“Paradise”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Wife and I stayed here June 1-6 and we still can't stop thinking about this place. Everything about this place was awesome. Ocean view room overlooking the adult pool, third floor but could still see the ocean while lying in bed. Great staff, pools we're never too crowded, Polo beach out front was excellent. Very nice room and loved the bathroom/shower. Great breakfast buffet but thought KO underwhelmed, very small portions. Wish we had tried Nicks instead. We checked out the Four Seasons and although it also looked very nice, the property seemed small and cramped, pools were small compared the the Fairmont. Can't wait to go back!!

Room Tip: Pick up breakfast/lunch @ Cafe Cio across from KO and save a bundle!

We stayed here for our honeymoon in September 2013, and had an amazing time. Al the rooms are suites with a separate lounge, kitchen type area, big bath tub and walk in shower. Lovely patio area with tables and chairs and sun loungers. The grounds are immaculate and beautiful and the staff cannot do enough to help you. On check in we received a nice cocktail and a lei each which was a nice touch. On departure we were given some nice cold bottles of water. I think the rules have changed now but we had free parking when we stayed and no resort fee which also saves some money. We did not have breakfast included in our stay but ate there one day and the food was lovely. We got breakfast from the cafe each day as they do french toast and pancakes to take away and we took it back to our room and ate on our patio.
There is also a pathway you can walk along by the beach which goes past all the other hotels, nice walk in the evening. Nearby shopping area with a cheeseburger island which we loved (being from the uk) we don't get burgers like that at home!! The area is quite pricey but we thought as it's our honeymoon it was okay to pay a bit more money. But you will definitely not regret booking this hotel, it is amazing and we can't wait to go back!!

WOW! Just wow! Its not often you visit somewhere which looks EXACTLY as its marketing shows. This hotel is stunning and the staff are absolutely fabulous. From the minute we walked in, our jaws dropped at the stunning views and beautiful property.

Our Ocean View Suite was perfectly sized for a few days away with girlfriends (2 queen sized beds plus a queen sized pull out sofa bed plus double sinks and HUGE bathroom - perfect for three girls!) and provided the perfect recharge after two weeks of full on travel. The view from our room out across the pools (yes there are three!) and onto the private beach and Pacific Ocean was picture postcard perfect.

The swim up bar and waterslide was our favourite spot to finish up our busy day of midday snoozes, snorkles on the reef and tasty lunches in the AMA Bar & Grill. The breakfast buffet was also a favourite.
The staff are friendly and very helpful. Having stayed in many Fairmont resorts worldwide, I can honestly say I have a new favourite and The Fairmont Kea Lani is top of my list!

Perfect destination for couples, friends or even families. Conference space looked fantastic too.

We just returned from a week at the Kea Lani and love this property. The hotel was perfect in every way - the ONLY thing I would change is to add an inch to the curtain so the room stays dark in the morning. The staff is wonderful and very friendly. The 2 room suites are perfect for a family and the beach, grounds and pools are magnificent! Cant wait to go back and wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: Corner suite has a great terrace.

The Kea Lani is one of the best hotels in the world. From the moment we walked in, the staff was warm and inviting. The suites were spacious, 3 closets and a huge bathroom. The food and drink was 'tourist' price but there were grocery stories close by. I will definitely come back. Book early for a good rate.

Room Tip: We had an oceanfront suite with ocean views from inside the room. Rooms 730-742 full view plus easy...

We just returned home from another wonderful trip to Maui and stay at the Fairmont Kea Lani for 7 of us. Had great accommodations in an ocean villa which had all we needed for an enjoyable time. It was a challenge with 5 teenagers along, but everything worked out nicely. Ronnie-Ann, our guest services representative, came through again for us with exceptional service, though all the staff, from housekeeping to bellman were nothing short of terrific! The Fairmont is where we will stay on our upcoming vacations to Maui, no doubt about it.

Room Tip: Call as early as possible for best rates and availability...ask for Ronnie-Ann.

We just had to come back here. We were here in October 2013 and had the best time. So this June was no different. We love the staff, from the front desk with Luz and Tammy who will accommodate any of your request to make your stay experience one you won't forget to the beauty that the hotel has to offer.. You will meet Dennis at the the beach who will get you settled with your beach umbrella, launge chairs and towels and who checks on you to make sure you are comfortable in your little bit of heaven spot. A must thing to do is an early morning canoe ride with the boys, Bubba and Justin, they are the BEST and will take you and educate you on the surrounding on the area around the Kea Lani, and the species of fishes that swim below the magnificent canoe of the Fairmont and can't forget to mention that they go out of their way to find and get close to the turtles (Honu's) that are soo beautiful and unbelievable to see such great creatures next to you. Noel at the Ko' bar restaurant is a great ball of energy and fun tot talk to. We have been to a few hotels in the Island, from Kapalua, Lahaina, Kaanapali, Napili, Kihei, Makena and for the past two times to Wailea and we are already planning our next trip back to this Magnificent hotel to see the whales who welcomes us each time with the Aloha Spirit.
