Andaz Maui at Wailea opens this summer as the first LEED certified resort in Hawaii
Hyatt Hotels and Resorts’ Andaz Hotels brand will open Andaz Maui at Wailea—Hawaii’s first LEED Hotel—on Maui this summer. Designed by New York-based Rockwell Group, the 15-acre oceanfront resort’s sustainable design will boast reduced energy and water consumption and minimal waste emissions.
Andaz Maui at Wailea will feature 290 guestrooms and suites, as well as seven residential villas. Private lanais in each room offer views of Mokapu Beach, and bathrooms flaunt both ocean- and garden-view showers.
With over 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, Andaz Maui at Wailea will also include studio-style meeting rooms and event facilities. The 4,560 square feet of studio-style rooms have a beachfront style and are equipped with LEED-certified functionality. Additionally, open kitchens and breakout rooms will allow for chef engagement at breaks and dinner meetings.
Retaining locally sourced, eco-friendly practices, all the dining options will feature organic and fresh produce as much as possible. Morimoto Maui, helmed by chef Masaharu Morimoto, will blend Hawaiian, Japanese, and Western cuisines. The property will also include a poolside cocktail lounge and fully-stocked 24-hour market serving local snacks and beverages.
