From the moment you receive your welcome lei upon entry to the iconic Royal Hawaiian hotel, known as the “pink palace of the Pacific”, you will feel that you have landed in paradise. You’re sure to have a perfect tropical destination wedding, at a legendary hotel built in the 1920’s, and located just steps away from Waikiki beach and all of its best shopping and dining. Beyond the welcome cocktails, daily hula lessons, and nightly turndown treats, you will find thoughtful design for your wedding ceremony that will draw upon the surrounding Hawaiian culture and the beauty of Oahu’s southeast coast.
Gorgeous historic wings and the pink art deco architecture will make for great wedding photo opportunities.
Considered one of the most iconic hotels in all of Hawaii (and second oldest), you’ll undoubtedly be given the royal treatment at what is often considered the most luxurious hotel in Waikiki.

“Mai Tai’s at sunset. Nothing better! Best patio on the beach in Waikiki. The drinks are awesome and the atmosphere is superb. I have been coming back here for over 35 years. It is a must do each time I visit. The patio has amazing views of Diamond Head and the ocean breeze is always lovely. Hawaiian music and hula dancing is just right. The hotel lobby is an experience all its own. A place to sit and rest from the usual frenetic Waikiki pace.” – Kate W. 9/17
“Breakfast was a bit pricey, but very delicious. We did the breakfast buffet, and it came with a choice of entree, which is nice, though unneeded with a buffet and probably contributed to the pricey-ness. I would have liked more options at the buffet, but everything they did have was fantastic. Worth trying once if you are in the area.” – Kurt V. 9/17
“Great hotel. It is located right on the beach with a spacious swimming pool within walking distance of it. The staff was very accommodating to our needs. It is conveniently located near popular shops and restaurants. I would definitely stay again.” – Rashaan H. 8/17
