Beach + Island

The Best U.S. Beach Resorts

Fairmont Orchid

Big Island, Hawaii

Our readers say: "The lobby overlooks the ocean, and in the evenings, you’re greeted by a ukulele player or a local musician." This stucco resort on the Kohala Coast is fronted by a white sand beach. Rooms have lanais, rattan furniture, and carpeting with bamboo motifs, but "did not quite live up to the expectations I have of a Fairmont resort—they need a little improvement." Brown’s Beach House focuses on fish dishes such as crab-crusted mahimahi. Norio’s has a 14-seat sushi bar and dishes like sea urchin eggs, Hawaiian abalone, and octopus. "They serve you in style."
