Del Webb, the real estate mogul and one-time New York Yankees owner, opened Turtle Bay Resort in 1972 and ever since then, it's been entertaining guests with an involving line-up of activities, from surfing lessons and making your own flower-leis to learning how to play the ukulele. Add to this the two chlorine-free swimming pools, water slide, trails for hiking and biking, and championship golf courses, and it's no wonder that Turtle Bay draws sizable crowds. Wicker and natural woods contrast with brighter shades indoors, while the verdant north shore of Oahu provides all the views you need from the terrace restaurant, Ola. Nalu Kinetic Spa provides ocean panoramas, a massage table that simulates the sensation of floating at sea, and calming hot-stone treatments.
Location
It's worth staying at this Hawaiian resort just for the surroundings. Turtle Bay is found in a section of Oahu's famed North Shore known for its unique rock formations, spectacular surfing beaches, and the majestic green sea turtles for which it is named. Near to both Kawela Bay Beach Park and the James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge, the Kamehameha Highway leads southeast from the hotel to the Polynesian Cultural Center, for those seeking signs of modern civilization.

Dining

Lei Lei's Bar and Grill
Mouthwatering dishes and a laid back atmosphere make Lei Lei's a famous local haunt on O'ahu's Fabled North Shore. Talk Story with entertaining manager and host Ian. The excellent dishes and service is what brings regulars from the surf and movie industry here Dinner features a menu brimming over with entrees of fresh, succulent seafood, savory beef, chicken and pork prepared to perfection. Signature dishes include slow-roasted prime rib, ginger soy Ahi and our warm bacon dressing spinach salad. Compliment the meal with a selection from our extensive wine list. Lei Lei's is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast is served weekdays starting at 7:00 a.m. and on weekends starting at 6:30 a.m. Lunch is served from 11:00 a.m. Dinner seating begins at 5:00 p.m. with the last seating at 10:00 p.m. Live soloist music is played every Thursday and Sunday nights from 6:00 p.m.
Pa'akai
A fresh twist on locally sourced dining. Pa'akai - or "sea salt" in the Hawaiian language, reflecting Hawaii's numerous seaside salt beds - features sea-to-table cuisine. Pa'akai's menu highlights the best in fresh local fish, farm-raised lobster, Kauai prawns, sea asparagus, seaweed and sea salt produced in Hawaii.
North Shore Kula Grille
The ancient Hawaiians divided their land into three sections: Mauka, kula and makai - or mountains, midland and the sea - known as ahupua 'a. It is the kula lands, primarily used for agriculture, that now serve as the inspiration for the North Shore Kula Grille. A place where farm-to-table thinking is behind every ingredient on our menu.
Lobby Lounge
At the Lobby Lounge, you will find friendly service, exotic cocktails and a diverse menu to satisfy all of your cravings. Enjoy freshly brewed Coffees, Latts, Cappuccinos, Espresso Drinks, Smoothies, Beer, Wine, and Handcrafted Cocktails like the Pupukea Lychee and the Skinny Lilikoi Chi Chi. Signature dishes include Citrus Ponzu Calamari and Grilled Kahuku Honey & Mango Glazed Chicken.
Ola
Enjoy contemporary island cuisine with the sand between your toes. The only restaurant on O'ahu located literally on the beach, Ola is an experience for all the senses. The concept, cuisine and atmosphere of the open-aired restaurant that literally sits on the beach is summed up in its name, "Ola" which means "life, living, healthy and alive." Chef Fred DeAngelo delights guests with his innovative cuisine.
Surfer, The Bar
Forget dark wood paneling and marble bar-tops, Surfer has its own very original look and feel. And although the bartender can fastidiously make your favorite cocktail, the drink of choice here is a 16-ounce pint of ice-cold beer, many of them local small-batch brews. Sure the food is fresh, flavorful, sometimes spicy Hawaiian comfort food, prepared by white-hat chefs in the acclaimed resort kitchen. But food, beverage and dcor are not the real reasons why the audience - locals, guests of the hotel and word travelers - gather here.
The Point
Enjoy tropical drinks surfside at the outdoor The Point. Stop by for a refreshing break and one of the island's best Mai Tai's. Relax to the sounds of the surf while you discover why Turtle Bay Resort has received awards for "Hotel with the Best View." Every night of the week you will find something special happening here. You may find a Drum Circle, a keiki hula halau, live Hawaiian Style music, Fish Fries, or Fire Knife Dancers and every day at sunset you have a chance to order The Point signature drink, the "Green Flash".

North Shore perfection

Turtle Bay is a world away from Waikiki on the north shore. Very relaxed vibe up there. It was recently renovated so the room and common areas were all in great shape. The pool area and restaurants are all top notch (toes in the sand while eating is super!), and the crowd is a mixture of families, large groups and couples (lots of honeymooners). Great vista for the sunset in summer.

Bedding

Even though we booked a room request for two beds (3 persons) the resort could not accommodate---so, one person sleep on the floor.

Best vacation ever!!

The staff was friendly and fast, always attentive. The housekeeping staff was phenomenal and took great care of us throughout our stay. The location was on the northern tip of the island so the views were amazing, but not so far away that we couldn't drive into Honolulu when the mood struck us. I will definitely be making this trip again and staying at Turtle Bay! The only suggestion for improvement would be more snorkel time per day with the resort fee.

precruise stay on North Shore Oahu

We arrived late due to airline difficulties staff very helpful in finding food that was served from their deli/cafe. Bread on Roast beef sandwich was soggy, but better than nothing. The room met expectations, Supreme King with Ocean view - incredible view. Only problem is that Turtle Bay is on the north side of Oahu. When we arrived at the airport our car rental company was closed and we fortunately were able to get a car from Avis (last minute - no deals). The road to Turtle bay is very congested during the daytime- so if you want to stay there- no shuttles to Honolulu. You have to rent a car. I would not attempt to drive into Honolulu to sight-see - just stay at the resort and enjoy. Advantage rent a car would not honor our prior price agreement and we ended up bringing the car back the next day to Avis, and renting another car from Avis (through on-line booking site).The back and forth to Honolulu is not a fun trip, be careful of all the pedestrian crossings along the beaches, really slows traffic down. But the drive has nice views in either way you go back to Honolulu. Our room attendant Victoria was very pleasant and accommodating. I give her 5 stars. .

Memorable Honeymoon

My husband and I booked a 5 days and 4 nights stay at Turtle Bay Resorts for our honeymoon. The resorts location was beautiful. It was remote, quiet and provided us an exquisite view of the Oahu ocean and its powerful waves. The room was very clean and spacious. We recommend this resort to friends and family. Unfortunately, the wifi connection was not as expected. The connection was static at times there was no connection at all in our room or at the lobby.

Lovely place to stay

Very nice place to stay. Check in was a bit disappointing in that the hotel has sold out of our desired room and I was forced to pay for 3 nights of upgrade costs :(. However, the location was perfect. Scenery was amazing and live entertainment was very enjoyable and relaxing.

great conference site

Stayed for a week for a conference and had a great time. The resort does an excellent job of immersing you in the north shore culture and environment. Close to lots of surf and water activities. Enjoyed 2 spectacular afternoons of golf at world class courses.
