Hawaiian Honeymoon Registry at Luxury JW Marriott Ihilani Resort & Spa at Ko Olina

Pre-plan the ultimate romantic getaway with resort’s virtual market

World-renowned as one of Hawaii’s top romantic destinations, the luxurious JW Marriott Ihilani Resort & Spa at Ko Olina presents its online gift registry to enhance any honeymoon experience before it begins.

Once a couple makes their room reservation or books the Just the Two of You Honeymoon package, they can provide the registry link on their invitations or personal websites, allowing guests to easily select a variety of gifts and experiences via’s Honeymoon & Gift Registry page.

“This is a great alternative to the traditional wedding gift registry,” said Dan Banchiu, general manager of AAA Four Diamond award-winning JW Marriott Ihilani Resort & Spa. “The lucky couple will know their loved ones helped to make their blissful honeymoon extra special.”

The recently refreshed 387-room Ko Olina resort features a thoughtful variety of pre-arrival gift options designed to set a sensual mood, including:

* Romantic dining, including a three-course Dinner for Two on their private balcony or Breakfast in Bed

* Floral petal baths, featuring Ihilani Spa’s signature Mountain Apple bath salts, bath pillows, flameless candles and flower petals delicately placed in the large soaking tub

* Ultimate Aloha Arrival Gift welcomes the couple to the resort with a tropical drink, macadamia nuts and orchid lei

* Ultimate Gift of Aloha exudes luxury with a bottle of Dom Perignon and two Ihilani etched champagne flutes, chocolate dipped strawberries and dried pineapples, chocolate covered macadamia nuts and two monogrammed Ihilani yukata robes

The virtual market is also a convenient way for all guests to pre-plan their JW Marriott Ihilani stay. Guests can pre-order almost anything, from food and beverage items to room upgrades, turndown amenities, spa products and tickets to the entertaining Fia Fia Show.
