Fairmont Kea Lani as Featured In Condé Nast Traveler

We are thrilled to announce that Fairmont Kea Lani has been featured in Condé Nast Traveler.

“On the sun-kissed shores of Maui, an iconic resort has emerged from a transformative journey. Fairmont Kea Lani, a beacon of luxury on Wailea’s pristine Polo Beach—Hawai’i’s sole all-suite and villa property—unveiled its spectacular metamorphosis in January 2024, and it’s a sight to behold. This thoughtful renewal, however, transcends mere aesthetics. Deeply rooted in Maui’s cultural heritage since its inception, Fairmont Kea Lani now features the island’s most comprehensive cultural center, a testament to its commitment to preserving and celebrating native traditions. Coupled with the island’s largest ocean-facing bar, this resort’s latest chapter promises an unparalleled immersion into the heart and soul of Maui.

Surrounded by the rich history of Palauea, where fishing villages once thrived and sweet potato fields flourished, Fairmont Kea Lani has graced these lands since its debut in December 1991. The resort’s distinctive architecture pays homage to two emblematic Hawaiian landmarks—’Iolani Palace and the Royal Hawaiian Resort—a masterful fusion of tradition and modernity. In Hawaiian, Kea Lani translates to “heavenly white,” a fitting moniker for the white façade of this luxurious Wailea oasis. Now, in its latest incarnation, this beloved retreat dazzles with a revitalized exterior and interior, seamlessly blending modern luxuries with an enduring connection to Hawaiian culture.”

Fairmont Kea Lani has been nominated in the 2024 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards.
