A pineapple a day keeps the worries away, so why not enjoy your pineapple in our signature Mai Tai?
The Mai Tai is a staple at bars around the world and one of our guests' favorite cocktails to enjoy while watching the sunset.
But where did the Mai Tai originate from? Victor J. Bergeron claims to have invented the Mai Tai in 1944 at his restaurant, Trader Vic's, in Oakland, California. It is said that the name Mai Tai was inspired by maita'i, the Tahitian word for "good" or "excellence".
Well, we have an excellent Mai Tai recipe for you to make and savor at home. We promise you’ll experience aloha in every sip. You have to! It’s created by Mr. ALOHA himself, Dennis.
The North Shore is known for its beautiful beaches, epic surf and friendly residents. But did you know it’s also known for its world famous shrimp trucks?
Here are three North Shore Oahu shrimp trucks and shacks we recommend you take a shrimp stop at next time you visit us at Turtle Bay. All of them are only about a five minute drive from your hotel room. You could also rent bikes from the North Shore Outpost located near our tennis courts if you do not have a vehicle.
