Paris Hilton’s Sponsored Hilton Honeymoon

Paris Hilton’s Sponsored Hilton Honeymoon

17

While I wouldn’t usually look to Paris Hilton for travel inspiration, her recent honeymoon will interest points enthusiasts more than you’d think.

Paris Hilton’s five-part Hilton honeymoon

Paris Hilton got married to Carter Reum in November 2021, and the couple jetted off on a seven week round-the-world honeymoon. You might think that the hotel heiress would drop a boatload of money on a private honeymoon, but nope, instead she turned it into a business opportunity (nepotistic as it may be).

Paris uploaded a five-part series to her YouTube channel, with each episode covering a different part of her trip, in what she calls “My Dream Honeymoon.” Every single stop on the honeymoon is at a Hilton property.

Okay, Paris’ commentary isn’t particularly insightful or deep, but the video footage of some of Hilton’s most aspirational properties is pretty cool

The series starts off at the Conrad Bora Bora.

Then they go to Zemi Beach House Anguilla, which is an LXR property.

Next they travel to London, where they stay at The Biltmore Mayfair, also an LXR property.

Without a doubt the most interesting episode is in the Maldives, where they stay at both the Conrad and Waldorf Astoria. At the Conrad they even stay in the underwater room, which the public rarely gets a glimpse of (and I believe this ordinarily retails for somewhere around $50K per night).

Lastly they check out the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah.

Don’t expect in-depth reviews, but this is still kind of cool to see. The Conrad Bora Bora is the only one of these properties I’ve stayed at, though all the other properties are on my bucket list, so it was nice to get a general sense of what to expect. If you’re just going to watch one episode, check out the Maldives one, as it’s really cool to see the Conrad’s underwater villa.

Also, I can’t believe I just spent this much time watching Paris Hilton videos…

Was this actually Paris Hilton’s honeymoon?

There’s a lot of “influencing” going on in the travel space, though I’d be fascinated to know the economics of this. This was a paid promotion on the part of Hilton, so I suspect that in addition to everything being comped, Paris also got a paycheck, and one has to wonder how much that was. The interesting angle here is that her family also founded Hilton, so I wonder how that impacted things.

Obviously this looks like an incredible trip with stops in some of the world’s most beautiful places. At the same time, on your honeymoon you’d think you’d want to just spend time with one another, and not filming everything, kissing on camera, etc.

I guess everything in life is ultimately a business opportunity, and it’s no different than how many reality TV stars and other influencers sell the rights to their weddings and other important life events.

I wonder if they’re going to have another (more private) honeymoon, or if this was it. Presumably the couple has tens of millions of dollars, so while these are some great properties, there are some more special experiences you could have if you’re willing to drop the cash.

Bottom line

Paris Hilton just completed a seven week round-the-world honeymoon with her husband, stopping at some of the world’s most highly regarded Hilton properties. From Bora Bora, to Anguilla, to London, to the Maldives, to Dubai, this was quite a Hilton Honors bucket list trip.

I enjoyed watching these clips for getting a sense of Hilton’s top properties, and I’d say it’s probably a pretty decent ad for the brand as well. In particular, it was cool to see the Conrad Maldives’ underwater villa.

What do you make of these honeymoon videos, if you can bring yourself to watch them?

    Conrad Rangali opened in 1997 as the first branded hotel in the Maldives. We were lucky enough to visit the "old" Hilton a few times before it was totally renovated into the Conrad. Every time I collect enough points we go back for another visit. Probably our last will be in March. Borrowed some points off by brother to stretch this special 50'th to 15 nights. Can't wait.

    But we are in the cheapest beach villas - and I love them. Have stayed overwater and in the deluxe villa but the simple one fits my taste. Love walking out the front door and straight into the reef for a quick snorkle.

    No curtains in the underwater room!!??
    I saw her "breakout" video.
    Maybe she will make another one!

    Actually Paris alone is worth more than tens of millions. She has many perfume lines for decades not to mention other businesses she owns. I’m sure Hilton is paying her minimally a million dollars to do these informercials. I would not be surprised if she jets off to Laucala Island to be pampered in private after shooting these segments. The underwater room looks interesting and very Instagramable. At that price though, I guess one won’t...

At that price though, I guess one won’t be seeing 20 year olds taking selfies in that room any time soon…. Unless they made a boat load via crypto. Lol.

    There's a Hilton Garden Inn in Krasnoyarsk, Russia (Siberia), and she attended the opening. True story. So there's that...

    I was hoping to get a view of the island that was teased. I don't really g.a.s. about her.

  7. dee Guest

    I enjoyed all of the scenery.. did not need to hear that this was and has been her entire life-visiting around the world properties,.. How lucky

  8. Pam Guest

    Would think with so many month-a-versaries hubs could learn some decent moves. Tip: clips are best viewed set to mute with focus on the incredible fashion, beauty, & scenery.

  9. Michael Guest

    Wow - I can’t imagine a better reason to not go to a property than the endorsement of famous people who are famous for being rich.

    Boycott Hilton Hotel properties, since they have disrespected and have no regard of Diamonds members by eliminating free breakfast at most of their prime properties.

    If you haven't already, check out Trisha Paytas' recent honeymoon videos at the Muraka. She even made a couple videos in Emirates First Class.

  12. JoePro Guest

    You can find The Muraka (underwater villa) for as low as ~10K, which might be considered a bargain when looking at some other high-end rooms in the Maldives.

    I've so far stayed at the JJAE at the St Regis (split the $3500/nt cost between three of us and paid 85K points for the night) and the Stella Maris Villa at W.A (briefly lived T-Mobile mistake rate of $2500++)

    Park Hyatt Maldives also recently introduced their...

    Park Hyatt Maldives also recently introduced their Presidential Villa, but on the low end its $11K++/nt. I'd rather have the Muraka for that amount (and intend to try it out one day).

    Those are definitely barely disguised ads. I normally would not watch those, but as it turns out I'm leaving next week end for a week at Zemi Beach House so I was curious to see a recent "review" :D . But I couldn't get through it, way too cringe.

    Paris’ family originally cut her from the family fortune because of her party girl ways and she responded by deciding to be rich enough on her own that no one would ever tell her what to do again. So she took the appearance fees she got for showing up at trendy LA clubs, found a trustworthy investment team, and parlayed that into her own fortune. That she’s advertising for Hilton now might be seen as...

    Paris’ family originally cut her from the family fortune because of her party girl ways and she responded by deciding to be rich enough on her own that no one would ever tell her what to do again. So she took the appearance fees she got for showing up at trendy LA clubs, found a trustworthy investment team, and parlayed that into her own fortune. That she’s advertising for Hilton now might be seen as sone sort of family reconciliation l. I’m indifferent on Paris as a person but respect that she has worked hard to get where she is financially instead of just blowing that appearance money on shoes and champagne

    1. Jim Guest

      Agree - as easy as it might be to make fun of her, she's done a brilliant job business wise, and an extremely amazing role in her work to reduce abuse in children's mental health facilities.

    2. Eskimo Guest

      That's what a good PR agency is meant to do.
      Same goes with saying $15 credit is better than breakfast.
      The only difference is most people don't care about the Hilton family fortune to call out the deception. (and some who are blindly loyal to Hilton throwing money recklessly at the hotel)

      By the way, the only thing Paris really did is called growing up.
