To the untrained eye, this may look like a park bench under a tree by the ocean. However, the more astute will immediately recognize it as an 'automatic blood pressure lowering device' designed for folks like you and I.
The Turtle Bay Resort is the major hotel on the North Shore of Oahu in Hawaii. The resort is about a 50 minute drive from Honolulu, between Kahuku, Hawaii to the east and Kawela Bay to the west. The resort owns 858 acres at Turtle Bay, and features 375 rooms, 26 suites, and 42 Beach Bungalows. The hotel was built with three wings on a small peninsula which provides every room with an ocean view. Resort facilities include two golf courses, 10 tennis courts, pools, and a spa. It has a variety of restaurants and sits just north of the Kuilima Estates condominium complexes
The hotel opened in May 1972 as Del Webb's Kuilima Resort Hotel and Country Club. In the Hawaiian language kui lima means "joining hands". It was built by casino developer Del Webb to be the first casino on the island; a gaming initiative was on the ballot in the mid-1970s but it did not pass. Hyatt took over the property until August 1983 when Hilton Hotels & Resorts took over. It was then renamed "Turtle Bay Golf and Tennis Resort".
It was raining turtles and crabs when we arrived, but within a few hours the front blew through and the sun came out again.
If (when) you get to O'ahu, give this special 'blood pressure lowering device' a try, you'll like it!
