Royal Hawaiian Hotel

Waikiki Sheraton Royal Hawaiian Photo

The flamingo-pink oasis of luxury, the Royal Hawaiian Hotel is hidden among the blooming tropical gardens surrounded by concrete jungles of the town of Waikiki. Originally, Captain William Matson built the Royal Hawaiian Hotel to accommodate passengers from the Matson Steamship Company’s luxury cruise ship. Inspired by a popular silent screen star Rudolph Valentino, the "Pink Place" was opened in 1927 on the site where Queen Kaahumanu had had her summer palace.

Since that time the hotel has been the icon of luxury and romance. The Royal Hawaiian hotel, which is naturally painted pink, has become notorious as the playground for the rich and famous and even in the time of Depression it attracted royalty, presidents and other celebrities to its opulent accommodations.

To enter the hotel you should pass the lush gardens with the spectacular Banyan tree, before getting into the black terrazzo-marble lobby decorated with hand woven pink carpets and giant floral arrangements. But the most beautiful lobby is not the one where you check-in. If you fallow the long hallway towards the sea you will get into an open breezeway with arches and columns of grand style. It is the very heart of the hotel overlooking the Diamond Head in the background.

In the Historic Wing the interior features rosewood doors carved in the Philippines, four-poster canopy beds, flowered wallpaper and French provincial furniture of that period. All rooms are air-conditioned and have remote-control TVs, refrigerators, electronic safes and computer hookups on telephones for laptop computers. The rooms in the original sector have been completely renovated and have preserved its famous pink motif but have become slightly more pastel. They feature marble tile bathroom, a brass butler and louvered drawers. The tall ceilings are very elegant with molded plaster cornices.

It’s a custom in the hotel to treat guests to banana bread and a daily newspaper on request. For the early morning check-ins or late night check-outs there is a Hospitality Suite with complementary shower facilities.

Many guests prefer the Royal Tower wing because of the gorgeous ocean view out of its windows and generally larger bathrooms. From the balcony of most of the rooms you can look down onto the swimming pool, the beach, palm trees and Diamond Head in the distance.

Sheraton Royal Hawaiian Waikiki Beach

Drinks and entertainments are provided daily at the hotel’s famous Mai Tai Bar. The mai tai is also something of the past time. The atmosphere of the mai tai will take you back to the times of the ‘40s. Established by Oakland’s Vic Bergeron for his Trader Vic’s restaurants, originally it served only aged rum, lime juice, and orange liqueur. But mai tais have changed since and now some of them feature exotic elaborate cocktails.

The Royal Hawaiian boast stunning ocean views and overlooks Waikki Beach, a two-mile stretch of warm, golden sand. Don’t leave Waikki until you have walked the length of this strand. You may start you walk from the lagoons in front of the Hilton Hawaiian Village and walk on down to the Natatorium War Memorium. From the Hilton end the beach narrows when you walk towards the Diamand Head, passing by the Reef Hotel and the prestigious Halekulani Hotel and the Royal Hawaiian Hotel with magnificent view from the beach. And then comes the last beachfront hotel on this end of the beach, "The First Lady" of Waikki - Sheraton Moana Surf Rider. Then you walk past Kuhio Beach Park which is always full of life with many vendors selling everything you may need when on vacation.

Having passed it you step into quieter parts of the beach, with large lawns and giant trees and the Kapiolani Beach Park, sprawling in the background and terrific for swimming and sunbathing. The Waikki Aquarium is ahead and then comes beautiful and ghostly Natatorium War Memorium, built in 1927 to commemorate men and women who fought World War I.

With reliable waves almost all year round, Waikki Beach is a nice place for those tourists who have just started mastering the art of windsurfing. Waikki’s Beach Boys became famous in the 1930s, when they took charge of the beach, the waves and the fun. Being licensed lifeguards, Beach Boys still give lessons for the amateur surfers.
