No No,

Thanks for all of your stories and history. I spotted another postcard of the Big Guy under the A-Frame before the knee surgery.

And I found a great New York School of Interior Design exhibit about the Inter-Continental hotels and Neal Prince that included some really nice photos from the Taharaa Hotel.

The inside Tiki bar.

I wonder if the Tikis and panels are from Oceanic Arts as well?

The outside bar.

The pool, what a view from the top!

Another bar.

The Captain Cook restaurant.

and a well appointed guest room.

Here is the text from the exhibit:


Wow, what a VIEW that place had! No No, thanks for the great stories, especially how the giant Maori Tiki was not allowed in and involuntarily became the the front entrance icon.

DC, the Marquesan Tiki on the right is pretty certainly from O.A., here's their catalog:

The panel also has Marquesan designs on it but it looks like it was done locally.

DC, do you know what year was the New York School of Interior Design exhibit?

January 2013. Here is a link to the exhibit. It contains photos of many other Inter-Continental hotels as well.

Well, it has been 19 months since I have been on the Tiki Central site and I am looking forward to adding a few more comments and pictures. My long absence was for good reason. My wife had a heart attack followed by 4 open heart surgeries and and a long recovery period. Taking care of her and our home on 10 acres proved too much for me to handle. We moved to a much smaller home close to town, doctors and shopping. All was well, until I had a heart attach followed by a 4 way bi pass and valve replacement. Now we take care of each other. We are leading a much slower life. Just yesterday, the Cardiologist gave me the green light to resume a normal life (with some restrictions) My next post will continue my recollections of Taharaa.
