Operational circa the 1960s/1970s. Can't find any current references on the Net, so I am assuming it either closed or has been renamed.

The Reef Lodge has already been referenced once on Tiki Central, in the music thread:

"For your listening & relaxing pleasure, The Reef Lodge Trio offers such varied selections as Steel guitar rag, Hawaiian wedding song, I sailed away to Fiji Islands, Isa buna, Wildwood twist & Deep in the heart of Texas..all in a lilting Polynesian style. Holiday in Fiji: Moments to remember was recorded live at the Reef Lodge in Korotogo, Fiji with a written warning on the back cover that it is NOT for distribution in Fiji. I guess they wouldn't want the workers to get TOO relaxed. Mai tai anyone? (Viking VP184, New Zealand)"

And this baggage label has popped up in various places:

But I don't recall anyone posting this:

Visitors to the Reef Lodge Hotel have admired the magnificent mural painted by New Zealand artist Jon Petrie."

I recently found another postcard of the Reef Lodge. In it you can see the mural in the postcard shown above, along with the adjacent bar:

From this well-appointed and modern lounge bar one is able to gaze out over a golden beach and calm inshore waters protected from the swell of the blue Pacific by a coral outer reef."

Nice! I had missed that mural post before. Great lounge chairs.
