Turtle Bay Resort

Turtle Bay Resort, the premier hotel along Oahu’s North Shore, is nearing completion of a redo of its guest accommodations.

All 410 rooms in the main tower of Turtle Bay Resort are getting makeovers -- many are already done -- and completion of the multimillion-dollar project is expected this fall.

Guests will find new bedding, fixtures and furnishings in the rooms and remodeled bathrooms that feature walk-in showers as well as new tile and new vanities.

Room rates at Turtle Bay Resort vary by date and room style. I found Epic Oceanview Rooms with a king bed starting at $263.20 a night for early October arrivals when I checked last week. (Rates may no longer be available.)

The resort sits on 840 acres along a stretch of coast called “the seven-mile miracle” and is known for its cultural offerings. “Talk Story + Film” is a good example. On Wednesday evenings through Oct. 9, the hotel’s Surfer lounge will host special presentations that are a combination of Hawaii’s storytelling traditions with the showing of island-themed documentaries.

On Oct. 2 at Turtle Bay, Doug Walker will screen and talk about “The Lost & Found Collection.” In 2007, at a Los Angeles flea market, Walker purchased several boxes containing 30,000 black-and-white negatives of surfers. The discovery began his quest to find both the surfers and the photographers who captured their images.

Admission is $10 with the proceeds going to a charity of the speaker’s choosing.
