As the Mauna Loa eruption is located at a distance from Fairmont Orchid (approximately 60  miles away), it does not pose a threat to the resort. Additionally at this time, lava is not flowing towards populated areas and does not pose a threat to communities. There is no reason at this time for travelers to change or alter their leisure or business plans. It’s business as usual on property and all amenities and services are available. As such, our cancelation policy will remain in place.

For real time updates, please visit:

 The safety and security of our guests and colleagues are top priorities at Fairmont Orchid.

  • Hawaiʻi Volcano Observatory confirms the eruption began at about 11:30pm Sunday (11.27). Officials say that as of this morning (11.28), the lava flow has now migrated to a rift zone on the northeast flank.  
  • Air Access: All flights into Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keāhole (KOA) are operating normally.
  • Accommodations and Activities: All accommodations, activities, and attractions on the island are also operating normally. Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park has closed the Maunaloa summit until further notice.
