Teresa Higa Is Hyatt Regency Maui Associate Director of Leisure Sales

Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa, the first destination resort in the world, is pleased to announce the appointment of Teresa Higa as the new associate director of leisure sales. Teresa will be responsible for all the marketing and sales initiatives to promote leisure stays at Hyatt Regency Maui. She will work closely with her team to create new experiences for group and leisure guests to bring awareness to the resort’s new products. She will also push her team to think outside the box when it comes to meetings, events and offerings at the hotel.

Fred Findlen, general manager at Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa, says, “We are thrilled to bring Teresa on board as she has impressive strategic skills and a remarkable attention to detail.”

Teresa Higa has worked on the operations and sales side of hospitality for almost 15 years and has been with Hyatt for more than six years. She began her time with Hyatt at Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort where she served as the director of group sales.

She was born and raised in Maui and attended The University of Hawaii at Manoa in Oahu where she double majored in marketing and international business with a minor in Japanese language. She is very familiar with both the island of Maui as well as the entire state of Hawaii. She married her high school sweetheart and has two daughters. As a family, they love to go to the beach and spend as much time outdoors as possible. She has been to more than 11 countries and considers herself to be an avid traveler, which she believes is key to working in the industry.

“I am delighted to join the team at Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa, and help showcase all of the amazing amenities that the resort has to offer to leisure travelers while experiencing true Hawaiian hospitality,” says Higa. “It is my job to ensure that guests continue to enjoy our beautiful island of Maui with newfound excitement and wonder. I look forward to elevating the property’s reputation and securing leisure bookings for the remainder of 2021 and beyond.”

Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa recently finished a multimillion-dollar renovation to its 810 guest rooms, including 31 suites and its lobby.
