If morning runs on the beach aren’t quite your speed, the hotel offers a variety of options, including a sprawling set of pools and an oceanfront fitness center, both of which are open 24 hours. The waterslide in the pool area is quite a thrill and not to be missed. I didn’t get to attend any of the daily yoga or fitness classes, but I did manage to rent some snorkel gear, and set out into the crystal clear water to observe coral formations and colorful fish.

During my stay, I booked a one-hour massage treatment at Kamaha’o, a Marilyn Monroe Spa on the property. The massage was rendered professionally and I spent an additional 30 minutes decompressing in the Jacuzzi, which is gently lit by natural light from skylights above. Post-treatment, guests are invited to lounge in the relaxation room with padded chaises and enjoy cool fruit-infused water, the sea breeze, and a view of the beach. Purchase of a spa treatment also provides access to the facility’s Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, and showers for the day.,. The spa is open 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily.


There are numerous options for dining on the premises. Japengo offers steaks, seafood, and sushi. I enjoyed a blackened cod that was so tender and juicy I had to resist a third helping. A Honolulu Coffee branch is located in a small covered shopping area adjacent to the courtyard and offers dark, rich java as well as an assortment of breakfast sandwiches and pastries. Umalu, located poolside, has a selection of contemporary Hawaiian cuisine and serves drinks later than any other spot in town.

Swan Court overlooks one of the hotel’s ponds that, as the name implies, is home to a number of swans as well as other exotic birds, among them flamingos. At night it bears the name Son’z Steakhouse, although it offers numerous non-meat dishes in its menu. I enjoyed a freshly caught mahi mahi that was grilled to perfection, some thinly sliced ahi, and a number of vegetarian side dishes including a spinach and artichoke sauté and lightly fried three-cheese gnocchi, all of which were outstanding.

My last night in Maui, I attended the Drums of the Pacific Luau, which is hosted on the property nightly and draws an audience of locals and tourists from across Maui. The three hour event includes an all-you-can-eat Polynesian buffet, which features an iconic spit-roast pig, as well as fresh ahi, breaded chicken, a full dessert bar, and a number of vegetarian options such as pasta and salad. The prix fixe event also includes bottomless piña coladas and mai tais.

Unlimited access to the Hyatt Regency Club is available to those on a club floor, although, space permitting, other guests can gain entry for an additional daily fee. The Regency Club is open between 6:30 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. and presents various offerings throughout the day, including a continental breakfast, afternoon snacks, evening hors d’oeuvres, and late-night desserts. The Regency Club was a convenient spot to refuel with some coffee and get some work done outside of the room.


The Hyatt Regency Maui served as my introduction to Hawaii, its beaches, the food, and Aloha Spirit. I couldn’t have imagined a more satisfying experience. My stay was comfortable and relaxing thanks to the hotel’s excellent dining options, pool and beach areas, and comfortable lounges.  Those looking to book an event in Maui for business or pleasure should look no further.
