Fairmont Orchid at Mauna Lani Resort Named Hawaii Island’s Top Hotel in 2019

Mauna Lani Resort on Hawaii Island’s world-renowned Kohala Coast boasts numerous amenities, including The Shops at Mauna Lani with its boutiques, galleries and restaurants, the Mauna Lani Beach Club, and the Mauna Lani Sports Club and Spa among them.

In addition to these stellar amenities and the many luxury residential neighborhoods, the resort also is home to two world-class hotels: the Fairmont Orchid, a AAA Four Diamond luxury property, and the Mauna Lani Auberge Collection Hotel (opening late this year after a major enhancement project).

Earlier in July, the iconic Fairmont Orchid was named the best hotel on Hawaii Island by USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards 2019. The same annual survey also ranked Fairmont Orchid, the third best hotel in the entire state! And the accolades don’t stop there, Travel + Leisure magazine named Fairmont Orchid one of the Top 15 Resorts in Hawaii in its World’s Best Awards 2019 and its location – Hawaii Island – was ranked the #3 island in the island chain.

This award-winning hotel is just a few minutes away from the private, gated community of Ke Kailani – Mauna Lani’s newest residential development —  which offers an increasingly rare opportunity to build your own oceanfront or golf course-fronting dream home on one of just about 50 estate sites.

In addition to the resort amenities, property owners at Ke Kailani have exclusive access to The Grotto, an on-site gathering place for residents and their guests featuring an attractive infinity pool, two spas, and two entertainment pavilions.
