About Us

THE FAIRMONT ORCHID is a tropical oasis nestled on 32 beachfront acres of the Kohala Coast on the Big Island of Hawai‘i. The hotel is part of the 3,200-acre Mauna Lani Resort community and is 25 minutes from the Kona International Airport at Keahole. The Fairmont Orchid offers 540 luxuriously appointed guestrooms with private balconies, a full-service spa, fitness & tennis center, spectacular indoor & outdoor dining venues, heated pools & ocean swimming lagoon, and is adjacent to the championship Francis I‘i Brown Golf Courses.

Our tranquil accommodations on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii let you escape it all in luxury. Imagine waking up to the sound of waves crashing along the Hawaiian shoreline while you plan your day. Or waking each morning to spectacular views of the nearby mountains. And don't forget evenings spent on your lanai overlooking the hotel's gardens and waterfalls. Our Hawaii accommodations are luxurious and our views are unforgettable at The Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii.

Our 538 guest rooms and suites echo the warmth and serenity of the Big Island.

At the beach, meet the native Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles that bask on our shoreline every afternoon. Our Hui Holokai Beach Club Ambassadors cater to your beach comforts by setting up chairs and cabanas with towels and ice water and checking out beach equipment. They also share their knowledge of Hawaii Island’s rich cultural heritage and their Hawaiian legacies.

Don’t miss exquisite oceanfront dining at Brown’s Beach House restaurant and delectable steaks and sushi at Norio’s Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar. Please click here for all of our dining options.

Not to be missed is our memorable Polynesian feast under the stars complete with delicious offerings and a live performance The Gathering of the Kings is held on Saturday evenings at the Plantation Estate.

Relax and rejuvenate at our luxurious Spa Without Walls featuring waterfall massage hale (huts) and breathtaking oceanfront massage cabanas that draw from our island's natural healing mana (power).

Best of the Best

Some of your toughest decisions at Fairmont Orchid, Hawai'i will center around green sea turtles and oceanfront cabanas. What to do first — meet the native sea creatures as they bask on the beach, or indulge in a massage in a thatched-roof hale? Make time for all of it: Visit the pool deck on Friday evenings for stargazing with a local astronomer, paddle the waters in an outrigger canoe, hike through a petroglyph field or simply lounge on a sugary-sand beach. Evenings, listen to local musicians as the sun sets while you dine at the award-winning Brown's Beach House, located just steps from the shore and serving locally grown specialties.

Hotel Tip

Fairmont Orchid Hui Holokai Beach Ambassadors will lead you on a guided walk to ancient petroglyphs nearby.

Good, but not great!

By: Jim


Reviewed on: 21 Oct 2016

Overall, this is a nice hotel on the big island. The setting is great. However, a bit far from food unless eating at the resorts restaurants. Breakfast was nice for a day or two but became a bit monotonous. Everybody was extremely nice throughout. Overall, a nice hotel but not one that blew me away or overly impressed in any facet.

Fairmont Orchid

We began our trip at the Fairmont Orchid, a beautiful hotel. We were greeted by a very friendly staff after a very long travel day and felt immediately relaxed! As we spent the most time at this hotel, we did work with the Concierge to plan a few day drives, per John Chaffin's suggestions. Dinner reservations had been set up by John Chaffin and the Concierge in advance. As we had a few nights open for dinner, I did ask for a few of Rachel's, the Concierge, "local" suggestions. She guided us in the right direction each time! Brown's, at the Fairmont, is a wonderful restaurant, and we were perfectly appointed for our first Hawaiian sunset. "Poolside" (we usually sat near the ocean) service was amazing. Once we met Ed, he remembered us each and every day, and as someone who was born and raised on the Big Island, he was a wealth of local history! Because of Paul Klein and Virtuoso, we had a beautiful ocean upgrade and breakfasts included. Both huge perks!
