Three postcards:



"ADI KUILA LOUNGE
Korolevu Beach Hotel is noted for its magnificent bure-type buildings and some of the finest native handicraft is to be found in the Adi Kuila Lounge."



"KOROLEVU BEACH HOTEL
In this charming room travelers may play or simply sit and enjoy the view of the palms, sea and happy bathers in the lagoon protected from rough seas by the coral reef."




"KOROLEVU TRIO
Seated in a corner of the Adi Kuila Bure, watched by giant Tikis, the Korolevu Trio plays island dance music each evening for hotel guests."


An audiovisual presentation of the hotel (parts 1 & 2):

Nice! I have those postcards, and one more I think.

Here is the luggage label.
