Turtle Bay Wants to Add 5 Hotels


The Turtle Bay Resort is trying to get approval to add up to five hotels to their property on the north shore of the island of Oahu. There are currently 500 hotel rooms and condomimium units at the resort and this expansion would add up to 3500 more. The permit application includes provisions for building a hotel at

Two hotels would be built on either side of the existing Turtle Bay Resort, two would be built on Kawela Bay, which is next to Turtle Bay, and one hotel would be built at Kahuku Point.

Plus: more jobs, which are needed for former sugar and pineapple plantation workers, expecially with Del Monte recently announcing they will cease pineapple operations in Hawaii.

Minus: Hotels will add to north shore traffic. Hawaiians want to keep the country country.

The 800 acre property includes the Turtle Bay Hotel and approximately half of Kawela Bay.

Kawela Bay, which is next to Turtle Bay. In October of 2005, the Kuilima Resort Company and resort owner Oaktree Capital Management arranged $400 million in laons, and two months later they applied for a subdivision permit from the city Department of Planning and Permitting.

The City and County of Honolulu's Department of Planning and Permitting will make a decision on the resorts permit application on April 26, 2006.

The original Turtle Bay Resort opened in May of 1972 as "Del Webb's Kuilima Resort and Country Club".

The project will be difficult to stop because of an agreement that was signed between the city and the resort owners in 1986, an agreement that had no end date..

Local residents are concerned that the north shore will become another Waikiki.
