Fairmont Kea Lani
- What's Included
I work for a large travel agency(Tzell Travel) and I just got back from this fabulous hotel. It was our 45 Anniversary and this is our 3rd time here since our honeymoon. Cant say enough good things about this fabulous hotel, from the beautiful suites to the views, beach,pool,restaurants amongst so many other great things. I send so many clients here. The staff from the second you get in is the friendliest staff I have ever seen.. From Aulani Kealoha head of sales to Brenda Swain at leisure sales and Blair Leisure sales coordinator to Taylan Azeka the guest relations manager to Ron, Jane and Dina the concierges and to a fabulous stafff I cant say enough..Its safe, beautiful and a fabulous resort.,and that is why I send so many clients there.
We have been to Hawaii and Maui countless times. We used to go to Kaanapali and Kapalua, but the traffic has gotten so bad through Lahaina that we'd prefer to stay home than make that drive any more. As a result, we are now frequenting the Wailea coast. We have now stayed at most of the Wailea resorts and the Fairmont is now our go-to property.First off, all the rooms are suites. We reserved a partial ocean view and at check-in asked about the possibility of upgrading. Charito was wonderful and worked with us so that we could upgrade to not only an ocean view room, but in one of the larger suites (1100 sq. ft. vs the normal 860). Throughout our stay the front desk was equally eager to assist if we had any questions.Dining - the breakfast buffet is very good. The guy making the omelettes had us asking each other if we'd ever had better. KO is worth visiting - we ate there multiple times. On a few off nights we got takeout spaghetti and garlic bread at the cafe and it was amazing. Concierge - Kendra was our girl. She made a few recommendations for restaurants as well as entree choices and was right on. Just sorry I missed seeing her our last night at KO to tell her the short ribs were as good as the pork loin and the fresh catch. Bar - specifically LUANA. The bartender Aaron invented a bourbon drink called the Training Room. I had several made by Aaron as well as Chris when Aaron was not working. They were all fantastic. If you like Manhattans or Old Fashioneds, one of these is a must.The Fairmont does have the pesky and hated Resort Fee, but you do get a few things for it. And it INCLUDES parking, so we didn't feel completely gouged like we do at the other resorts that have the resort fee and also charge for parking.Last - kudos to Charles Head, the GM. Charles was in the process of transferring, but the quality of our stay fell under his leadership and we say thank you to that.A great property - we look forward to our next visit.
This resort is beautiful. Loved the fact that every room is a suite. Makes it so nice when one person wants to sleep and one wants to stay up. The large balcony was wonderful to relax on. Even though I left a tip for the maid service every day, they never took it. Washers and Dryers on every floor. It's free to use. The shuttle service will take you anywhere local, and I don't think we ever had to wait more than 10 minutes to be picked up. The beach is sandy, no rocks. And I loved that there was an adult only pool. Don't quite understand why the swim up bar is not at this pool?? I realize this is a upscale resort and it's Maui but all the restaurants at the hotel were very expensive. We only ate at the hotel restaurants once because of this. We both got the breakfast buffet and with tax and tip it was $84. We usually took the shuttle to the Shops at Wailea and ate at one of the restaurants there. And then would go to the grocery store next to it and buy some snacks and drinks for the room. Most drinks were also between $14 and $18. Another thing was to many cabanas taking up valuable space around the pools and they are rarely used. At least when we were there. I suspect because they too are very expensive. I heard $200 a day. $125 after 1pm. I'm sure they are not out of line with other hotels in the Wailea area, just be aware.
If you want to feel like a local king and queen - the Fairmont Kea Lani is the place to go. The people were very professional and helpful with lots of aloha spirit. The rooms (suite) was to die for -- your own spa in your room.
While recently visiting the Fairmont, I was uber-impressed with your guy Ralph Valite. He took time out to give us terrific local advice and amazing hospitality. That guy’s a real keeper!! We’ll be back for sure!!
