Or discover island-style fun and culture as you paddle an outrigger canoe, hike through the largest petroglyph field in the Pacific, learn to weave a coconut leaf basket. Decades ago, visitors to the islands were intrigued by the "aloha" spirit, charm and warm hospitality of the Waikiki Beachboys. Their cultural knowledge, ocean skills and storytelling talents were legendary. This tradition -- and the spirit of old Hawaii -- thrives at The Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii through the Orchid Beach Club program.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Beautiful resort and pool. Very comfortable bed and lovely bathroom. The room and ambience are very nice. Staff was very friendly. Rooms were beautifully tidied. Downsides: -We were overlooked for service several times: at the pool and two of the restaurants, and on multiple occasions. They served people around us but we kept being overlooked, finally resorting to the bar each time to get our own food and drinks. -The hotel also charges for most things, which really gets me at a nice resort (though our parking was free). I needed to print a form and it cost me $5 at the business center. It would have cost us $50 to play tennis—when we went to the tennis courts there were at least 10 and they were all empty.

Review:   Beautiful resort right on the water. Enjoyed our stay with snorkeling out a little bay/protected inlet, relaxing by pool, delicious breakfast buffet with just about anything you might want. We were there for a company rewards trip and enjoyed two catered evenings with good service and food. Would recommend staying here.

Review:   The Fairmont Orchid was an excellent experience. This was the best of the 3 hotels I stayed at when I was in Hawaii. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were very nice, the food was good, and it was not too crowded at the pool or the beach. I stayed on the top floor which was called Fairmont gold. I would highly recommend it. Even though it is more money, you get breakfast for free in the lounge (and lunch, and a dinner like meal too, if you want that), and free non-alcoholic beverages. It was also a bigger room than the standard model. I had an all around amazing experience when I was there, and I will make sure to go back, if I go back to the big island.

Review:   Can not say enough great things about this hotel. We stayed here for 4 days, and had the most amazing time ever. The food by the beach is incredible, drinks are nice and strong and delicious, and the amenities are fantastic. Staff were always incredibly friendly, helpful, and did everything they could to help us enjoy our stay. Would love to stay here again!

Review:   This place is great! Service is top notch and onsite restaurants serve great food. The all you can eat sushi paired with all you can drink Sake is delicious and can get out of hand in the best way. It is great for couples as there is overtones of romance through the resort. This is not a beach resort so get ready for pool and hammocks both of which are great. Lastly, there is a shuttle to the shops that runs 24hrs. There is not a lot of night life but good surfing 15 min away by foot.
