4WDtiki - yeah check it out, there were some locals with us when we took the tour. I don't know if the kamaaina deal still holds, but could be.

DC - those photos are fantastic! Great to see old shots like that, especially with the Kamalani canoe and also a shot of the lagoon and dining area.

Some more pics. In the last set I ended at the approach to the dining area. From this view, looking to the right is the Lagoon Terrace Lounge, and the left is the Lagoon Dining Area.

So after crossing over the bridge and under the A-frame, here's looking to the right

Great mural with the colors still bright

One thing I love about places of this pedigree is how attention was given to almost every surface in terms of texture and design, with combinations of forms (geometrical and natural) and materials (rock, wood, reed, ceramic, etc.)

Now looking the other way, to the Lagoon Dining Area

The curved supports coming down from the A-frame

After passing through, looking back up at the A-frame we just exited. Guests would see this as they come to dine or lounge.

That hut thing is the fire pit

Closer look

Stairs to mystery

Next we got to go into one of the buildings there with the hotel rooms. Of course there's no power, so it's pitch black until you go into a room, where the only light comes from the dusty windows. Here's one of those giant clam shell sinks intact. (This was almost total darkness, so I leaned on the wall to take a long exposure.)

Outside the building we were just in

Stepping back a few paces, we were just in the building on the left, and there on the right is what we've been waiting for - THE LOBBY!

Next time I'll post more images of the lobby.
