Yipes. This is all tough to swallow, although we did all kind of see a decline coming.

I await further news. I'm jonesing for a large-scale meetup because I couldn't make it to Oasis this year.

So where are we doing new year's?!?

As I said before, for all he has done (and his great personality) Casey has earned an eternal ZAZZ rating!!!!

The High Desert area of Yucca Valley would be a Great New Location for Tiki Oasis. Check out this hotel: www.yuccainn.com

Casey
Although it was totally unplanned I'm glad I could inadvertently give you the forum to tell the truth about the tropics.

I have to thank you for not making a big deal out of it sooner out of respect to Tiki News' event and the enjoyment of hundreds at Tiki Oasis. I know you wanted to scream out what assholes the tropics owners were and are but did not want all the Tiki lovers to have a tainted experience while reveling in the history of the tropics for a weekend.

Now that Oasis at the tropics has been laid to rest, let's call it as it is.

These guys are dirty rotten scoundrels and I hope that everyone here joins me in a total lack of support for their business. (I never thought I would say that about a Tiki establishment. sob, sob)

onward and upward
Otto

Casey, can you give us a list (if you have one) of other properties they own, so we can avoid doing business with them?

thanks!

WooHooWahine has a great idea. I don't know if the Yucca Inn has enough room, or even wants us, but it looks great, and it is right by Joshua Tree-I love that place. Camping could be an option for those who can't stay at the hotel. Imagine a Tiki commune in the desert if you will. Otto--give this a thought....

... you might put your energy in to "building" rather than "tearing down"...

... read "The Little Pink Booklet of Aloha" (Serge Kahili King)... to help you better express where you want to be and how to get there...

Has anyone considered this place?

I made a post about it a long time ago, as it used to be "Vacation Village" in San diego..the whole island was like the sets from "Fantasy Island"...

I stayed at the Yucca Inn last weekend and the whole time I thought about what a great venue for a tiki event it is.....There are many rooms that open to the pool and about 12 rooms that open to the grass/courtyard area. Many rooms away from the pool (for those who like quiet.) New owners just took over last Friday and might like the idea of a sell-out weekend....They also have a restaurant attached with a bar, stage and dancing area. There are other hotels close by and I'll bet the rates are considerably lower than the C.T. were. Just a thought....

Much of the Caliente's appeal for me was Casey's attitude/support/etc. Now that he is gone, the Tropics is just an empty shell....

What a shame. I think it used to be tiki/Polynesian in the 60s and 70s. Now it just looks nostalgic, upscale, and ugly IMO. At least the Half Moon Inn still has tikis on site and tropical furniture in the rooms.

Yep, that was the last time I went there..the 1970's...and it was very cool. I remember as a kid I loved the bar that my parents where allowed to take us in, and the observation tower, the many pools...it was not all that tiki, more generically tropical..but you felt like you were on a jungle island..there were many pathways thru the foliage with torches lit, and they were not rooms, but bungaloes. I have no idea what it looks like now, but then again, I always hated the desert anyway...much preferring a verdant and tropical envirement to brown dry stretches of desert or rocky mountains entirely devoid of vegetation. I wish the tiki oasis was near the beach, but then again...I guess it would not really be an "oasis"!

No matter where they have it, I am sure it will be fun.
