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.

Go early, there’s always a wait around peak dinner hours.
