We stay here every eight months. Sometimes shorter. From east coast. Our favorite place ever. No reason to try anywhere else. This is heaven. There is no better place to vacation than Andaz Maui.
Best place to sleep EVER.
Checkin was a breeze and included welcome refreshments and a fabulous view of a calm ocean. The staff here are professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and seem very happy in their work. If you enjoy watching sunsets over the ocean, kayaking, and snorkeling, you'll enjoy your stay at Andaz Maui. Wailea Bay is a short walk from the four terraced infinity pools, and we were fortunate to have three days in a row of calm waters so clear that the early-morning sun streamed through the surface of the water, highlighting brightly colored tropical fish, sea stars and several honu. Our stay at Andaz Maui was relaxing and rejuvenating; we plan on returning soon.
