Andaz Continues Global Expansion

If you haven't already heard of Andaz, Hyatt's boutique-style luxury brand, you will no doubt know them by the end of the year. The name has been bandied about in the news and all over Twitter this year as a whole bunch of new hotels have been announced. Here is what's on the horizon:

Though a bit behind schedule, jetsetters are still eagerly awaiting the debut of Andaz Maui at Wailea. The resort occupies the 15-acre site that was previously home to the Renaissance Wailea Beach Resort, which closed in 2007. The hotel will have 297 rooms and suites as well as seven villas. Nice touch: A series of cascading infinity pools will provide views of the Pacific. There will also be two restaurants, including Morimoto Maui. 

Just two days ago we told you about The Andaz Papagayo, which will open in Costa Rica this December. Located on the country's north Pacific coast, the Papagayo Peninsula is known for its beaches and forests populated by howler monkeys. There will be 153 rooms, including 21 suites, along with a spa, 24-hour gym, meeting rooms, two infinity pools with cascades, and three "concept restaurants" overlooking the sea.
