In honor of Mother’s and Father’s days, Turtle Bay Resort is offering an upscale vacation experience in one of its recently renovated Beach Cottages.

“We’re wanting to get families out to Oahu’s North Shore,” noted Tom Parke, director of sales and marketing. “With our two golf courses and new spa, it’s an ideal spot for families to get away to. This is a good way for us to kick off spring and summer family travel.”

Throughout May, Mom’s package will include five nights in a Beach Cottage, plus one complimentary breakfast, lunch and dinner for Mom at her choice of the Palm Terrace, Sand Bar or Hang Ten Bar for $2,499. Dining is also available in the resort’s upscale restaurant, 21 Degrees North. However, a surcharge of $21 will apply.

The resort is also offering deluxe oceanview accommodations for five nights at $1,799 per package. Suite upgrades are also available. The same package is extended throughout June for fathers. The offer is for one or per family.

Regarding the Beach Cottages, Parke explained how flexible the accommodations are. “It’s a fantastic product,” he commented. “It’s separate from the main property, and it’s ideal for couples and families. They love the big lawns for picnicking and relaxing. They have more privacy and access to everything.”

Located on the North Shore of Oahu, the 880-acre Turtle Bay Resort recently completed $60 million in renovations. Managed by Benchmark Hospitality, the resort’s accommodations include a 401-room hotel and 42 beachfront cottages. In addition, each cottage recently underwent $150,000 in refurbishment.

The resort is situated on nearly five miles of beach that spans Kawela Bay, Kuilima Cove and Turtle Bay. It is the only resort on Oahu with 36 holes of championship golf, a new health spa, two oceanside pools, riding stables, a full-service tennis center by Peter Burwash International, a Hans Hedemann surf school and 12 miles of oceanfront hiking trails.
