The Spain international has opted to pledge his future to the Basque club, just as team-mate Asier Del Horno nears a deal with Chelsea.
Orbaiz has concurred on a new five-year contract with Bilbao and his decision will be a major boost to the club.
The 26-year-old has spent five seasons with Bilbao and could reach double figures if he sees out his new deal.
The defender's commitment to Bilbao is a timely boost for the club, who recently missed out on the Copa del Rey final after a penalty shoot-out defeat to Real Betis.
