More About Fairmont Orchid

Situated amongst 32 acres of beautiful gardens fronted by a sandy beach and tranquil lagoon, the Fairmont Orchid enjoys a glorious setting on the Kohala Coast.

You can simply relax on the beach or take part in some of the guest activities on offer including cultural hikes, canoe paddling, stand-up paddle boarding or snorkelling. There are 10 tennis courts and golfers will appreciate the Francis H. I’i Brown course which was designed to have two distinct 18-hole complexes, both providing an interesting challenge and magnificent views.

The resort has a fitness centre and 10,000 square foot free-form pool plus the unique Spa Without Walls with eight private outdoor waterfall huts, six oceanfront cabanas and three indoor treatment rooms where you can enjoy spa treatments. Other facilities include indoor and outdoor relaxation areas, steam rooms, saunas and a full service salon.

Dining is a pleasure at the Fairmont Orchid with fine dining dishes at Brown’s Beach House, relaxed poolside dining at Hale Kai and the ever-popular Norio’s Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar. The Luana Lounge is a great place to enjoy some island-inspired appetisers, your favourite drink and take in the nightly Hawaiian entertainment.
