About Danny Bowles
I grew up in Oahu and had a family cabin right on Pipeline, so of course I grew up surfing. As a young adult, my work brought me to the Big Island where I manage a private water system. My wife moved to the Big Island in 2002 from Olympia, WA. She flew for the airlines for many years and was fortunate enough to discover that Hawaii is one of the most beautiful, peaceful places in the world. Her love for flying brought her to work at Mokulele Flight Service, where I originally met her. I was taking flying lessons. For two years I thought that she had a partner until I saw her on an online dating site. I contacted her and we’ve been together ever since and are now married. We got married in Bora Bora. We bought a 206 Cessna and have enjoyed flying to the other islands. We enjoy fishing and boating to the other islands when the channel cooperates. We have recently taken up golf and have enjoyed the golf courses on the Big Island and Kauai. Between us we have six children and I have three beautiful grandchildren. We also have a border collie terrier mix and a red healer, both pound puppies.
Danny Bowles purchased this Hotel in 2010
Why Danny Bowles chose Lihue
This beautiful resort is centrally located on the Northeast side of the island, 10 minutes from the airport in Lihue. Wailua and Kapaa are 10 minutes North of us. Here you can enjoy river paddling tours, snorkel tours, waterfalls, dining, shopping, hiking, golfing and many more activities. On the North side of the island is Hanalei Bay, where they filmed The South Pacific. Here we enjoyed paddling the river, which flows into the ocean, taking in all of the wild life along the way. This is also where we discovered the Kalypso Island Bar & Grill. The lounge at Princeville Hotel is a breathtaking stop to enjoy a beverage overlooking all of Hanalei Bay. Just 10 minutes south of our place is Kalapaki Joe's Sport’s Bar & Grill and Gingbua Tai restaurant at the Harbor Mall. One of our regular stops for lunch is Keoki's Paradise Grill, in the Poipu Shopping Center. It offers a nice open air experience. I also recommend going early in the morning to Waimea Canyon before the clouds roll in and view the island of Ni’ihau. On our last trip we toured the Koloa Rum Store located at the historic Kilohana Plantation, one mile South of Lihue, between 22 North Restaurant and the Kaua’i Plantation Railway. They have samples of their rum made on Kauai. It was a fun experience. If you are a golfer, Wailua Municipal Golf Course is next door (reasonable, but always packed). The Kauai Lagoon Golf Course at the Marriott is 5 minutes away and is one of our favorites. The Puakea Golf Course is 10 minutes away, another favorite. The Kiahuna Golf Course is 20 minutes away in Poipu as well as the Poipu Golf Course (which is very nice, but more expensive). The Princeville Makai and Prince Course at Princeville, are two of the most spectacular golf courses in all of the world and just 40 minutes north and there are more. There are over 40 white sand beaches to explore on this garden isle. We highly recommend the Holo Holo Catamaran trip to Niiha
What makes this Hotel unique
We were extremely pleased from the moment we saw the view from our room on the top floor. We overlook all of the pools, waterfalls, ocean and mountains. They are great rooms for people watching too. Danny appreciated the fact that our room is just an elevator ride around the corner from the lobby and the icemaker is just down the hall. There is also a lounge, on our floor only, with a microwave. We really enjoy being pampered with the beauty of the resort and the great service. If we just want a retreat, they will even shuttle us to a shopping center and a couple of golf courses on a schedule. The restaurant is outstanding with great food, large portions and good prices. Danny enjoyed a prime rib cooked just the way he likes it. A couple of days later, he had barbecue beef ribs and there was so much. He said he felt like Fred Flintstone. We took the leftovers back to our room and heated them up the next night in the microwave and had an intimate dinner on our private lanai. I enjoy waking up to see a beautiful sunrise right over the ocean. I enjoy lounging by the pool and enjoying the food and beverage service or watching sports around the tiki bar. Danny said that the surf is great for beginners or those getting back into it. I hope to try soon. We have enjoyed long walks on the beach, which is the longest one on the island. The lounge is a great alternative for lighter fares and live entertainment. I found the business center very handy for taking care of faxing, scanning and copying. The convention centers there are great for seminars or company parties. We enjoy the convenience store in the morning for a specialty coffee and a bagel. We also have another beautiful view room, if this one is booked for the time you want.

Really Nice place
The place is great and clean. Beds are confortable. Pool and spas are beautiful. Better if you have a car to get to the city.
A Hidden Gem!
What a perfect little slice of heaven this room was! The view was spectacular, easy access to the stairs to the pool and beach or to the elevator to the lobby. The room was immaculate upon check in, the staff were incredibly friendly and the location of the hotel could not be beat! Bonus points scored for the Starbucks in the lobby, we did not even need the coffee pot in the room. Will definitely be back here for our next stay on the island!
Old Hawaiian feel
