Maui Hyatt Regency
Restaurants Review

Review of the food at the Maui Hyatt Regency on Kaanapali beach in Lahahina, Maui Hawaii. Son'z at Swan Court restaurant. Umalu, Halona Kai and the Poolside Grill at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort.



Duck  waddling through a restaurant at the Maui Hyatt. This duck has apparently escaped from the menagerie in the lobby and is looking for a 4 star lunch!

Let me start off by saying that all the Maui Hyatt restaurants serve good food. They are all somewhat expensive places to eat but no more so than in any other tourist area.

You can find less expensive food that is just as good by going into Lahaina but you would be giving up the convenience of eating at your hotel.

Also, the cheaper eateries will not have an ocean view.

Son'z at Swan Court Restaurant

Son'z at Swan Court serves a breakfast buffet each morning.

This is definitely worth the price if you want a traditional breakfast as most of the restaurants on Maui island do not serve breakfast. The few that do will be crowded and Son'z is no different.

The Hyatt Regency Maui Resort contains about 800 guest rooms and has only 2 restaurants that serve breakfast.

Go as early as you can. Tiny and I went down to eat after sleeping in and the line was not only out the door but up the stairs.

Beware the omelet station.

There aren't enough cooks working it. You could end up waiting quite a while for an overcooked omelet. Be sure to sample the fresh fruit. It is locally grown and can't be beat.

If you go to Son'z at Swan Court for dinner, try the seafood.

There was one thing that disappointed me. The Hyatt in Maui has a photographer roaming around taking pictures of diners which they later try to sell to them for $20. I hate this on thecruise ships and I didn't like it any better here.

Umala Restaurant at the Hyatt Maui

Umala is the Hawaiian word for a gathering place for shelter and nourishment. What a lovely name for a restaurant.

The food is the same dishes you will find at most American restaurants on the mainland only with a Hawaiian twist. The menu features fresh, Maui-grown produce.

Eat whatever you want for lunch but try Da Bomb for dessert. This deep fried pineapple-coconut ice cream treat is served with fresh berries and whipped cream. If that were not enough, they drizzle honey over the whole thing.

Da Bomb gets my vote for best dessert on the island.

Umalu overlooks both the pool and the ocean. You can also see the islands of Molokai and Lanai.

Halona Kai at the Hyatt Maui Regency

Halona Kai is the coffee bar in the lobby of the Maui Hyatt Regency. It overlooks the koi pond and garden.

This is a peaceful place to enjoy your morning coffee. Or espresso. Or latte, etc. You can also get a giant cinnamon roll or muffin to go with it.

The barista there is friendly and funny.

Cascades Grill & Sushi Bar

You will pay about $50 per person to have dinner here but the portions are large and the oceanfront setting is romantic especially after dusk when the tiki torches are lit.

The Huli Huli chicken (Hawaiian barbecue)is good and pairs well with the Maui onion rings.

Cascades Grill at the Maui Hyatt Regency also does a good job of preparing steak. I love a good steak but am almost afraid to order it at a place I haven't had it before so this was a pleasant surprise.

I don't eat sushi so I can't comment on that.
