Andaz Hotel in Wailea

After five years of living in SF, Rich and I finally made it to Hawaii. We wanted to experience both the beautiful beaches and wild rainforest, so our first stop was at the Andaz Hotel in Maui. It's brand new as of September, and it's gorgeous!

We were greeted in this lobby with fresh lemonade and Hawaiian leis!

This place has FIVE pools... it sounds crazy but we didn't even know which one to choose. Such a terrible problem, I know.

Our first day, we stopped at a Hawaiian farmer's stand and tried some new fruit! We were obsessed with trying as many tropical fruits as possible for the rest of the trip. Some of our favorites were the Strawberry Papaya, Cherimoyas, Rambutan, and Passion fruit.
