Turtle Bay Invites Guests to Relax in the Outdoor Serenity of the North Shore with “Unwind with Equine,” a New Spa and Stables Experience


NORTH SHORE, OAHU, HI (Oct. 19, 2012) – Turtle Bay Resort, the only destination resort on Oahu’s fabled North Shore, has combined the best of its spa and stables programs with the serene beauty of the resort’s oceanside setting, creating an unforgettable private relaxation and rejuvination experience.

Turtle Bay’s new “Unwind with Equine” package takes guests on two horseback journeys through the resort’s stunning 840-acre oceanfront property, along the sandy coastline and a forest of ironwood trees to a secluded oasis for yoga and lunch experiences. Before riding, guests are welcomed with an exclusive selection of premium spa amenities, and are treated to an introductory grooming session at the resort’s stables, where a unique bond is formed as one of the friendly and well-trained horses “picks” the rider.

On the first ride, a Turtle Bay Resort Spa Luana wellness instructor will lead a relaxing one-hour session of yoga right on the beach; followed by a private lunch at a special location on the second ride. Guests are also provided with a GoPro video camera to capture their once-in-a-lifetime memories.

“The resort’s five miles of North Shore beachfront provide guests with unparalleled experiences of Kawela Bay, Turtle Bay and windward views of the South Pacific – all enhanced by the serenity of traveling on horseback,” said Sierra Shore, director of the resort’s full-service Spa Luana. “This new package, when combined with the resort’s expansive and secluded location, allows guests to uniquely experience our yoga and cuisine offerings – pairing the best in outdoor adventure, privacy and relaxation.”

Starting at $555 per guest, the new “Unwind with Equine” package includes a three-night stay at Turtle Bay Resort; a welcome package including cowboy hat, spa amenities and sunscreen; an introduction and grooming session with a Turtle Bay stables horse; two horseback rides; a one-hour private oceanside yoga session; lunch; and a GoPro camera rental.

The specialists at Turtle Bay’s Spa Luana deeply understand the importance of “pono” – the Hawaiian recognition of the harmony between all facets of well-being. The first step in achieving this is to relax, and at Spa Luana that means signature services derived from natural remedies; an enhanced wellness program; a new menu of body and skin care treatments that take advantage of the freshest organic ingredients; and traditionally inspired massage therapies. In ocean-view treatment rooms or a private seaside cabana, Spa Luana offers a serene getaway in one of the most spectacular settings in Hawaii.

Turtle Bay delivers an experience that no other Oahu resort can match – guided tours of the surrounding property by horseback and horse-drawn wagon. From honeymooning couples to family reunions, Turtle Bay’s stables offer a variety of sightseeing options. Stroll or trot along oceanfront trails and seaside pathways on well-trained and friendly horses. Listen to the sounds of birds and breezes through ironwood trees and the roar of crashing surf and swaying palms. Exploring the paths at Turtle Bay Resort is a serene way to experience Hawaii's beauty and enjoy some well-deserved moments of tranquility.
