Oceanside massage was amazing

The interior space was dated and a bit musty, but you come for the outside. Inside, there is a sauna, steam room, and small dressing room with water, tea, snacks and fruit. There... read more

As I continue my travel journeys, spa visits are always on my list.

I booked an 80 min massage by the waterfall ~ truly one of the best experiences I had... the... More

My first impression was when I headed to the "waiting room" only to discover that there was a "waiting garden"! with comfy chairs, waterfall and lush flowers and trees in a garden where I waited for my practitioner. I had a wonderful lomi lomi massage with Audre which uses fast and deep strokes, different from a classic massage in Canada.... More

My husband and I had a Lomi Lomi couples massage for our anniversary. It was pure heaven!! We chose the waterfalls, very secluded and peaceful. You get to use the sauna rooms or just lounge out on the secluded patio with snacks and drinks.

The robes here are not luxurious enough for the setting. The staff was capable put not peacefully inviting---which is what I was looking for with a spa experience. I recommend going elsewhere for the high price they charge.

We stayed in Hali Kai and came over to the Fairmont for the spa services. We scheduled couples massages after hearing great reviews of the spa. The services were top notch. Beautiful amenities and very relaxing atmosphere. We did couples massages on the beach and it was a wonderful experience. Having the sound of the water in the background was... More

I got two treatments and neither one was anywhere near the quality of service for what was charged. I had a foot treatment- nothing special here but my expectations were so high for a $179 treatment. My pedicure person at home does a better foot massage for 35, I should have run for the door when the manicurist was also... More

Local resident of Kona and went to the Spa without walls at The Fairmont Orchid. First impression it was mediocre, due to it being very small. As soon as you walk in, there's two sinks and on the left is two urinals. Locker area is very tight with no lounge area to relax, besides the steam room and sauna room.... More

The interior space was dated and a bit musty, but you come for the outside. Inside, there is a sauna, steam room, and small dressing room with water, tea, snacks and fruit. There is a nice waiting area outside (although the wood chaises could use cushions) and massages are available next to waterfalls or the ocean. Spend the extra ten... More

First part of massage was great but felt very rushed at the end. Other massages I've been to, they do fingers and toes. This one didn't. Did the massage by the ocean, Weather was windy , it wAs hard to relax with the squeaking in the cabana.
