Refreshing cocktails, light gourmet tapas and the Mai Tai Bar’s iconic beachfront - all contribute to leaving you with an exquisite indelible imprint of our idyllic island lifestyle.
The Surf Lanai
The Surf Lana‘i is a chic poolside enclave offering breakfast and lunch al fresco between interludes of frolicking in the sparkling Pacific Ocean or serene freshwater pool. Crisp white linens commingle with captivating island flowers and vivid table top accents to complement the chefs’ presentation of continental epicure delights. The menu is contemporary Hawai‘i cuisine – the chefs infuse authentic island ingredients with international preparation techniques. The Surf Lana‘i provides a stimulating repast to start an extraordinary day.
The entry to unrivaled epicurean experiences is illuminated by a wall of mother-of-pearl mosaic opening to a bejeweled oceanfront space adorned with intimate candles, plush banquettes and pillows. The Royal Hawaiian presents Azure – a world-class restaurant perched along the Waikiki beachfront under the canopy of hotel’s dramatic architecture. Fish and the freshest fruits de mer is the forte of Azure. Whether it is ahi, opah, onaga, uku or moi that whets your appetite – locally caught fish are selected each morning at daybreak from the Hawaii fish auction and then prepared with your pleasure in mind. Choose between a classic preparation of high heat aromatic herb roasting or an innovative Hawaiian regional cuisine preparation served with bright tropical flavors. Expert servers and sommeliers provide intuitive recommendations for perfect wine pairing to accent the delicate flavors of the ocean.
The Pool Lounge at The Royal Beach Club Tower provides a serene and seductive oasis for those seeking to sun worship in style. Or spend the day hiding within your private silkily clad poolside cabana while a discreet server attends to your every wish – a refreshing elixir, gourmet bento bites or head-to-toe Evian spritz? In the evening, the area is transformed into an enchantingly romantic enclave illuminated by a galaxy of candles while The Royal’s own house audio architect designs a chic ambiance for your aural pleasure.
Royal Beach Club
The most coveted spot on Waikiki Beach lies within the billowing sanctuary of the private beachfront cabanas at the Royal Beach Club. Unrivaled panoramic views of Diamond Head, Waikiki Beach and the sparkling Pacific Ocean await those hotel guests fortunate to lounge within the confines of these singularly captivating seaside retreats. Royal Beach Club servers attend to the most delicate details, focused on providing you with an exceptional experience –whether you wish for a repast of gourmet bites, refills of a refreshing elixir or an oceanfront lomilomi massage. Twilight transforms the cabanas into jewel box dining spaces – stylish and seductive – for an intimate epicurean adventure or sipping fine cocktails under a starlit sky.
