Andaz Maui at Wailea: Review of a Room and Suite
Our recent anniversary trip to Hawaii happened to line up perfectly with the opening of the much anticipated Andaz Maui at Wailea. This hotel is a part of the Hyatt family of hotels, which means we were able to avoid the $400 – $500 per night room expense, and instead use points for our stay. It also meant that we earned valuable Hyatt points for dining and spa charges that we incurred on our trip. I am going to have numerous posts on this hotel because it is new (we were there the week it opened) and I know many people are curious about details that I would not normally include in reviews. Apologies in advance if some of the details seem a bit mundane to those who just want the “big picture”. That said, because this trip was also our anniversary trip and we were also busy having fun, I am sure there are some details that I totally missed. Here are other posts in this trip review series:

The rest of the bathroom was just as stylish as the shower. There was a soaking tub that we ended up using to lay out our wet swimsuits. The two sinks are quite shallow, so keep that in mind. They really are just designed for things like brushing teeth or washing your face. Don’t expect to wash your swimsuits or similar without making a mess, just do that in the bathtub.
There were some Andaz Suites that walk out into their own little pool area that is next to the adult pool.
If you want an even better look at the suite and the rest of the resort, then take a look at our video overview below!
To us, the biggest drawback to the suite was that some of the furniture in the living area and on the balcony really wasn’t all that comfortable. It wasn’t terrible, but I would have liked a more comfortable option to sit out on the balcony and enjoy the view. Overall, it was a very beautiful space that was quite comfortable for sleeping! We didn’t hear anything from outside the room, though the resort was certainly not fully booked while we were there. In upcoming posts on the hotel, I will cover things like on-site food options, the spa, the pools, a “secret” kid’s activity, beach activities, Diamond perks, how this stacks up to other Hyatt options on the islands, and more.
If you are already dreaming of a trip to the Andaz Maui at Wailea, then here is a post on how to rack up Hyatt points so you can be on your way without breaking the bank! I can tell you that without a doubt we hope to save up enough points to return to this hotel in the not-too-distant future.
If you’ve already been to the resort, or if you have just been anticipating it’s opening, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
