Description:
Closed in 1983. In the 1960s, this was one of Fiji's best hotels, decked out in bamboo, tapa and tiki décor, and was a resort catering to Australian and New Zealand tourists, as well as American tourists and aircrews stopping over on the way to Auckland and Sydney, back in the days when trans-Pacific flights stopped in Fiji for refuelling.

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.

What a fantastic graphic! Thanks!

Another piece in the jigsaw puzzle, an LP featuring the resort's house band, released on New Zealand's Viking record label:

The album is quite lavish, featuring a gatefold and a booklet inside.
