Exceeded wow factor

Property is beautiful, staff is awesome, and room was fantastic!!!! Listening to their nightly music on the lanai looking out over the pools and ocean is a perfect way to see the sun set in paradise. We stayed in the Gold section which included breakfast and afternoon snacks...they were worth every penny!

I love Fairmont Orchid

Do yourself a favor and stay here. Great staff that know you by name on day 1. The spa is awesome. Get a massage while you're there. The rooms are beautiful. Every room in the place has a great view. Tell them you are honeymooning if thats the case. Several great restaurants with wonderful food and tasty drinks, especially the Hale Kai. Best sunset view for dinner on the beach. The landscaping is as beautiful as the island it's built on. I can't say enough good about the Fairmont Orchid and staff. The price is very reasonable for all the amazing amenities.

Beautiful Fairmont Orchid

Wonderful, friendly staff & well maintained property. A must stay property on The Big Island. Take the morning hikes with the staff - free & very interesting! Had a partial view room & it was a beautiful view of both the golf course & the ocean.

Fairmont Orchid

One of best places I have stayed at in Hawaii. Rooms are much bigger than most places. Bathrooms are a lot larger and nicer than most. Grounds are what a resort should be. They have there own private lagoon that is the home to many exotic fish and honu (green sea turtles). The lagoon is calm most of the time making for easy snorkeling. I would stay there again!If you want to save a little money there is a Foodland supermarket on the property that has some of the best fried chicken and sandwiches I've had.Maria at the front desk took care of our needs with exceptionable service. Mahalo Maria !

Fairmont Orchid - Always THE BEST, and a home away from home

Just had another wonderful five nights stay at the Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island of Hawaii. Been coming here since the Ritz-Carlton Mauna Lani and Starwood managed Orchid at Mauna Lani days, and by far, the Fairmont experience has been the best and continuously consistent.We stayed mostly in the North Tower on past visits, and this was only the second time we stayed in the South Tower (first time was back in 2002 when our daughter just made two years old), and were assigned to #1557. What a fabulous spacious one bedroom suite with awesome oceanfront view, full bathroom with the master bedroom, half bathroom off the living room, full amenities such as coffee and hot water makers, bath toiletries (Le Labo Rose 31 made exclusively for Fairmont) and so convenience for what we usually do which is hangout at the beach in one of the cabanas in addition to numerous trips to the huge resort pool.Room was clean, well appointed, and the House Keeping team did an excellent job taking care of our suite throughout our stay. Resort ground always so well manicured and maintained with plenty of space all around so even during high occupancy times and/or with incentive groups in-house, everyone will be able to relax and find his/her piece of paradise (something we could not find in Maui at the Fairmont Kea Lani this past March). There are many dining/food & beverage options on property in addition to restaurants at nearby The Shops at Mauna Lani, next door at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel which can be accessed via the resort's complimentary shuttle service. For those with rental cars, there are many dining options off property in the Hapuna resorts area, up in Waimea, and down the road at the Waikoloa Resorts area. Dining at various food & beverage facilities on property was great in terms of food quality and service but in-room-dining offers have been scaled down to bare-bones which was a disappointment compared to what we have seen in the past.Visiting the Fairmont Orchid is probably one of the top five things we look forward to every year (some years we were blessed with more than one opportunity to visit), and each visit felt like coming back to a home away from home. No other hotels/resorts/destinations gave us this unique feeling and we came to the realization years back that this is due to the wonderful staff of the resort, back and front of house. Michael at the Front Desk was friendly and professional, food & beverage staff and the many others we ran into throughout the day were always proper and friendly, Derek, Rachel, Nicole, Ailee at the Kahakai Bar, Amon, Noris and others at the beach activities shack have always been so welcoming and kind to us on all our visits. We truly appreciate everyone's excellent service and Aloha spirit, and look forward to seeing everyone again soon.
