Located in Maui’s premier southwestern coastline along Mokapu Beach, the 15-acre beachfront Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort and Spa is the 10th hotel for the brand.

The Rockwell Group designed the resort to reflect the local culture with an entry bridge featuring Ambrato stones, mahogany wood, fish ponds, and a lobby sandpit overlooking multiple infinity pools above pristine beaches. Andaz hosts check guests in via tablet and provide an extensive overview and tour of the property.

The 297 guestrooms, suites and villas house platform beds, walnut and teak furnishings, free snacks, a coffeemaker, fridge, and a huge balcony overlooking the four infiniti pools and ocean. The gallery-designed bathrooms feature very large rainfall showers with white oak shutters opening to the bedroom.

Food at the Andaz is focused on dishes utilizing farm fresh sustainable locally sourced ingredients. The Ka’ana Kitchen offers an outstanding daily brunch featuring a wide variety of fresh squeezed juices as well as lunch and dinner overlooking the pools, lagoon, and ocean. Morimoto Maui offers closer beach views and upscale Japanese cuisine by masterchef Masaharu Morimoto.
