Looking for Something?
“…it’s not the Hyatt, the Hilton or even the Sheraton, but it has a charming feeling of days gone by and faces the Ha`upu Mountains. Rick Scott purchased the plantation-era building a couple of years ago and gave it new paint and landscaping, then filled it with island-style furniture, flat-screen televisions, even new coffee makers. The hotel is located next to Hamura’s Saimin which has its own charm – and delicious noodles to boot. “
