Location and Luxury on Waikiki - My Top Hotel Pick for Couples, Families and Groups


Hotels line the beaches on Waikiki. There are so many options for accommodations and yet there are only a few for those wanting something truly special. No one wants a cookie cutter hotel for their special Hawaiian dream vacation. You want a hotel that is going to add to your vacation, one that is going to cater to your every need.

Welcome to Trump International Waikiki! Your home away from home with Hawaiian hospitality. As soon as I saw the location of the Trump International Waikiki I knew we had booked a hotel in a perfect location. Just minutes from the beach you can jet back and forth effortlessly. The Hawaiian hospitality sweeps over you as soon as you arrive.

A lei is placed over your head and you are immediately taken care of and welcomed to your temporary new home. All of the suites are beautifully appointed and come with either a kitchen or kitchenette for your convenience. Immediately you get the sense that this is an amazing space for families. We stayed as a couple for a romantic getaway, but we can’t wait to return with our children.

The property has so many suite options to accommodate any travel needs. Including suites for multiple families or multi-generational families. Yes, grandparents, parents, and children are all welcome to this beautiful hotel. There are also many dining options to keep everyone happy.

In-Yo Cafe
You can start your day here with an amazing breakfast buffet. With a customized omelet bar, made to order menu and fresh foods there will be plenty to keep you energized through all your Hawaiian adventures.

Wai’olu Ocean Cuisine
Wai‘olu Ocean Cuisine offers a new seafood dinner menu offering the freshest of seafood that includes Maine Lobster, Alaskan King Crab Legs, Kona Abalone, and Moi fish, or Pacific Threadfin. Restaurant guests can dine in an intimate and romantic setting for two, or have a gathering of family and friends while watching a beautiful Hawaiian sunset.

In-Room Dining
Usually, this option is for those looking to relax in their suite, but the hotel has another special in-room dining option that you won’t want to miss! Make sure to book a 1,2 or 3 bedroom suite as they have full gourmet kitchens. You can order ingredients and make an authentic dish right in your own kitchen. This is also a great activity for the kids! Kids will love taking a crack at cooking in their own suite. The standard rooms come with a kitchenette so if you want to do some more serious cooking make sure you upgrade to a suite with a full kitchen!

A truly striking feature of the hotel are the views. From this property you can see across Waikiki and I can’t recommend enough the ocean view suites. You will wake up and fall asleep to some of the best views on the island. Take a step out onto your balcony and soak in the island air. The sun sets right over the ocean and makes for a spectacular show every night. Open a bottle of wine on the balcony, sit down and just enjoy your bit of paradise.

If you feel like a reprieve from the beach and crowds the property has a wonderful infinity pool. For those looking to relax you will want to head to The Spa  for complete rejuvenation. This world-class spa will leave you in pure bliss for days.

There are many treatment options to choose from:

•    Purify. Treatments tailored to cleanse and enlighten body and mind.
•    Balance. Treatments created to restore depleted energy and stimulate creativity.
•    Revitalize. Treatments that boost energy, invigorating the body and revealing an uplifted inner self.
•    Calm. Treatments designed for tranquility, creating a state of complete relaxation.
•    Heal. Treatments that renew the spirit, ease the mind and soothe the body.

Something you can always count on at the Trump International Waikiki is the signature service Trump Attaché. More than just a concierge the Trump Attaché is tailored to your needs and wants during your stay. You can expect personalized attention without intrusion. From personal shopping at downtown boutiques and arranging a tour of museums near our five-star hotels to a custom-stocked refrigerator prior to your arrival, any request can be granted, no matter how specific. Your hotel stay will feel like a return home and exceed your every expectation.

I loved knowing that I had someone I could count on for anything we might need during our stay. On our second day, I was in need of an extra hair tie and was informed that there was already one in my suite for my use. With kids, I can see the Trump Attaché coming in handy quite often. Another huge benefit for families and one of those little touches that will make your day is the Trump beach tote. If you plan on heading to the beach or even just to the pool you can request one off these handy totes that comes with towels, a snack and water.

For my Japanese readers you will feel right at home with little touches like Japanese speaking hotel staff, bidets, high-quality standards and plenty of room for the whole family.

If you are looking for the ultimate Waikiki hotel you will definitely want to book your suite at the Trump International Hotel Waikiki. Make your Hawaiian dream vacation a reality by heading over here to book your suite today!
