Fairmont Kea Lani

5

This stunning all-suite hotel offers a world class stay on Maui, with renowned Fairmont service.

With its glistening white exterior, grand arches and marble lobby, Fairmont Kea Lani makes an impression. Add a backdrop of lush green hills, a dramatic volcano, golden sands and rich blue waters, and you’ll begin to see why this is somewhere special.

The resort fronts a lovely stretch of sand. Enclosed with lava rock at both ends, Polo Beach is a secluded area with calm waters, particularly in the mornings. Activities here include snorkelling, sailing and kayaking. If lounging poolside is more your style, there are three pools to choose from: two lagoon pools – one with a swim-up bar – connected by a 140-foot slide, and a quieter adults-only pool with ocean views. Dining at the Kea Lani is award-winning. There are casual eateries for daytime buffets or picnics, but come the evening you’ll want to splash out at Kō – the signature fine dining restaurant serving up cuisine inspired by Hawaii's sugarcane plantation era – and Nick’s Fishmarket Maui, with its fresh seafood specialties and 2000-bottle wine cellar. At sunset, make your way to the Luana Lounge and ask the bartender for a Moki Sunset cocktail, available for one hour only. The award-winning Willow Stream Spa combines locally-inspired experiences with ancient Hawaiian tradition and the latest in spa technology.

The one-bedroom suites are spacious and elegant, with a contemporary design and beautiful furnishings throughout, separate living room and balcony. Recently renovated, views vary from the resort gardens to the Haleakala volcano or the ocean. To watch the sunrise over the volcano from your balcony, opt for a Fairmont Mountainside Suite.
