Travellers to the Hawaiian island of Maui are familiar with resorts in popular tourist areas like Wailea and Lahaina, but soon Hyatt will offer a new hotel option on the far east end of the island in the town of Hana.

Last year, a California-based investment group purchased the former Travaasa Hana hotel for about $25 million and has now signed a deal with Hyatt, who will operate the hotel, now called the Hana-Maui Resort, under its Destination Hotels brand as of 1 October, local travel restrictions permitting.

Located on the famed Road to Hana — which spans more than 64 miles along the spectacularly natural curvy coast of East Maui — this 75-room property is sure to be popular with those who want a serene stay away from the more-crowded resort areas of the island.

This property features guest rooms, suites, bungalows and family residences, as well as two restaurants, an indoor-outdoor spa and wellness centre, two pools, a dedicated yoga area and “a plethora of adventure-driven and cultural experiences”, according to a Hyatt press release.

Also in the press release, Hyatt revealed that the property will undergo a two-year renovation that will include all rooms, restaurants, pools and arrival areas. However, the hotel will remain open as the renovation progresses.

The best part of this news is that Hyatt’s integration of this property into its World of Hyatt loyalty programme, which means that those with Hyatt points have a new option for redeeming them in one of Maui’s most stunning locations.

Many people who visit Maui embark on the Road to Hana drive, but typically have to drive back to other parts of the island to reach their hotels at the end of the day. Now, there’s an option for using your points right in the middle of all the splendour this area offers. While it’s not on a beach, it is set on a cliff overlooking the ocean, and with only 75 rooms, it’s tough to imagine this property being anything but serene and relaxing.

This is no doubt an exciting addition to Hyatt’s portfolios, and any Hyatt aficionados who enjoy visiting Hawaii will want to put this new property on their radar.
