Leveraging Connection

Travel Elevates is fostering a growing global community.

When several industry leaders traveled to Nairobi, Kenya, with Micato Safaris, little did they know that a new initiative to collect funds for a new Computer Learning Center at Harambee Center in Mukuru would lead to a global movement. After this successful pilot program, Travel Elevates was born. Created to replicate the positive impact from that first program in Africa, Travel Elevates projects for 2021 include Human Connection and MarAlliance.

Based in Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit, Human Connections is a non-profit organization that connects local people with international audiences. With the Travel Elevates grant, it will be able to serve both artisans and travelers via virtual learning and partnership development. While the Insight Initiative involves new programming, it also directly furthers Human Connections’ mission to increase empathy and strengthen local communities during the pandemic and beyond.

MarAlliance inspires and enables positive change for threatened marine wildlife, critical habitats, and dependent human communities in Panama, Honduras, and Belize. With the Travel Elevates grant, MarAlliance can now build on its considerable educational work with an innovative and scalable educational strategy to improve education access and equity across key sites in Panama, Honduras, and Belize.

The New Turtle Bay

Dive into the Unexpected at the re-imagined Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu's North Shore.

Debuting this June, O’ahu’s Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore is poised for sophisticated island play. Deeply immersed in the land and culture of O’ahu, the re-imagined retreat strives to capture the quintessential balance of wellness, adventure, and high-end hospitality. Whether you want to perfect a surf session, unwind with a wellness journey, or reconnect with family and friends, expect amenities poised for inspired play.

While staying at the newly renovated Ocean Bungalows, the Pacific Ocean is right outside your door. Elegant, naturalistic design takes its cue from the island’s North Shore. Large sliding glass doors frame brilliant sunsets, while marine life can be viewed from your daybed on the lanai. And though the bungalows are designed to unplug and recharge, the technology is well-designed too. Everything you may need is just a finger’s touch way, including a pre-programmed lighting system.

Featuring delicious dining rooted in nature, Turtle Bay’s open-air restaurants allow the breeze of the sea to tease your senses, while sustainable, seasonal cuisine tempts the palate. The resort’s Kuilima Farm also serves the local community, with an emphasis on education, environment, production, and experience.
