The Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii is a perfect setting for your Hawaiian wedding. The spectacular resort scenery provides an unforgettable backdrop to any special event or celebration. A sampling of our outdoor locations consist of Turtle Pointe Gazebo, situated along the peppered shoreline of black and white coral, and offers breathtaking views of the ocean, resort and summits of the Kohala Mountains, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa from an unspoiled broad lawn area. The Coconut Grove is a sandy coconut grove with towering palms overhead and offers a wedding on the beach with swaying palms and glowing tiki torches. Courtyard Lanai features sculpted tile and railings and overlooks an open lawn, the 10,000 square foot pool and the ocean beyond. Kilohana offers sunset views of the resort, and is the ideal location for your reception. Shuttered doors open to a private lanai and grassy area surrounded by tiki torches.

My husband and I held our wedding and reception at Coconut Grove - it was absolutely amazing! Mew and Sara (with Jots of Thoughts) brought to life exactly what we'd hoped for. The staff on the Fairmont campus are SO accommodating, prompt, and around to ensure your happiness and comfort. The pool is great as well as the overall grounds.

My husband and I did a lot of research on the different resorts on the Kona side of Big Island, interviewed 4 hotels and asked a ton of questions. We ultimately chose Fairmont Orchid because of its location and size, its amenities, its beauty, its price points and also because of our wedding coordinator, Hannah Bahm. Hannah supported us, answered all of our questions and was on top of everything from our very first conversation about the wedding until the conclusion of our big day and beyond. Hannah was responsive, professional, organized, flexible and made sure that all of the details of our wedding (and there were many!) were given due attention and were smoothly executed so that my husband and I could focus on our priorities. We were in very good hands. We held all of our wedding weekend functions at the Fairmont and were so impressed by how versatile the resort and catering services were in making each event unique in terms of space, ambience and food. Besides the wedding events, our guests who stayed at Fairmont enjoyed the pool area, the beach and the lagoon where they could snorkel and paddle board. There is also a nice coastal walk past the Coconut Grove where we saw sea turtles and someone net fishing. The food/drinks at the restaurants on property were delicious (with good number of veggie options) but definitely pricey -- but everything on Big Island just seemed to be pricier than even New York City prices. That said, there is a Foodland about 5 minutes drive, an Island Gourmet about 10 minutes drive, and a Costco in Kona about 45 minutes drive, from Fairmont. We did not feel "trapped" in Fairmont at all given its range of amenities, and its location between Waimea and Kona gave us quite a bit of options with a car. The downside is that it is far (2.5 hours one-way) from the Volcano National Park, so we will have to go back again! All in all, we were very very pleased with how everything turned out during our unforgettable wedding weekend.

My destination wedding @ Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island was amazing!!! The pictures on their hotel website do not do the hotel enough justice. The hotel is beautiful–the grand entrance, the marble lobby, the giant beautiful and delicious smelling gingerbread house in the lobby (we went right before Christmas), the décor, the beach & snorkeling (we saw so many turtles!), the landscaping, and clean guestrooms! On top of the hotel being beautiful, the service was also super friendly and efficient! From the bell staff, to front desk, to housekeeping, the staff was some of the friendliest and most polite hospitality staff I have ever met. We had a destination wedding, and I had no idea the quality of service they were going to provide, and so I’m surprised to say they exceeded my already high expectations. Big THANK YOU to Mew Lan, our Catering Manager at the hotel for helping to plan and communicate everything! Mew worked so well with her hotel staff and alongside my wedding planner effortlessly. I could tell that the hotel prepared for my group arrival, worked as a strong team and the result is that we were all truly pampered. Mew is very quick to respond to your requests and concerns, experienced, and easy to work with! In regards to my wedding day –the set up was perfect at Coconut Grove (had my ceremony & reception there), the banquet staff were efficient, the AV was set up correctly for my ceremony, my cake design was absolute perfection, and the flow of the event went well. I just can’t thank them enough for giving me the best day of our lives! Note: this has nothing to do with the hotel, but be careful of having your wedding outside in December. It can be VERY windy–the sound quality of the speeches will be effected and the cake might topple over!
The Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii responded with the following comments:
Aloha Jane, Mahalo for your kind words. We are so happy that everything went as planned and that you and Ken had an amazing day to remember. All the best to you both as you start your new adventure as Mr & Mrs. And always know that the Orchid will from now on be your home away from home.

My husband and I are so glad we went with the Fairmont for our ceremony and reception venue. Ashley Kojima, our wedding coordinator was helpful and professional, working seamlessly with our wedding planner, Haunani of Weddings by Le'Amana. Additionally, the hotel staff were consistently pleasant and responsive. Our wedding ceremony and reception were beyond what we expected or hoped for.....thank you so much to the staff at the Fairmont for a magical wedding experience for ourselves and our wedding guests. We went to a 5 star hotel on another island for our honeymoon - and they did not hold a candle to our experience at the Fairmont. Thanks so much! Lourdes & Brian

Planning our wedding through the orchid was perfect. Jasey and her team handled everything prior and made sure the wedding day went smoothly. They went above and beyond to ensure that the day and night were perfect. This wedding was a dream come true!

We could not have been happier with how perfectly Katie and the rest of the amazing staff at The Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii, executed our wedding. The setting (Coconut Grove) was magical and the food was described by many of our guests as the best they had ever had at a wedding. Every aspect of our wedding -- from the flowers to the musicians, from the fruit tree to the photographer -- was perfect. Katie handled every request and every detail, including details we hadn't even thought of, efficiently, flawlessly and professionally, and the entire staff at the resort made us feel like the most important people in the world. Our wedding was absolutely amazing, and we couldn't have asked for anything better.

Reading all these fantastic reviews wasn't a surprise to me. The Fairmont Orchid did surpass all our expectations for our wedding and it helped greatly that the Orchid was not only our only choice, it was the choice from the very start. However, I never realized out of 4 or 5 of the reviews here, all mentioned a special someone who also touched our lives in so many ways - Ashley Kojima. Ashley have been our very pillar of support and help throughout the planning and running of the wedding. She is easy to talk to, great to work with and during our special day, she even came in whilst suffering from a bad cold. She took all my random, incoherent and at times, massive dump of ideas and group them into a tangible delight. Ashley put such a smile on our faces, and such love towards her that it was really sad to even let her leave at the end of the night. And don't forget the banquet staff. Your wedding will never be the same without the staff (and we do mean ALL the staff at the Fairmont Orchid). From the valet guys to the kitchen staff, you just want to embrace all of the at the end of your night and say a massive 'thank you' that can never quite be enough.

Our wedding coordinator Mew, was incredible. She responded back quickly and professionally answering any and all questions we had. We wouldn't of had the beautiful wedding we did if it wasn't for her. The day of our event was perfect. Everything rolled smoothly minus the usual small stuff. All in all our day was better than we could of ever imagined. The rest of the staff was great to work with as well. We did have a few hiccups with customer service upon check in for some guests and in the dining areas as well. Mew quickly sorted out the issues without hesitation. We're so thankful we had her to help us during the planning process!

Wonderful. Ashley Kojima, the wedding coordinator took care of everything! We didn't have to lift a finger the day of the wedding. Never once did the words 'we may not be able to do that' come out of her mouth. Highly recommended, beautiful location.
