Maui Andaz at Wailea Resort & Spa opened today following a lengthy multi-million dollar transformation of the vacant Renaissance Wailea hotel on Maui, which had blighted Mokapu Beach.
“We are thrilled to be opening our doors today to bring the Andaz brand to a beautiful resort destination like Maui,” said Michael Stephens, general manager of Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort & Spa. “As we welcome guests from around the world, we aim to connect them to Wailea’s rich history through unique, local experiences that truly make for an unforgettable stay.”
Designed by the award-winning architecture and design firm Rockwell Group, the resort’s 297 guestrooms and suites, which include seven villas with two to four bedrooms, were designed to connect guests to Wailea’s local beaches and the ocean. The property is the 10th hotel to join the Andaz brand, which is Hyatt Corp.’s boutique hotel brand.
The 15-acre beachfront resort also features cascading outdoor infinity pools; a 14,000 square foot full-service spa with a private adults-only pool, apothecary retail and fitness facility; more than 15,000 square feet of meeting and event space and two full service restaurants, including Morimoto Maui by Chef Masaharu Morimoto.
