No matter where you travel from, Hawaii is a pretty long journey. After all that travel, many people just prefer to park at one beautiful property/resort and be able to soak up the rays, the surf and dine on local delicacies. Here are the best properties on the Big Island that fit that purpose of combining relaxation with luxury.
The Fairmont Orchid is a 32-acre, AAA Four-Diamond luxury resort located on the Kohala Coast of the Island of Hawaii. This might be the ultimate blending of resort luxury with a cultural twist. Decades ago, the Waikiki Beachboys were part concierge, part ocean guide, and part cultural historian. This tradition thrives at the Fairmont Orchid through the Hui Holokai program. You can tour the largest petroglyph field in the Pacific and interact with green sea turtles. 540 recently renovated rooms plus a revamped pool area and multiple dining options make this a place you can just park and be happy.
