Hyatt Regency Maui

Voted one of the Top 10 Most Popular Honeymoon Resort in Hawaii by Conde Nast Traveler, the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa is a great choice for travellers who enjoy good food, luxurious interior and a paradise style beach.

Hyatt Regency Maui

Though the Hyatt Maui offers 800 beautiful rooms that are spread over eight floors and three buildings, it never felt crowded when I was there. That’s due to the variety of different facilities in the hotel. These include, for instance, a half-acre pool with waterfalls, 10 onsite restaurants and lounges, an area with exotic wildlife including penguins, and a lots of of cultural activities. The hotel is also known for one of Maui’s best rated lu’au, Drums of the Pacific. Depending which room you have in the hotel you might even be able to see the show from the balcony.

Haven for Foodies

The Hyatt Regency Maui is home to amazing restaurants and cocktail bars: The Japengo restaurant offers Pacific Rim cuisine and sushi and was rated Best Asian and Pacific Rim Cuisine. The Ūmalu Restaurant & Bar serves modern Hawaiian cuisine and Son’z Steakhouse yummy seafood and steaks. There are also lovely and peaceful places for breakfast and coffee. Of course you will also find plenty of pool bars :)

Beautiful Oceanfront Location

Location-wise the Hyatt Regency in Maui ticked three of my four paradise boxes: 1) beautiful beach, 2) waves for surfing, and 3) coral reefs for scuba diving. For 4) mountains and nature, just rent a car and head up to Maui’s breathtaking volcano or drive along the Road to Hana – both are incredibly beautiful and fun day tours.

Private Picture Perfect Beach

The Hyatt Regency Maui is located on Ka’anapali Beach, the signature beach of West Maui. The beach is 3 miles long, has white sand and crystal clear water. And the best thing: the beach is literally just a few seconds walk from the hotel’s impressive pool area. Either just hop into the ocean and then walk back to your lounger on the pool or choose one of the hotel’s comfy loungers on Ka’anapali beach directly. I chose the latter option most of the days. I just loved relaxing on these huge sunbeds with a Bellini in my hand while having the most breathtaking view of the ocean. PARADISE.

Sunrise surfing..

If you are up for some surfing, just walk around 200 metres further down the promenade and you will arrive at a surf rental place. I usually went there for 8 am, surfed for an hour and then walked back to our hotel in time for breakfast. The waves are not huge in this part of Maui but are perfect for long boards and a chilled out morning work out.

Say hi to Reef sharks

Maui has some gorgeous scuba diving spots and a couple of them are located in short distance from the Hyatt Maui Hotel. To book a scuba diving trip, just head over to the hotel’s instructors a bit further up on the hotel’s beach. Alternatively, pay a visit to the concierge who is happy to book any trip for you. There are also trial sessions offered in the hotel’s pool.

We even saw three reef sharks during our scuba trip which was super amazing. We also saw giant turtles and so so so many colourful fishies. The marine life is seriously impressive and a must-see for scuba divers.

Swimming in the moon shine

The Hyatt Regency Maui has an incredibly beautiful pool and you can swim in the pool after dinner! I’m not sure whether that’s a normal thing to do in Hawaii. For most of the hotels that I have been to though, the pool closes around 8 pm. The water temperate is surprisingly perfect at night which is either due to the strong and lasting heat of the Hawaiian sun. Well, or due to a little help from the hotel. The pool is not even crowded at night. I guess most of the hotel guests don’t feel like hopping back into their bathing suits after having dressed up for the evening. So, take your sweetheart and go for a little swim at night!

Picture this: You are floating in a beautiful pool in the moon shine. Looking at the stars. And your hear nothing except the waves and the pool’s waterfall :)

Last but not least: the most helpful concierge service

This usually doesn’t make the separate category criteria but the Hyatt Regency concierge personnel was nothing short of amazing. They pretty much planned the whole Road to Hana tour for us. On top of this they gave us plenty of great suggestions for restaurants and coffee places and wouldn’t stop naming little road trips to Maui’s picture perfect nature spots. One time I made the last minute decision that I’d like to get a mani and pedi in the afternoon (as in ‘I’d like get it booked for in the next two hours, pretty please’). The concierge lady immediately  called five salons until she was finally able to get me booked in. Little note here: If you’d like to have a treatment in the Hyatt Regency SPA, book a couple of days or so in advance :)

    Oh how I dream of going to Hawaii someday. I have relatives who have migrated to Hawaii decades ago. But right now I’m limited to travel to countries where visa is not required because I hate the hassle of applying for visa in my country.

  • Looks like an amazing place to stay and visit, I’m not surprised it is so popular with honeymooners
