After nearly 2 years of no travel, we chose the fairmont for our family vacation and was the best decision! Every staff was welcoming and helpful, kids had a blast at the pool while mom and dad enjoyed a well deserved cocktails. Get the breakfast package as they have the best buffet. Overall we can’t wait to come back.

We stayed at the Fairmont Kea Lani back in August as a big celebration trip for my birthday. We were supposed to go last summer, but like everyone else in the world we had to reschedule due to Covid-19. So we've had this vacation planned for almost THREE years. There's no way it could live up to the hype right?! Well it did. The Fairmont was great about honoring our initial rate and simply changing our dates. The in house concierge team basically had to assist me in planning it twice and they were beyond amazing. All our excursions went perfectly, and all our dining reservations were in place. Even the hard to score places! (They got us the best table at Mama's Fish House!) The staff were amazing from the top to the bottom. They had just recently reopened and I know they were severely understaffed, but you couldn't tell. The cabana service was beyond amazing and we had great meals at all the restaurants. Ko and Nick's are both outstanding. I've seen some people complain about the age of the rooms and facilities, but I didn't see a problem with anything. Is the place brand new? No. But it is an enormous property with the most beautiful grounds of any resort in that strip. Our room was immaculate and well appointed. We had the deluxe ocean view suite and it was well worth the extra cost. I even reached out to the general manager a couple of times to compliment specific employees and received a warm, heartfelt reply almost immediately. So I have to say that we were beyond thrilled with our stay, and if we ever go to Maui again we will definitely stay there, and in our travels elsewhere we will always consider a Fairmont resort simply based upon the excellent treatment we received while we were there.

Great hotel! The staff went above and beyond all requests and needs. The pools are wonderful. They have a fun waterslide and pool bar. I did the sunset yoga and worked out in the gym. They only let in 12 people at a time in the fitness center. When I was there it was at capacity. It’s probably best to go around 5am or evening. The property has… Read more
Great hotel! The staff went above and beyond all requests and needs. The pools are wonderful. They have a fun waterslide and pool bar. I did the sunset yoga and worked out in the gym. They only let in 12 people at a time in the fitness center. When I was there it was at capacity. It’s probably best to go around 5am or evening. The property has a great beach path that I would walk everyday. They also have a courtesy car that will take you over to Wailea to shop for groceries.I would suggest this due to the prices at the hotel. We had room service when we arrived and it was almost $100 for a salad, wings and a pina colada. Read less

This is the most beautiful resort in Maui in my opinion. The service was impeccable from start to finish. We had the best time at the pools and beach. The lobby is stunning and rooms are very spacious. Luxury experience!
