Iconic in pink on the refreshing shores of Waikiki, the Royal Hawaiian resort has one of the finest wellness offerings in the world.

Especially at their Abhasa Waikiki Spa. Nestled in a tropical Royal Grove Courtyard, guests are pampered in private garden cabanas with the fragrance of wild ginger under the shade of sun-kissed coconut fronds. Wellness offerings from their therapists include local Lomi Lomi and traditional massages, tropical facials, organic body-wraps and cocoons, waxing, yoga, plus nail and hair salon grooming. 

Abhasa means “Illusion” in Sanskrit and is a crowning touch of the Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort. 

For further inspiration, relaxation and exercise their Malulani Pool and Helumoa Playground offer fun for all. Dive into the pool for soothing laps, or take jog on the inviting sands of Waikiki—and certainly splash in the surf to get your “happy time” endorphins enlivened. For keeping the energy up, their restaurants serve up delicious and nutritious seafood, organic produce, and super fruit juices and shakes. 

Their 528 rooms offer total tranquility to relax and inspire the mind and body. Their Mailani Tower embodies the essence of a “Wahi Pana” or celebrated place in Hawaiian. All come with an intimate lanai for views of the Pacific Ocean. 

The Historic Wing of the hotel features rooms with alluring dark wood, chic bedding with boudoir pillows and inviting aura of decor with fuchsia pink and a platinum silver headboard. 

Their four Prestigious Suites are bar none slices of heaven. Their Ali’i Suite feature sweeping views of Diamond Head to Barber’s Point. The Queen Ka’ahumanu Suite is distinguished with classic taste and style. The Kamehameha Suite with ocean view is unique with graphic kapa patterns and artwork from Hawai‘i and Polynesia. Lastly, their Royal Hawaiian suite looks out onto the wonder of Waikiki beach with modern amenities.
