Honolulu-based Aqua Hospitality has appointed three new general managers at properties on Oahu and the Big Island of Hawaii.

Terry Dowsett will take over as G.M. at the Hilo Naniloa Hotel on the Big Island, where he will oversee the ongoing renovation project at the 390-room oceanfront property. Dowsett had served previously as the G.M. at the Aqua Ilikai Hotel & Suites in Waikiki since 2009.

Randy You will take over as the new G.M. at the Aqua Ilikai, which will wrap up a renovation to the 176 luxury units on the property’s top four floors later this month, according to Aqua. You served previously as general manager of the Waimea Plantation Cottages on Kauai, which was added to the Coast Hotels management portfolio this summer.

Ed Saunders is the new GM at the Aqua Queen Kapiolani, located near the Honolulu Zoo on the eastern edge of Waikiki. Saunders had been the hotel’s director of sales and marketing.
