“Pink Palace” Delights, Family Fun at The Royal Hawaiian in Waikiki
My six year old daughter was thrilled to stay at the â€˜Pink Palaceâ€™, the Royal Hawaiian Hotel on Waikiki, and by the way, so were we!!Â After having tea & enjoying the gardens with her mother two years ago, she has been begging to stay, so what a great surprise!
So, finally, here she was, living the life of a Princess, though she told me to stop calling her â€˜Your Royal Highnessâ€™.Â The Royal Hawaiian Hotel is a delightful palace, more like your residence than a hotel, with beautiful architecture, furnishings & wonderful staff . My nine year old son was more than thrilled when checking in, as he was spoken to by his name. He said â€˜This is the life!Â Itâ€™s like in the movies.â€Â We definitely recommend the Ocean Royal Beach Tower & sumptuous Royal Beach Club with its breath-taking views of the beach, sparkling ocean & iconic Diamond Head.Â Newly renovated, the hotel is beautiful, spic & span with luxury from top to bottom. The beds are oh-so-comfy with soft, feel good high-thread count sheets, snuggly down pillows & the best pull-up-around you comforters.Â In addition to the relaxing â€œPink Palaceâ€™ pool, there is the extravaganze pool, the Helumoa Playground, with water slide, waterways & two whirlpools the children (and adults) will want to enjoy. Lounge chairs in the pool were our favorites, particularly for lunch with just right mai tais. Waikiki is a also great place for paddle boarding & maybe some surfing.Â Barney, one of Waikikiâ€™s famous Beach Boys was as friendly as you could ever wish.Â In the mornings, we woke to yummy & I mean yummy continental breakfasts with soft, flaky chocolate croissants, tasty baguettes, fruit & fresh coffee.Â How good was everything?Â We changed our flights so we could stay another night. Frankly, we donâ€™t care if we ever stay at a different hotel on Waikiki ever again.
Lucky we live Hawaiâ€™i! When you live in Hawaiâ€™i, you easily can have a wonderful get-away by heading to any number of incredible resorts for a few nights on a neighbor island as we did, or on your island.Â No long flights.Â You are here, living the life that only is Hawaiâ€™i.Â And with kamaaina savings, it is even more valuable.Â Hawaiâ€™i just is the â€˜Itâ€™ place to be!
