Tropical bliss. This was my third stay at the Fairmont Orchid and it was wonderful, as expected. Upon arriving to the Orchid, the lobby provides a view over the pools and grounds and out into the ocean. Palm trees, koi ponds, waterfalls and cabanas dot the landscape, but after the long flight from Portland my first desire is to sink into the cushioned furniture of the Luana Lounge to enjoy a delicious Hawaiian cocktail with my family while we soak up the scenery and the beautiful setting sun. I go out of my way to choose vacation destinations based on where Fairmont is because if they have a resort there, it's probably a very special place; the Orchid is in keeping with my expectations. Elegant appointments, lovely restaurants that utilize quality ingredients, down pillows on request, enjoyable activities, and a real sense of just getting away from it all. Upon arrival, I feel whisked into another world where every moment is relaxing and enjoyable. I have no opportunity to become annoyed because if I voice a concern it is immediately addressed with an accommodation that exceeds my expectations. Staff seem empowered to make guests happy and the staff themselves seem happy. For our family's first visit to the Orchid in 2009, we brought our young boys. We came without the kids in 2015, and for this 2017 visit we brought my now teenage boys and their grandmother. The experience all three times was the same; perfect bliss. Kids love the pools and the lagoon. Adults love the pools and lagoon. I love the lagoon and enjoy it most from a cabana rental which provides shade from the sun and also helps to buffer the trade winds that can sometimes be a little strong. There is plenty to do on the Big Island, and in earlier visits we have left the Orchid grounds to explore the Island. This time around, I was content to stay at the resort for most of my stay. The snorkeling is wonderful and I've decided there's no need to look for a better beach somewhere else. Thank you Fairmont Orchid staff for delivering my family and I another wonderful vacation.

We had a fantastic stay - the highlight of our Hawaii adventure. The room was well appointed, the ground of the hotel beautiful. We booked a Garden View room, as one of the cheaper rooms it was still fantastic. We were ground floor giving easy access to the grass which our toddler loved, and only a short walk to the pool bar/ restaurants. The pool was AMAZING! The staff were extremely warm and welcoming, always had a smile and time for a hello. We appreciated the free self serve parking, particularly having paid $50 p/d at another hotel. We've stayed in Fairmont Hotels before and this one was a real highlight for us. We will be back, thank you!

Great hotel! It is a perfect size resort. Not too big, not too small. Excellent pool area. Beach was very swimmable, with gentle waves. Amazing sunsets from the property. Pull up a chair by the outdoor massage huts and bring a bottle of wine for an amazing sunset. This is a very romantic hotel. You will see more couples holding hands there then any other hotel I visited. Breakfast buffet was amazing. Rooms were very nice, if not memorable. This is a special place and I highly recommend. Very nice supermarket just a mile or less away to load up on provisions, liquor etc. Make sure you try some Musubi on the island-buy it any 7-11 or gas station. Try Umekes for a fun night out in Kona (about 25 minutes away) and some poke bowls. Just wait until you make the drive from the main road on the island to the hotel. It's like you are on another planet, with the lava flows etc. Happy travels.

This hotel is very well laid out and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. This is our second time at this hotel. The food is very good and the breakfast buffet has lots of great options. Our fav part about this hotel is the pool and the lagoon. We were disappointment that we were unable to swim with the turtles this time. But is is pretty incredible to swim with them. We will be back.
