Emily:  As we drove up to the Hyatt Regency in Maui, I told Daraius that from the outside, we could be driving by any of the resorts in Orlando, Florida!

Daraius:  I’ve never been to a resort in Florida, so I replied “Yeah!”  I didn’t want to pay the $20 valet parking fee, so I drove to the lobby and unloaded our bags (and Emily!) and parked in the self-parking lot which is $14 per night.

Trip Report Index:

Emily: We checked in, and were offered a choice of food and beverages as our Diamond elite amenity, but chose the 1,000 Hyatt points instead.

Daraius:  I really wanted to try the Sesame Seared Hawaiian Ahi (form the Diamond amenity list), but I wasn’t feeling well and just wanted to go to bed.  The hotel has a central atrium and 2 towers on each end (Napali and Lahaina).

Our room was in the Napali tower.  There was construction work in the lobby of the Napali tower, but we didn’t hear any noise from our room.  But that could change as the construction picks-up.

Emily:  The living room of our suite was cozy and comfortable.  You could tell that it was an older hotel, but it was still quite comfortable.

We had one room with a table and chairs, couch and chair, and TV.

The couch was a sleeper sofa, or had a pull-out bed, making this a good room for families.

The views from our suite were amazing!   Seeing the ocean with palm trees and mountains in the background, there was no mistaking that we were in Hawaii!

I appreciated that the Hawaiian decor emphasized the fact that we were in Hawaii.

While not overly spacious, the living room can easily accommodate four people.

Not Quite Supersized Living Area

The table with chairs doubled as a desk.  Daraius set up his laptop here.

Daraius: My only (small) complaint was that the table was very small and Emily and I both couldn’t work comfortably from the same desk.  Then again, when are they ever two desks to work on!

Emily: It was nice having extra space and a coffee & tea maker in the room since I didn’t have to run down to the lobby to get tea in the morning.

The living room had a flat screen TV, a fridge, and a regular coffee maker.

There was also a walk out patio…

There was a separate bedroom area.

I loved being able to wake up and see the ocean without having to get out of bed.  Daraius spent most of the first 2 days on this bed because he was under the weather.

I liked the additional privacy feature of the shutter doors separating the living area from the bedroom.  This was very handy when Daraius was sleeping and I wanted to read or do work in the living room.

I also liked the iPhone charger on the nightstand because it made charging our phones more convenient.

There was another flat screen TV, and another fridge for food and drinks. However, there was no microwave in the room.

The bedroom had another walk out patio with a beautiful view.

The bathroom was a good size and had a large countertop.

The amenities were large Spa Moana products.  They smelled very tropical and were good quality.

Daraius:  They smelled too fruity and I didn’t like them.  I’d rather eat a mango!

The shower was a standard hotel shower.

I liked being able to put both of our suitcases in the walk-in closet and have them out of sight.

The room was very spacious and comfortable. We loved the breeze that came through our windows and were lucky to stay in this suite for 2 nights!

Great write up! We’d love your review and photos of the Hyatt here if possible: https://lookintohawaii.com/hawaii/80/hyatt-regency-maui-resort-spa-hotels-maui-lahaina-hi

Hawaii is the ultimate relaxation place… I’ve been to Cape Town, South Africa and only did that compare driving along the coast, and staying in Camps Bay. My favorite island for laid back is Kauai (sp?) but for seeing things is North Shore, and visiting sights. It would be a dream to take my hubby back who has never been and to get a break from the 3 kiddos 🙂

Your travel is quite amazing and I love getting your updates!

i’m also in kansas city! i think we need to get a local group together and have daraius hold info meetings! love this blog. thanks!

Chico Escuela

Looks pretty windy there, did you go surfin? …. Please help stamp out toilet photography, they all look alike.

Million Mile Secrets

@Chico Escuela – Nope, no surfing for us.

We are staying 4 nights and plan on doing a lot of site seeing. Would you pay for the room and use a suite upgrade or just use points with a standard room if you we’re us?

Million Mile Secrets

@Whiskarina – Lol! That is true!

– Small world indeed! I must try the amenities the next time.

@Tara @ Miles To The Wild – We still had to pay for parking, but you can self-park for less. They upgraded the room because I paid for the 1st night and used a suite upgrade certificate. We did go to the luau at the Hyatt and it was okay (Emily liked it more than me, but I don’t normally like those kinds of events).

@De – I’ll post everyday, but walk to Black Rock (turn right as you see the beach) for snorkeling. The Sonz restaurant in the hotel had nice food, but was a bit dated. We loved the submarine ride from Atlantis in downtown Lahaina and the shaved ice. How long are you staying for?

@Ronf – You could pay for 1 night and use points for the other 3 and hope they will you stay all 4 nights. But, could be better to just pay points for the standard room if you won’t be spending much time in it.
