I'd always remember my first visit to Big Island, thanks to the weekend I spent at Fairmont Orchid. We got upgraded to an Oceanside Suite, which made our stay all the more memorable! The Orchid buffet is a wonderful way to start the day, followed by a lazy afternoon at the secluded beach!

A grand property, the rooms and bathrooms are spacious and well kept but you can tell they have been around for awhile. Our room was very pleasant, clean and comfortable. Bedding is luxe and room was quiet, I suppose that has to do with the concrete construction of all the walls and floors. I liked having a separate tub and shower. Orchid is located perfectly right on the beach and the grounds are beautiful and maintained in an excellent fashion. The waterfalls, Koi ponds, plants and pool and beach areas are really first class and enjoyable. Only issue I have is the remoteness and distance from any real choices of shopping and dining, which is located in Kailua-Kona, about 30 miles away. The staff are extremely hospitable, helpful and friendly. We especially appreciated the warm welcome we received from "Natasha" at the President's Club desk and the outstanding help and advice from "James", a terrific Concierge.

What can I say about paradise! Our niece and her husband honeymooned at this resort last October and LOVED it. We had been on a small adventure cruise (34 passengers), and wanted to relax at the end of our trip, and four nights at the Fairmont Orchid were the perfect ticket. The beach, the snorkeling, the green turtles, the service, the room were outstanding. The buffet breakfast is to die for. Yes, this hotel is expensive, but if you believe that you only live once, this is money well spent.

We didn’t stay at the resort but came for pupu’s on the terrace overlooking the pool and the ocean. The barbecue sandwiches were fantastic. My wife especially liked the Lilikoi margarita’s. It is the third time we have been there and each time has been special. Opens at 5 so get there early to get a good seat to see the setting sun. Lovely walk on the grounds and to the beach afterwards.

I've stayed here many times for work and it's alway pleasant. One of the very few hotels that actually have surf right in front of the property beach. The hotel provides boards and other water sports equipment. Beach volleyball on property too! You're kind of limited to restaurant options, but the hotel is located near shops and restaurants and there is a shuttle to go to and from the hotel. My favorite part of the rooms are their bathrooms and toiletries. Always, pleasant and looking forward to my stay at this resort hotel.
