Tells a great story.

An ad from a Hawaii brochure for the Tahitian Lanai.



Also mentions the Tahitian Hut which was located in the Tower section of the hotel.

This is a great thread! I've had a little mug from there (that I found in an antique store in Dallas), and always wondered what the Tahitian Lanai was. Looks like it was lovely. Love that giant totem sticking out of the roof.

Another view of one of the dining huts from an old brochure I picked up at an estate sale.



Still can't read the dang sign!

Those Edward Brownlee panels are just the best! I am so glad I got to photograph them and put them in Tiki Modern.
