The Matchbook

Menu with great graphics

The grounds were also home to the filming of The Diamond Head game in the 70's in all its faux polynesian glory, check out this clip and the tiki podium just after the 3 min mark.

Bongofury,

Nice menu, don't remember seeing that one before.

I have a few postcards featuring the three large Tikis that were out front of the Kuilima Resort.

There was also a record recorded there by the Nanakuli Sons.

It's called The "Turtle Bay Resort," now. The structure remains. The only remnant of it's former interior glory are the carvings at the entry to the "The Sea-Breeze Room." They may have added some Tiki since the filming of "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," but the originals haven't been there for a long time. Nor have I, sadly. I have that matchbook, too. Should have included that.


Waikiki Tiki; Art, History, and Photographs.

The Del E. Webb Corporation KUILIMA swizzle.

Aloha,

Hmmm. I never noticed the design on the top of that swizzle stick. Good one!
