Hotels from some of Expedia’s top trending destinations for December, 2014

Melia Bali, Indonesia

A private beach in Nusa Dua, garden villas, four poster beds, lagoon pool, five restaurants – what more do you need? This casual 4.5 star property is designed for relaxation by the beach.

Moana Surfrider, a Westin Resort & Spa, Hawaii

This historic Hawaiian hotel dates back to 1901 and was the first hotel in Waikiki. A recent refurb has kept the hotel cutting edge, with a combination of modern meets traditional style. Take afternoon tea on the verandah or lay out in a lounge chair by the pool – no need to choose, just do both!

QT Canberra, ACT

In case you haven’t heard, Canberra is cool again. The change has a lot to do with an influx of quirky design-focused hotels. At QT Canberra, the Capitol Bar and Grill is where it’s at. The profiteroles has a reputation of their own.

The Plaza Hotel, New York

One of the world’s most iconic hotels has been returned to its former glory after a $400 million renovation. The chandeliers are back to their glittering selves and the rooms are works of art themselves. Check your little princess into one of The Eloise Suites for an extra special treat.
