An unforgettable and unbeatable luxury vacation

412matte on Aug 08, 2022

From start to finish my experience at the Fairmont Orchid was incredible. I’ve stayed at the Mauna Kea, and the Four Seasons on the big island but my experience at the Fairmont beat them both, and at a much more reasonable price point. Food: 10/10 I ate at every restaurant on the property and everything was delicious. Aside from that, the staff was so friendly and accommodating and the ambiance was so romantic. I could not have asked for a better dining experience. Unreal. Accommodations: 10/10 We were upgraded through American Express to an ocean front room and all I can say is WOW. The view was breathtaking. The room was flawless. The balcony was lovely. There was not a single issue. Truly amazing! Staff: 10/10 As mentioned before, I’ve stayed at luxury properties across the big island with my family. I thought I knew was the highest level of service was like. I was wrong. Somehow, the staff at the Fairmont Orchid managed to raise the bar of “quality service” to unheard of heights. Despite being completely sold out, they managed to make us feel like we were the only ones there. I don’t know what kind of sorcery they use to pull something like that off but WOW! It blew my mind. I wish I could personally thank each and every member of the staff…at all levels. From valet workers to the management, the staff went above and beyond for us. Location: 10/10 While the beach was smaller than others on the big island, I believe this was a benefit to our stay. It makes the experience more intimate, almost like it’s your private beach. Moreover, at properties with larger beaches, staff is stretched too thin or non-existent and no service is offered at all due to the size of the beach and the volume of guests they would have to cater to. Here, however, you have a consistent flow of service from the moment you arrive at the beach until sunset. It’s the best! Additionally, the beach never feels crowded because of its size. Somehow they struck the perfect ratio between size and volume of beach users. Overall: 10/10 I cannot wait to return to the Fairmont Orchid and would highly recommend you give it a try. You will not be let down, you will be blown away.

Paradise Found

KAO1117 (Long Beach, California) on Aug 07, 2022

We had a great experience staying here with our toddler. Nicely appointed and awesome beach side restaurant options. Wish they had room service during the day but it’s only offered at breakfast and dinner. Brown’s Beach House was our favorite restaurant!
