Turtle Bay Resort Hotel Review

: Casual, quiet and seasonally lively, this resort is located about 45 minutes from the Honolulu Airport and the shopping and nightlife of Waikiki. This North Shore property offers a peaceful setting with un-crowded beaches, lots of activities and amenities, and fantastic sunset views. The resort has two challenging golf courses with a total of 36 championship holes designed by Arnold Palmer and George Fazio. On-site Nalu Kinetic Spa emphasizes a multi-sensory experience that incorporates the ocean setting, from the sound of the surf to a wave therapy massage table. Several outstanding restaurants include The North Shore Kula Grille for seasonal regional cuisine and Ola for an eclectic blend of Hawaiian fare with flavors from around the world. In addition, Pa'akai offers a unique experience with the tableside preparation of authentic Hawaiian dishes. The area comes into its own during the winter months when nearby beaches are the setting for gigantic surf and numerous surfing competitions. It’s a mecca for the international surf crowd, and the air can be absolutely electric with activity. All standard rooms have ocean views, and the newer villas and beach cottages are spacious and luxurious. The property also boasts a spa, several tennis courts, horseback riding, surf lessons and snorkeling. The pool with waterslide is always one of the most popular spots on the property. The resort has a reputation for attracting celebrities, and a few TV shows and even a blockbuster movie have been filmed here.
