Aqua Hotels & Resorts will take over management of the 147-room Maui Beach Hotel on April 1, 2012.

“We are very pleased to be associated with Aqua Hotels. Their Hawaii-based roots and management style are very important to us and we are looking forward to a long partnership,” said Hitoshi Joke, VP of Elleair Hawaii, Inc.

The Maui Beach Hotel is centrally located on the shore of Kahului Harbor where Ka’ahumanu Avenue and Kahului Beach Road meet.

It is the only hotel in Hawaii owned by Elleair Hawaii Inc., which also owns the Elleair Maui Golf Club in Kihei, the parent company of which is Daio Paper Corporation of Japan.


Aqua Hotels & Resorts is a Hawaii-based management company founded in 2001. The company already represents 21 properties across the state.


“Maui Beach Hotel is a great addition for Aqua,” said Geoff Graf, Area Director of Operations for Aqua Hotels & Resorts. “We have an excellent Central Maui location and outstanding selection of amenities which make our hotel a great choice for travelers visiting the island for business, golf and entertainment.”
