    My husband and I held our wedding and reception at Coconut Grove - it was absolutely amazing! Mew and Sara (with Jots of Thoughts) brought to life exactly what we'd hoped for. The staff on the Fairmont campus are SO accommodating, prompt, and around to ensure your happiness and comfort. The pool is great as well as the overall grounds.

    My husband and I did a lot of research on the different resorts on the Kona side of Big Island, interviewed 4 hotels and asked a ton of questions. We ultimately chose Fairmont Orchid because of its location and size, its amenities, its beauty, its price points and also because of our wedding coordinator, Hannah Bahm. Hannah supported us, answered all of our questions and was on top of everything from our very first conversation about the wedding until the conclusion of our big day and beyond. Hannah was responsive, professional, organized, flexible and made sure that all of the details of our wedding (and there were many!) were given due attention and were smoothly executed so that my husband and I could focus on our priorities. We were in very good hands. We held all of our wedding weekend functions at the Fairmont and were so impressed by how versatile the resort and catering services were in making each event unique in terms of space, ambience and food. Besides the wedding events, our guests who stayed at Fairmont enjoyed the pool area, the beach and the lagoon where they could snorkel and paddle board. There is also a nice coastal walk past the Coconut Grove where we saw sea turtles and someone net fishing. The food/drinks at the restaurants on property were delicious (with good number of veggie options) but definitely pricey -- but everything on Big Island just seemed to be pricier than even New York City prices. That said, there is a Foodland about 5 minutes drive, an Island Gourmet about 10 minutes drive, and a Costco in Kona about 45 minutes drive, from Fairmont. We did not feel "trapped" in Fairmont at all given its range of amenities, and its location between Waimea and Kona gave us quite a bit of options with a car. The downside is that it is far (2.5 hours one-way) from the Volcano National Park, so we will have to go back again! All in all, we were very very pleased with how everything turned out during our unforgettable wedding weekend.
