I stayed at the Andaz for 5 days this past May for a friend's wedding. The first thing that struck me as I walked in was the modern and sleek opulence of the entrance and lobby. As you exit the open air hall leading from the driveway to the lobby, you are greeted by a breathtaking view of the ocean and the various infinity pools heading out from below you towards the beach. I had booked via a flash sale on Jetsetter, so I received a phenomenal rate for a garden view room. To my pleasant surprise, I got a room on the second floor (which is the same floor where the main outdoor bar is), with decent views of the ocean as well as the pools. Since I was on the second floor, and was one of the few single guys attending the wedding, easy access to the bar and the pools from my room was a great plus.
There were three different weddings going on at the hotel, and there were a number of very interesting people from all walks of life that I met there (a semi-famous chef, a hedge fund manager, a writer). The place had a very young and hip vibe to it which I loved. The location is extremely convenient as well if you like playing golf (which I do). The Wailea courses are literally 3 minutes away by car, and I played 2 rounds while I was there.
On a Friday and Saturday night, the (mandatory) valet parking situation can get a bit crazy, as the driveway gets jam-packed with visitors arriving to the hotel for dinner at Morimoto (an excellent restaurant I must say), or drinks at the bar who aren't necessarily staying there. Plus to make matters even crazier, there was a convention going on, which made the wait for the valet even longer at times. This is probably the only complaint I have about the place. Everything else was perfection - even the soap! It's the most unique smelling bar of soap I've ever used.
