Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort

3550 Wailea Alanui Dr., Wailea, Hawaii, 96753, USA

Sophisticated travelers and romance-seeking couples will swoon at the sleek luxury of this eco-friendly, beachfront resort. The amenities include four cascading infinity pools, and hyper-local approach to everything, from its cocktail program to the designer clothes worn by iPad-toting staff. Walk down the water-lined entry hall, with the ocean framed in the distance, into a universe where everything seems set up to accommodate you. Despite the refined setting, the sandbox in the lobby is one indication this place has sense of whimsy about itself. Whitewashed rooms are on the small side, but just about every plantation-shuttered wall leads to some treat—a deep soaking tub, a rain shower, a refrigerator stocked with complimentary goodies. Expect all the most high-tech amenities, including LEED Silver certification for energy conservation and complimentary use of GoPro cameras. Four eating establishments include an outpost of the Morimoto empire, the rave-winning Ka'ana Kitchen and a 24-hour market with grab-and-go options, bars with live music nightly, a kids' club and lagoon pool, beach concierge, an apothecary spa, and complimentary cultural activities.
