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.

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


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.

Michael Pye is the GM of Fairmont Kea Lani.
