Introducing Mailani Tower at The Royal Hawaiian
The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort opened in 1927, has been much-loved as the “Pink Palace of the Pacific.”
Did you know that the annex hotel building to The Royal Hawaiian’s Historical Wing has been reborn as the Mailani Tower?
With its own beautiful pink highlights, the tower wing, situated on the best stretch of white sand in Waikiki, has long fascinated visitors from around the world.
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.
On April 10th, management, staff, and other friends gathered at the Royal Hawaiian in the stillness of early morning. A blessing and purification rite was performed by a kahu (Hawaiian priest) before the opening ceremony.
The exclusive gate opened, leading us to the Mailani Tower through an open hallway. It was such an exciting experience to visit the renovated tower of the Royal Hawaiian on this special occasion.
The Mailani Lounge is one of the building’s noteworthy new facilities. In this ground floor lounge, Tower guests may enjoy “Mailani Mornings” and “Mailani Evenings,” with tranquil views of the pool.
Mailani Mornings (6:30 to 9:30 am) feature breakfast stations offering coffee and tea, daily special, an oatmeal station, a granola and Greek yogurt station, fresh-baked goods, and fresh fruit.
Drifting off into the land of dreams while listening to the gentle sound of waves would be the best healing moment you experience in Hawaii. Such a romantic setting would be perfect for a honeymoon.
As the hallways, elevator lobbies, and guest elevators are also scheduled for renovation, you can expect additionally smooth and efficient service in the future.
Here, one will soon understand how The Royal Hawaiian made Waikiki famous and the locale where the world first fell in love with Hawaii.”
Well, how does it all sound? Those of our staff who attended the opening ceremony were so enchanted that all of them were eager to stay at the Mailani Tower.
We would recommend you include the Mailani Tower in planning your next trip to Hawaii.
