This was our second visit to the Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island and the second visit was even more enjoyable than the first. The property offers it's own small private beach where you can snorkel and paddle board or canoe, amongst other things. The rentals are very reasonable and I would suggest if you are not already a member of the President's Club that you become one for you receive a 20% discount on rentals and for purchases at the gift shops in the hotel. The gift shops have an amazing selection of swim suits and clothing as well as jewelry.:-) The Sushi restaurant in the hotel is probably one of the best we've ever experienced and the pool bar food was so fresh and tasty - a bonus is they offer many gluten free choices and choices for many other dietary restrictions. Same goes for the room service breakfast each day - they were quick and had were able to fill our dietary requests with no issues.
The valet staff were very helpful with directions and with information on the best beaches for what we were looking for - big Waves! The cleaning staff were very friendly and efficient. We left notes with certain requests and they were always filled when we got back to them room. We did of course tip each day so that may have helped. :-)
We will definitely go back to the Fairmont Orchid.
