Five Reasons to Visit Fairmont Orchid This Spring

The skies along the Kohala Coast are the clearest they’ve been in three decades. And if you’re ready to exchange those sweaters for swimsuits, Fairmont Orchid is the place to be to experience the best of Hawaii Island. This spring travel season, immerse yourself in the island’s rich cultural traditions, support bee health initiatives and be the first to try our new robata restaurant scheduled to open soon!  Here are five reasons to escape the cold and indulge in our luxury Hawaii Island resort:

1.     Hawaiian Cultural Immersion
Ocean-wise locals have gathered on Hawaiian beaches to share their knowledge of marine life and Hawaiian culture with visitors from the turn of the century. This tradition lives on at Fairmont Orchid through our Hui Holokai Beach Ambassador Program. We invite you to voyage with our beach ambassadors on a sunrise canoe, allow them to teach you chords on the ukulele and a few hula moves and if there’s a water activity you’d like to master such as stand up paddle boarding or snorkeling in our lagoon teeming with honu (Hawaiian sea turtles), our beach ambassadors are happy to show you how it’s done! 
2.     Sustainability Initiatives
Indulge in a sweet way to practice sustainability! Our queen bee and her 15,000 honeybees are abuzz in four Flow Hive hotels on property, producing the world’s rarest gourmet honey only found on Hawaii Island. We invite you to bee our guest and taste our rare kiawe (pronounced “kee AH’ vay”) honey while you sip a glass of our Bees Box wine, a luscious Chardonnay whose proceeds help conserve the bee population. And after a day of lounging in the sun, pamper yourself with dual honey spa treatments debuting this spring at our award-winning Spa Without Walls. Luxuriate in a full-body honey massage and facial using our specially formulated honey oil to accelerate the process of natural cell renewal. It’s truly the bee’s knees! 
3.     New Restaurant Opening
Come hungry…our new restaurant scheduled to open this spring is the only robatayaki (fireside cooking) dining spot on the island of Hawai‘i! Binchotan: Bar & Grill offers Asian-inspired creations featuring locally sourced seafood, meats and vegetables fired up over premium charcoal, along with favorite Hawaiian-style staples such as tonkatsu ramen, honey macadamia nut shrimp and ube (Okinawan sweet potato) cheesecake. An exciting new bar serves handcrafted cocktails such as our signature Mauna Lani Mule to sip while you’re watching the sunset over the Kohala Coast.
4.     Golfing in Paradise
Need to tune-up your golf game? We’ve got you covered. Sign up for a lesson with a PGA professional at the renown Mauna Lani Resort and take a selfie playing South Course No. 15, one of the most photographed over-the-ocean golf course holes in the world! This Instagrammable course is a masterpiece of design, offering a panorama of mountain and ocean views. We’ll even provide complimentary transportation to and from the 18-hole championship golf course to make it an ace experience from start to finish.
5.     Destination Weddings 
If you popped the question over the holidays, let us plan your happily ever after—Hawaii-style! From the blowing of a conch shell announcing the opening ceremony, to the island tradition of exchanging lei (maile for gentlemen and tuba rose for ladies) to signify your love, we’re the only resort along the Kohala Coast that can offer you a full toes-in-the-sand wedding experience from ceremony to reception. Say “I Do” and cheers the night away on our private beach with clear vistas of Mauna Kea and Maui. There’s nothing else like it on the island of Hawaii!
