The Turtle Bay resort is located on a remote outcropping of stunning Kawela Bay. A destination wedding here would be one of romantic seclusion, with plenty of opportunities to explore the tropical surroundings. Situated on a northern tip of Oahu, each wedding package has a specific wedding ceremony location as its starting point, and every detail is specially curated to the resort with Hawaiian culture at the forefront. Beyond the upscale beachy-chic rooms you’ll find numerous restaurants, a luxe spa, multiple pools (some saline), and everything else needed to make your destination wedding unforgettable. A Turtle Bay Resort wedding offers a level of solitude and romance unmatched by other hotels on the island.
Ceremony locations are truly unique and even extend beyond the grounds making your Turtle Bay Resort wedding exceedingly beautiful. From Kahuku’s public terrace that overlooks a surfer filled beach, to the horse stables lawn that features some furry friends that want to be in your photos, and even multiple beach options.
This resort may be better suited for couples who don’t want to leave the property. A car is necessary to explore off-site activities, and the closest town nearby is Haleiwa at about a 25-minute drive.
Unlike many Hawaiian resorts we offer, this resort actually has dinner receptions included in some of the wedding packages. This adds extra value for those wanting a Hawaiian destination wedding. Contact an agent to learn more.

“Turtle Bay is the perfect golf weekend getaway. Two challenging, well maintained courses set in an aesthetically gorgeous property famous on Oahu’s North Shore. Albatross choose this location for nesting as it is secluded and mostly commercially untouched. You may see them cavorting around while playing the Palmer Course, and for the sake of tranquility, please refrain from approaching or otherwise unnecessarily disturbing these majestic creatures. The hotel offers a full range of amenities and services. Our room was beautifully appointed and the view of the expansive Pacific, breathtaking. Food service and quality were stellar both in the Hotel proper and at the golf side restaurant. Interesting culinary fare cooked to order and served with a smile. Try horseback riding, snorkeling, paddle boarding or dancing under the stars while you are out there as well… You will not be disappointed.” – Jolyn T. 4/19
“We stayed at Turtle Bay a month ago and we couldn’t ask for a better hotel experience in such a beautiful place as Hawaii. The resort itself is set right on the beach, and the balconies are facing the ocean, so you get a beautiful view every morning. Our rooms were very clean from the moment we entered, and we also appreciated the housekeepers for their consideration of waiting for the guests to leave before they cleaned the room. The hotel staff was very professional and knowledgeable, and they very politely accommodated us with no trouble when we needed it. If you’re ever interested in booking a tour or going on an adventure during your stay, the employees at the Guide Post are very knowledgeable and prompt to answer your questions or assist you with any other matter. Generally, we found this hotel to be very peaceful and cozy at all times of the day since there was hardly any loud noise you would hear besides the beautiful music they play in the lobby. We especially enjoyed the live music in the pool area and eating in the open air near the ocean listening to music! Everyone was very friendly and courteous to make sure we had an unforgettable stay, which we did! In short, just book your reservation at Turtle Bay, because I guarantee you will have a great experience.” – Tina A. 9/17
“This place is awesome.. we stayed in an ocean Villa. It was very nice and relaxing. The restaurants, golf courses, and pool bar are great. There’s a nice calm bay to go swimming or snorkeling. I hope I get a chance to stay here again sometime” – Justin S. 9/17
“The resort staff is friendly and nice. There are only a few on site restaurants but they are decent. If you want more variety there are a number of food trucks nearby. The rooms are a nice and the ocean view rooms do have a great view. The decor is a little dated though and the hotel doesn’t feel as modern as others on the island. Overall it’s a more relaxed experience that could use a little updating.” – Frank F. 8/17
