I’ve been excited about the Andaz Maui since I took a hard-hat tour of the property while it was under construction about a year ago. The hotel, Maui’s first LEED-certified luxury property, was originally supposed to open sometime this past spring, but the opening date kept getting pushed back to earlier this month, but still didn’t come under that deadline, but I’ve received official word from the hotel’s PR firm that the hotel will be open as of this Sunday, September 1.

The resort is on a prime 15-acre spot of Wailea on Mokapu Beach, and has 297 rooms and suites, including two- and four-bedroom villas, and an adults-only wing.

There are also two poolside cocktail lounges, Bumbye Bar and Lehua Lounge, both of which will offer hand-crafted cocktails created by New York mixologist Julie Reiner (who originally hails from Hawaii), as well as a 24-hour market stocked with snacks and drinks from Hawaii.

The hotel’s Awili Spa and Salon will have an apothecary blending bar where guests can choose their own spa prodcuts based on foraged indigenous herbs and plants, and 10 rooms where the “omakase” or “trust” services are tailored to each guest and are and based on traditional Japanese treatments.

Guests will also have access to the hotel’s 24-hour fitness center and Wailea’s tennis courts and golf courses. The other signature Andaz touches include free WiFi and minibar (excluding alcohol).

How To Get 2 Free Nights

Opening rates are around $409, so you might want to wait a little while to see if they come down a bit. Also remember that the resort is offering guests a special discount where you stay for 4 nights and get 2 free nights (6 total) plus a $75 resort credit or stay 5 nights and get 2 free nights (7 total) plus a $150 resort credit from opening through December 20, 2013 when they book using the promo code WAILEA in the “Offers and Gift Certificates.”

Opening rates are starting at about $409.

Choose the Hyatt Daily Rate and you should see the rate rules describing the discount and the savings. However, when you go to book the room for all 6-7 nights it still prices out at the full price, so to be sure you get the discount, you might want to call into Hyatt and make your reservation through an agent.

The rate rules appear, but the discount isn't applied online.

The current sign-up bonus for the Hyatt Visa is two free nights at any Hyatt in the world including at the Andaz Maui, after spending $1,000 in the first three months. There are no foreign transaction fees with this card, and there is a $75 annual fee.

Hyatt is also a 1:1 transfer partner with Chase Ultimate Rewards, so consider getting the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card, which is offering 40,000 points with $3,000 spend in the first 3 months, or the Ink Bold Business Card and Ink Plus Business Card, which are offering currently offering 50,000 points with $5,000 spend in the first 3 months, since those points would be able to transfer to Hyatt.

I don’t have Hawaii plans at the moment, but this opening might just be reason enough to hop on a plane and visit Maui again since I’ve been waiting to see this hotel for a while. Anyone have plans to go there soon? If so, report back on your experience!

  • Haha

    Another shameless plug to pimp not only the Chase Hyatt card but ALL the other Chase cards. Well done sir.

  • Silver Springer

    I also thought there would be a contest giveaway not a credit card ad.

  • thepointsguy

    The chase card isn’t even my affiliate link.. As for the others- they are the best deals on the market and they are easy ways people can stay at expensive Hyatts cheaply

  • Mark

    My understanding is you book 5 nights using that rate code, and two of them are free. They will appear at first as five nights at that full rate, later they will either adjust the rate to show two free nights or do it at the hotel. But that isn’t a 7 night stay, it is a 5 night stay to get the two free nights and $150 credit.

  • jmonies

    Always appreciate TPG’s kind responses to the many naysayers out there…

  • Kasia Wilson

    So can you use points for 2 of the four nights required to get the two free nights, or do you have to pay for the four nights? We currently have a trip to Maui booked for this time period using points at the Marriott Wailea, but this could be an attractive alternative for us.

  • Enough Already

    Why do you read this site if every article leads to this troll of a post? Step away from the keyboard and walk up the basement stairs, your mom is wondering why you have not done your chores yet.

  • cowbuoy

    Touche’ & I agree !

  • Andrew

    Why do u visit the site?

  • Dan

    Do you readers know that you make $300 per approved application on those Chase cards and that is the only reason of this post’s existence?

  • Dan

    And just because these are the best deals on the market does not mean that you do not have a HUGE conflict of interest selling those credit cards and meeting your monthly quota imposed by Chase affiliates.

  • thepointsguy

    You need to pay, unfortunately

  • thepointsguy

    The title of the post is “how to” so I’m sorry you were misled to believe it was a contest or giveaway.

  • thepointsguy

    I’ve never had a monthly quota and I only use credit card links when they are the best deal for my readers- whether it’s my link or a direct link. If you feel like there’s a better deal available ill change my link if its a legitimate public offer.

  • Fv Ille


    I’m not even sure why you bother responding anymore. It seems like the same schpeel from the “you’ve plugged a CCard police” over and over. A lot of us are no longer new to the game so we don’t need the info but for those that are it is a definite help. Keep up the good work :)

  • Jeff F.

    I am going exclusively b/c of the two free nights! And I booked it far enough into the 4th quarter not to worry about official open times (and I’ll presume Morimoto is up and running by then).

  • jeff4444jojo

    I just hate to read some of the awful comments posted by people and directed at Brian. Some of the comments are downright cruel. The guy needs to make a living but he passes on good information which I use as I see fit. I subscribe to a number of blogs and read many others and consider myself somewhat of an expert. Give Brian and the others a break and use what you want and disregard the rest…..just don’t be negative.

  • Swangirl

    So excited to stay there next April for free with my Hyatt credit card and Chase UR points for my wedding!

  • Slee

    Put on your big boy pants and keep your fingers from clicking on a referral link. No one is pointing a loaded weapon at your head demanding you do so. Or maybe they are. In which case, for your own sake, they might do you and all of us a favor by pulling the trigger.

    Use your brain, lose the jealousy, and make a contribution to the world. Although I’m sure you do all charity work and never accept a dime from anybody for your time.

  • Slee

    The blather is mere jealousy. Why contribute when its so much easier to teardown others’ work instead? Losers the lot…

  • Efdallas

    We are going for 9 nights over Christmas but will just miss this offer. Thanks for the info.

  • PV

    Did not know that it was that much, that’s awesome! I admit I have not always clicked through the TPG link to get credit cards, but I will diligently do so from now on knowing the value.

  • thepointsguy

    I wish it was that much!

  • Djene

    You just have to be aware that this is first and foremost a credit card advertising site, and not a travel blog. There is very little actual information being passed on.

  • HFBra

    So don’t read the blog and go away! Leave the guy alone!

  • Chris

    Not sure why people are mad he attaches links for cards that will help you earn a freer trip to the resort or think you would win two nights. I appreciate the info, just rebooked my stay in Maui later this month and saved close to $1000 because of the tip. If you don’t think you’re getting value out of the two minutes it takes you to read the free information, stop reading. Thanks TPG for the info, looking forward to my stay!

  • Djene

    Well, readers are being misled here. This site is about advertising credit cards. The ones that are being recommended are those that pay the highest commission, not the ones that are best for consumers. See for example how aggressively business credit cards are recommended here to regular consumers.

  • Toon seng

    Hi the porn guy. My boyfriend and I want to go to African safari toor. Is it possibly using this card for free?

    If you end up going to the Andaz, or the general Wailea area for that matter, in September, there’s special promotion at Spa Grande at Grand Wailea (Waldorf Astoria). The place is AMAZING, especially the salt baths that they offer during the hydrotherapy circuit before and after your treatment. You have to be a FB fan of “Spa Grande at Grand Wailea Resort”.
