Welcome to Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii

Experience the aloha spirit at the best luxury beach resort on the Big Island. Fairmont Orchid is a AAA Four Diamond sanctuary that’s uniquely Hawaiian: 32 pristine oceanfront acres along the black-lava Kohala Coast of Hawaii Island. Snorkel the clear aquamarine waters of the resort’s private lagoon past schools of yellow butterfly fish, manta rays and green honu, Hawaiian sea turtles. Nap in a hammock. Float in the giant free-form pool warmed by the sun. Or lie back for a restorative massage to the sound of rushing waterfalls in our “Spa Without Walls” — private open-air huts nestled between greenery, coconut palms and exotic orchids.

The largest in the archipelago, “the Big Island” of Hawaii is the most authentic: relaxed, rural and charming, with a spiritual history dating back 300 years. The connection to the ‘āina (land) is strong. Here, surrounded by nature, you can find space on our private white-sand beach. Stroll our tropical gardens scented with plumeria, gardenia and pikake. All of our guest activities embrace the island’s heritage, culture, traditions and legends, immersing you personally in the aloha spirit of kindness, harmony, humility and patience. Join a storytelling session hosted by our Director of Hawaiian Culture. Learn how to hula and play the ukulele. Watch the sun rise from a traditional outrigger canoe with our ho’aokele (navigator) out on Pauoa Bay.

Aloha! (Welcome!) We’ll greet you by name, perhaps with a song (mele komo), and always with a spirit of ho’okipa (hospitality). Let us show you our Hawaii.

Vacation Inspiration

Resort Pool at Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii

island retreat

Paddle the calm, crystal-clear waters of our lagoon with views of five mountains, including the world’s tallest, Maunakea. The property rests on ancient, sacred land. Once known as Kalāhuipua‘a, it is filled with archaeological sites, petroglyphs, royal fishponds and unusual volcanic lava formations. Just as extraordinary is the proximity to Bucket List ocean adventures. Float above the colorful coral reef, teeming with pufferfish, anemones, eels, rays and sea turtles. Cycle our verdant tropical grounds. Take in the salty sea air. Here, we’re surrounded by nature and connected to the land.

eco stewardship

Our resort’s private bay houses the healthiest reef in the Islands, home to honu, Hawaiian sea turtles, and myriad sealife. We invite our guests to care for the ‘aina (land) as it cares for us. Taste locally grown produce, fresh seafood and pasture-raised meats in all of our restaurants. Join a “turtle talk” or complimentary weekly Aloha ‘Aina tour to our chef’s gardens, botanicals collection and three onsite hives. Michael Domeier, a foremost white shark researcher and professional beekeeper, tends the resort’s 80,000 honeybees, which produce the raw, white, monofloral Kiawe honey — one of the rarest varieties in the world.
