Spa day for my mom, sister, and myself. The three of us had lomi lomi massages in separate oceanside cabanas situated right next to the ocean. The only sounds heard were of the waves on the shore. I was originally concerned about what the temperature in the cabanas would be like but with the gentle breezes, I was very comfortable.... More

I was really looking forward to my treatment (esp given all the positive reviews here) but boy I am so disappointed. First I booked for a treatment and was reminded of the treatment the day before but guess what?! When I showed up I was told they don't offer that treatment anymore but here's another treatment you can do. Well... More

This is the apex in massage facilities on an island that reeks of therapy oils....in part it has to do with unparalleled massage areas,set amid waterfalls,salt water pools and meandering gardens. With the scene set,near the waterfall,my therapist,a more mature professional,spent scant time chatting and eased my hiking aches from neck, back and thighs. She was superb,with delicate yet volcanic... More

The three things that made this spa experience outstanding was 1) my massage treatment took place outdoors under a private cabana that had a view of the ocean, 2) the ocean was a few feet away so the relaxing sounds of the Pacific were the real deal, and 3) service was quietly attentive, perfect for a memorable spa experience.

if you are like me and have a hard time to stop thinking, this is the place. you will not hear anyone talking next door if you choose to have a massage next to the water falls. if you love the sound of the water you will love this experience. it is expensive (80 mins - $240) but what a... More

Took my daughter who is visiting, to the Spa without walls at the Fairmont Orchid. We chose Oceanside treatments. The spa has a sauna, very nice facilities for showering and changing once you are done. . I had the Alii experience and it was fantastic. Judith was professional, friendly, and the most amazing massage therapist. Truly, the best massage I... More

I make it a point to hit the spa wherever I travel. I've been to some great destination spas. This isn't really a destination spa, but for a hotel spa on the Big Island, it's pretty great. You can book your treatments inside, but the big treat is to go outdoors. You'll be guided down a beautiful landscaped path to... More

I am staying at the Fairmont Orchid. Called twice this morning from my hotel room. No one answered. The second time, I left a voice mail along with my name, room number and mobile number. I inquired about availability for a same day appointment. They didn't even bother to call, even to let me know whether they could accommodate my... More

My wife received the oceanfront swedish massage and a spa pedicure. Upon checkin, she was guided to a boutique type area for female customers consisting of a large changing room with lockers, sauna, showers, vanities and refreshments. She was then walked to her oceanfront bungalow where the massage took place. The location was next to none and the therapist provided... More

unlike my cousin who has had many massages this was the first of many more to come for me.Prior to your massage you have the option to relax in the waiting room, out side in the patio or in the steam room (arrive a little early). They also had refreshments available...coffe, tea, lemon slices in iced water. My cousin and... More
