My wife and I were fortunate enough to arrive at the Andaz on their opening day and enjoy an incredible week at this outstanding hotel! The location, staff, food and facilities are amazing. While they were still working on a few final adjustments, you barely noticed as everyone was so friendly and helpful.
The Andaz offers a great check-in process and each of the staff is ready and willing to ensure that your experience is enjoyable. Sara checked us in and was gracious enough to keep an eye on us during our stay, ensuring that we were enjoying ourselves.
This was the first time that we visited Maui without renting a car. To be honest, I doubt we will ever rent one in the future. The Andaz has pretty much everything you need. This will be even more true once Morimoto Maui restaurant opens. There are also several other great restaurants that are within walking distance (or a short cab ride).
The beach in front of the hotel is amazing! The beach activity center has a great package that allows you to utilize all of their various equipment for 5 days for one flat price. We snorkeled, stand-up paddle boarded and kayaked. It was a great way to try out different items and not worry about trying to have items back by a certain time. They also offer a complimentary trip in one of their outrigger canoes each morning. If you have never had the opportunity to paddle in an outrigger I would highly recommend this experience! It was a great way to learn more about the ocean all while taking in a great view of the coastline from the water. Once back on shore, the staff was always willing to set-up an umbrella, chairs and fresh towels whenever you were in the mood to spend some time on the beach.
If the wind happens to pick-up, there are several great pools alongside the hotel. Again, the staff was always ready and willing to help find the perfect spot. There was always someone available to deliver a drink or something to eat. Speaking of food, our dinner at Ka'ana Kitchen was outstanding!
I would also highly recommend a session with Pacific Dream Photography. This was a great way to wrap-up our trip and the images were truly outstanding! Just ask one of the staff in the front lobby and they can arrange a time for your session. You might want to consider not waiting until the last evening before you leave. Depending on your flight time, this will allow a little more time to view your photographs. We loved the photographs and had a hard time narrowing it down to a reasonable number!
We are already looking forward to our return to the Andaz!!!
