Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui is Hawaii's only all-suite and villa luxury oceanfront resort, situated on 22 acres of tropical landscape in sunny Wailea, Maui. This Maui hotel offers spacious one-bedroom suites with 860 square feet of luxurious living space, as well as two-story villas that are steps from the ocean and feature private courtyards, fully equipped kitchens, plunge pools, and barbecue grills.

Both fine dining and casual options may be found in the resort's four restaurants, which include a gourmet bakery and deli and the award-winning signature restaurant, Ko. Other hotel amenities include the full service Spa Kea Lani, 24-hour fitness center, a year-round kid's club, boutique shopping, full wedding coordination services, 36,000 feet of meeting and events function space, and a business center. Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui resort is also conveniently located within minutes of Wailea's championship golf courses and tennis courts.

Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui was recently voted as having the Best Hawaiian Cultural Program on Maui. The detailed program offers authentic Hawaiian experiences that range from educational classes, to cultural music and celebrations, to local dining experiences, all available within a luxury hotel setting.

The Hawaiian Canoe Experience teaches guests Hawaiian traditions while offering a fun adventure. Participants learn the basics of paddling, as well as the history of the canoe and its importance to Hawaiian heritage. Used by native Hawaiians to cross the rough channels between the islands, the outrigger canoe was built out of koa and other hard native woods. Not only an instrument of fishing and sustenance gathering, the outrigger became the long distance means by which Hawaiians, and the greater Polynesian society projected both settlements and conquests. The Hawaiian Canoe Experience fills up quickly and advanced reservations are required.

However you choose to spend your time, be sure to open your mind and your heart to the Hawaiian culture. Hawaiians believe that we need to be conscious and grateful of all the things around us: our health, our family, and nature. The incredible culture is based on the fundamental principles of love, support, hospitality, and giving without the expectation of receiving.

Greening Your Life: Part of the Apple Vacations Greening Your Life initiative, this property reduces laundry water, saving more than 50 million gallons per year, while an in-house water bottling system is used to reduce the amount of plastic bottles throughout the resort.

The state-of-the-art eco-mode thermostat, installed in all guest rooms, is connected to the hotel's database and automatically turns on when a guest checks in and automatically shuts off when a guest checks out.

Over 200 gallons of cooking oil per week is donated and turned into biofuel. On top of that, all disposable containers used on the property are made of earth-friendly products like corn or potatoes. Speaking of produce, nearly 90% served within the hotel is locally grown.

    This is a 3-star, compared to other 5-star hotels

    After having just gotten back from the St. Regis in Bali, it’s difficult not to compare the two, as they’re both considered to be 5 star hotels. At the St. Regis, the staff bent over backward to wait on us hand and foot. The staff at the Fairmont did not. The pool servers served people sitting right next to us, but completely ignored us. The men running the courtesy vehicles would tell us that a vehicle would pick us up in 5-10 minutes, and then they’d proceed to fill up said courtesy vehicles with people who clearly arrived there after we did. The restaurants had almost no vegetarian options, so we kept having to go offsite for most of our meals. The buffet breakfast was $93 for two people, and it was severely lacking in options and quality. We had a more reasonably priced dinner at Ferraro’s at the Four Seasons which included an appetizer, two drinks, dinner and dessert. The breakfast buffet was free at the St. Regis in Bali, and the food was outrageously delicious. They also gave us late checkout, til 4 pm. The Fairmont refused to give us late checkout. They also charged me for premium internet, even though I did not purchase it, AND I’m a Le Club AccorHotels member anyway, so it should’ve been free. Also, why do you have to pay to use cabanas? They’re free at the Four Seasons, and it seems like something that should be included in the resort fee. Overall, we just felt like they nickel-and-dimed us at every turn, and it left a bad taste in our mouths. We were sad to leave the St. Regis in Bali. We’re not sad to be leaving the Fairmont. I give this hotel a 3 star rating, at best. This experience has confirmed my preference for Marriott/St. Regis hotels, which is really too bad, because I always dreamed of staying at the Kea Lani, but it didn’t live up to expectations.

    This resort is amazing. Quite and elegant. We love eating at Ko's Restaurant. The Ahi on the Rocks is so fresh and the service is more that we are used to at most resorts. Our waiter Drew is our new #1 Waiter! Highly recommend this resort.

    Should have chosen the hotel next door...

    We recently stayed at this property... the service is overall friendly and helpful but in our opinion, the resort needs some serious updating and renovating. Rooms are large but decor is just okay.... Esp for the price of $800/night.... Even the hotels entrance is outdated, and you can’t even see the beach from the adult pool.... And trust me, if you are in Hawaii without your kids, having a great adult pool is key because there are so many families taking over the other pools... Kind of a bummer bc chances are, you are in Hawaii to see as much as the ocean as possible. The breakfast buffet was pretty mundane. Not a huge selection and nothing out of the ordinary. However, the food was very good. The spa was great as well, and my husband and i both loved our massages. On average, drinks were $14-18 and you’d be lucky to get a spot at the tiny swim up bar. Again friendly service but Fairmont, please update this property. Such a shame as it’s on a beautiful stretch of beach and conveniently located. For the price, I wish I would have taken a bit smaller room and stayed next door and in a newer, nicer hotel..... But if you are looking for a bigger room, esp if traveling with kids, this spot is for you.

    Nice Resort hotel

    This hotel is huge with lots of amentities. The Junior suite with ocean view are nice but a little bit expensive. Pool are quite crowed and should have more beds with Umbrella. A resort with this price should not charge so high for the Cabana Rental. Staff are nice and friendly. We have good and quick checkin.
