U.S. News Review

The Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui is a laid-back suite- and villa-filled resort of which island visitors can't seem to get enough. Travelers use words like "gorgeous" and "paradise" to describe the resort's grounds, while the accommodations here earn high praise for their laundry list of amenities. Each suite comes with separate living and sleeping space, pillow-top beds, kitchenette, marble bathroom and a private balcony that offers excellent views of Maui's coast. Although you may be tempted to hole up in your room, previous guests highly recommend taking advantage of all this Fairmont property has to offer. The resort rubs elbows with the scenic Wailea Golf Club (making it a popular choice for putters) and boasts its own Willow Stream Spa. Guests also have access to three swimming pools; parents can lounge by the adults-only pool while children make new friends at the kids club. And everyone can regroup for dinner at one of several in-house restaurants. Meanwhile, members of the Fairmont President's Club rewards program will receive extra special treatment in the form of perks like spa discounts.
