outdoor seating. We chose to sit on the large deck which had stunning views of the pool area and beach - with a front row seat to the sunset. It is the perfect place for a sunset cocktail. Afterwards we walked around the resort and had a peek at their beach which was very charming. The Luana Lounge had possibly the best cocktail that we had ever had. It is called the Luana Cooler and is a mixture of homemade ginger ale (!), with coconut and mango rum. Simply to die for! We ordered a couple of appetizers off the menu (fish sliders, tempura and flatbread). They were pleasant but not outstanding. Then we decided to sample their $5 dessert menu. This is not to be missed!!!! We expected minuscule portions but that was not the case at all. They were very generous in size. We sampled the apple/banana corndog (to die for!!), the boston cream malasada and the creme brule. All were amazing. It was a lovely evening and one I look forward to repeating in the near future. When we have guests come to stay, it will definitely form a part of our plans

The Fairmont Orchid is an amazing place for a little relaxation. Located out in the middle of nowhere (we had to drive past barren lava fields for 30 minutes from the airport to get here) you definitely feel far away from it all. The hotel itself is very nice. It has a big, open pool area and a private white sand beach that is sheltered (with no real waves) so perfect for snorkeling or for smaller kids. I got up every morning for an ocean swim and saw sea turtles every time. The rooms are pretty standard but the beds are comfortable, and the food at the restaurants was generally good. Would definitely stay here again.

There are many restaurants at the Fairmont Orchid but I have only tried this one so far and that was for breakfast. They have a great buffet. Lots of different ethnic foods. You have Asian, Hawaiian, and good old American. One thing that I love about this breakfast is the free Keiki buffet. No one likes to spend a lot of money for breakfast for their little one when they barely eat anything. Here they can have eggs, bacon, pancakes and a smoothie, all for free.

Love Browns Beach house for a special meal. I havent stayed here but I've visited - they had giant telescopes set up for guests to stargaze and I'm told they have a great beach with excellent green sea turtle viewing. View posh but if you want luxury and dont want to leave the resort this might be a great place. Especially for those with kids. Couples should stay at Mauna Kea Beach.

Beautiful crisp morning view. Saw an abundance of whales just offshore, a magical moment of nature for all to see.

I stopped by the Fairmont Orchid to check out the sea turtles and go to a spa treatment. Unfortunately, I never saw any sea turtles :( The spa treatment was far more successful. You can choose to have a treatment in the regular room, or upgrade to a waterfall or ocean setting. I chose the waterfall setting because it's different and because the treatment rooms are these cute little huts. I am super happy I did the upgrade (at first, I didn't think it would be a big deal). But once I saw the treatment rooms, I knew I should try something different. While while kept, the facility is older and wouldn't compare to more modern facilities. Hearing the soft waterfall while feeling the gentle breeze and sunlight hitting your skin was heavenly. And of course, my massues was also excellent.

I recently stayed at the Fairmont Orchid. This was my first stay at this resort and I'll be back. I like Hawaii's resorts that have a feeling and decor that compliments that islands and the Fairmont does an excellent job of this. The rooms are generously sized, though I wasn't a fan of the tiled floors throughout. The staff was everything you'd expect from a five star resort. And kama'aina, check out their rates. They're very affordable.

This resort is on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island...this is the home of most of the big resorts on the Big Island. It has a pool, a private beach, and a golf course. They also can make arrangements for scuba diving. Unless all you want to do is hang out in the resort the whole time, you need a car. There is a shuttle to a few of the other resorts, but it isnt that interesting. Brown's restaurant is on site and is quite famous.
