Hyatt to manage Hawaii's Travaasa Hāna under Destination brand

An affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corp. has entered into a management agreement with Mani Brothers Real Estate Group, a Southern California-based commercial property firm, to rebrand the 75-room Travaasa Hāna in Hana, Hawaii, into Hāna-Maui Resort under Hyatt's Destination Hotels brand. 
“Hyatt is excited to welcome Hāna-Maui Resort to the Destination Hotels brand and 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.”
Located on the eastern tip of Maui, Hāna-Maui Resort is set above Hāna Bay overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Mani Brothers Real Estate Group acquired the 72-acre resort last year from real estate investment firm Amstar Group for an undisclosed amount. 

Hāna-Maui Resort has 75 guestrooms, suites, bungalows and family residences. Public spaces include two dining options, an indoor-outdoor spa and wellness center, two pools and a yoga pavilion. The resort will offer unique transportation options for guests with both a private helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft to Hāna in the near future.

In light of COVID-19 local travel restrictions, Hāna-Maui Resort has currently suspended operations and anticipates resuming operations on Oct. 1 in accordance with the state of Hawaii’s guidelines.  The resort plans to remain open through a planned two-year phased renovation that will enhance all accommodations, arrival areas, dining outlets and pools.
