Hyatt Hana-Maui Resort: New Hawaii Points Hotel | One Mile at a Time

Hawaii has historically been one of the most popular destinations for people looking to redeem points, and there’s a new addition to Hyatt’s portfolio there (though this will only be useful for most when Hawaii reopens to tourists[1] without a mandatory 14-day quarantine).

I first wrote about this a month ago, but Hyatt has now put out a press release[2] providing more details of what we can expect.

Hyatt’s new Hana-Maui Resort

Hyatt will be taking over the management contract of Maui’s Travaasa Hana Resort, which will be known as Hana-Maui Resort[3]. The property has been closed since late March, as is the case with so many properties in Hawaii, given the travel restrictions.

Hyatt has now officially entered into a management contract for the hotel, though it’s still not open. Operations are currently anticipated to resume as of October 1, though that remains subject to change based on travel restrictions.

Hyatt’s new Maui property
Hana-Maui Resort features 75 guest rooms, two dining options, an indoor-outdoor spa and wellness center, two pools, and a yoga pavilion.

Hana-Maui Resort looks like a solid four-star property with nice public spaces, though it doesn’t seem to have any beach (though it is on the water otherwise). The entry-level room here is a junior suite, so that’s nice.

Hyatt’s new Maui property
One thing that makes this hotel unique is that it’s on the eastern tip of Maui, in the town of Hana. Yes, that’s part of the famous “road to Hana,”[4] so it’s cool to have a hotel there since most other properties are on the opposite side of the island.

This will be a Destination Hotels property

Hana-Maui Resort is joining Hyatt’s Destination Hotels portfolio. This is a hotel group that joined Hyatt as part of the acquisition of Two Roads Hospitality[5]. For those of you not familiar with Destination Hotels, these are several dozen of them.

Many of them are more residential-style than traditional hotels, and some don’t have traditional dining outlets. This is also why not all of them offer free breakfast for Globalist members[6].
