On February 1, 1927, The Royal Hawaiian opened as the first luxury property in Waikiki, ushering in a new era of resort travel to the Hawaiian Islands. Set on 14 acres of the fabled Waikiki beachfront on Oahu’s south shore, the resort quickly gained a reputation as a favorite vacation spot for international royalty.
During World War II, The Royal Hawaiian was leased exclusively to the U.S. Navy, but re-opened in 1947 after a large-scale renovation. The Royal Hawaiian quickly regained its standing as an exclusive retreat for Hollywood’s brightest stars, heads of state, and the well-heeled travelers. The Royal Hawaiian has since renovated and rebranded as A Luxury Collection property, taking “The Pink Palace” a step beyond traditional luxury resort expectations.
In 1969 the beautiful high-rise beachfront building was added, creating a hotel within a hotel concept. The new addition is known today as Mailani Tower, featuring all oceanfront rooms with lanais. Separated from the Historic Building by a regal promenade, Mailani Tower also features an exclusive guest lounge with concierge service, continental breakfast with mimosas and evening appetizers with beer/wine daily, reading materials, and other features.
While the resort has consistently been renovated and refreshed, the distinctive architecture and rosey hue remain, as do the elegant details that nod to a storied past.
