About the Setting

The Pink Palace of the Pacific and its grand King Kamehameha Suite set this stage for our seductive spread featuring Emma Wo, Miss Hawaii USA 2015. It was King Kamehameha himself who made his home along the stunning Waikiki beachfront where The Royal Hawaiian Hotel, a Luxury Collection Resort (royal-hawaiian.com), now stands.

Overlooking the breathtaking Ocean Lawn, the Prestige Suite, named in the king’s honor, embraces his spirit in a historic enclave of opulence and romance. A masterful, red-and-yellow color scheme mirrors the Hawaiian monarchy in all its modern majesty, inviting visitors to a captivating space of Polynesian splendor. Inside, tropical koa and teak wood floors lead to the residential living room festooned with authentic Hawaiian artworks. Open the double doors to a private lanai for an unrivaled panorama of Diamond Head and Waikiki’s crystal waters.

Built in 1927, the resort ushered in a new era of luxury resort travel in the South Pacific for Americans with urbane tastes. This rich architectural icon, boasting 66,000 square feet of outdoor function space, 528 rooms and 34 suites, 18 of which are oceanfront, received an award-winning 2009 renovation by Philpotts and Associates, Inc., which reinstated The Royal Hawaiian as the Waikiki destination for sophisticated international jetsetters.

Here, world-class elegance and opulence continue to reign supreme through continuous preservation. In April, the Pink Palace is poised to provide the ultimate epicurean experience to the next generation of globetrotters with the unveiling of its renovated Mailani Beach Tower. GM Cheryl Williams shares, “Here, one will soon understand how The Royal Hawaiian became the locale where the world first fell in love with HawaiÊ»i.”
