"Fairmont Orchid and Mauna Lani" Puako by brewjohnson

Puako Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 45 photos

Puako is an area located on the "Kohola Coast" of the Big Island of Hawaii. The two main resorts here are the Mauna Lani (a huge resort with many hotel and condo options, restaurants, etc., within it) and the Fairmont Orchid, which I believe is officially part of the Mauna Lani development, although the Fairmont Orchid feels separate both in style and location.

I don't believe there is a resort here outside of the resort developments, however, the hotels have shops and some phenomenal restaurants (Brown's at the Fairmont and the Canoe House at the Mauna Lani to name a couple of my favorites).
