Personally I like wild and busy colorful crazy ass designs... so if I could do the polyurethane thing I would find a bunch of Aloha shirt cloth and use that actual cloth with the polyurethane over it. And then if you REALLY want to get nuts... if you have the ability cut "trenches" in the floor all the way around the edges where it meets the wall and put lighting down in there, above the trenches have plexiglass pieces with the same (or maybe a different complimentary cloth) laid over it with polyurethane. Or do the same with paper that has tapa designs... either way the result is a glowing "lantern" effect.

I could also see using actual or faux tapa paper prints with polyurethane over it.

Or if you really want to drive guests to insane distraction, get a large amount of various old Hawaii postcards (probably scanned and printed...real postcards would be nutso expensive) and "tile" the overall colors in such a way that they form a tiki face, like how people do that with photos. Or you could do that also with tiki matchbook cover prints (that would be my preference since I collect them). Of course you may have guests scrambling around on the floor going crazy before they even touch a Mai Tai.
