Hawaii’s Turtle Bay Resort Will Reopen in July

The property on Oahu’s North Shore has completed an extensive redesign. 


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 classes. 

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 trails.
