    Hi BDW Brides!  I just got back from a lovely vacation at Turtle Bay Resort and thought I should start a thread for all of our Turtle Bay brides!

     

    If you are thinking about getting married in Hawaii, Turtle Bay Resort will not disappoint! The resort is on a tip of land so EVERY single room has an ocean view.  Our room overlooked the pool on the west side of the resort.  They are currently going through a remodel (which wasn't a problem at all during our visit) and all of the rooms should be complete by Spring this year! 

     

     

    I was lucky enough to meet with Pura who took me on a tour and showed me every single ceremony and reception location on site.  They are more than happy to work with every couple, learn their budget, and choose the best spot for them.  Locations include: Kuilima Cove and Point, Kahuku Terrace, The Wedding Chapel, the Stables Lawn and Beach, and the 18th tee.  While walking around, I thought it would be a hard choice for brides because each location is unique but just as beautiful as the next.  Special Note: Turtle Bay Resort is the ONLY resort in Hawaii that was granted permission from the Department of Land and Natural Resources to service beach weddings decorated with arches and chairs.

    You can't beat their beautiful sunsets!!

      I am so happy you started this thread! I am getting married at Turtle Bay in June and being that I have never been there I was so nervous about what to expect. My ceremony will be at Stables Beach and the reception at Kuilima Cove. Did you go to those location sites? I really dont know what to expect. Please help!

        I wish I could go back, it is sooo beautiful! I'm sure you know that they are currently remodeling so some rooms and restaurants are closed, but it should be complete by your wedding AND you'll get to enjoy the newly designed rooms which will be amazing.

         

        Like I said above, the resort is surrounded by water... every direction you look you see the ocean.  Can't get much better than that!

         

        I went to both the Stables Beach and the Kuilima Cove, both amazing locations.  The one thing about the beach is that if it's high tide, they may not be able to do a ceremony there.  However, they always have a back up and I believe the back up in that situation is to move you to the lawn right above the beach.  Don't worry, you'll still have an amazing view of the ocean, it's still only feet away.

         

        I think it's great that you are moving the reception to Kuilima Cove, that way you'll see two different sides of the resort.  The view from the cove couldn't be any better!  Your pictures are going to be amazing.

         

        The food was really great, we enjoyed Surfer The Bar, Ola, and Lei Leis.  My husband and I loved how you could either have a quiet night near the ocean at Ola's, OR if you are interested in being a little more lively, Surfer The Bar has live music several nights a week.  Of course, Surfer The Bar has amazing views of the ocean as well and we even saw several whales jumping out of the water!

         

        Have you ever been to the North Shore? I really enjoyed the laid back feel of the North Shore, away from the hustle of Waikiki.  My hubby and I are huge fans of LOST, so it was fun to see where several scenes from the show were shot. 

         

        Haleiwa Town is a short drive away in case your guests want to try out restaurants or do a little shopping outside of the resort.

         

        How long are you staying at Turtle Bay?  Will you be going somewhere else for a Honeymoon? Let me know how else I can help!

          Hi Alyssa! Thanks for all the info. It must have been so beautiful. I have never been to Hawaii so it will be the first foe myself, fiance, & all of our guests. We will be there for a week & will be staying at Turtle Bay for our honeymoon as well. How far is it from the airport? We are renting a car so will be traveling around Oahu. I didnt know abou the high tide situation at Stables Beach. Hopefully it will be low tide in the morning for our wedding. Did you see any weddings while you were there?

           

          How was the weather? I heard it gets windy at the North Shore. How was the temperature like throughout the day? How was the pool & beach there?
