The Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii
The Backstory: Set on some of the best real estate on the Kona Coast, the Orchid gets the Hawaiian beach resort experience right. It has a protected beach, a large meandering pool, and an idyllic palm tree setting that's ideal for serious sunset watchers. Then add a Vic Braden tennis facility, a very good spa, and enough dining options to keep you from getting bored and you have the makings of solid a Hawaiian beach vacation. Let’s put it this way: I chose it for a 10th wedding anniversary trip last August. Other guests sing its praises on Tripadvisor.
What’s the Deal: The Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island is celebrating it's 20th anniversary by knocking 20% off Ocean View rooms (and higher category rooms). If you book one, you’ll also get 20% off all food and beverage charges, spa treatments and beach activities.
Caveat: The offer is good through December 20, 2010, subject to availability. 20% discount does not apply to Gratuities or taxes and cannot be used for Golf, Tennis or Merchandise.
