Hawaii's only luxury all-suite and villa oceanfront resort, located in sunny Wailea Maui.

Fairmont Kea Lani Maui

Locals claim that “Maui no ka oi” ("Maui is the best") and those privileged enough to stay at Fairmont Kea Lani would have to agree. Set along sunny Polo Beach and recognized for its attentive service, Fairmont Kea Lani is Hawai'i’s only all-suite-and-villa oceanfront resort. Choose from one-bedroom suites with private lanais, or two- and three-bedroom villas with private plunge pools and gourmet kitchens. The resort lies adjacent to the award-winning Wailea Golf Club and offers three pools, an acclaimed spa, children’s programs and some of Hawai'i’s most spectacular sunsets.

Hotel Tip

The poolside suites are on the ground floor, steps from the family pool— perfect for families with young children. –Suzette Mack San Jose, California

WOW - Highly Recommended

By: Karl

Reviewed on: 20 Feb 2014

Our travel agent had recommended the Fairmont Kea Lani in Maui. I had been to Wailea before and wanted a great hotel to celebrate a milestone anniversary. WOW, can't imagine our 6-night stay being any better than what it was! We liked the room and my wife loved the oversized bathtub. We got an upgraded room and it was better than expected! We dined at Nick's Fishmarket which we liked but we completely loved Ko. The concierge staff - we can't speak highly enough of them. From all the pre-trip arrangements to all their help while we were there to the reminders they left us the night before our next day's excursion to their recommendations, they were all fabulous. The concierge got us a rsvp at Mama's. We got seated a little late but it was worth the wait - a prime table right at the front windows! You might say that this is what is expected at a highly rated hotel but their level of service was something we hadn't experienced before. We will return in the future? Definitely!!!

We just spent 10 days at the Fairmont Kea Lani. Our room was incredible, we felt like we had our own apartment, it was so spacious! The staff were all so welcoming and helpful. We took advantage of the spa which was also amazing. I can not say enough about how wonderful this hotel experience was.

Just returned from a lovely trip to the Fairmont Kea Lani in Maui, and couldn't be happier. Our arrival was late and yet we were met with a happy friendly bellman, a front desk clerk who was gracious and accommodating, and a lovely spacious room. The beds were comfy, the pillows perfect and the scenery was beautiful. We both managed to use the Willow Spa while we were there which was heavenly. Our entire stay was wonderful. The hardest decision we had to make during our visit was which pool to sit at - and of course there's the gorgeous beach. I would definitely return to the Fairmont - it was wonderful.

Our stay at the Fairmont Kea Lani Maui was all we dreamed it would be. It was a tropical paradise...Sun, fun, adventure and relaxation. We were greeted at the Fairmont with a beautiful Lei and a delicious tropical beverage. I can't think of a better way to start a vacation.

Fabulous! The suites are spacious and comfortable and very quiet. The hotel staff is friendly, welcoming and among the most professional we've ever met. The housekeeping staff greeted us by name in the hallways and made sure (without being asked) that the coffees, teas, and bathroom supplies were stocked with what we liked. When we complained about smelling cigarette smoke from a guest somewhere in our wing, the hotel staff acted immediately to identify the guest and speak to them about hotel policy and Hawaii State law. The water/tea station in the lobby is a hospitable touch. The breakfast buffet is excellent, and the omelette chefs are to be praised for their professional service and excellent cooking. Grounds, public areas and rooms are immaculate. We would definitely recommend this hotel (and already have!) and would go back there.

The suites were perfect for our family of 6 , the food healthy and tasty but best of all was the service by every single staff member from the housekeeping staff to the front desk- genuine warmth and a desire to help and please their guests. But the partial view of the ocean was really a partial view of the Maui Mountains through the tops of palm trees. It was sweet to hear the birds but we had expected to hear and see some ocean from our balconys. But the warm and service of the property made up for this disappointment .

The Fairmont Kea Lani in Maui is wonderful! The staff are professional, personable and only interested in making the client's stay memorable and problem-free. From friendly greeters and reception to cafe and restaurant personnel, you feel welcome and cared for. It's a beautiful property with excellent amenities. In addition to hotel restaurants, the Kea Lani is situated close to countless dining choices and the concierge is happy to assist with all of guests' needs and interests. It is the only place we choose to stay when we visit Maui!

Our 50th Anniversary Trip

By: Lenny

Reviewed on: 10 Aug 2018

The KeaLani hotel is it an outdated old lady in bad need of refurbishing all of its suites. The rooms, while large have many shortcomings. The sinks in the main powder room are ridiculous for today’s day and age. There is virtually no Storage or proper cupboard facilities. I counted in our suite had as many as seven or eight doorways leading in and out of living areas. A modernization is long overdue. No proper storage facility for suitcases. The shower area is completely exposed and needs a door. In short, it is not worth $1500 per night. It is a much overrated and overpriced facility which I would not recommend to any traveler. There must be a better value and much more suitable properties somewhere on the island.

We choose the Fairmont because they have the best hotel beach in Maui and it’s amazing for kids. We have spent time on many islands and have found the water, waves, sand, etc. at the Fairmont to be easy and approachable for adults and children alike. The hotel is super kid friendly. My 6 year old son loves the water slide. The staff are great. The restaurants are very good. The rooms are spacious and the top floor balcony views are stunning.

The Resort Delivered

By: Gary Rahl

Reviewed on: 09 Jan 2019

We stayed 5 nights at Fairmont Kea Lani Maui in December 2019. We were there during one of the busiest times of the year. It was clear the resort was busy, but a very high level of quality was delivered nonetheless. The pools were beautiful, and poolside service was good. The beach was small but very nice, and free equipment was available for use. We were able to snorkel right off the beach and saw a green turtle right away. The spa is high quality, and the options at breakfast were plentiful. We’re we to travel to Maui again, we would definitely stay at the Fairmont.
