The Fairmont Kea Lani Resort, Wailea has wonderful areas to create photographs and a very friendly staff. I believe they limit their weddings to two per day, which gives the coordinators time to give brides the personal attention that they should expect from a high end resort. The most popular site is the oceanfront terrace which sports amazing views and will comfortably seat 30 guests. The beach is wonderful for photographs and not nearly as crowded as that of the Grand or Four Seasons. They are very pet friendly as you can see. We stayed there for about two weeks, awaiting the closing of our home in Kihei. I've photographed over one hundred weddings there and really enjoy the property. What a treat it was to be a guest. All the rooms are suites and everyone treated our spoiled dog Anna like a celebrity. We thought about renaming her Princess Kea Lani, which means heavenly white in Hawaiian; very apropos. Their new restaurant, Ko has gotten rave reviews and Nick's Fish Market is great as well.

Princess Stays at the Fairmont Kea Lani in Wailea, Maui, Hawaii !

Stockwells return to Maui, never to leave again.  One year of Northern 
California weather was enough.  37 degrees and rain on Christmas, receiving 
heavy socks and sweat shirts as gifts, convinced me that we'd left heaven and 
ended up in the bad place.  Waiting for our new digs to close, we spent 10 days 
at the Fairmont Kea Lani.  If you are not aware of it, the Kea Lani is a PET 
FRIENDLY resort and the staff was extremely friendly to our Maltese Anna, the 
second light of our lives.  Markus, our grandson being number one.  Our smiling 
frisky companion couldn't scamper 20 feet without someone wanting to take her 
picture.  This really added to the fun of staying there.  We could have rented 
her out to guests missing their doggies.  As we sauntered through the lobby, 
leash in hand, the staff would say "hi Anna". I really wanted to rename her 
'Princess Kea Lani', which means 'heavenly white' in Hawaiian.  I've 
photographed numerous weddings at the Kea Lani, and it was pure luxury to be 
there as a guest.

Jamie, Kevin and the two boys became a family at the luxurious Fairmont Kea 
Lani.  The two boys were extremely polite and well behaved. I commented, "Wow, 
the beatings must have paid off."  Kea Lani means 'heavenly white' in Hawaiian 
and Jamie certainly looked heavenly in her white gown.  The following day we met 
at Ulua beach and enjoyed the Maui's vast treasure trove of white sands and awe 
inducing sunsets. It doesn't get much better than this.
