Ten years ago, my husband and I stumbled onto the grounds of the Fairmont Kea Lani. We were vacationing with our daughter, then 7 months old, and were checking out Polo Beach.
I was in awe when I saw a gorgeous white hotel with cascading flowers on oceanfront balconies. I was also swooning over the beautiful villas spread out in front of the ocean with their private plunge pools.
I made it a goal right there and then that I would one day stay at the Fairmont Kea Lani.
That dream finally came true during our last holiday on Maui in April. My family of four had the opportunity to enjoy staying in a villa at the Fairmont Kea Lani on Easter weekend and it was more than I ever imagined.
The Fairmont Kea Lani is an all-suite and villa hotel located on beautiful Polo Beach in Wailea. There are 37 two and three-bedroom luxury villas at the resort.
We had the pleasure of staying in a three-bedroom villa.
Our villa had two full-size master bedrooms, one bedroom with two full beds, two oversized marble bathrooms, a fully stocked gourmet kitchen, dining area, living room, a washer and dryer and a private courtyard with a plunge pool, outdoor seating and eating areas and a BBQ.
I was immediately impressed with the attention to detail in our villa. It had so many extras including robes for us to use while on the property, lovely toiletries, basic items in the refrigerator (including milk, water bottles, and juices), fruits on the dining table and snacks to enjoy.
The villa has two secure entry points, the front door, and the back patio door. I really liked this because it made it easy to lock up and run off to the beach.
The layout of the villa worked so well for my family. My children loved having their own room and my husband and I liked being able to relax in the living room once the kids were in bed upstairs.
Valet parking and daily buffet breakfast are included in your villa experience.
The furnished courtyard and plunge pool were our absolute favourite part of the villa. We spent most of our time in the courtyard, jumping in the plunge pool every chance we had.
The Property and Amenities
The grounds of the Fairmont Kea Lani are very well maintained. Lush greenery and flowers are everywhere you turn.
The resort has three outdoor swimming pools including one adult-only pool. There are plenty of cushioned loungers and umbrellas at all pools. Cabanas are also available to rent.
Each time we arrived at the pool, a pool assistant would help us locate chairs. This was an extremely nice service that impressed me greatly. This is not a service that is offered at many hotels.
Clean and dry towels are readily available by the pool and SPF 50 lotion and Aloe Vera is complimentary.
The main pool has the best hotel water-slide I have ever experienced. The 140-foot slide starts at the upper pool and shoots you out and the lower pool. It has fun water features and tropical plants surrounding it. The kids and I rode the water slide a dozen times per day.
The resort has a 24-hour fitness center and Inspire Your Energy fitness and wellness classes. All classes are included in your stay.
There is a Kids Club, and snorkel equipment rentals and boogies boards are complimentary.
The resort offers many cultural activities including Lei Making and Tahitian Dancing. We had the opportunity to participate in the Crab Hunting on Sunday evening. Our entire family had so much fun chasing ghost crabs on the beach and collecting them in the buckets provided before releasing them into the ocean.
I can honestly say that our two days at the Fairmont Kea Lani were extremely special. We loved the property, amenities and our beautiful villa.
Everything was perfect.
This resort has left a big impression on us and we are planning to return every time we visit Maui.
