U.S. News Review

Gorgeous grounds, attentive service and a new Iron Chef-helmed restaurant are just a few of the reasons guests are gushing about Andaz Maui at Wailea. Stretching across 15 acres, the hotel offers visitors prime access to Mokapu Beach and lots to do: You can rent paddleboards, kayaks and snorkel gear, or head out on an island excursion. If your muscles are sore after a day in the water, you can rejuvenate at the Awili Spa or retreat to your spacious accommodations. Each of the Andaz Maui's guest rooms and suites is outfitted in white linens, wood furnishings and private verandas and recent visitors praise the design of the rooms, especially the subtle island theme. When lodgers aren't gushing about their digs, they heap acclaim on the on-site restaurants, particularly the Morimoto Maui. But if Japanese fare doesn't tempt your palate, the Ka'ana Kitchen also wins over diners with its locally sourced menu. Although guests were overwhelmingly positive about the on-site restaurants and staff, some guests did cite glitches in the poolside service as negative aspects of their stays. Still, thanks to the hotel's Hyatt ties, Gold Passport members can cash in points here for complimentary nights, or earn points for future stays.
