I beleive that the Samoa (Cocoa Beach) is now the Wakulla Suites. It is literally ~100 ft South of SR 520.

Could be. I've passed by that place many times going to the beach at the pier.

McTiki,

Thanks for the info on the Samoa. I also posted your thread on the Samoa post I started in the Locating Tiki forum.

Did it look like the original restaurant building was still there and just remodeled with the hotel built next door?

Cool card, Have not heard about the one in Filey much...and the fact they called it ButlinLAND !
That African carving is rad, and the gals look like they're naked, which is certainly more appropriate than the look of the server in this Butlins's Beachcomber photo:



I like the white lines on the floor though, so the drunks can find their way out, I guess.

Spotted this interesting add for outdoor carpet that was shot at the Mai Kai. The carpet is stated to be "Poi Proof"! More of the great Mai Kai serving gals in action. Who could that lucky guy in the chair be??

A classic. I am still bummed that that kneeling girl's head fell into the crease between page 80 and 81 in Tiki Modern (...and I still hate those unreadable page numbers, the 8 just looked like a 5 to me!)

Don't know who the guy is, but the dancing girl is Lita from Hawaii. She was featured in the 1963 Mai-Kai calendar. Here she is in some other luscious photos from that time:

Here's a Mai Kai Mystery Girl painting that just sold on ebay. This one is also in Tiki Modern on page 63. Cheers

You sure it was a painting? Looks more like a color copy/blow up of that photo in Tiki Modern to me...maybe printed on giclee/canvassy material to make it look more painted? In any case, I bet they got it from my book, the original is a slide that Tiki Kiliki provided, and I doubt there are any copies of it. How much did it fetch?

It went for $161.61. It says in the description that it is a canvas print.
