Lodging
“The Royal Hawaiian is an iconic hotel in the heart of Waikiki, with nice shops, bars and restaurants. Right out front on the beach, you can hop on one of the many catamarans that come on-shore daily almost every hour to take boaters out to sea for 1-2 hours. The beach here also offers rentals for SUP, surfing and outrigger canoe rides. A very short walk to dinner to Roy's or Nobu and to the shopping on the main drag Kalakaua Ave. They offer car valet for the day, and you can get it validated from one of the restaurants or bars inside the hotel. ”
