With almost five miles of beachfront, Turtle Bay is the perfect place to take in the azure beauty of Kawela Bay, Bay View Beach Lawn, and, of course, Turtle Bay. Only 55 minutes from the energetic pulse of Honolulu and Waikiki city, the oceanfront setting immerses guests in the natural tranquility of Oahu's Fabled North Shore lifestyle.

Turtle Bay is unrivaled on Oahu when it comes to accommodations. Guests stay at the rarest of locations - a beautiful peninsula surrounded by the ocean. Because this is the northern-most point of Oahu, both sunrise and sunset are visible. All 375 guest rooms and 25 suites in the wings of the main hotel feature unobstructed ocean views and private lanais to let the outdoors in. The classic 42 beach cottages provide a spacious escape, with vaulted ceilings, deep soaking tubs, and a dedicated Cottage Concierge. The incomparable villas, overlooking Kuilima Cove, deliver a masterful blend of exclusivity and relaxation from their coveted beachfront location.

The collection of dining options at Turtle Bay allows you to indulge in the finest Hawaiian Island cuisine prepared by knowledgeable chefs in spellbinding settings. Harmonizing the influences of Hawaii with the freshest organic ingredients from the North Shore, chefs present a sumptuous menu rich in exotic tastes and artistic flare. Sample handcrafted cocktails from their Mixologists or create your own.

A luxury beach resort, Turtle Bay also features championship golf courses by Fazio and Palmer, tennis courts, horseback riding, hiking, and mountain bike trails, a surfing school, world-class dining, and shopping. Enjoy two lushly landscaped pools - the main pool and hot tubs are surrounded with ocean views, tropical flowers, and swaying palm trees. Two hot tubs are located in the main pool area, one of each end of the pool. A kiddie pool is home to a waterfall and an 80-foot waterslide that is open to and fun for all ages! Both Resort pools operate using saline which is composed of natural salt water rather than chemically-based chlorine.

At the spa Nalu you can choose from an array of face and body spa care therapies where highly trained staff will ensure a rejuvenating experience. The massage, body treatments, and skin and salon services transport you to an oasis of serenity.

When we went to check in Turtle Bay said our reservations were canceled by Apple. Apple denied canceling them. Don't know who was at fault but we got our room back after 15 minutes and had a great vacation at Turtle Bay

The second day we were there, we were checking on activities for the week. Our son left our camera on the desk and a worker walk up hid it in front of her and tried to walk away. Thank goodness I saw her with it and asked my son. She heard and said "oh is it yours?" she was stealing it no dought I will never stay there because you can't trust who you see let alone the people you don't.

The staff at this hotel is unbelievably friendly and awesome! Between them and the clean rooms, I would def go back. The food is insanely priced, but probably on par for resorts. It's ridiculous that they don't have a shuttle from the airport for this place. The adventure options were fantastic and all of the guides we had for kayaking, segways, and most especially surfing (shout out to Jason!!!) were SO in love with their jobs that it made everything super super fun. I was there for a week and there weren't many entertainment options. I would have expected a few more organized activities, games, meet-ups, something like that. Longer hours outside at the bar with live music by the beach would have been nice. Still, great place. Hope to get to go back sometime. C'monnnn free vacay...!

If you are looking for a great place on the North Shore; you should most certainly try Turtle Bay. The room was clean, the views are amazing, the staff was remarkably friendly and the breakfast buffet was DELICIOUS. Worth the investment!

My wife and I had a 7night stay at the Turtle bay resort. The resort was beautiful located on Oahu's north shore. From just about anywhere on the resort you had a great view of the north shore waves crashing against the beautiful Oahu beaches. I would recommend this resort for any one who is looking to get away from the city life and enjoy Oahu's beauty. The restaurants where all little pricey but the service and food were excellent. The only thing this resort lacked in was a night life, the bars where pretty much done by quarter to 10 which was earlier than they advertized. All in all we had a great time and would visit again.

april stay in the cottages
ken l, San Jose, California

After reading the previous reviews, I definitely understand how the positive and negative reviewers feel. Upon arrival, we were pleased to see the grounds were nice, the hotel the 'right' size (ill get to that later), everything looked as in photos. We were greeted pleasantly, and immediatly helped with at the check in. For this trip with my family, we decided to splurge on the cottages, and be away from the main resort. The cottages are a 3-5 minute walk from the main property, but the staff 'always' wanted to give you a ride to and from, and made it seem like it was so far away, I appreciate the courtesy, but at a point it seemed to be driven by getting $ tips. So trust me, its a very walkable property. Now for the cottages, I highly recommend the units 138-142, these are the furthest from the main property and pool noise, also the service noise, as the main service tunnel is under the resort, and the driveway is busy all day with delivery trucks, with their backup beepers constantly going. so peace and quiet is at the end of the cottages! The room itself is very spacious and comfortable, great for a family of 3-4. The room was nice and clean, the beds very comfortable and the bathroom was very large and clean. The only minor draw back is that the whole bathroom is open, meaning the toilet is right there, not in a seperate room, so this made getting ready for the day or dinner a bit more troublesome as we now had to really 'share' the bathroom ;-) The only negative points Id have about the room is the screen door was a mess, very worn, and it came off its tracks and when I tried to fix, I slammed the thing onto my toe which a week later is still bruised. The outdoor lounger was nice, but needs to be cleaned once in a while, it was dirty and reeked of B.O. and sunscreen. Highlights here outweigh the negatives though, as you are right at the ocean, and it was very enjoyable to walk out to the water, and listen to the waves at night! And the rooms are spaced so you dont really see your neighbors. Another nice touch, we had empty rooms between us and the neighbors, this had to be purposely done, and was awesome of the staff to be aware of this, and to provide that little extra comfort of not having to hear your neighbors, well done. Also, the nice bottles of water, and afternoon treats/gifts were a nice touch. The cottage staff really is there for you and want to be sure you are enjoying yourselves. I thought the customer service was right on point, genuine and not overtly pushy. We also used the gym, and its pretty nice to be looking out over the ocean while working out. There was plenty of equipment too. I played the Arnold Palmer course, and as another reviewer wrote, the rented clubs were very nice, even for a hack like me, and the 3 some I was playing with thought I was an amazing driver (which Im not!) but that driver was awesome! The course was immaculate, and surprising did not play as hard as I was told, even on a very windy day. We did have breakfast at their buffet, and that was pretty standard, overpriced (which is common) but the food overall was good. The restaurant itself seems dated (like 1980's) but we also heard that there is new ownership, so lets see what happens. The rest of the resort was nice, and what I meant by it being the right size, we look for places that are not crazy huge, like the hilton on the Big Island, we prefer these 4-5 story resorts, as they tend to be a lot more relaxing, quiet, and enjoyable. Now someone mentioned the pool being loud and crazy, I didnt get that, even though a lot of kids. The pool is pretty big, the water slide fun enough, even for a 13 year old, and everyone seemed to space themselves out nicely. What this may be like on a busy, summer week, I dont know, but for mid april we enjoyed the pool. The one complaint was even though they had 4-5 servers, both days we never once got asked to see a menu or like to order something. This has its good and bad points, as it is nice not to be 'hounded' like you are at some resorts, but asking once would be good, just to know what are needs are, like we might say "we'll order some lunch later' so you know to come by later. But in grand scheme its a minor issue. Now for the new ownership, and talking to some of the staff on their opinions, it sounds like this may be a positive thing for the resort. One staff member said that the new owners want to keep the feel of the resort as it is, but do expect to 'modernize' it with remodeled rooms. Hopefully this does not have a dramatic increase on prices. The cottages were $700 a night (incl taxes), and thats pushing our budget, but was worth the price to have a real relaxing room where we could enjoy the ocean sounds, and not people yelling/talking and kids being kids. I'd imaging if you wanted quiet vacation, this place would be amazing on a off week/low occupany time. Sorry I cant tell you what the main hotel rooms were like. But overall I do recommend this resort, even if you could only do a few days, its worth it.

The grounds are magnificent. The Palmer Course was beautiful and my rented clubs were absolutely dreamy. My room, however was in need of an upgrade. The room had mold in the shower and the bottom of the bathroom door was rotting. The sliding door base is raised about 3

Awesome surfing for all levels!

Impressive waves right next to resort, but actually “soft” enough to be suitable for beginners. The resort itself was very nice: great quality rooms, clean everywhere, and great service, friendly and helpful.

This our second time staying here . The staff is really friendly . No complaints there . The rooms are nice and beds very very comfortable . Just seems to be a little overpriced and Very crowded with kids screaming all day at the pool also with having to pay for self parking and the food prices as well . Not sure if we will be back . But wasn’t that bad
