Chicago-headquartered hospitality giant Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced that Hāna-Maui Resort in the Aloha State has joined its Destination Hotels brand.

The 75-room Travaasa Hāna is set to be rebranded to become Hāna-Maui Resort, operating under the Destination Hotels brand, paving the way for a whole new clientele to discover this peaceful paradise in the Pacific. We find out more.

An exciting new era

It’s been revealed that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into an agreement with California-based Mani Brothers Real Estate Group, which owns and operates Travaasa Hāna, to rebrand the resort. The property is joining Destination Hotels’ diverse collection of independent hotels, resorts and residences across North America – while each property in the portfolio remains individual, they are all connected by a commitment to embodying the spirit of where they are.

“Hyatt is excited to welcome Hāna-Maui Resort to the Destination Hotels brand and Hyatt’s Hyatt’s robust Hawaii portfolio,” said Katie Johnson, director of global independent brands for Hyatt. “With more than 40 years of operations in Hawaii, we are pleased to expand our footprint on the beautiful island of Maui. We appreciate all the Hāna destination has to offer and look forward to sharing its rich local culture with guests while providing immersive discoveries.”

Raw beauty, community and culture

This landmark resort is located within the town of Hāna on the eastern tip of Maui. Positioned above Hāna Bay, the property looks out over the Pacific Ocean, and is ideally located for experiencing the local culture and community, as well as this part of Maui’s wild rainforest and raw beauty, including the celebrated ‘road to Hāna’, consisting of 60 curves and 54 bridges leading to roadside waterfalls and plunge pools.

The resort itself encompasses 75 guest rooms, suites, bungalows and family residences, along with dining options including Hāna Ranch Restaurant, an indoor-outdoor spa, two pools, a yoga pavilion and abundant adventurous and cultural experiences. New transportation options to look forward to include private helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft flights. In tandem with its rebrand, the resort will join the World of Hyatt guest loyalty programme.

The property has currently suspended operations in light of the strict Covid19 travel restrictions, but intends to resume at the beginning of October in accordance with the state of Hawaii’s guidelines. A planned two-year phased renovation will include enhancements to all accommodation, arrival areas, dining venues and pools.

According to the TOPHOTELCHAINS database, Hyatt is currently proposing to add 334 hotels to its portfolio over the next few years:


As it continues to grow, Hyatt Hotels Corporation doesn't lose sight of what’s most important - people. Hyatt is a company that was built by family.
