This is part two of the shopping guide / virtual tour of Paia  – Enjoy!  Click here to see Part 1 – 

Paia Inn – If you are looking for a hip, boutique hotel in an urban, beach-front setting, this is it.  Opened in 2008, this 5 room hotel was built in 1927, and believed to have been used as a small Japanese hotel when Paia was a bustling plantation town.  Two more cottages offer oceanfront and ocean-view accommodations.   In addition to artwork by Avi Kiriaty,  each guest room feature wireless internet, flat screen TVs with cable, A?C, private travertine tiled bathrooms, salon quality amenities, and fully-stocked mini bars.

Imrie Pippa, Tamsin, Caitlin and Lola Imrie, three sisters and their mother, opened their first shop in Westhampton Beach, NY in 2008, and the following year opening the Paia shop.  The shops offer a unique blend of the girls own designs together with outside labels, creating a closet for your every need. Imrie’s broad spectrum of price, style, color and texture, is all graced with that undefinable signature Imrie style.

Flatbread Co.- This place only serves up two things, salads and flatbread pizzas, but it does them well.  They specialize in using fresh, local ingredients, and cook the flatbreads on a huge brick oven in the middle of the restaurant.  Oh yeah, they have beer and dessert too.  Go early, there’s always a wait around peak dinner hours.

Tamara Catz – This gorgeous boutique carries even more gorgeous clothes, designed by Maui-based clothing designer Tamara Catz.  She’s known for her contemporary resort clothing, as well as wedding gowns and bathing suits. Also features locally designed jewelry.

Paia Contemporary Gallery-  Established in 2007, the gallery focuses exclusively in mixed media artists from the abstract contemporary art world, emanating from the American abstract Expressionism genre.
