From world-class golf to scuba diving, from horseback riding to paddling
an outrigger canoe, from hiking a volcano to gazing at the stars, the
recreational possibilities are endless as the blue Pacific. At The Orchid,
the "legendary" Orchid beachboys staff offers an inviting and
refreshing cultural alternative at the beach. You can choose from a free-form
10,000 square foot pool and 20,000 square foot sundeck or a beach side
cabana on a secluded white sand lagoon - just perfect for swimming, volleyball,
snorkeling or simply sunbathing.
Seven of ten plexipave courts, including a stadium court, can be lit for
evening play. And body and massage programs at the Spa Without Walls incorporate
the healing powers of nature with treatments that are offered outdoors
- near the shoreline or a refreshing waterfall. Exercise equipment and
free weights are provided in The Fitness Center.
Three restaurants showcase the flavors of the islands in dynamic menus
created by a talented team of culinary experts.Amidst a landscape of volcanoes,
rainforest, and rolling surf, The Fairmont Orchid, Hawai`i graces 32 pristine
beach front acres on the resplendent Kohala Coast. Nestled on the sunny
leeward side, the luxury resort basks in more than 4,000 hours of sunshine
each year. And, as night falls, it offers a dazzling vantage point for
the island's most dramatic sunsets.
