
    This is a good mall for tourist. Lots of shopping, many restaurants,and of course an ABC store. Whether you forgot your sunscreen, wanna buy Hawaiian cookies for a gift or dying for some of the best sushi you’ve ever had… this is your place. The Hawaiian ice here is OK not the best but is decent.

    Beautiful at Night, Support Local Artists
    Most of the stores here are high end places that you can basically find in any major city in the world (think Hermes, Fendi, etc.). However, there are a few shops here that sell only local artists creations. I would recommend going here for that reason alone! It is also a good spot to get traditional shave ice and admire the light decorated palm trees.

    Waikiki Shopping Mall
    The Royal Hawaiian Centre is a three storey shopping mall that's immediately outside the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, and spreads three blocks along Kalakaua Avenue. The top two levels, with lesser foot traffic, have some shops and several eateries ranging in type from food court style up to fine dining. The ground floor has a mixture of chain and specialty shops, but importantly also a concise range of the very high-end designer stores. This mall is an important part of the Waikiki experience, and it's also very convenient for people who are staying at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel.

Stay away from the Tory Burch store at this location. the store manager Alana Yokoji is a terrible sales person.
We bought two bags in 3 days at this location. When the sales associate mentioned there is a discount available for the 2nd purchase. Alana was unwilling to help us, she claimed it was online only discount and they cannot apply the discount because we didn't provide email. How come a sales person constantly find excuses and blame the customer for not getting the best deal? And she also assumes it is the customers responsibility to provide emails for further promotion. this attitude pisses us off. Why would a customer buy anything from a sales that doesn't work for the customer's best interest?
I don't understand why such an incapable person will appear on the store manager position. this really ruins the brand image of Tory Burch.

The Royal Hawaiian Food Court is impeccably clean. In order to sit down and eat, you need proof of vaccination and/or negative Covid-19 test within the time period. The entire area is roped off.

Showed our vaccination card and received a SAFE ACCESS OAHU sticker to enter and exit. Two ladies were constantly wiping tables off. I watched them do the same table twice. All the food establishments were adhering to the Hawaiian Covid protocols.

The centre extends to 3 floors and comprises a real mix of retailers and restaurants. The restaurants vary from a food court including Subway and Panda Express thru The Cheesecake Factory to fine dining in Wolfgangs Steakhouse. So something for everyone. The retailers are mainly upmarket and include The Apple Store. It has lovely open spaces throughout and especially at the rear where it leads to The Sheraton. It is very central on the main road In Waikiki. Well worth a visit.

This is a very pretty indoor/outdoor mall. If the stores were not just a bunch of high end chain stores but local shops this would be a perfect place to visit, but unless you are planning to spend like a high-roller, you'll be window shopping. The food is a mix of chains (skip) and local places.

The neat thing which bumps this up from 3 to 4 is the cultural events calendar which include Hulu and Lei-Making classes.

It has pretty landscaping too.

My friend and I found ourselves wandering down these sidewalks quite often since we were staying in a nearby hotel. The shops ranged from expensive boutiques to drug store type shops. The foliage was beautiful and the path eventually led to Waikiki beach. I loved that there were bars and restaurants in this area too. Every path led to a different adventure.

We visited the Royal Haiwaiian Center several times during our stay in Waikiki.

Its attached to the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, the second oldest luxury hotel in the area. Its not hard to miss as its coloured pink and next door to the oldest hotel in Waikiki which is the Westin Moana Surfrider.

The mall is a quiet expansive mall with lots of greenery surrounding.

We enjoyed a meal there at Noi Thai Restaurant

The free cultural activities are great. We did the hula lesson and show as a group and it was really fun. There are shops as well. We went to the bakery and it was great. We had our bachelorette party here and it was a great choice. We got there early for the class sign-up and it was good that we did since it was pretty crowded. The lesson was fun and informative. Great to learn about the dance and language.
