Hyatt Hotels has taken over management of the Hana-Maui Resort, formerly known as Travaasa Hana, under its Destination Hotels brand.
The resort, overlooking Hana Bay on the eastern tip of Maui, is slated to reopen Oct. 1, when the state plans to introduce a pretravel testing program that will allow those who test negative for coronavirus to bypass a 14-day mandatory quarantine period.
"Hyatt is excited to welcome Hana-Maui Resort to the Destination Hotels brand and Hyatt's robust Hawaii portfolio," Katie Johnson, director of global independent brands for Hyatt said in a statement. "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 Hana destination has to offer and look forward to sharing its rich local culture with guests while providing immersive discoveries."
The property's history as a resort and vacation destination dates back to 1946. It includes spacious ocean bungalows and family suites, an open-air restaurant, a spa and two pools.
In addition to the management change, the resort will undergo a two-year, phased renovation to enhance all guestrooms, arrival areas, dining outlets and pools, according to the statement.
The Hana-Maui Resort is also now part of the World of Hyatt membership loyalty program.
