Turtle Bay Resort, on Oahu’s North Shore in Hawaii, is set to reopen in
July following a head-to-toe renovation that lasted 15 months.
The transformation, spearheaded by architect Dianna Wong,
celebrates Hawaii’s natural beauty by incorporating materials such as reclaimed
wood, organic fabrics and hand-stitched leather throughout the 411-room property.
Upgrades include a new lobby featuring large-scale works of
art by Hawaii-based artists. The property’s 42 seaside cottages have been renovated
and renamed the Ocean Bungalows. Construction is underway on a new pool that
will be exclusively for guests staying in the bungalows.
Turtle Bay’s new food-and-beverage outlets include a lobby
bar, a lobby café and the resort’s main restaurant, Alaia, which will showcase
the North Shore’s sustainable agriculture, including the resort’s own farm.
A new terraced pool deck includes an adults-only pool and
a redesigned family-friendly pool with luxurious cabanas and a pool bar. The
Surf House is a new addition that serves as a both a retail shop and space for
presentations and talks. A new lounge with pool and ocean views, the Club, is
reserved exclusively for Vista Level guests, who also receive upgraded
amenities and services such as access to cooking or mixology
The resort features two golf courses (including one designed
by Arnold Palmer); an 11,000-square-foot spa and fitness center;
horse stables; cultural gallery; tennis courts, and hiking and mountain biking
