Makahiki at the Orchid

Makahiki season is a time of great harvest, celebration and gratitude in the ancient Hawaiian New Year Festival. In the spirit of this season, Fairmont Orchid will be hosting our first annual Makahiki at the Orchid festival from September through November. We’d like to invite you to participate in our line-up of events that honor this time of renewal, relaxation and rejuvenation.
