Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii Questions & Answers

Canada

In reviewing the pictures, I see umbrellas for shade by the pool but not on the beach. Can you confirm if this is the case? Eg, is there really no shade umbrellas on the beach?

There are chairs with canopy by beach and pool based on our August visit. However esp by beach there are few...unless you go to far side of property which has trees and so lots of natural shade but beach is not so inviting or safe there

If shade really matters get there early. Or shell out for cabana

There are chairs with cabana shades built into them at the beach. Not every chair has the shade cover but many of them do. Get there early in the morning to take your pick.

No shade on the beach, and a bit of a competition for the umbrellas by the pool. Usually at a Fairmont the staff will help you with umbrella, towels, and lounge chair.....not here they are short on pool staff as I said in my review management is trying to cut corners with minimal staff when I was there. Even getting ice water was tough

As far as I remember there are no umbrellas for shade on the beach. The only way to get shade is by renting the tent that they charge around $60/day for it...

Hi there, thanks for your question. To be perfectly honest we didn't spend any time on the beach at the hotel as were only staying a couple of days and had a packed itinerary. From reviewing my photos it's doesn't seem that there are umbrellas but the hotel seemed to be very equipped so I'm sure they would be able to provide shade if requested. Perhaps drop them a message? Sorry I can't help further. Thanks. Sarah.
