A fun and friendly resort in a vast estate on the island’s North Shore, home of big wave surfing.
This is a traditional beach resort hotel where activities, facilities and entertainment are plentiful and everything is focused on making the most of your time in Oahu. The hotel buildings are set on a rocky promontory and they are surrounded on three sides by the rolling waves of the Pacific Ocean. If you like the sea and getting out and about on the water we couldn’t think of a better place to be. They offer stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking and – of course – surfing and you can even head out on a traditional outrigger canoe. The fun continues on shore too. The resort has its own stables which offers trail rides whatever your ability; the sunset rides are particularly popular for obvious reasons. There are miles of hiking and biking trails and two championship golf courses. If you have a head for heights you can board the hotel’s very own helicopter.
There’s plenty of scope for relaxation too at the Nalu Kinetic Spa which features a menu full of traditional Hawaiian therapies and treatments. A restful Aloha’ Nui Loa massage in the one of the oceanside cabana is an experience not to be missed. As the treatments at the spa, the cuisine here is typically Hawaiian too and created with fresh organic produce and the catch of the day – not only is this farm to table, it’s also ocean to table.
Accommodation comes in a few shapes and sizes here with spacious sea-facing rooms and suites and beach cottages. As the name suggests, these charming rooms, which share a one-storey cottage with five other rooms, are located close to the shore of Turtle Bay. There are also Ocean Villas which feature full kitchens and three of four bedrooms. These are perfect if you are travelling as a family or a group and want a little independence to eat when you please.
