Fairmont Hotels and Resorts on the islands of Hawaii and Bermuda have become part of the local communities here, providing world-class hospitality and cultural quirks. White domes and life-sized Hawaiian murals set the tone for your stay at The Kea Lani Maui Hotel, while a traditional lei greeting welcomes guests upon arrival. Immerse yourself in island culture on the hotel's Canoe Experience and Cultural Property tour, or drop your kids off at the children's club, where they can learn a few conversational Hawaiian phrases. A contemporary spa facility has special treatments like the Energy Journey -which allows guests to restore their inner balance with ingredients grown on Maui -plus Chamomile Body Polishes, Magnesium and Jade Wraps, and Relaxation Massages. After all that pampering, dine at one of the on-site restaurants and choose from seafood, internationally-influenced dishes, or bakery and deli treats.

Wonderful Couple Getaway

Prefect. All Staff very helpful and very nice. Staff was able to answer all questions and setup things for us to do and took us to the events they scheduled for us. Gave us maps with directions as to how to get to different malls and shopping centers to go shopping and sight seeing. Perfect room service and maid service. We plan another trip to Hawaii... Loved it..

nick's is outstanding quality, delicious, romantic atmosphere and impeccable service!our kids loved the attention and had great kids meals as well. if you are in the mood try the hotel great room service and ask for tablecloth to dine in your private lanai at a reasonable price. ko is good but the only time where service was slow. breakfast buffet very good with an extensive variety, even though the location now has only a garden view. the pool bar and grill was very good too! if you need a sandwich, a pizza, snacks, drinks, desserts...the deli is very good. for the best sushi go to sansei in kihei, but ask concierge to reserve it for you...it is very busy! (it would be nice to have another restaurant open for dinner on site beside nick's ko, room srvice and the deli pizza shop).

Best vacation ever!!

The hotel is amazing for families. Lots to do and you don't have to leave the hotel! We stayed for 6 nights, 3 days we just stayed put and enjoyed the beautiful beach (you can rent boogie boards and snorkel equipment beachside) and pool. Poolside dining was fantastic! The waitstaff was friendly and helpful and the drinks delicious! The transportation provided by the hotel was also great, we could have them take us to a local restaurant and not worry about having a drink or two with dinner ;) The rooms were great with microwave and fridge, closets smelled a little musty but it's a very humid climate so this would be hard to eliminate altogether. An amazing hotel we loved ever minute of it!

Always a Fan of The Fairmont

We love the Fairmont. This was our first time at the Kea Lani, and we would definitely return. We've stayed at other Fairmont locations, and this one did not disappoint. The Fairmont Orchid in the Big Island is something to see! If you're staying in Wailea, definitely choose the Fairmont! It was CLEAN, huge rooms (and the baseline price), and gorgeous.

Beautiful babymoon

My husband and i went to Maui for a babymoon - i'm 7 months pregnant. We had a fabulous time. While there were a lot of families there - the great thing is there's an adult pool open 24 hours a day, so we hung there. The beach is right in front of the hotel - beautiful, swimming beach. Umbrellas cost per hour, but worth it for us. We also rented snorkel equipment and went right in front of the hotel - incredible coral reel and lots of fish. The breakfast buffet is a little pricey, we only did it once, but it's gorgeous and tons of options. There's a deli where you can buy yogurt, fruit, pastries, coffee etc so that's what we did instead. We ate at Ko, one of the restaurants on site - food was delicious and service was really great. Had a fabulous prenatal massage - costly, but a nice indulgence. The concierge was very helpful - i had done a ton of research and they helped focus us on what we really needed to see. We went 5 minutes by car down the street to Big Beach - the largest undeveloped beach in maui - it was a nice afternoon away from the hotel. Overall, the size of the suites makes the Kea Lani completely worth the price. We watched the best sunsets of our lives from the comfort of our own lanai.

Matteo's Pizzeria just a short drive away was yummy affordable italian food. The line to get in was a little long and intimidating at first, but it moved very fast -- you order and pay up front and then are seated afterwards. nice casual dining.

Awesome

From the moment we arrived, we knew this was a going to be a great experience. The bell staff and front desk were wonderfully accommodating and this type of reception was consistent for the rest of our stay. The suites are spacious and comfortable, and the huge bathrooms are delightful. The food was outstanding, both at the restaurants and room service, we had such a lovely view that we had dinner twice on the lanai with the sunset. Cafe Ciao was perfect for a quick/light breakfast, snacks and drinks. The beach was great, and the attendants were as helpful as they were cheerful. Beautiful hotel, great service, I wish we had had more time there!! Definitely get your money's worth.
