Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort is giving guests and members greater control of their hotel journey and focusing on a more holistic sense of well-being from pre-arrival to checkout and beyond. The hotel is “reimagining” places and spaces to make social distancing not feel that way. Here’s a sampling:
Wellbeing Where You Are: Through a new, exclusive collaboration with Headspace, guests, members and colleagues may access mindfulness exercises, guided meditations and sleep content via the World of Hyatt app either on in-room TVs or on the road. Guests can also enjoy enhanced fitness and wellbeing amenities in-room at some hotels, such as Exhale on Demand TV content, fitness equipment delivered to the guestroom (bikes, treadmills, weights), or spa kits and treatments available for delivery. In some cases, hotels have created outdoor workout spaces.
Less Contact, More Care: Hyatt hotels are working to roll out enhanced digital amenities through the World of Hyatt app that will give guests more control over how they connect with Hyatt. The new features, available in select markets and rolling out on an ongoing basis, will allow guests to manage preferences like scheduling housekeeping, choosing between pick-up or knock-and-go food orders, Mobile Entry key, contactless check-in and checkout, and more.
As part of Hyatt’s new extended cancellation policy, most reservations booked at Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort November 1, 2020 and beyond via Hyatt channels—for any future arrival date through October 31, 2021—can be cancelled at no charge up to 24 hours before scheduled arrival.

The state of Hawaii will ONLY accept test results from trusted testing and travel partners. Travelers five years of age and older will need to take a NAAT from a certified lab. Travelers will be required to complete testing no more than 72 hours before your flight’s departure time
