I have buried a few using several techniques.
1. Coat the bottom with roofing tar and stick it in the ground.(MESSY)
2. Pour a small cement pad a little larger than the base and bury in it a piece of Flat steel bar, Rebar, Pipe, etc and after the cement cures juse erect the pole and bolt it to the steel.
3. Pour a cement pad (same size) with a 2 inch or so pipe buried in the center sticking out 1 foot.
Drill a hole same diameter as Pipe in bottom of tiki pole and once cement cures, Set the Tiki down on the pipe. ( I've used this the most but it takes precision drillind with Large bit, but is cleanest and strongest.)
Hope this helps a little.
