The hotel is beautiful with landscaping and palm trees on the ocean side, the fountain in front and orchids everywhere. We enjoyed snorkeling in the lagoon. Our room had a great balcony for sitting, reading, and although a partial view, had a great view of the grounds, pool and o

Great services and pool area for a Hawaiian resort. Rooms are great and so is the help. Food is good and the coffee shop has very inexpensive food for a resort. Breakfast was free for our room. The car parkers were very good and you can call to get the car. It was always waiting.

We had a great session with Pacific Dreams while staying for a wonderful week at the Fairmont Orchid to attend a wedding. The beach shots are everything you hope for in an ideal family photo shoot. Booking was super easy- they were very accommodating. Loryn who helped us select o

In our opinion, The Four Seasons is the best hotel on the Big Island (probably all of Hawaii), but that comes at a steep price. For a fraction of that price, you can get a room at the Fairmont - the second best hotel on the Big Island in our view. The Fairmont orchid is our "go t

Any recommendations for running routes from the Fairmont? Thanks!
All beaches in Hawaii are public, by law no one can own the beach or block your access. So an out and back run on a beach is possible, barring natural barriers. The Front Desk has a resort map, they can send you on your way too.

This is my first trip to Hawaii and my family is considering to stay at Firmont Orchid this December. The biggest reason we considered this hotel is the beach and my children are looking forward to outdoor beach activities such as snorkeling and swimming on the private beach. However, I have just been informed that it is rare to snorkel during this time of year and became worried. I am well aware that it depends on the year's weather but is it warm enough to swim on the beach in December? Or is it a little chilly but bearable? Your answer will be very helpful to me in making a decision. Thank you.
The weather this time of the year will be 70 at night, 80-85 during the day......should be ideal for swimming. The ocean beach area is a private one and you and your children should love it!!!! There is also a HUGE outdoor pool area which your family will love too. Honestly, you and your children should have no problems swimming either place.

Got to the site by reviewing all inclusive resorts, but I am not seeing any clarification on the website. Is this an all inclusive resort or not?
No. It also doesn't have a casino or a nightclub.

Is there pool heated?
No it’s not, but you won’t need a heated pool. The weather is warm but the pool is just cool as in refreshing but not cold. The ocean at the beach is much cooler, but still comfortable for swimming Enjoy!

We are arriving on Dec 1 and my husband would like to borrow golf clubs . We are members of the "Presidents Club". Can we book them once we get to the hotel and see what day is best for golfing or do we need to reserve in advance? Thanks Lesley Pearce
I am not a golfer- best to call the concierge or golf club directly. Have a great trip!!it is fabulous!

"Partial ocean view rooms on the north side of the South Tower are excellent on floors 3-6."
"Buy food and liquor ate the store in town."
"Not worth paying extra for the upgrade to Ocean View"
"Walk right out to the beach from room 1159"
"Above the third floor, the 3rd is the main floor with lots walking traffic"
