Set within 32 acres of gardens, the Fairmont Orchid boasts an impressive panorama on the Kohala Coast. This oceanfront hotel and spa offer restaurants, first-class amenities, and a convenient location for exploring the volcanoes, waterfalls, beaches, and jungle of Hawaii’s Big Island.

The 504 spacious guestrooms and suites offer a calming feel with state-of-the-art technology, marble bathrooms, and sweeping ocean views. Upgrade to Fairmont Gold for dedicated service, a private lounge, and the best views.

Dining options range from the breakfast buffet at Orchid Court, to fine dining at Brown’s Beach House and the new Binchotan offering Asian cuisine.

The resort is set around a lagoon-style pool, while the beach offers a safe haven for Hawaiian green sea turtles to bask on the shoreline. Explore the island, play a round of golf, or be pampered in the Spa Without Walls. Finish the day sipping cocktails and watching the sunset at Luana Lounge.
