Hilton Honors 101

This story is part of our Hilton Honors 101 series – check out the Beginner’s Guide to Hilton Honors and check back for more articles on how to plan a dreamy honeymoon with Points, how to turn an Obli-cation into a Vacation, and more.

Book a Dream Honeymoon or Bucket List Escape

When you’re celebrating a trip as big and important as your honeymoon, it matters where you stay. If there was ever a time to redeem well-earned Points, a dream honeymoon takes the cake. With Hilton recently celebrating its milestone 7000th hotel opening, there are plenty of options for honeymooners to choose from. Book a spacious room overlooking the ocean and enjoy fine cuisine and cocktails; from water sports in aquamarine surf to dancing the night away at evening entertainment, you can have it all at Hilton’s All-Inclusive Resorts found in destinations like Curacao, Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Mexico. Or, go all out with a bucket-list stay in one of Hilton’s luxurious hotels such as Conrad Maldives Rangali Island (120,000 Points max per night to redeem) or Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi (150,000 Points max per night to redeem) for that trip you’ve had on your bucket list for years.

Hilton Honors members can use the reward travel planning tool, Points Explorer, to find properties searchable by their available Points. You can choose a specific location or search by hotel type, including all-inclusive, boutique, beach, resort, luxury, and golf, and then discover destinations with hotels and resorts that fit the bill. For example, you can book a deluxe ocean view suite at Hilton Puerto Vallarta Resort in Mexico or an all-inclusive vacation in the Dominican Republic at Hilton La Romana, an All-Inclusive Adult Only Resort both at a maximum spend of 80,000 Points per night. Silver, Gold and Diamond Hilton Honors members who book an Honors-eligible stay at any of Hilton’s All-Inclusive resorts with a spa will receive a 15% discount on one spa treatment during their stay. 

The number of Hilton Honors Points required for a standard reward stay starts as low as 5,000 Points, so you can easily find a property that suits your needs. Or, if you don’t have enough Points for the hotel you prefer, combine Points and money and let your Points trim down the cost of your wish-list getaway.
