Turtle Bay Resort gets the nod from our readers once again as the best resort for locals. With kamaaina programs such as the Escape Club, it’s no wonder. For $219 per year, local residents receive a complimentary one-night stay and round of golf, as well as year-long benefits such as VIP access to events and discounts on resort activities, dining and the salon. To date, the club has gained 3,525 members since its inception two years ago. 57-091 Kamehameha Highway, 293-6000, www.turtlebayresort.com.
