Hoʻomaka Hou: A New Beginning

Fairmont Kea Lani’s transformed suites and villas have been unveiled and are awaiting guest arrival. Our 413 one-bedroom suites and 37 two-story villas have been artfully redesigned in ways that evoke stories of our island’s rich cultural heritage and accentuate the natural beauty of Hawai‘i.

Resort enhancements and program enrichments continue to unfold, with the second phase of our Hoʻomaka Hou project focused around Fairmont Kea Lani’s lobby. An elevated arrival experience, creation of an interactive Hawaiian Cultural Center and addition of a premiere food & beverage outlet, among other exciting updates, will complete Fairmont Kea Lani’s transformation.

Panoramic Corner Suites

Perfect for special occasions and romantic getaways, these impressive Kilohana Suites offer 1,100 square feet of living space with an oversized wrap-around corner lanai (400 square feet) featuring spectacular panoramic ocean and sunset views.

Villas at Kea Lani

Our reimagined villas were designed to capture a sense of place and share the history of our island, incorporating elements that encapsulate Fairmont Kea Lani’s storied location. The color palette mirrors the hues of our shoreline and ocean, as well as the tropical foliage of Maui. The artwork featured in each villa is created by local Hawai‘i artists and the natural elements in the furnishings pay homage to ancient Hawaiian voyaging canoes and fishing villages. The villa’s expansive layout creates gathering spaces for ‘ohana that continue out to the exterior, providing a functional yet luxurious home away from home. Our new villa design feels both intentional and effortless, modern and comfortable.

Transformed Suite Experience

Inspired by the Kealaikahiki and ‘Alalākeiki channels, the two waterways that separate our shoreline from Kaho‘olawe and Lāna‘i, our Ocean Suites embody the subtle luxury of the sea. Textures, furnishings and artwork blend ancient Hawaiian tradition with modern elegance, encouraging an unexpected connection to Maui.

Frequently Asked Questions

All available suites and villas are beautifully transformed and awaiting guest arrival. All incoming  guests are guaranteed to receive newly renovated accommodations.

The transformation of our suites and villas began in March 2022. It is with great excitement that we enter 2023 with reimagined suites and villas for all incoming guests.

While our suites and villas are fully transformed, resort enhancements and program enrichments continue to unfold. The second phase of our transformation project will begin in July and focus on our lobby, resulting in an elevated arrival experience, creation of a Hawaiian cultural center, and addition of a premiere food & beverage outlet. These transformations are expected to reach completion by December 2023.

As resort enhancements continue to unfold, construction will be contained to isolated areas of the resort. Guests may experience noise disruptions but at this time, we do not foresee any impact to services or amenities. All pools, beaches and activities will remain open and fully functional. Beginning in July, LUANA Lounge located in the Main Lobby will close and Fairmont Kea Lani’s front desk and concierge will be relocated to the south entrance of the resort. These projects are expected to reach completion by December 2023, just in time for our festive season!

The interior design of Fairmont Kea Lani’s new suites & villas was a collaborative effort with input from numerous kupuna, kumu, and Hawaiian cultural consultants, as well as our resort colleagues and local community, all brought together and executed by a design team.
