Maui is a paradise island known for its glorious beaches and stunning sunsets and sunrises, which paint the sky with alluring shades of burnt orange, blush pink and subtle violet.
The island, which welcomes enchanting humpback whales seeking warming waters in the winter months, is also renowned for its farm-to-table cuisine, sacred Iao Valley and deep-rooted connection to the spirit of Aloha, meaning love, affection, peace, compassion and mercy: simply focusing on the well-being of yourself and others around you.
The focus on well-being is extended across the great swathes of emerald forest, to the golden shores, up the Haleakalā volcanic crater and especially at the welcoming oceanfront resort of Fairmont Kea Lani.
The all-suite and villa resort is redefining luxury in Hawaii by focusing on the happiness and well-being of its guests. Through its Inspire Your Energy Wellness package, the resort puts emphasis on improving guests’ happiness, mindset and body, so when their stay is over, they are ready to tackle the world with a renewed sense of well-being and kaulike – internal balance.
Wellness has long been at the core of life in the archipelagos of Hawaii; in ancient times balance was found by honoring na akua (the spirit), nā kanaka maoli (people) and ka ’āina (land). These traditions have been carefully woven into the Inspire Your Energy Wellness package.
“The Inspire Your Energy package is designed for guests interested in living a healthy, uplifted and energized life,” explains Shannah Milstead, director of sales and marketing of the resort.
Included in the Inspire Your Energy Wellness package, is a daily breakfast buffet at the Kea Lani Restaurant to get you vitalized for the day. Scrumptious dishes can be made suitable for gluten-free and vegan diets, with a focus on being kind to your heart.
After a delicious start to the day, guests can enjoy fitness classes, including barre, meditation, pilates, yoga and meditation, to exercise the mind as well as the body. Energy Ambassadors are also on hand to inspire your personal journey of wellness.
After working up a little sweat, travelers can enjoy two 60-minute body treatments at the award-winning Willow Stream Spa. Recognized as Hawaii’s top hotel spa, the locally-inspired treatments are combined with the newest innovations in spa technology, sure to leave your soul, body and mind enchanted in a state of total wellness.
“We’ve combined restorative treatments and mindfulness with an opportunity for guests to recharge and transform into a better version of themselves,” explains Milstead.
The package offers travelers a personalized Maui retreat with a stay in either the luxury suites or villas. Each one-bedroom suite can comfortably accommodate a couple on a romantic getaway or a family of four looking to escape the mundane and head into the exotic tropics.
The luxury beach villas are perfect for bigger families or multi-couples wanting a private piece of paradise with their very own plunge pool, private courtyard, chaise lounges, grill and dining table.
The resort also has three 24-hour pools, one which is for adults only, while another has a 140-foot waterslide for kids of all ages. Scuba diving gear is ready to rent at the resort, too, as well as surfboards, paddle boards and kayaks.
If you fancy exploring the island’s offerings, head out on a culinary tour of Maui and discover local wines, goat’s cheese, craft beers and even locally-distilled vodka. On arrival back at the resort, head over to Nick’s Fishmarket restaurant or to Kō, an award-winning, plantation-inspired restaurant with cuisines that combine flavors from Hawaii, China, the Philippines, Portugal, Korea and Japan to curate a perfectly sumptuous menu.
The Inspire Your Energy package, combined with magnificent gastronomy, stunning accommodation and the island’s natural mana (healing energy), will allow you to be the best version of yourself, with the bonus of leaving any pre-vacation stress on the island after you leave.
Let the sound of the Pacific waves crashing against the shore be the soundtrack to your unforgettable stay on Maui. The resort offers the perfect opportunity to take the time to contemplate your well-being and improve your overall wellness. Where better to do that than at Fairmont Kea Lani, a contemporary setting steeped in timeless beauty.
