Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort
“My wife and I wanted to celebrate our 20th anniversary in our favorite place, Maui. We did just that at Andaz Maui and Wailea and couldn’t have been more pleased. A resort in paradise catering to total rest and relaxation. It only took us about a day until we became completely comatose, and could barely be bothered to leave one of the multiple infinity pools. The pool side food made it that much worse (better!), and was comparable to some of the best restaurants on the whole island.
We stayed in the adult’s only pool area which was strictly enforced, and it was so peaceful. Perfect to relax and enjoy some cocktails. The service was so impressive, provided by a young and eager staff that have clearly been expertly trained. We had no complaints in that area. The rooms had all the comforts of home and more, with amazing views to watch the unbeatable Maui sunsets. Very “zen” and new décor throughout.”

All the comforts and luxuries of a resort, but in a place that almost feels as if it’s a boutique hotel. It’s intimate and not crowded with children or huge families.
Your partner. There were children around but not many, and to us it seemed a place where you would want adults only time.
One morning we snorkeled right off the beach. It was fantastic! We saw tons of local fish with frequent sighting of sea turtles. Undoubtedly the best part of the resort AND Maui!
Best time to go
We went in September and it was not too crowded at all.
Like most Hawaiian resorts, the ocean is visible but the beach is fairly underexposed. The small beach is lovely but feels a little hidden away. Unfortunately, this is the difference between going to Hawaii versus somewhere like Mexico, but we didn’t feel that it was a deal breaker for us.
Rooms start at $400 per night, based on time of year.
