Turtle Bay Resort

57-091 Kamehameha Hwy., Kahuku, Hawaii, 96731, USA

Sprawling over 840 acres of natural landscape on the edge of Kuilima Point in Kahuku, the Turtle Bay Resort boasts spacious guest rooms averaging nearly 500 square feet, with lanai that showcase stunning peninsula views. In winter, when the big waves roll ashore, you get a front-row seat for the powerful surf. The 42 sumptuous oceanfront beach cottages have Brazilian-walnut floors, teak rockers on the lanai, and beds you can sink right into while listening to the sounds of the ocean. A 2014 renovation updated most guest rooms, added solar panels, opened an 11,000 square-foot spa, and added two new restaurants. Turtle Bay has a Hans Heidemann Surf School, horse stables, and the only 36-hole golf facility on Oahu to keep you busy. There are two swimming pools, one with an 80-foot waterslide, and an entire cove to play in. While out exploring Turtle Bay's 12 miles of nature trails, don't be surprised if you suddenly find yourself Lost. The hit ABC television series often used the resort's beaches, coves, and natural forests for location filming.
