The Fairmont Orchid celebrates 30 years on the Kohala Coast, Hawai‘i Island. We break down some fun facts by the numbers...


80 Thousand

The number of bees housed on-site, which produce kiawe, the rarest honey in the world, that you can taste throughout the property


The number of mountains visible from the resort, including Mauna Kea, the world’s tallest mountain when measured from its base on the sea floor


The number of lava etchings found at PuakĊ Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve, adjacent to the property. They date back to 1200 A.D.


The number of acts of sustainability the property has pledged in honor of its 30th anniversary. That includes eliminating single-use plastic bottles in guest rooms, zero-waste recipes and more, with a portion of proceeds of the Live Pono packages going toward the Hawai‘i Wildlife Fund.


The number of inches—or less—that fall on the Kohala Coast annually


The number of honu—Hawaiian sea turtles—that call Fairmont Orchid home


The number of dining options on the property, including Brown’s Beach House, an AAA Four Diamond award-winning restaurant


The square footage of the Fairmont Orchid’s free-form swimming pool
