About the Setting

For this issue’s Women’s and Men’s fashion features, HILuxury did a little bit of time traveling—back to an era filled with what is now considered vintage HawaiÊ»i fashions. Some of the pieces seen on these pages are true vintage wear; others are vintage-inspired. But, each setting is the real deal.

We found the untouched coastline and pristine greenery seen in these pages at Turtle Bay Resort and Kahuku Farms.

Turtle Bay Resort, the North Shore’s only resort, is a destination that celebrates adventurous travelers. This has never been truer than today, as Turtle Bay Resort honors off-the-beaten-path discovery through an unrivaled array of fresh experiences, served with a complete rebranding and a major, resort-wide renovation totaling $45 million.

Kawela Bay is just one part of the legendary scenery to be found on Turtle Bay Resort's 840 acres (photo courtesy Turtle Bay Resort).

Guests can revel in some of the resort’s legendary scenery at the new “outdoor living room,” The Point, which has been completely remodeled and expanded, and which now includes a stage and high-quality surround sound for live music and entertainment. Designed for kicking back and socializing near the pool and shoreline, The Point is known for its expertly crafted cocktails and locally sourced cuisine, unrivaled sunset views and close proximity to Kuilima Point.

Kahuku Farms, a family-run farm that spans three generations, provided us with lush backgrounds: banana patches and fields of flowers. Located off Kamehameha Highway, visitors can stop in every day, except Tuesday, for a farm tour on a tractor-pulled wagon ride. Or, visit the Farm Café for a smoothie, coffee, panini, pizza or ice cream. (Do not miss the grilled banana bread topped with ice cream and the farm’s vanilla caramel and vanilla haupia) You can even take home some Kahuku Farms goodies, such as Kahuku Vanilla Caramel or bath and body products made from ingredients found at the farm.
