Beginning fall 2019, Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa will begin a multimillion-dollar renovation. The rich, Hawaiian spirit will drive the renovations as the property works to revamp guest rooms, implement energy saving systems and upgrade its technology.

Led by Wimberly Interiors, the project will gather inspiration from the resort's oceanfront location. Elegant, casual textiles and contemporary lines will combine with traces of the authentic Kaanapali Beach culture. By incorporating open closets, glass lanai balconies and elevated furnishings, guest rooms will become brighter and more spacious. The total number of guest rooms will rise from 806 to 810.

“We are thrilled to announce a multimillion-dollar renovation to all of our existing guestrooms, which will enhance the guest experience,” says Fred Findlen, general manager at Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa. “The resort’s location has a rich history and strong culture that will be prominently reflected in the new design and layout of our guestrooms. We are excited to embark on this journey with Wimberly Interiors who are essential in bringing our vision to life.”

In alignment with its environmental priority, Hyatt Regency Maui will retrofit all of its air conditioning systems. The upgrades will continue with a new system allowing guests to receive their keys on their mobile devices.

Hyatt Regency Maui and Wimberly Interiors anticipate the renovations to be completed by the end of 2020.

The U.S. Travel Association has called the current moment the “Great Travel Depression,” in light of the economic effects resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Portland will be home to the first Ritz-Carlton in the Pacific Northwest. Developer BPM Real Estate Group is bringing the brand to the city, with an anticipated opening in early 2023. Plans call for a 35-story tower with 251 hotel rooms and 138 residential units, including eight penthouses.
