Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort & Spa hotel - Maui, USA
Perched on serene Mokapu Beach, the Andaz Maui at Wailea is the first resort from Hyatt’s boutique brand. Designed by Shawn Sullivan of the Rockwell Group, the property opens with a dazzling entry bridge of African mahogany and Italian Ambrato marble over an infinity-edge pool, leading into a reception area with alluring Pacific views. The 297 rooms and suites are decorated in a palette of pale neutrals, while seven multi-bedroom villas feature furniture by Italian label Gervasoni and London-based Ochre and Domus Design Collection. The Morimoto Maui restaurant, run by chef Masaharu Morimoto, has a Japanese menu infusing local ingredients. A more casual café, Ka’ana Kitchen, serves up local island fare. Two poolside lounges offer hand-crafted cocktails by New York mixologist Julie Reiner, along with smaller bites.
