Ever wanted to visit Hawaii? If you’re a Hyatt loyalist, you’ve probably heard a rumble (or 2) about the Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort. Notoriously difficult to score when redeeming your points, we’ve just found plenty of award space.

Let’s take a look.

Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort

The Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort is a Category 8 property, which means it’ll charge you 35,000, 40,000, or 45,000 World of Hyatt points per night to stay at this hotel. Although expensive, it can definitely be more than worth it.

If you’re looking to book, the months of April, June, July, August, October, and November in 2023 are all showing large swathes of rooms available.

This is true even in long chunks. We were easily able to find weeklong stays, which would be perfect for those with suite upgrade awards.

Nightly rates for the Andaz Maui hover a little over $1,000 per night, which means that at 40,000 points per night, you’ll be redeeming your Hyatt points for well above 2.5 cents each. This is much greater than our own valuation of 1.5 cents per point.

How To Find Award Availability

It’s usually almost impossible to find award availability at this property, but thanks to Max My Point’s handy calendar function, we were easily able to find tons of space throughout 2023.

This free website allows you to search a year’s worth of availability all in one shot. Be aware, however, that there is a cap on the number of free searches you can complete per day.

This is our go-to site for finding space with Hyatt, Hilton, and Marriott, but note that it can struggle when hotels have implemented minimum stay requirements as it doesn’t search for those.

40,000 points per night can be a lot for some people to swallow, especially since Hyatt points aren’t that easy to earn. However, if you have Globalist elite status with Hyatt, it’s possible to make yourself a points advance reservation. This will allow you to secure the booking while giving yourself time to earn the points required.

The Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort is a highly sought after property and it’s usually nearly impossible to find award space. However, we’ve just found tons of rooms available during much of 2023, so if you’ve been looking for a Hawaiian vacation — now’s the time to book!
