If it's blissful escape you seek, relax and rejuvenate at our luxurious Hawaii hotel's Spa Without Walls featuring waterfall massage hale (huts) and breathtaking oceanfront massage cabanas that draw from our island's natural healing mana (power).

At the beach, be sure and meet the native Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles that bask on our shoreline every afternoon. 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! Great access to a man-made beach with the ability to rent out special cabanas. Lots of great activities including hula and a tour of the life in a tide pool. The rooms were nice, though our bed was very creaky/noisy. Staff was wonderful and accommodating. Highly recommend!

Review:   Perfect setting. Lovely hotel. Friendly staff that 'welcome home' greeting you get from the staff after a day out. Food is good. Pool is clean. The perfect sunset place facing due west. Great gardens with lovely water features. Simply relax and forget about things and enjoy. Best hotel during our 3 island stay. Want to go back everytime I think about it.

Review:   Loved staying here. It’s very pricey, the spa, the classes, and the food but great quality (for the food, only one I bought). There’s a great scuba area out of the lagoon, the best I’ve been to. I recommend using the two rental snorkeling gears they give you as opposed to buying the 75$ kit (includes a lot of others, like paddle board, however you cannot go out of the lagoon with it). The people there were so friendly.

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.
