A new find. I scored a few oversized postcards from the Hawaii Kai residential development at Nana Moana.





Developed by the Kaiser Hawaii Kai development Co.



Amazing looking place.

Cool. This is where Martin Denny retired to and where I visited him with Gecko.

Always wonderful to return to this thread. Mahalo, DC

Great story Sven. Is that where the photo of you and Mr. Denny came from?

A few more recent additions from today's shopping trip.

The Kona Surf.


And the King Kamehameha Hotel


With the historic grounds depicted.

Yep, that's where that pic of me with him and his poodle was taken, DC.

The King Kam Hotel in Kona is still among my faves because it retains some of its old style features. Interesting that the temple replica is right by the hotel in the rendering, not where it ended up, further out in the lagoon. Here's a photo I took in August:


...entitled "Tourists and Tikis"

In their lobby, they have several museum-style display cases on Hawaiian culture:



I do not want to mar this fine Hotel Rendering thread with further tourist snapshots, but DC, if you start a post on the King Kam Hotel in Locating Tiki, I will put up the rest of my pics.

Picked up a new one from the Sheraton in Waikiki. This is a two-for-one as it also shows the Royal Hawaiian on the right side of the rendering.

Great example of the difference in scale between the old and the new Hawaii. Kind of reminds me of the old and new Las Vegas.

Here is an older small scale hotel from Hawaii - The Orchid Island Hotel in Hilo.






And from the mainland, and nice architectural rendering of the Aloha Motel in Miami.



The Polynesian Motel in Ocean Shores, Washington.


Finally, two motels that had the same architect:


The Cadillac Sands in Cadillac, Michigan



And the Leilani outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.


Larger postcard from the Leilani which includes the adjacent restaurant.

Time for a few more.

Two from the venerable Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Hawaii.





While in Hawaii, you must stop at the City of Refuge historical park.



Back to the mainland, Florida style.

The Hawaiian Village in Tampa.



And the Polynesian Village resort at Disney World.



Last stop, Hollywood Tropics!
