Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu’s Fabled North Shore is ushering in a new era of North Shore hospitality with the completion of its multi-million-dollar renovation this fall. It’s an important milestone in an extensive re-branding campaign launched in 2011 that focuses on creating authentic experiences found only on the North Shore.

All 410 main building guest rooms and hallways have been upgraded with a redesign of fixtures, furnishings, bedding and décor, as well as completely remodeled bathrooms with touches like new tile, vanities, and walk-in showers. Contemporary and classic styles from Hawaiian homes have been used, and every room offers ocean views. Room rates start at $319.

The new North Shore Kula Grille and Pa’akai restaurants keep pace with appetites hungry for Hawaiian flavours — especially seafood, meats and produce sourced from local farms and waters. Also launched is the Nalu Kinetic Spa, a first-of-its-kind health and wellness center. This full-service spa features a movement studio, a fitness center with expansive ocean views and an array of innovative and traditional treatments. And finally, Turtle Bay is now home to two coastal lifestyle retail outlets — the Watershed and Oakley at Turtle Bay, plus an exclusive media centre by GoPro, with the latest cameras and accessories.
