Fairmont Kea Lani, MauiBack to previous
Holiday in Maui
Maui, or the 'Valley Isle', has gloriously diverse and stunning scenery full of lush tropics and towering volcanoes framed by white and black sandy beaches. Molokini's underwater volcanic create allows you to glide alongside sea turtles or between December and May, spot humpback whales when they've migrated to bask in the warmer waters off the coast of Wailea.
Head to the top of Maui's highest peak in Haleakala National Park, Mount Haleakala to appreciate the 30'000 acres this park covers and the Haleakala Observatory is the ideal spot for stargazing into the clear skies at night. For early risers, a must-see is a sunrise at the mount summit before taking an adrenaline-fuelled bike ride back down to the bottom. Stopping off for a USA pancake breakfast at world-famous Kula Lodge for accompanying sweeping mountain and ocean views is essential too.Book now

Arched breezeways. lily pad-topped ponds and palm-lined thoroughfares you'll be pinching yourself that the Fairmont is real. It has its own exclusive strip of two-crescent beach so whilst feeling secluded there is independent shopping, dining, golf and tennis within a one-mile radius. Norfolk pines surround the porte-cochére leading to the patterned tile lobby and fountained pools. This perfectly manicured setting feels incredibly calming, peaceful and private with the pool staying open 24 hours.
Services and facilities are first-class and staff are knowledgeable and personal. A shuttle runs to the Wailea area and a complimentary GoPro rental allows you to capture vacation memories.
