The Fairmont Orchid, Big Island

Indulge yourself at the sumptuous Fairmont Orchid resort on the northwest coast of Big Island. In a style inspired by the local culture with an added dash of decadence, the Fairmont Orchid resort is the ideal location to relax and enjoy the tropical, volcanic island. Spoil yourself in one of the 540 top-notch rooms or suites and allow yourself to completely unwind.


Set on the oceanfront of the Kohala Coast, a 45 minute drive from Kona International airport, you can frolic on the immaculate white beaches with turtles or have a round of golf at the adjacent 36-hole golf course. Fill your time with water sports and try your hand at traditional weaving crafts. You won’t tire of the Fairmont Orchid resort, but make sure you save a day or two for exploring the rest of this utopic island. You can take a botanical tour and archaeological hike, or visit the home of the ancient Hawaiian King Kamehameha the Great and witness the volcanoes which formed this pearl in the ocean.

Your room

The 540 rooms of the Fairmont Orchid resort are beautiful and elegant with decorations inspired by the local culture. Each is spacious with fantastic views of the resort gardens or dreamy, blue ocean. For added opulence, take advantage of one of the suites which have even more space to chill in, luscious marble bathrooms and panoramic views.
