Such a great place!

Umalu is great! The service is really awesome and the food is awesome too! I recommend the Caesar Salad with shrimp, the Ahi Burger, and the Fish Tacos. We came here every day on our trip to Maui! One of our favorite Maui restaurants! You can always count on Umalu for a great meal!

I liked the food they had. The french fries are very, very good. Very crispy and tasty, obviously seasoned with something, but wasn't sure what it was. The service is good too as well. My wife also liked the flatbread they served.

Average to yuck...why??? Great location, a wealth of lovely local ingredients, minimal menu...fish tacos were the only ok item. Sad when the best place to eat on this property is Ululani's Shave Ice....we ate here a couple of times, Japengo, and the breakfast/room service place. Room service being the absolute worst. Stayed here 5 years ago and do not remember... More

We stayed at the Hyatt and are at umalu almost every day. The atmosphere us relaxing and fun. We had appetizers and lunch and smoothies. I had to limit myself to one smoothie a day, plus they are only $7 which is a bargain in Maui. Love the chicken sandwich and my son loved the fish tacos.

This is at a great location, out on the pool deck. They had delicious and unique salads, which I greatly appreciated. However, there were only a few options.

As a food and beverage director of a Country Club, I am shocked that after five days of drinking and dining here, that absolutely none of their employees I.D. the patrons.
