The Courtyard by Marriott in Laie is unique because of its isolated location. Laie is technically on the North Shore, but it’s at the northern gateway of Oahu’s western side in a sleepy town that is known for its BYU campus and the correlated fact that you can’t get alcohol anywhere in the district, including the resort. But mormon-law needn’t dissuade you from staying at this property, as it’s a beautiful place that gives you convenient access to a part of the island that no other hotelier on the island can offer.
For one, the Courtyard by Marriott is an 18-minute stroll from Laie Point. This attraction is home to the most intense cliff jump spot on the island, and also offers some of the most distinctive land and seascapes for your camera lens to salivate over. Then there is the Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC) which is literally across the road from the resort, providing you with a place to visit on more than one occasion during your stay. There is so much to see and do at PCC that it can most certainly be a multi-day affair.
And while somewhat isolated from the normal “hot spots” of the island, staying at the Courtyard by Marriott keeps you in convenient proximity to the more popular spots on the North Shore such as Sunset Beach, Banzai Pipeline, Shark’s Cove, Waimea Bay, and Haleiwa Town. Being at the gateway to/from the western side of Oahu also puts you close to some must-visit windward attractions such as Kualoa Ranch and Chinaman’s Hat.
If you’ve been to the island a few times and have done the Waikiki and/or Ko Olina “thing” we absolutely recommend giving the Courtyard by Marriott a try. Like the thousands of other 4.5-star reviewers you will not be disappointed.
