Fairmont Orchid, a luxury resort nestled along 32 oceanfront acres on the pristine Kohala Coast of Hawai‘i Island, announces the completion of its meeting and event space transformation. This multi-million dollar investment in the property’s refresh pays tribute to the Hawaiian culture through its use of fluid layouts guided by the ocean’s movement, color palettes informed by the island’s topography, and textures inspired by traditional Hawaiian craftsmanship.

With 32,000 square feet of indoor space renovated, along with 76,000 square feet of outdoor space overlooking the ocean, waterfalls and lush gardens, Fairmont Orchid offers the ideal venue to weave aloha hospitality and luxury to meetings, retreats and corporate gatherings.
