5. The Royal Hawaiian – Waikiki Beach, Hawaii: A Luau in Pink Paradise

Unwind by the Malulani Pool, make a splash on the water slide at the Helumoa Playground, or soak up the sun on the beach.

Of course, you can’t miss out on delicious Hawaiian flavors. Grab a stack of the signature Royal Hawaiian Pink Palace Pancakes served with toasted coconut and haupia sauce (sweet and salty coconut syrup). Or, experience a traditional Hawaiian luau at Ahaaina, where hula dancers entertain, and traditional dishes like poi and lomi salmon and kalua pork are served.
