    Guestrooms & Suites

    Set on a peninsula and designed with three wings of guestrooms and suites and 42 private Ocean Bungalows, all accommodations offer guests stunning ocean views. These transformed living spaces were expertly designed by Los Angeles-based interior designer, Dianna Wong. Wong’s design process was guided by a deep respect and gratitude for the land, Hawaiʻi’s natural beauty and the ever-embracing spirit of Aloha and adventure for which the island is best known. Boasting custom wallpaper reminiscent of Hawaiian shirts, and furniture inspired by the simplistic ’70s design, the updated rooms pay homage to Turtle Bay’s status as an icon of the North Shore since its opening in 1972.

    All of the 408 guestrooms and suites were designed with the intention of bringing the outside in, incorporating natural materials such as weathered teak, natural concrete stone, and rattan. Additionally, Wong sourced furnishings made of materials indigenous to Hawaiʻi, including monkeypod tree tables handcrafted by artisans located on the North Shore. These design choices further establish the resort’s overarching ethos; Aloha ʻĀina, a love of and nurturing care for the ancient land.

    Ocean Bungalows

    In addition to 408 guestrooms and suites in the main building, the resort has introduced a new category, The Ocean Bungalows. Grouped in clusters of six, these 42 expansive, private accommodations are just steps from the water, providing unparalleled views and ocean breezes. With towering 15-foot vaulted ceilings, private lanais that open to the living areas, a dedicated concierge and a private pool area for the exclusive use of its guests, the Ocean Bungalows offer a more secluded experience for guests looking for a bit more privacy.

    Resort Dining

    At Turtle Bay, the vision is for guests to leave with memories centered around their culinary experiences that elicit storytelling and keep them coming back for years to come. The resort’s entire food and beverage program has been reconceived by Executive Chef Lyle Kaku, celebrating the local culture and the fresh ingredients grown at the resort’s own on-site Kuilima Farm. Alaia, the resort’s signature dining destination, serves gourmet renditions of classic Hawaiian fare, like Ahi Poke (Sesame soy marinade, ogo, avocado, bubu arare, bonito) and the Pan Roasted Hamachi (wasabi potato, edamame, shiitake mushrooms, tsuyu pan sauce), and Asian-inspired dishes, like Thai Coconut Soup (Galangal, Lemongrass, Hawaiian Hearts of Palm, Shiitake, Cilantro, Chili-Garlic Crunch) and Furikake Seared Ahi (Togarashi Rice Cake, Gochujang Marinated Bok Choy, Miso Aioli, Kabayaki).
