At The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort, our guests can enjoy two pool options that cater to everyone's needs: our quiet and intimate Malulani Pool, along with our Helumoa Playground (shared with Sheraton Waikiki), perfect for kids and families. Explore both pools below. 

Malulani Pool
Infinitely appealing to guests seeking relaxation and revitalization, the Malulani Pool and Cabanas are the perfect antidote. Offering a quiet oasis fronting world-famous Waikiki Beach and the sparkling Pacific Ocean, this exclusive poolside enclave is lined by luxurious lounge chairs with plush cushions under the shade of over-sized, deck umbrellas. Private poolside cabanas are available for hire atop a stunning stone pool deck. Bask in the sun as beach and pool attendants attend to your every wish. As the sun sets over the ocean, enjoy a relaxing soak in our tropical jacuzzi. Reserve a Pool Cabana 

The Malulani Pool at The Royal Hawaiian is exclusive to The Royal Hawaiian guests only. 

For the courtesy of our guests, we have a pool chair tagging policy for chairs left unattended for more than 2 hours.
