Multigenerational

Add some culture to your family travel at Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort, which has a long history of supporting the practice of mindful travel.

Feast at Mokapu

A true example of honoring and preserving Hawai’ian culture, the Feast of Mokapu is Hawai’i’s most authentic luxury luau. The interactive storytelling event takes visitors on a journey through the island’s history, specifically through the story of the land the resort sits on, and Hawai’ian values. Enjoy traditional Hawai’ian dishes, as well.

The resort organizes continuous charitable efforts to support the watershed.
