Discover Mailani Tower at The Royal Hawaiian Resort


Welcome to Mailani

Experience A Personalized Pre-Arrival
Mailani is a Hawaiian word meaning “treated in a royal manner.” The name Mailani describes the essence of this Wahi Pana (this celebrated place). Mailani brings to mind our Royalty whose footprints we walk alongside today – Whose presence can be felt with the wafting fragrance of the ginger, the soft sway of the coconut fronds in the late night, and the soft song of the sea caressing the sand.

As the name implies, The Royal Hawaiian wishes to serve its hotel guests—who are staying in a special place once called Helumoa, an ancient retreat for royalty—with authentic Hawaiian hospitality and the highest quality of service.

Our Story

The New Beginning

The story of Mailani begins with the essence of this Wahi Pana (this celebrated place). It is brought to life through the sacred grounds that The Royal Hawaiian sits upon, a once favored retreat for Hawaiian Royalty and for elite travelers all around the world. It is through this royal lineage that the inspiration for the Mailani Tower was conceived; to capture a new generation of sophisticated global explorers, seeking a distinctive new experience in a contemporary and stylish retreat.


Flourish throughout the grounds of Helumoa, are the graceful elegance of pink gingers blooming. Selected for its beauty and delicate scent, the Pink Ginger has long been a prized symbol of honor and friendship in the Islands of Hawai’i; fitting to be the icon for the Mailani Tower.

With the consideration of the unique Hawaiian culture, traditional shapes were aligned with a contemporary arrangement of the gingers to create a new icon—elegant, authentic, and a reflection of Hawaii’s origins.

The final result is a six Pink Ginger blossom designed to evoke the standard of excellence in Hawaii hospitality. It is through the sense of place and culture that the icon of the Mailani Tower speaks to its promise, to deliver indulgence worthy of today’s sophisticated global explorers.
