I don't think it's been mentioned in this thread yet that this hotel is not even called "Aku Aku" anymore. The current name is simply Best Western Woodland Hills Inn.

Here are some photos from the web site.



The second picture is interesting because it shows that the pool area hasn't changed much. Dustycajun's "little pool cabana" (see his 2009-12-07 post above) is still there. Unfortunately, that's about all I can see of interest. On the bright side, they do have free breakfast.

A cool little rendering of the Aku Aku spotted on-line.

Wow, thanks for the link. He certainly has worked on an interesting array of projects (to understate it a bit).
