For more details about Andaz Maui weddings, take a look at this guide.
Does The Andaz Maui Host Weddings?
The Andaz Maui is a Wailea resort that has been an attractive wedding venue since first opening on September 3, 2013.
This resort has plenty of space for large parties, on-site wedding designers to help you plan the perfect day, and, of course, that incredible Maui backdrop.
Wedding Packages At The Andaz Maui
The Andaz Maui offers three packages for your wedding: Dream, Forever, and Celebrate.
Each package contains a wedding designer, an arranged marriage license appointment including transport, a rehearsal, and a non-denominational ceremony officiant as the basis of the package.
All packages also include a choice of solo musician for the ceremony with amplification, and a sound system for the vows.
Learn more about each package by reading this brochure from Andaz Maui.
The Dream package is the basic package offered by the Andaz Maui, although we do use the word “basic” lightly. Included is a handtied bouquet for the bride, a boutonniere for the groom, and a lei for both members of the happy couple.
A custom wedding cake is also provided, with coordinating wedding flowers. A wedding photographer is on hand for two hours, to capture special moments by the oceanfront setting.
Chairs are also provided, but other decorations are minimal. However, with the help of the Andaz wedding designer, you can still create a unique ceremony.
The Forever package builds on the Dream package, adding another two bouquets and two boutonnieres.
The Forever package also includes a rose petal pathway leading to a 4-post bamboo canopy, draped with cloth to form the setting for your wedding.
And to get you ready, there’s $350 credit for the ‘Awili Spa and Salon.
The Celebrate is the most deluxe of the packages offered by the Andaz Maui, including ceremony arch décor and an arrangement of six floral aisle chairs.
Two mother’s wrist corsages and two father’s boutonnieres are also included in the package. The wedding photographer will have four hours to capture the magic of your ceremony.
Venues At The Andaz Maui
The Andaz Maui is found at the north end of Wailea, on South Maui.
It’s tucked slightly away from the main bustle of the resort town and overlooks the Mokapu beach. That isn’t to say it feels out of the way, but there are fewer resorts in the eye line.
One of the defining features of the Andaz Maui is the sweeping lawn areas, which face the Pacific Ocean and offer views of the coastline. These lawn spaces make up the various venues where the Andaz Maui host weddings.
The Andaz Maui offers both indoor and outdoor settings for your dream wedding.
The outdoor locations are spectacular, with the lawns perfectly framing the view that will make a fabulous background for your “I do.”
Indoor venues at the Andaz Maui are decent but do lack some of the splendor of the outdoors. Without dressings, they can resemble meeting rooms.
However, large windows let in light, and the expert Hyatt organizers can certainly add something special.
What’s On The Menu?
At Andaz Maui, food is drawn from the local area, bringing together traditional Hawaiian flavors with classic wedding choices.
The Andaz Maui will work with you to create a wedding menu to impress any guest, with local farms and freshly caught seafood forming a large basis of the offerings. Find the menu here.
The Andaz Maui also offers a Pa’ina or luau style service, with a rich Hawaiian feast taking the place of the standard wedding buffet.
Complete the day with a brunch package, featuring local coffee and hearty fare to see your guests through a busy day or wake them up from the night before.
Each Andaz Maui wedding package includes a wedding cake designed and created to the specifications of the guest.
A full bar menu is offered by Andaz Maui. The bar is included in the package, and is priced per the number of drinks consumed.
Alternatively, the bar can be priced per guest, with an additional charge for the bartender. Each bar package is designed to suit the budget guidelines of the guest.
For the top level of bar experience, include a signature cocktail on your menu. These can be customized to suit your event and are the perfect accompaniment to a tropical celebration.

What Else Do You Need To Know?

By celebrating at a Hyatt location, you can earn World of Hyatt Bonus Points to be used to claim free nights at a Hyatt hotel or resort of your choosing.
The Andaz Maui uses professional wedding designers to craft a ceremony that is perfect for you and your partner. The overall appeal of the Andaz Maui resort is that of chic luxury, with the ocean setting playing a big role in creating a romantic atmosphere.
Although families are welcome, the Andaz is known as one of the less “family-friendly” resorts on Maui. It caters more to the couples crew such as honeymooners, with less family-oriented facilities.
