We had a fabulous time and loved our room looking down at our private pond with the Pacific just 100 feet away. From sunrise to sunset and into the night, our experience was heavenly. Tough to go home. Loved all of the restaurants but Ulu was our favorite. Service was great as well. Spa was very nice and loved the... More

This was an absolutely luxurious trip. We had a lower level room with a lovely lanai and a fun, private outdoor shower with a resident lizard. Our room was right near the pond where you could snorkel with the sea animals. At the poolsides we were given cold towels and misted by staff members. Cabanas surrounded the pools for your... More

It will be one of the most amazing places you will ever stay. Stay as long as you can and don't leave the property! The views, the pools, the spa, the exercise facility and the rooms were all worth the long travel. Every aspect of our stay was perfection!

We found the layout of this hotel to be particularly impressive. The rooms are organised in different buildings spread throughout the resort. There are a large number of different pools and restaurants to choose from. Service is top class. The whole location is very peaceful. Note however, that the swimming area on the beach is quite limited and attempting to... More

We visited for our 25th anniversary and had a vacation that far exceeded our pretty high expectations. Spectacular location, outstanding service, delicious locally grown food at the restaurants. A truly wonderful experience. We knew it would be expensive, so we were prepared for that. The spa was wonderful (try the lomilomi massage) and we enjoyed prime whale watching right from... More

This is an absolutely fabulous resort! Our room overlooked the 18th green of the golf course with a view of the ocean, which my golfer husband loved! The bathroom, with large shower and tub, was very luxurious! We enjoyed many of the amenities of the resort, including the wonderful ULU restaurant, spa and golf course.

My husband and I spent 3 nights of our babymoon here, and the other 4 nights at the Fairmont Orchid. There really is no debate on which property we enjoyed more, and for the difference in price, it was a no-brainer. If you can only afford to stay here one night, try to make it happen.
