If you go to Hawaii a number of times in your lifetime, be sure to stay at The Royal Hawaiian at least once. At the luxury end of accommodation, the hotel was recently renovated and looks magnificent.
We stayed in a garden room and whilst at the lower end of rooms in the hotel, it still felt like a totally indulgent stay. Situated at the quieter end of Waikiki beach, you'll be given your own spot on the beach and feel like a bit of a celebrity (even if only for a couple of days!).
At night there are great Mai Tai's to be had at the bar whilst you watch the sun set. I even got to sit next to Tim Robbins whilst I enjoyed my drink one night.
Beautifully designed and decorated. One of the best hotels with history I have had the pleasure of staying in.
