Kelvin Bloom, president of Aqua-Aston Hospitality parent company Aqua-Aston Holdings, Inc., said, "With the integration of two experienced hotel management companies, we believe that our rich expertise developed during a combined 80 years in the industry will greatly benefit our owners, guests, employees and travel partners."

Matt Bailey, president and chief operating officer of Aqua-Aston Hospitality, said a natural part of the integration process has also been to develop a refreshed identity. "Operating under the Aqua-Aston Hospitality banner, we now have a new look and have further differentiated our five brands. We want everyone to know our biggest strength, that we offer a robust portfolio of hotels for all."

The group's five brands include:

  • Aston Hotels & Resorts, a leading provider of hotels, condominium resorts and villas in Hawaii and U.S. mainland locations, is popular with travelers seeking the comforts of home, away from home.
  • Stylish, upper-mid scale hotels with plenty of personality for the savvy traveler, Aqua Hotels and Resorts provides an active, playful experience at a wide range of properties throughout Hawaii.
  • An eclectic collection of economy hotels that deliver good value for money, Lite Hotels caters to the budget traveler looking for something friendly, simple, and local.
  • Instinct Hotel Collection – formerly known as Monogram – offers distinctive experiences and personal service at noteworthy hotels and resorts.
  • Maui Condo & Home appeals to guests looking to live like a local during extended stays, and is expanding its portfolio of professionally managed condo accommodations across the islands.
