Fairmont Kea Lani completes makeover

On the island of Maui, Hawaii, the Fairmont Kea Lani has completed the makeover of its breakfast restaurant, fitness center, ballroom and foyer.

The reimagined Kea Lani Restaurant has a contemporary design and open layout that highlights the surroundings of Wailea, Maui and tropical landscaping.  The newly-designed restaurant has an interactive omelet station, breakfast buffet room and alfresco dining room. 

The new fitness center has an expansive workout space with floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views extending from the iconic architecture to the Pacific Ocean. The center includes Technogym’s smart connected equipment, including the SkillMill, which the company calls the most advanced non-motorized treadmill to deliver high intensity workouts, and the SkillRow, the first indoor rower. The center also has Peloton bikes, plyometric boxes, strength equipment, along with training areas and flexibility zones highlighting GYM RAX systems and Aktiv Virtual Training Station.

For the new look of the 8,400-square-foot Kea Lani Ballroom and 4,000-square-foot open-air pre-function foyer, tropical tones were used, inspired by the blues of the Pacific combined with Fairmont Kea Lani’s signature white. 

In addition to the new restaurant, fitness center and meeting facilities, Fairmont Kea Lani made improvements to the resort’s public areas, pool and lounge furniture, restaurants, bars, kitchens and guest amenities including bikes and spa equipment for a total reinvestment of nearly $7 million.
