desired for a boutique serviced apartment-style hotel (25 rooms,
another 25 to add in second stage) right across from airport in
Pacific island country...casual all day dining with pastries,
sandwiches, great coffee, alchoholic and other beverages.
Chic/contemporary setting, quick service, reasonable prices. Similar
to cafe and bar in many airports. Will appreciate suggestions. Hot
environment so cafe and bar will be cool oasis for hotel guests and
visitors. Food variety will not be very extensive. Also looking for
name for hotel. In fact the property will have serviced apartments.

Hello Foreigner,
I will take a shot at this, though I am a little wary because I know
so little about the context/surroundings. I am going to assume that
this is an English-language country, but that your new location will
seek to draw a pretty multilingual, cosmopolitan crowd.

As I understand it, your primary request is a name for the cafe/bar
and your secondary one is a name for the apartment hotel.

For the cafe/bar the determinative words in your request, in my mind
anyway, were "cool oasis." And, I could be wrong, but I have the
impression from "island", I guess, that the setting is nautical and
that impression influenced my thinking too.

Thus these names:

The Glenn
The Windsurfer
Fan Club
The Breezeway
The Brookside
The Indigo Room
The Cove
Shady Lane
The Explorer Club
(Some of these names might be hotel names as well.)

As for the hotel:
(Again some of these might be a good cafe name):

Shelter Bay
Comfort House
Baie d'Anges  (Angels Bay)
Las Brisas
Las Palmas
Harbour House
Half Moon House
Himilaya House (quite out of context, but maybe for that reason, arresting).

Hope these names give you one you can use, or at least a direction
that might lead you to just the right one.

Best of luck with your new venture,

?Dew Drop Inn?  (It?s an old punning name ? do drop in -  but suggests
coolness ? morning dew ? and  the pun may appeal to those who see it
for the first time, and to others, who will find in it a nice
recollection of some place in their youth.  Besides, it is probably
easy for the islanders to pronounce correctly.

?Island Oasis?     ?The Oasis Inn Tahiti?  (the name of your island, of course)

?Pacific Place?    ?Bali Hai?   (from the musical South Pacific.  Was
it the fictional name of the island?)
                                                 (But the name could
already be in use on your island, however)
?Pacific Islander?s Home?       ?Flight Fugitives? Retreat?

And a free drink for me if you use one.  ?

I'd like to put my two cents worth in here, if I may.

I live in north Asia where English is not the first language of many
people. Please take this into consideration when deciding on the name
for your hotel cafe + bar: it should be easy for all people on that
island to say the name correctly in English.  For example, most
Mandarin Chinese speakers of English have problems saying the 'th'
sound correctly. Thus, they pronounce the English word 'thank' as
'sank'.  If the first language spoken by most people in your Pacific
Island is not English, try to find out the pronunciation problems they
have in English and avoid names that contain those sounds.
