It was a rainy Sunday late afternoon/early evening and we were stuck at our hotel wondering what to do. We decided to go to Umalu and check out their happy hour. For special hotel quests you get a card that gives you early access to their happy hour usually starts at 5pm but you have it at 4pm instead. We... More

We were staying at Hyatt and used Umalu most days for a combination of pool side drinks and food, lunches and happy hours so this review is basically a combination of all but more happy hour. Menu has rather limited healthy options but they were very accommodating to allow substitutions. Atmosphere was good although many folks watching TV sporting events... More

You can get food here pretty much all through the day and into the night. Very casual - go in pool attire or casual dinner attire. Bar food like wings and nachos, to salads and burgers. Portions are quite big, you can share some of the items. Actually, most of the items. Drinks are amazing too. One of my favorite... More

The food here was very good, the fish nachos are fantastic! The service is great. A fund spot to watch the big game and hang out in the evening.

So I rented a beach cabana at the Hyatt just to have a little peace and quiet. I was worried the service would be slow because I was far away from the pool bar but wrong was I! Right when I arrived, Mia the lovely server from Eugene, Oregon came right over and answered all my questions and got me... More

We at dinner at Umalu several times on our recent trip to Maui where we stayed at the Hyatt Regency. We really enjoyed the variety of foods they served. They were also very willing to modify dishes where possible to accommodate gluten intolerance. We also enjoyed trying out the fun tropical drinks they offered. It was romantic for just the... More

Good food, good value and convenient, something not always easy to find in large resorts. Best part, not having to get out of your bathing suit to dine here.

I recommend ordering the volcano salad, the wasabi aioli green beans, and Uncle Kimo's ahi poke nachos. We order the them on multiple occasions during our 10 day stay at the Hyatt Regency. Umalu is poolside and has great drinks and service. Harry the bartender! He's terrific, genuinely friendly and welcoming. He greeted each and every person. When he was... More
