Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa 

This sprawling resort is perfect for those who like to be on the go. Families adore it here as “I’m bored” moments are almost impossible. Yet there’s plenty of space for everyone, with couples finding the beach, spa, restaurants, and stargazing too good to miss.

The Hyatt Regency bags 40 acres on a seriously enviable spot on the mile-long Kaanapali Beach. Being part of an international hotel chain means the Hyatt Regency may appear to lack local authenticity. But with the wide-ranging facilities and a dazzling selection of restaurants on offer, perhaps you can forgive the slightly corporate vibes.
