I couldn’t have imagined a better place to stay for my first time in Maui. As one of the best luxury resorts on the island, the Fairmont Kea Lani gives you an experience that you definitely won’t forget. Dustin and I were invited to the resort and were lucky enough to spend our anniversary in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
The resort can be found in the heart of the beautiful Wailea coast, and happens to be one of the most luxurious properties on the island of Maui. The Fairmont Kea Lani offers you the perfect blend of luxury while staying true to the Hawaiian culture. If you’re up for some local fun, reserve yourself a seat at LUANA for Tiki Tuesday, the ultimate cocktail experience with their award winning Bartender, Aaron! Trust me, your taste buds won’t regret it.
One of the best features of the resort are the rooms. In fact, as an all-suite property, every guest has access to the perks of their own suite. This is perfect for families, or small groups of friends because each room can sleep 4 people.
Chances are if you’re heading to Maui, you’re not just looking to experience a resort. Maui is known for its stunning beauty. If you’re looking to experience some of Maui’s natural scenery, the Fairmont Kea Lani puts you within easy access of pretty much every major attraction. You can drive up the coast to watch the Sea Turtles come ashore, or take the epic road to Hana. Fair warning though, be prepared for a long drive if you plan on taking the road to Hana, and if you get motion sickness, bring along anti-nausea tablets. You will certainly need them!
If you’re interested in excursions that are more accessible, you can try snorkelling. The resort has access to tide-pools with crystal clear water and offers you complimentary snorkel gear. These are first come, first serve so make sure you reserve your gear early. We made the mistake of waiting too long and missed our opportunity to swim with the fish. It’s still something I regret to this day.
The Fairmont Kea Lani gives you access to everything you could need for the perfect vacation. They offer amazing spa treatments, have multiple pools and even a waterslide. I’m basically a child trapped in the body of an adult, and can tell you that the waterslide was pretty epic even if it caters to kids. There were definitely a few adults in line waiting for their turn.
All in all, the Fairmont Kea Lani in Maui was the perfect place for us to stay and celebrate our time with each other. There was an instant feeling of peace and relaxation that we got the minute we walked into the lobby. Like the feeling you get when you find your happy place. If you’re in need of a blissful vacation, this is your place. I know we will definitely be back.
Disclosure: A big thank you to the team at Fairmont for hosting us during our time in Maui. They truly made our Anniversary a time to remember and we couldn’t be happier to have experienced those moments with them. All opinions mentioned in this post are entirely my own.
