Named the world's top hotel for stargazing by CNN Travel, the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa offers up an unforgettable experience to view Maui’s clear skies with a night of stargazing from their rooftop. This resort takes their night sky seriously, too. Eddie Mahoney, the Hyatt’s own NASA ambassador, guides you through several telescope stations to look at everything from the moon to star groups that are 1,400 light years away.
It was a surreal experience to be able to learn about the stars and constellations we so often just take in at a quick distracted glance.
To listen to Mahoney excitedly and dedicatedly detail the planetary views, historical impacts, and share his depth of knowledge was an unmatched experience. You don’t have to be a sky science junkie to enjoy this special outing either because Mahoney is so skilled at breaking down the science and relaying the information in easy to think of terms.
Hawaii’s location relative to the equator makes this a special spot on earth for stargazing with the ability to see nearly all the constellations throughout the year. The state also boasts low light pollution so you can get a better view of these small shining wonders.
