It won’t be long before the Andaz Wailea welcomes its first guests!  The 15 acre luxury resort, which is a joint venture between Hyatt Hotels Corp. and the property owner of Starwood Capital Group, is located on the site of the former Renaissance Wailea Beach Resort that closed in 2007.

The Andaz Wailea hotel’s website states they will be accepting reservations for August 15 and beyond.  You can reach the hotel at:   1 808 573 1234

With the opening of the Andaz Wailea, the resort will join the list of other Andaz resorts around the United States located in California, Georgia and New York:

Andaz Wailea

In keeping with the Andaz reputation, guests will feel the splendor and upscale comfort of each of the 290 well appointed guest rooms and suites, and seven luxurious 2 to 4 bedroom residential villas.  Each room is designed with opulent bathrooms that afford guests with ocean and garden view showers along with the most luxurious body products.  Each Andaz Wailea guest room is further enhanced with private lanais for guests to enjoy the magnificent sunsets over Mokapu Beach. The resort will feature two outdoor bars along with four outdoor cascading infinity pools.

The Andaz Wailea resort is located in the resort community of Wailea on the southwest coast of Maui where guests can enjoy an array of additional activities including golf courses, upscale shops and restaurants and a variety of watersports. 

As we reported in an earlier blog, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto will become the first Iron Chef to open a restaurant on Maui and where else but at Andaz Wailea!  The highly acclaimed celebrity chef, best known for Iron Chef and Iron Chef America, will be using locally sourced and season fresh ingredients from the island of Maui to create thoughtfully crafted lunch and dinner menus served in a laid-back, oceanside setting.  The restaurant consists of a 57 seat, island inspired dining room and a 79 seat outdoor terrace and bar.  Chef Morimoto has not set an exact date for the opening, but the restaurant is expected to be open in the Fall.

We’ll keep you posted on the opening of restaurant and you can be assured, Cheri and I will be one of the first ones making reservations to dine with Chef Morimoto!
