You can save money on Oahu's North Shore at the area's only resort while it puts finishing touches on a makeover.
Turtle Bay Resort has a fourth night free deal with savings calculated at 25% a night during a four-night stay in a deluxe or premier ocean view room. Based on room rates I found on available July and September dates, savings will be $275 or more.
The deal is based on availability and subject to blackout dates, such as Christmas and New Year's. The $35 daily resort fee ($36.65 with tax) is not discounted. It provides for in-room wi-fi, free local calls, self-parking, ukulele and hula lessons, short-term rentals of snorkels or volleyballs, etc. Payment must be made in full 14 days before arrival and is nonrefundable.
During the $45-million renovation, 410 ocean view guest rooms and suites in the main building and 42 beach cottages were updated. Finishing touches are still being applied to the ocean villa condos.
"We also planted a 59,000-square-foot native plant and rock garden on all lower rooftops – an effort that enhances views, and will double the lifespan of the roofing materials to two decades, as well as lower energy use," Danna Holck, general manager, said by email.
