The Fairmont Orchid is set in a U shape so guests can make the most of the sea views. And it’s a wonderful design idea because this hotel, overlooking Pauoa Bay, boasts an impressive panorama. Situated on a lush 32-acre site, it’s a property surrounded by exciting activities and the ideal place for a relaxing beach or adventure holiday.
The 540 guest rooms and suites are traditionally designed with spacious interiors and marble bathrooms. The Fairmont Gold is worth upgrading to for the exclusive lounge and sea vista.
The lagoon style pool, set amidst terraces and lawns, is a fabulous place to relax, and the peaceful Spa Without Walls is great for some pampering amongst waterfalls and tropical gardens. For those feeling active there’s a fitness centre, 36-hole golf course and a ten court tennis centre next door. There’s also a children’s club that offers activities and watersports.
The sea here is not just for kayaking, snorkelling and paddle boarding; Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles bask on the shoreline every afternoon. Watch them up close and personal, or marvel from afar at the oceanfront dining options of Brown’s Beach House or Norio’s Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar.
