The Andaz Maui is part of the prestigious Andaz brand by Hyatt, a boutique hotel concept that attempts to reflect the environment of the destination by offering decor, a collection of works of art, a food menu and an authentic atmosphere for the traveller, without ever neglecting luxury. For having personally visited some of them, the Andaz Maui is the perfect representation. By the way, did you know that there are only 16 Andaz hotels worldwide? The Andaz Maui, which opened in 2013, set the tone for what is now a destination known for its designer boutique hotels, Wailea in Maui.

The hotel lobby is such an important place! It’s the first impression we have of a hotel and it’s where we spend most of our time when we’re not in our room, and that of the Andaz Maui makes you want to spend a lot of time there. Whether it’s the sandbox in the middle set up like a Zen garden, where the many relaxation areas with telescope and books to learn more about marine fauna (you can even admire the whales in season) the open-air lobby of the Andaz Maui is simply spectacular.

Andaz Maui rooms
Luxurious and Airy Rooms at Andaz Maui

Regardless of the room assigned to us at the Andaz Maui, we will appreciate the modern, designer, airy decor that features raw materials and leaves all the space for the view. Each room offers a balcony, a mirror shower and an overhead bathroom and we like that the minibar is free and filled daily with snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.

Of course, you want the beach when you go to Maui, but the infinity pool, which is actually four cascading pools that flow into each other in tiers, is absolutely beautiful and allows you to appreciate the ocean view and the most beautiful sunsets.

Andaz Maui restaurants
All Restaurants at Andaz Maui Are Excellent

Another important point: the food offer is excellent, the lunch buffet is one of the most impressive and complete we have ever seen, with stations: pancakes, smoothies, omelettes, fruit plates, etc. and highly personalized table service, the Mokapu Market offers: coffees, sandwiches and salads and ice cream, in short, everything you want on the go and the hotel even has a branch of the excellent Morimoto restaurant.

Finally, the Andaz Maui beach is isolated, quiet and we like to relax on a deck chair while hearing the lapping of the waves while having a breathtaking view of the mountains and the wind turbines. Oh yes, and the hotel offers several cultural and wellness activities for free every day such as: yoga, meditation, outrigger canoe, paddle board, etc.
