Second, with regard to the properties, Andaz is much smaller and more intimate than Grand Wailea (which is quite grand). I think this is a big point of differentiation - one is a small boutique type property and one is a larger resort type property.
Thanks, goes in line with what I was thinking. I suppose I can't go wrong at either hotel if I keep my expectations in check and focus on relaxing!
