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.

Everyone we encountered at this resort was wonderful and inviting, from the bell desk to the front desk to the spa, room service and shop attendants, to the wait staff. The prices are higher than what we are used to, but the view and overall experience was worth it. It was settling and peaceful to fall asleep to the waves crashing 50 yds away after enjoying a magnificently beautiful sunset.

Pleasant location but super expensive. No cheaper alternatives for meals. Everything has a price tag, even a shade umbrella on the beach. ( Approx $40.00 u.s. a day.). And there is no restaurants locally outside the resort. An hour's bus trip to the nearest village. Worth the trip for the garlic shrimp. In saying this, the service at the resort was good. But remember Australians, you must tip at least 15% and add tax so take plenty of dollars.

So wonderful

We had a beautiful stay. I chose to bring my family to the north shore Turtle Bay resort instead of the Waikiki area because I wanted them to see the beauty of the island and not the over crowded back home city. My 17 year old grandson, my sister and her 17 year old daughter. These teenagers loved the resort and all of the north shore. The resort is beautiful and we were treated well from the management to the house keepers and anyone else we communicated with. We had a minor concern with our room but management took care of it. They made sure we were comfortable and taken care of. The grounds are breathtaking with beautiful sunsets. The restaurants are very good and they a have Roy's beach house that we went to several times. Everyone at Roy's were so friendly and the service was great. The lobby lounge has a very good grab a breakfast with sandwiches, fruit, juices, and the coffee is wonderful. It's not a Starbucks which I was very happy about. They have their own coffee that I look forward to when I visit the islands. I thank you Turtle Bay for not having a Starbucks. I recommend going to the lobby lounge for happy hour. The drinks have a great price and have a good food menu which we took advantage of. I've read comments where people say the resort pool bar and restaurants are expensive. You have to keep in mind, no matter what five star or four star hotel you go to they are expensive. I truly expected to pay more for eating at the hotel but it was average compared to other hotel, but I must admit the drinks at the pool bar are truly over priced. The resort does have food trucks down the street you can always go to that are really good. We also went horseback riding at the resort that I highly recommend. They take you along the beach and back into the woods. The beach at the resort is very nice and safe to swim, and the pools are very nice. It was all so beautiful. All I can say is I loved, loved our stay and can't wait to return.

Awesome Location, Hotel... Not so Much

This part of Oahu is a world away from the areas around Honolulu which is why we came up for one night. From the reviews, it seems like people are staying at two different properties--one great and one not so great. I'm in the not so great crowd. The rooms were more like an older chain hotel that needs an update than a 4 star property. The bathroom had a half glass shower panel that allows the floor to get wet which I found quite odd from a long-term maintenance perspective. The carpet in the room was wrinkled and worn and the large window blinds needed a good cleaning. The rooms really don't merit the prices they charge but I guess as long as people keep coming, they can keep charging... The location is great and the hotel is right on the ocean. It was super windy when we where there and you could hear the wind howling all night. Most of the staff were very friendly. As noted, the food isn't cheap but you are on an island. As others have pointed out, they aren't many other food choices close so make sure you have a car. I know they have cottages and other room types but the basic hotel room really is a bit blah, so know what you are getting into before you book.

Great family holiday - nice beach and golf courses!

Turtle bay was a great place to holiday with the family. The rooms were excellent and the sheltered beach out front a perfect place to relax. It’s golf courses were both good. The Arnold palmer course was the pick but the Fazio course was a lot of fun as well. I suggest taking a multi day golf package. A great holiday. Not cheap but worth it.
