The low-rise, simple white stucco entrance to Shangri-La gives no hint of the riches inside. The façade, like the reticent Doris Duke, keeps its secrets hidden from prying eyes.
If the goal of one’s vacation is to find a balance between complete relaxation and local adventure, the Four Seasons Oahu does not disappoint, providing a level of detail-oriented luxury unlike that of any other accommodation on the island.
Oahu is known for its North Shore, which is home to the “seven-mile miracle” of legendary coastline and surf. Turtle Bay Resort sits on the northernmost point, less than an hour’s drive from the airport and a far cry from the bright lights and bustling beaches of Honolulu.
The beach promises a full day of leisure. Whether you spend it relaxing on the shore or splashing in the waves, these five tropical destinations will accommodate any level of intensity.
