I’ve been checking the website for the new Andaz Maui every few days to see when they finally start taking reservations so I can be among the first to see it. The hotel previously had a notice saying it would open in mid-summer, and I know many people with plans to visit Maui around then have been asking about a specific date.
We still don’t know when the hotel will open for sure. My contact at Hyatt has told me only that the reservation window will open in stages. Access to opening night won’t be until much closer to arrival. However, the first bookable nights just became available.
If you are planning to visit Maui on or after September 15, the start of Maui’s low season, you can now make a reservation. To get a sense of what rates will be, I did a test search for seven nights, from September 15-22.
The cheapest standard rate for an Andaz Garden King Bed is $509. Or you can get a Partial Ocean King for $584. There is only one suite variety listed, the Andaz Suite, for $1,159, so this is a good indication of what you will get if you redeem a Diamond suite upgrade or 6,000 Gold Passport points. Remember that you must book at least a partial ocean view in order to upgrade at resort properties. These upgrade charges are for up to four nights if you use points or up to seven nights if you use a Diamond suite upgrade.
I consider this a pretty good value, though it is more expensive than the older Hyatt Regency Maui on the other side of the island. You can do better if you have a AAA membership. Discounted rates are $458.10 for the Garden King, $533.30 for the Partial Ocean King, and $1,108.10 for the Andaz Suite. I did not see any other discounts or packages, including Costco rates, nor did the AAA rate come with breakfast as it often does at the Hyatt Regency.
I’ll let you know when I learn more about earlier dates opening up! The Points Guy got a tour of the Andaz Maui during an earlier stage of construction if you’d like to check it out.
