Fairmont Orchid - Kona

The hotel is directly on the water. The view is amazing, drinks on the beach and by the pool, very relaxing.

Awesome Place To Stay!

We were married at Coconut Grove at the Fairmont Orchid and stayed in a suite on our wedding night. It was absolutely beautiful and the room was amazing! Everyone that worked there was very friendly.

Great Hotel!

We had to evacuate the hotel due to a tsunami warning. The staff was well organized, kind, gracious and calm. It could have been a horrible experience but ended up being great. This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in.

The Fair Orchid

Quiet, out of the way, beautiful location. Near it all, but just far enough away to avoid the tourist crowds. Outstanding!!

Great Vacation

The resort had a lot of fun activities at the beach including snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboarding, fishing, and surfing. I recommend getting an activity pass there if you plan to stay at the beach for a couple of days. Make sure you snorkel so you can see the fish and endangered green sea turtles. The pool was refreshing and the service was excellent.

If you are looking at minimizing dinning cost, ask to share an entre. The portions were plentiful and the quality was outstanding.

Fabulous experience, beautiful hotel!

If you want a true beautiful Hawaiian experience, you need to stay at the Fairmont Orchid Hotel! The grounds are impecabily groomed and blooming. The location stunning! Staff could not have been nicer, or more professional or helpful and very accomodating. Every restaurant was good to excellent and great service. Tasty libations and of course nothing is cheap, but one definitely gets what you deserve. The Spa, very Zen and romatic with a wonderful Hawaiian twist. The Luau is not to be missed, historial and educational in nature with wonderful traditional dancing, great island foods and tropical libations..fabluous! The pools and beach, coastal pathway and the sacred fishing ponds were amazing. Favorite activities of mine! There is something for everyone and done in and with such, Hawaiian elegance. The only place to stay, in my book. Aloha

Great for families, there are tennis courts, golf at the hotel next door, all ocean type of activites available, at/on the beach and the hard core athletes wont be disappointed either. Anything, at any level can be arranged. Nice Amenities.

Hotel good [...]

This was my second trip to the hotel. We went back because we liked it so much. The hotel staff fall over themselves to help you and nothing seems to be too much trouble. The pool is open 24 hours as well, which is great. Views are amazing[...]The Hotel is fantastic, you will have a great time here, but check out the room descriptions on the hotel website itself first, just so you aren't misled the way we were.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

If you feel like getting out onto the Ocean for a bit without being on a tour, and you have some boating experience, Kona Boat Rentals have boats for hire by the day or half day, it's pretty cheap and a great time. They are about 3 miles south of the airport in Kona. A guy called [...] runs the place.

Yup, it's paradise!

Everyone says this place is the best, and at first, I thought maybe it was a little overrated. But as we settled into our stay, the subtleties of what make this property great became increasingly apparent. You don't have to leave - ever - well, maybe for some food. You have ocean, pool, activities, tennis, golf. The resort was thankfully NOT crowded; it seemed incredibly peaceful. Staff was always helpful and friendly. I'm already trying to book another trip back!

Pick up food outside the resort. The high-priced restaurants get old.
