Top Honeymoon Destinations: Trump International Hotel Waikiki Beach Walk
Trump International Hotel Waikiki Beach Walk
This elegant Oahu high-rise is perfect for the couple looking to be completely spoiled during their honeymoon: Rooms are decked out in marble and granite with high-end kitchens or kitchenettes; every room boasts views of the Pacific, Diamond Head, or the Waianae Mountains; and the turbocharged concierge service, called Trump Attaché, can help make any idea (rose petals in your room? A romantic dinner at a top restaurant?) a reality. Once the jet lag wears off, plan a walk or jog through one of the three nearby parks: Ala Moana, Kapiolani, or Fort DeRussy. Round-trip routes (one takes you to iconic Diamond Head) range from 2.5 to six miles; just ask the concierge for a map. Don't worry, you'll still have plenty of time to lounge around the sixth-floor pool, shop in the many local boutiques, or test out the ultra-decadent Spa at Trump when you return.
Instead of standard treatment rooms, the spa has only suites, so you can change, shower, get your massage, and chill out in the tub afterward all in one room, whether you're enjoying the spa solo or with your new husband. Ask for a room with a Japanese soaking tub, a cylindrical model that you sit—versus recline—in, so you're submerged up to your chin; it's heavenly! The spa's signature treatments use gemstone-infused oils (from diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, and rubies) as well as botanicals. Try the Calming Sapphires Massage, which is supposed to promote tranquility ($260 for 90 minutes).
