Recently named Fairmont Hotels & Resorts' "Hotel of the Year", the resort completed a $70 million renovation in 2015. This prestigious award was given to the Fairmont Kea Lani due to its exceptional performance scores in guest experiences which included launching a guest problem resolution initiative which was subsequently adopted by all Fairmont hotels as a best practice.
