Despite the location sandwiched between the bustling Paia town along Hana Highway and the sandy Paia Bay, this stylish inn is refreshingly quiet and includes oceanfront and ocean-view accommodations. The original part of the property, constructed as a boarding house in 1927, reopened as a boutique property in 2008 and, due to its popularity, has been expanding ever since. Rooms are air-conditioned and each has a phone, flat-screen television, colorful artwork, iPod clock/radio,
fully stocked minibar, and bathrooms with travertine tile and spa-quality amenities. At press time, the hotel was constructing a tapas restaurant, and had just completed four new suites, an outdoor tiki bar and a rooftop lounge.
