Aston Appoints New General Manager at Kona By The Sea

HONOLULU (August 8, 1997) - Aston Hotels & Resorts recently appointed Mart Swartz to the position of general manager at Kona By The Sea, Aston's AAA Three-Diamond condominium resort located just south of historic Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. Swartz replaces Carol Edmondson, who has moved to Aston Royal Sea Cliff Resort as general manager.

In addition to management of the resort, Swartz will oversee the apartment owners association and ensure continued cooperation between the two entities. Most recently, Swartz served as rooms division manager for Aston's Maui Lu Resort. Prior to joining Aston in 1996, Swartz spent seven years in condominium management in Kapalua and Wailea on Maui.

"I hope to maintain the strong farnily atmosphere created by Carol and the Aston ohana (family) at the resort," Swartz said. "It's the little 'extras' and the warmth of exceptionally friendly, attentive service that bring people back to Kona By The Sea." Complete kitchens, honor bars, complimentary daily newspapers, free island-wide phone calls and a personal shopping service, are a few of the special "extras" offered at the resort.

Based in Honolulu, Aston Hotels & Resorts operates condominium resorts and hotels with more than 5,000 rooms on the four major Hawaiian islands.
