A Fairmont Kea Lani Transformation Project
2022 – 2023
In March of 2022, we are excited to embark upon our hoʻomaka hou (a new beginning) multimillion-dollar transformation of our collection of Suites and Villas. Each of our 413 one-bedroom suites and 37 two-story villas will be completely reimagined from top to bottom to create an ultimately luxurious space that evokes stories of our island’s rich cultural heritage. We have curated the finest furnishings, touchpoints and amenities to ensure every guest feels genuinely cared for in an exquisitely designed space.
As the enhancements unfold, it is our promise to ensure our guests continue to have an exceptional stay. To minimize the impact to resort guests, the hoʻomaka hou project will follow a strategic phased approach.
Talk Story Series
Hoʻomaka Hou translates to ʻa new beginning’ in Hawaiian. This name represents the major transformation we are undergoing on the property, in the building and within ourselves. We are thrilled to share the inspiration behind our journey and reveal the new enhancements happening at Fairmont Kea Lani.
Suite & Villa Transformation Sneak Peek
Our beach-chic oceanfront villas reflect the serene beauty and history of their South Maui shoreline location and the Palauea ahupuaʻa (an ancient fishing village).

Kilohana (Corner Suite) Bedroom
Check out our new corner suite (Kilohana) bedroom design. Inspired by the shade of the nui (the coconut tree) the space provides respite from the heat of the day. The cool browns and soft whites of the furnishings are accentuated by the Hawaiian kapa patterned rug, it’s designs echoing the pattern of the dappled shade casts from the palm fronds.
Kilohana (Corner Suite) Living Room
The suites draw inspiration from the ʻAlalākeiki and Kealaikahiki channels, the prime waterways connecting South Maui with the nearby island of Kahoʻolawe. Furnishings, fixtures, artwork and textures are reminiscent of the ocean, water currents, and coastlines in each elegantly appointed room. Hawaiians and Polynesian cultures have long viewed the water as that which connects us.
