#ThirstyThursday: Dennis' Top Shelf Mai Tai


Turtle Bay Mai Tai

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.

#ThirstyThursday: Guava Cupcake

Turtle Bay Resort Guava Cupcake cocktail

Pineapple, light rum and coconut cream… oh my!

There’s something about a Pina Colada that takes you away to a tropical paradise in one simple sip. But what if it was possible to make your pina colada experience even more incredible? Believe us, it is!

We are taking one our fan faves up a notch and giving it a special touch - guava.

This is one of our bartender Vince's favorite cocktails to share with Turtle Bay guests who visit him at The Point Sunset & Pool Bar.


“I call it, the Guava Cupcake because it tastes like guava cake to me. It’s fluffy and delightful,” said Vince.


Three Stops for Shrimp on Oahu's North Shore

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.
