Turtle Bay Defines Oahu’s Fabled North Shore. With almost five miles of beachfront and one of the most mesmerizing settings in the Hawaiian Islands, Turtle Bay Resort is the perfect place to take in the azure splendor of Kawela Bay, Turtle Bay and the windward view of the South Pacific. Only 45 minutes from the energetic pulse of Honolulu and Waikiki, we are the only destination resort on Oahu’s North Shore, which National Geographic has just described as being 'one of the wonders of the world – one of the planet’s most awesome places.' Spectacular ocean views are on display from every one of the Resort's 443 magnificent accommodations, including luxurious beach cottages, villas, guest rooms and suites.
Perched on a lush, tropical peninsula surrounded by spectacular ocean vistas, The Hotel at Turtle Bay Resort is truly a vacation paradise. On all sides, magnificent emerald-blue ocean views extend as far as the eye can see from every one of the 375 guest rooms, 26 suites and 42 beach cottages. Set amid five miles of shoreline, five secluded coves and bays, and five walking/jogging trails, this 880-acre resort encapsulates the North Shore's natural beauty.
Adjacent to the hotel's west side is Turtle Bay, site of surfing tournaments that are announced from a platform next to the hotel's swimming pool. About one-half mile farther west is picturesque Kawela Bay, another prime, reef-protected swimming/snorkeling spot. A World War II concrete bunker still stands at the tip of the bay's eastern point. Opened in the 1970s, Turtle Bay supplies spaciousness and graciousness, which was enhanced by the hotel's $60-million renovation, completed in early 2003. A long window-wall in the airy, light-filled, flagstone lobby overlooks Kuilima Cove and, in the background, Kahuku Point, Oahu's northernmost tip, can be seen. Plush couches and chairs provide seating for vista views. The hotel consists of 442 rooms in three seven-floor wings. As part of the renovation, a health-and-beauty spa was created that offers massage, body, and facial treatments as well as hair and nail care. For children's activities, the hotel provides the Keiki Turtle Club and an arcade/game room. A business center includes high-speed Internet access. The level below the lobby contains shops and stores.
