Aloha. This is definitely an Anthurium...but I could
not tell you off hand what species this is. I have
something similar but I'll have to walk to the
greenhouse to check if I have a name. I can clearly
see a geniculum in your photo...sometimes it is
subtle. Also, this may be an immature plant so all
the characters are not well developed.
