Cheapest Hyatt Hotel In Hawaii: Andaz Maui Vs Grand Vs Regent Vs Centric

Tips : Accommodation

Which is the cheapest Hyatt hotel in Hawaii when paying in cash or for earning or spending your World Of Hyatt points? Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort Vs Grand Hyatt Kauai Vs Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa Vs Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa Vs Hyatt Centric and Hyatt Place Waikiki Beach?

The cheapest both in cash and points are in Waikiki and while none of the Waikiki Hyatt options sits right on the beach. all three are a short walk from the beach.

The advantage of staying in Waikiki is that you have the two cheapest Hyatts in Hawaii here and you can eat and drink more cheaply too. There are plenty of ABC stores for groceries if you want to eat in or self-cater, and if you want to eat out, all main players are here from McDonald’s to Subway to the Cheesecake factory and so on. This makes Waikiki the cheapest place to stay on the islands and the cheapest Hyatt in Waikiki is usually the Hyatt Centric followed vs Hyatt Place Waikiki Beach, so if you want to stay in Hawaii for the least points or cash, these are your two best picks.

1. Hyatt Place Waikiki Beach

This is the cheapest Hyatt in Hawaii at just 12,000 World Of Hyatt points per night and this hotel has the cheapest resort fee or “Daily Destination Fee” of $21.00. Expect to pay in the region of $200 per night in cash.

But is it worth it and is it any good? Yes, this is a really nice budget choice in Waikiki. Rooms have stunning city views and enjoy a king-sized bed, extended living area and sofa bed. It has a small pool area flanked with loungers and free towels and it is located a short walk from the beach, a few blocks back.

It is close the eastern sands of Diamond Head, Kapiolani Park to the south, or Ala Wai golf to the north but is a long stroll away from the main action of Waikiki. Being towards Diamond Head the hotel’s location sits out of the centre of town.

2. Hyatt Centric Waikiki Beach

Hyatt Centric Waikiki Beach is situated on 349 Seaside Avenue by Royal Hawaiian Ave, arguably a more central location than Hyatt Place. It sits near shops and is an 8-minute walk from Waikiki Beach. It currently charges a daily resort fee of $37.94/night and rates start at around $200 per night plus resort fee. This hotel is a Category 4 Hyatt which means that is costs 15,000 Hyatt points per night which is slightly more expensive than the Hyatt Place above.

The main disadvantage of the hotel is being quite far away from the beach. It is also very difficult to redeem World of Hyatt points here. We checked a number of different dates up to a year in advance and could not redeem our points for the nights that we wanted.

If you want to earn Hyatt points and stay at a Hyatt which is comparatively cheap. This hotel is also great option. The hotel itself is stylish with modern rooms which have plenty of space, a gym and a decked pool area.

3. Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort

Your third option on Waikiki beach is the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa at 2424 Kalakaua Avenue, Honolulu. The daily Resort Fee here is expensive at $42 plus tax per night, which will be added to your rate. Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa features in our best club lounges in Waikiki and the lounge is one of the best features of this property and has an international feel. Just remember that this resort is behind rather than on the beach and you can see the pool area pictured above. It is more of a city hotel than a full-on luxury resort.

If you are redeeming points, a King Bed room with a Waikiki City View costs 20,000 World Of Hyatt points per night or 27,000 points if you want club lounge access included too. This is cheaper than the Hyatts below.

Even better, book this Hyatt hotel with our luxury travel concierge and you will get the following FREE benefits* as well as your usual World Of Hyatt points and status benefits:
Daily full breakfast for 2 per room
Welcome amenity
100 USD property credit per stay
Early check-in and later check out priority
Room upgrade priority.

4. Hyatt Regency Maui Resort

The Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa currently costs 25,000 World Of Hyatt points per night making it your cheapest redemption option on Maui and also one of the cheapest Hyatt Regency redemption options in Hawaii. It comes in just behind the Hyatt Regency Waikiki above in terms of costs in World of Hyatt points, but the cost of living in Waikiki is less so if you want the least expansive overall, the Hyatt Regency Waikiki is best.

Of course, you get what you pay for and the Hyatt Regency Maui is a gorgeous resort and the best Regency brand pick in terms of quality, rooms, resort experience of all the Hyatts in our top 4. It is just not the cheapest!

It is worth mentioning that if you are travelling as a family, this hotel connects to the Hyatt Residence Club Maui, Kāʻanapali Beach is condos which are larger and cost 30,000 World Of Hyatt points per night because of their size but it sits in the same location as the cheaper Hyatt Regency Maui Resort. The condo option might work out cheaper for you overall as you can share the same room.

If you are looking for action, nightlife and cheap eats, the Kāʻanapali Beach area of the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort is a great choice, particularly for kids and families. The beach is gorgeous and swimmable.

Overall, throughout the Hawaiian Islands, if you want the most bang for your points and a luxury resort in paradise, your best pick is the Hyatt Regency Maui as it is the cheapest luxury Hyatt full-on RESORT in Hawaii in points and sits on a gorgeous beach.

5. Grand Hyatt Kauai

There is only one Hyatt option in Kauai and that is the Grand Hyatt Kauai which offers a superb pool and amazing grounds. It’s one of the best of all the Hyatts on Hawaii but has one of the worst beaches.

That said, the pool complex is so good that you never need to go to the beach, and this hotel has a high number of repeat guests. This hotel has a more laid back and relaxed (quiet) atmosphere than the Hyatts above.

The Andaz and Regency on Maui both have better swimmable beaches than the Grand Hyatt Kauai. But the pool complex is so much better at the Grand Hyatt Kauai so it is hard to pick the best option. They each have their merits.

Grand Hyatt Kauai offers an individual resort and the possibility of driving to Hanalei bay which has to be the closest you will get to the Jurassic park scenery of all the islands. This is. after all, the garden island.

The Grand Hyatt Kauai which costs 25,000 World Of Hyatt points per night on redemption and is a great way to spend or earn World of Hyatt points.

6. Andaz Maui

Andaz Maui is a completely different kettle of fish from the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort even though they are both on the same island. It is also THE most expensive Hyatt on the Hawaiian Islands. It is in the same resort area as the Four Seasons Maui, one of the best Four Seasons in Hawaii.

This means that you can use many of the facilities at the Four Seasons during your stay in the resort area of Wailea. In particular, you can spend an evening in the bar and restaurants at the Four Seasons Maui whilst staying at the Andaz.

The Andaz pool area is sophisticated for couples and honeymooners, the entire resort is serene but it costs 30,000 World Of Hyatt points per night and is not cheap for cash either.
