Turtle Bay plans extensive renovations

Turtle Bay Resort, on Oahu’s North Shore, will embark early next year on the largest component of US$60 million in upgrades. The renovation, which will begin in early January and be completed by the end of 2013, will encompass all of the 840-acre resort’s 397 standard and premium guest rooms and hallways; the Spa Luana and fitness centre; two restaurants; as well as improvements to the main building roof and lobby area. These planned renovations follow the recent addition of Surfer, The Bar in November 2011; and enhancements to the resort’s lobby and lobby bar, all of which are line with the resort’s rebranding campaign, launched in 2011. In 2003, the resort completed US$60 million in upgrades to its 42 luxury beach cottages; the addition of the Kuilima Ballroom and high-tech meeting facilities; and room upgrades. Additional improvements in the resort’s 112 premium guest rooms, which are located on the sixth floor as well as each floor’s end suites, will include ocean-themed elements, such as shell décor; expanded walk-in natural stone showers; and a deep-soaker bathtub that is open to the room.
