My husband's family and I stayed at one of the Exclusive Resort homes adjacent /part of to the Fairmont Orchid. So, I can only share my experience with the lobby lounge, pool, spa, restaurants, activities and overall beautiful grounds. This was my third trip to Hawaii for '08- with visits to different islands and I hadn't experienced more beautiful sunsets than the lobby lounge area of the Orchid. It was absolutely amazing! The grounds are beautiful and the spa has very unique little treatment rooms spread around the property with a nice creek going through it. The pool did seem a little outdated but overall, the beach was good and the activities being offered were fabulous. I very much enjoyed my private pilates early morning overlooking the beautiful water.
The big island is very spread out with only two luxury resorts;: this one and the Four Seasons (which has the most amazing grounds ever!). So, not too many to choose from, but I'd definitely go back and split my time between this property and the Four Seasons.
