Despite an extensive remodel scheduled to begin August 2011, operations at The Fairmont Kea Lani will continue as normal, except for the closure of its signature restaurant, Kō.

An extensive remodel to the signature restaurant, Kō, is scheduled from August 15 – December 16, 2011. According to a written statement from the resort, many changes will come to the Kō restaurant, including sweeping curved walls, a floating shaded roof, a new bar, built in seating banquettes, and porcelain tile flooring.

Also, during this time, the entire façade of the resort will receive a fresh coat of paint.

All remodeling will cease during the holidays between December 17, 2011 and January 2, 2012, although the Kō will still be closed, The Fairmont Kea Lani’s traditional Christmas buffet and New Year’s events will continue.


Despite the renovations, guests can expect at least one restaurant open for breakfast and lunch, and two restaurants open for dinner, including the Caffe Ciao Bakery & Deli and Luana Lounge.


Visitors and residents alike can also take advantage of discounted rates up to 50% off by asking for the “Renovation with Aloha Promotion” or “Renovation with Aloha Breakfast Package”.
