About Kō Restaurant:
Kō, which translates to sugarcane in Hawaiian, is inspired by the sugarcane plantation era, a time when people from around the world came to the Hawaiian Islands to work in the sugarcane fields. The plantation workers brought recipes and cooking techniques from home but utilized the ingredients available to them in the islands. This culinary evolution eventually developed into what is now considered modern Hawaiian cuisine.
In 2012, Kō’s concept was brought to life by the esteemed Chef Tylun Pang. Chef Pang passionately led and developed Kō into a cultural melting pot that best represents Hawaiian-style cuisine.
Today, Executive Chef Jonathan Pasion leads the culinary masterpiece of Kō restaurant in Wailea. The expansive menu features island family recipes that have been passed down for generations – including Hawaiian, Chinese, Filipino, Portuguese, Korean, and Japanese favorites. By utilizing the island’s fresh produce, meat and seafood, Chef Pasion gives these authentic recipes a farm-fresh, contemporary twist.
Every element of Kō’s contemporary design is reflective of the restaurant’s deep respect and connection to Maui’s sugarcane plantation era. The colors, textures, and cuisine blend seamlessly to offer a dining experience unlike any other.

Hi! I just called Ko and they said their Happy Hour is still closed due to COVID and they’re not sure when it will start up again.
Today is 4/30/2019 and we just updated the happy hour info at Ko! Mahalo to Trudy for sending it over. Ko is fabulous and Fairmont Kea Lani is a stunning property. Hope you enjoy!
