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.

Hotel is amazing but the staff is even better!
We came to turtle bay for a wedding and had an experience we will never forget. The property is absolutely beautiful but the staff members truly have a passion for providing the best experience for their guests and it definitely shows. You feel welcome and like family from the moment you pull up to check in. Sisi assisted us at registration and was extremely friendly and helpful. She accommodated an early check in for us. I know it is never a guarantee but she did everything she could to get us in. Jeff with the bell staff helped us with our bags and also took us to the golf course later in the afternoon. We loved Jeff! We spent some of the day at the pool and had the pleasure of meeting Bobbi. She was amazing and made our day at the pool so fun. She truly loves what she does and it’s shows! Later that night, we went to Kula Grill for snacks and some drinks. John and Frank served us and were amazing!! We didn’t want to leave because of how much fun we were having. We also had the pleasure of meeting one of your food and beverage managers Tufa. He was amazing as well. We could have hung out for hours. They were friendly, attentive and made us feel so special. The next pool day, Steve served us. That was the icing in the cake. Your entire staff, your entire team is truly amazing and we could not be more greatlful for the experience they made for us. Thank you turtle bay crew! We will be back! Yes, the views and property are great but the staff is what will make your trip one to remember.
Beautiful, just beautiful
This was our third visit to Turtle Bay. We love the location, the amenities, the beach and the pools. Of course it is pricy but you get what you pay for. The Surf School got little kids and a teenager to stand and have the time of their lives.
We enjoyed our stay but were expecting a little more. We had a hard time sleeping because of the air conditioning was not very strong and because the window coverings did not block a lot of light. Also, the beach was incredibly rocky. Not a big deal if you bring water shoes, but be prepared to pay for a beach chair because that is $15+.
Not perfect for kids
Amazing views great quality but not kid friendly (cottages). We had a one bedroom cottage which was amazing- just like in the movie. Great views, ocean access and two steps in the room that our 2yo fell down twice despite us being diligent. The grounds are not stroller friendly- cottages are not be accessible with a stroller without lifting it up. The other problems- the pool is 11feet deep on one end (a little scary with kids), the pool area is surrounded by cliffs (it’s what makes the place beautiful but a consideration with kids that like to explore) Long story short- I’d go back again in a hearty but wouldn’t book the cottages with my kids.
An outstanding getaway
This was my first visit to the North Shore and turtle Bay resort. I will absolutely stay at this resort anytime I return to Oahu. While it is an older resort, the staff and amenities, room, spa and all the activities offered were outstanding. The best beaches with snorkeling and water activities. Something for everyone. I used Nali Spa services for a couples massage and it was the best massage therapist I have ever experienced. I highly recommend you add Turtle Bay Resort to your “destination vacation” list!
